Are you tired of throwing the same old birthday parties for your friends? If you’re looking for some new and exciting ideas, we’ve got you covered! This blog post will discuss six budget-friendly tips for throwing an adult birthday party. Whether you’re looking to save money or just want to have a more low-key celebration, these tips will help make your party a success.
1. Have a Theme
Themes aren’t just for kids’ birthday parties; adults love a good theme party too! Your party doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive either – think about a movie you and your friends like or an era that always brings back memories (i.e., the 90s). Whatever kind of themed event you go with, make sure you’re having fun with it! Don’t forget to dress up and decorate accordingly, either.
2. Choose a Location Wisely
If you want to keep your party budget low, consider hosting your adult birthday party at home or a close friend’s house instead of renting out a banquet hall or restaurant. If you decide to go this route, make sure the location fits the theme of your party. For example, if you’re going for a formal ballroom-themed party, do not host it at someone’s house where their dog has free reign of the living room.
3. Supply Cigars and Drinks
If you’re throwing a party for someone who likes to enjoy an occasional cigar and drink, consider investing in some of their favorite cigars and alcohol. You can even customize the cigar and drink selections so that it’s perfect for the guest of honor!
4. Play Throwback Music
One of the best parts about turning a certain age is reminiscing on the good ol’ days. Relive some of your favorite memories with your friends by playing throwback music while you’re hanging out. Not only does this take you down memory lane, but it’s also a great way to bond with your friends while catching up. You can even create a Spotify playlist ahead of time so that you don’t have to worry about the music while you’re busy hosting your guests!
5. Set Up a Photo Booth
Everyone loves taking silly pictures from time to time. One budget-friendly way you can step up your photo-sharing is by setting up a DIY photo booth complete with fun signs, silly props, and of course, some cameras! Not only does this give the guests something fun to do as they wait for their food, but it also opens up the door for lots of laughs.
6. Give Goody Bags
It’s so much fun when your guests leave with a bit of party favor in hand, especially if it goes along with the theme! The best part about these is that you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on them either! Here are some ideas for inexpensive yet memorable goody bags:
• Custom water bottles filled with candy or even small toys that fit the theme.
• Mini bottles of alcohol are always a hit, especially if you’re celebrating someone’s 21st birthday.
• Playing cards with customized labels, stickers, or even pictures.
• Mini bottles of bubbles are always fun for kids and adults alike.
