Birthday Party Ideas for Adults

Let’s be honest: in a lot of ways, kids get to have all the fun. Their lives are filled with pizza parties, trick or treating, recess… But just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy some of the joys of childhood, one of them being a good ol’ birthday party. 

And, no, we’re not talking about meeting a couple of friends at a bar for happy hour. We mean a full-on, grown-up birthday party. Because you deserve to celebrate your 35th birthday with as much fun and hijinks as you did your 10th. Here are some ideas for birthday party activities you can do to have the time of your life.

Have a Pool Party

If you’re one of the lucky few whose birthday falls in the warmer months of the year, a pool party is a must. Imagine it: poolside barbecue, frozen margaritas, cold beers, pool floaties - the works. If you thought Marco Polo was fun as a kid, just wait until you try it with your competitive adult friends. And, as an added bonus, you’ll get a good, strong dose of vitamin D to keep yourself healthy. Just don’t forget the sunscreen.

Rent a Photo Booth

There is pretty much nothing cooler than a party with a photo booth. It’s entertainment that never gets old. Guests can visit the photo booth over and over throughout the party and always enjoy themselves. Plus, you’ll be able to keep the pictures as memories of your super cool adult birthday party for the rest of your life. Why settle for lame smartphone photos when you can remember your party with high-quality photo booth pictures? It’ll get even your most camera-shy friends cheesing for the camera.

Make Your Own Pizzas

Remember when the pizza was the best part of any kid’s birthday party? Put a grown-up spin on this cheesy birthday tradition by setting up a DIY pizza bar at your party. That way, the food doubles as an activity. People can be as picky as they want, and your health nut friends will be just as happy as those who want to load their pie up meat lovers style. If you want to take it up a notch even beyond that, you can do DIY ice cream sundaes, DIY nachos, DIY cupcakes - the options are endless.

Rent a Food Truck

If your friends are the type who love food, they will be no less than thrilled when they walk into your birthday party and find that your food offering is a food truck. It’s great because you can choose between a hundred different cuisines, and the novelty of the truck will keep your party memorable and unique. 


Use these ideas and you’ll be having people coming to you asking for advice on how to throw a birthday party in no time. Enjoy the fun!
