5 Awesome Adult Birthday Party Ideas
Celebrations will make you feel young again. Happiness is good for your health, making this an adult decision! Read on to discover 5 unique birthday party ideas for adults.
1. Prohibition Party
Throwing an adult party themed around prohibition might sound a little lame. However, some of America’s best parties took place at speakeasies during the 1920s. After all, what’s more fun than touching on taboo?
This type of party screams classy rebellion. Encourage your guests to dress to impress with vintage attire. Wow your guests by recreating a speakeasy with historical accuracy.
Do this by:
- cluing them in on the location, rather than giving them directions
- recreating the speakeasy atmosphere with dark lighting and 1920s jazz
- hiring a pianist for a surprise appearance
- serving old fashioned drinks, in the birthing room of cocktails
Look to Gatsby for inspiration. This is one of the most exciting birthday party ideas for adults if planned correctly.
2. Escape Room
If you love mystery and thrill, you will love an escape room birthday party! These experiences immerse you into real-life themed puzzles.
You can play the part in a museum heist or fall into a hostage role, working with your friends toward an escape to victory. This type of party comes all set up for you and only takes an hour of your time, making it fit perfectly into a busy schedule.
3. Karaoke Night
When it comes to birthday ideas for adults, a karaoke party hits the note. It does not require a ton of set up and will provide hours of fun.
If you do it at home, you want snacks and drinks. Set the karaoke machine up to a large television screen and hook up surround sound speakers. Black lights and a disco ball will give you a little added effect.
Better yet, book a karaoke room following your escape room adventure! This will give you a perfect way to wind down and enjoy a couple of drinks before ending the party.
4. Float Party
If you loved pool parties as a kid, then throw a pool-float party for your summer birthday. Throwing it at night will make it feel more adult.
Offer hors d’oeuvres, umbrella cocktails, and an assortment of giant pool floats. Amp up the night with a DJ playing EDM. Your guests will love feeling like big kids again.
5. Wine Tasting
If you want something simple and classy, throw a wine tasting party. If you choose to do it at home, offer upscale appetizers, like:
- shrimp cocktail
- crab rangoon
- spinach and artichoke dip
- fresh fruit
- a variety of nuts
Play light jazz or classical music for a little atmosphere.
If you live near wineries, rent a limo bus for an exciting tour. This will keep your guests together and safe for unique birthday party fun.
