As a kid, it feels as if your birthday is a national holiday. You look forward to your special day all year long, usually celebrating with a long-anticipated birthday party! However, the excitement of birthday celebrations seems to die down once you reach high school.
Sure, you may celebrate your Sweet 16. Maybe you will even have a party to celebrate your entrance into adulthood at 18, but the fun seems to come to a screeching halt after your 21st birthday. We have good news: this doesn’t have to be the case! There is no reason why you can’t celebrate your birthday well into adulthood.
Tips for Planning an Adult Birthday Party
In some cases, you may have a best friend or partner planning your birthday party. However, sometimes you have to take the planning into your own hands! Whether you are planning a party for a friend or hosting your own celebration, we have a few tips to help the planning process.
Create the Guest List
Who will you invite to the party? Do you envision a family-friendly celebration or are you hoping to host a night away from the kids? By creating your guest list first you will have more clarity as you decide on activities, games, and even the menu for the party.
Let Someone Else Do the Work
The worst part of any birthday party? The cleanup! At Stokely Event Center, we handle the cleanup. And even better…it’s included in your rental fee! Fully enjoy your celebration without worrying about a checklist to complete before you leave the venue. Let’s face it – we all do enough cleanup at home, the last thing you need to do is clean up after your own birthday party!
Celebrate the Milestones
Although you may not be able to celebrate every birthday of your adult years, it is certainly important to celebrate the milestones! Thirty, forty, and fifty are all monumental milestones that are worthy of a celebration.
Plan Your Dream Menu
As adults, we often are forced to make hard decisions. This shouldn’t be the case when it comes to the menu for your birthday celebration! At Stokely Event Center, we believe that you should be able to bring in your favorite food and drink – regardless of where they come from.
Get creative with your menu! Consider serving a variety of treats from your favorite local restaurants. Maybe you want to let someone else do the work and hire a catering company or, even better, a local food truck!
Choose a Convenient Location
Unfortunately, we all have responsibilities. For some of us, it’s relieving the babysitter at home with your kids. For others, it’s simply making sure you get enough sleep to function the next day.
The best way to ensure that your friends and family can celebrate your birthday with you is to choose a convenient location! Stokely Event Center is conveniently located making it easy for your friends and family to celebrate your big day regardless of their busy schedules.
