It’s never too late to send out formal invitations for a birthday party regardless of your age. The trend for adult birthday parties is back again. With money to burn, the over-21 crowd relives the thrill of a birthday bash. Complete with gifts and goodie bags.

Location

Adults will usually choose venues where their guest can have time to interact with each other. The ideal venue for the party is a laid-back place that is spacious enough for the planned celebration. Though they go for an elaborate and fun celebration, comfort is still a factor to the party’s location. The most common places booked for such an occasion are basketball gyms, family centers, bowling alleys, miniature golf courses, and laser tag centers.

Activities

Some venues will offer an organized party depending on the rental. Usually, the party may last for 2-4 hours, it can be exclusive or shared. Exclusive venues are better for the guests to relax and interact with each other. It will give everyone the time to enjoy the activities and amenities of the venue.

Activities that adults will enjoy include games, tournaments, demonstrations, and bingo. Usually, these are reminiscent of their younger years when mom and dad would exert extra effort to ensure everyone enjoys the birthday entertainment provided by clowns or magicians.

Food

Although the trend is a child’s party, adults will not enjoy kid’s party food. Some venues will provide an option of food packages during a party. Others will provide a bar with a gourmet buffet and there are those who will allow food in their facility but will prohibit alcohol. The common package is pizza and soda though some can provide pasta and wine.

Adult birthday parties are viewed by some venue managers as a way for people to reconnect with their inner child; to once again feel the thrill of a celebration where everything is all about fun and excitement.

Contrary to popular belief, turning 40 is something you should not dread. In fact, it’s worthy of a celebration for the precious life you’ve been blessed with. You may have a few more lines on your face but at least, your bank account has a few more zeroes too.  All these only mean one thing: PARTY!

Back in your younger years, your parents spent for the party and invited most of the guests. But now that you have the money for it, you can choose the way you celebrate your party and invite those you are fond of. At this stage of your life, the friends you’re surrounded with are those who have proven their worth over the years as you weathered storms of life together.

When you’re 40, you’ve got less to prove and more to be proud of. The fun in your 50th birthday bash is something that you will really enjoy. Just give the younger guests time to warm up. They might just feel obliged at first and seem uninterested, but once the music starts and the dance floor gets packed with all your friends dancing their heart out, these youngsters will soon join in the fun of your party.

Some people choose to celebrate their 40th year with a monthly event for a whole year.  Monthly birthday activities may include but not limited to beauty treatments, mini-concerts or diving. While others, on the other hand, tend to stick to a more traditional party, where they throw a one-time birthday.

Remember, the key to celebrating your 40th birthday is to make it a celebration of “YOU”. It does not matter where you celebrate the party or who shows up, as long as it reflects the life you lead and the happiness with you, then the celebration is truly worth it.
