Birthdays are special. They are a way to rejoice in your life, celebrate your precious moments, and be thankful for another year of blessings and love. And if this year is anything better than the last, we can hope to enjoy some fun birthday bashes!
Some people throw their birthday parties, whereas many organize birthday surprises for their family or friends. The bottom line is, you get to meet up, enjoy some drinks and cake, and have a whole lot of fun. And if you are the birthday person, hopefully, you get to enjoy the gifts too!
But at times, thinking of some unique birthday celebration ideas can prove taxing. And a boring and dull party is nothing short of a disappointment. Therefore, here we bring you six things to add to your birthday celebrations this year to make them entertaining:
- An Ice Cream Bar:
I scream, you scream, we all scream for, Ice Cream! We have all chanted this in our childhood. And now that we are adults, it still has not gotten old. Because who hates Ice Cream, right? It is probably one of those universal things that everybody loves. And adding an ice cream bar to your birthday bash will make it a whole lot cooler and sweeter. Also, self-serving bars are exciting. People get to experience putting eatables together, and the experience is often unique. A cute little bar also adds significantly to the aesthetics. You can get one matching the birthday theme, and you are all set.
- Host A Game Night:
Grown-up game nights are so much fun! They are a great way to add some activities to your birthday celebrations. You can buy some games or ask your friends to bring them along. If your buddies love memes, you can look into playing ‘What Do You Meme?’ If you guys love kicking some moves, then ‘Twister’ is a game famous for adding that extra fun to parties. Or if you want an option that everybody enjoys and helps you get to know some friends better, then ‘Never Have I Ever’ is a perfect choice! You can also announce a prize for the game-winner, such as a hamper to push the players ready for action!
- An Outdoor Movie Sesh:
This year, after the pandemic restricting our lives in 2020, make sure to incorporate as many open-air parties as possible. COVID-19 made it near to impossible for many around the globe to manage outdoor fun activities. And spending time in fresh air is necessary to keep yourself sane and healthy. Of course, it is also imperative that you keep in mind the COVID-19 protocols. But if your region is safe from the pandemic now, it is best to organize an outdoor movie night for your birthday bash.
- Barbeque Dinner:
Who doesn’t love some juicy grilled steaks and kebabs? We are all in for a barbecue birthday bash, and most people we know will always be ready to chew on some well-seared meat. You can still host a dinner party, but a barbecue is just a tad more special. Firstly, you get to cook the meat right then and there, and your guests can also pitch in their cooking skills. Secondly, it makes the dinner session interactive. Sure you can sit at a party and eat. But turning it into an activity, cooking the food together, and then sitting down to eat makes it all the more memorable.
- DIY Personal Pizza Stations:
Do you and your friends love yourself some pepperonis? If pizza is a real deal, consider getting a DIY pizza station for your birthday event. It is not that big of a task. All you need are some ingredients popped on some fancy platters, pizza dough, and an oven to cook them. You can innovate and place some unique elements for guests to try out and have fun, such as pineapples or chocolate. We would love to try out chocolate pizza someday! While you are at it, though, do not forget to offer your guests some appetizers as the pizzas bake. You would not want your guests groaning with a hungry tummy now, would you?
- Hire A Chef:
Researchers proclaim that the popularity of professional chefs will go up by 10% by the year 2026. Savoring courses of gourmet meals is an exceptional experience. And to let your guests enjoy it for your birthday will be a whole different level of gratification for you.
If you think it will cost you an arm and a leg, then do not worry. Not all professional chefs charge a fortune to cook for you. Many are not that popular as yet but cook amazingly. And will jump forward to take any opportunity to showcase their culinary skills. If you are not that short on cash, you can give this idea a go! You can look around your area and review recommendations to find a chef who meets your budget and cooks some finger-licking yummy food.
Along with being fun to attend, birthday parties are also pretty thrilling to plan and organize. You only need a few exquisite ideas to make the experience more memorable. Think out of the box and consider what your guests would love doing. We have listed a few fun ways to make your birthday celebrations entertaining.
