Whether this is a milestone birthday or any age in between, you can select a theme for the party to add some excitement. Also, honor a family cook by compiling a collection of his or her best recipes. Does Dad have some favorite BBQ recipes? Does Mom have some signature dishes she makes on family get-togethers?
Get them on paper and put together an album. Add photos taken at family get-togethers when those dishes were served. Include specially written letters from you and your siblings, and other memorabilia. Present the album at the birthday party. It is a great way to keep those precious memories.
If you want to select a theme party, here are some tips.
- You don’t want it to be a normal get-together party! So take care of the invitation too. Place great emphasis on elegance and a noble design.
- Find the right location for your party that fits thematically.
- To avoid inappropriate clothing, write a few words about the dress code on the invitation.
- With music that suits your theme, you orchestrate the concept perfectly.
Some Game Idea
If you want to bring nostalgic children’s game celebration in your adult birthday party, I gathered here some games and ideas.
Blind Item Guessing
Put several items on a table. Blind fold people in the line have to touch an object and guess what it is. This is also possible with food or spices, which must be tasted. The important thing is that you make sure people cannot see anything.
The guessed object is kept as close to the keyhole and the person on the other side has to guess what it is.
Binds candies or something else to a thread and this stretched to a clothesline. Now one must try to catch the candy with hands on the back.
Gloves, scarf, hat, dice, knife, fork, and chocolate are needed. Whoever starts must try to wear gloves, a scarf and a cap as quickly as possible, and get a piece of chocolate with the knife and fork. The others are trying to roll a 6 in the meantime, as soon as possible, because whoever creates it gets the opportunity to cut chocolate. This madness ends when the chocolate has eaten.
You sit together in a circle. One of them is going to whisper something to next person. This message whispers to her from one ear to the other, to the last person. The last person now says the sentence loudly. Since nobody understands everything properly, the funniest things come out at the end.
Which one do you still remember for children’s birthday games? Which one would you like to play as an adult again? There are probably some that I missed to include. I would be happy if we collect more here.
