Birthdays are, obviously, very important. Whether you feel like celebrating or are bummed out for growing another year old, birthdays are the perfect excuse and one of the rare opportunities to gather your friends and family.
Let’s face it, every milestone that you achieve deserves to be celebrated.
That said, for your next birthday, if you have been slacking off because you are lazy or bummed out for feeling old, let’s kick that feeling out and try having fun. After all, who wouldn’t want to celebrate, especially when there’s a room full of your favourite people!
However, it is completely understandable if you feel out of place while planning an adult party because as kids, it was the easiest thing to do. All you had to do was to pick a theme, call up a few friends, have fun and later call it a night. Now that you have all grown up, it can be tricky to think of something that engages all the adults in the room, while being unique; something that hasn’t been done so far.
Well, now is the time where you stop with the “let’s meet at the bar for a quick dinner” or “let’s go out for a small dinner” for all your birthdays. Rather, start thinking outside the box!
To help you out, here are some of the interesting ways to have your unique birthday party!
- Spa Day
As an adult, you’d have finally understood the importance that ‘taking a pause’ holds. This means, once in a while you need to sit back, relax and forget about what is happening in your surroundings.
That said, a spa day could not only treat you with an episode full of relaxation, but the people around you will also thank you forever for organising it!
Now, for those of you who are on a budget, you can replace a professional spa with a DIY spa day at home. In this version of the spa, you can bring home some sheet-masks, scented Yankee candles, set the mood with appropriate lighting and let your friends enjoy this activity in their unique ways.
That way, it’ll be a win-win for everyone!
- DIY Wine Tasting
People have recently developed profound tastes that have forced the companies to come up with readymade DIY Wine Tasting Kits. These kits have truly helped people to try out new things, have nuanced taste and once in a while, learn something new while they’re at it.
On a different note, you can also ask your friends to bring their favourite bottle of any liquor and exchange your tastes with one another.
A Liquor Tasting Party, thus, sounds like an ideal party where you take some and give some so that everyone goes home happy.
- Make it Classy
Classy parties are suddenly vogue, so if you choose to host one of these, believe it or not, Instagram is going to be blasted with pictures from your parties. While creating this theme, you should go all in! From dresses to stilettos, tuxedos to background Jazz, everything should be touché!
Lastly, to end the party on a high note, you can simply raise a champagne toast to the happy times, to liven up your theme a tad more.
- Live ‘The Great Gatsby’ Dream
It is YOUR party, so you should make it roll according to your fantasies.
The Great Gatsby could be one of the theme parties that you wished for, so now is the opportunity to go all in! Get those flappy dresses or old-school uniforms out to celebrate your love for Great Gatsby.
If not Great Gatsby, you can choose your favourite decade and make it your theme on the invitations.
- Give Back to the Environment
Birthdays can feel meaningful if spent giving back what life has given to you; especially when you are at your lowest for feeling old on your b’day, you can consider giving back to the environment. Ask yourself if there’s any cause that you are passionate about and spend your afternoon with your inner circle volunteering for that cause.
You can also ask your friends to not give you gifts, rather donate that money to the organisation.
There are many ways that you can try to make your parties one of a kind. You can even get crafty, get those glue guns out and create a scrapbook with pictures with your friends for old times’ sake!
After all, birthdays are an excuse to get together and celebrate the milestone that you have achieved. It is about feeling full with your loved ones and once in a while, enjoying getting all the attention to yourself for the day!
