Some birthday party ideas for adults include a Midnight in Paris theme, a rock star party and a casino party. For the birthday boy or girl stuck in the past, there are also retro or 80s party themes.
A good adult birthday party can transport the partygoers to another time or place, such as a Moroccan party theme. The planner can bring the Middle East to life by hanging exotic, jewel-toned fabric on the walls, decorating the floors with rich rugs and using candles as centerpieces to set the mood. In the background, Moroccan music plays while the partygoers feast on authentic Moroccan cuisine, such as couscous, marinated olives and different cheeses.
A similar theme is Midnight in Paris, hearkening back to 1920s Paris. The planner decorates by hanging up vintage-looking posters depicting French landmarks and buildings and using fringed lamps for lighting. The tables can be decorated with black and white tablecloths with red dishes to simulate a French bistro. Authentic French cuisine served at such a party starts with French cheeses and fruit for appetizers, coq au vin chicken and crispy baguettes as a main dish and pastries or crepes for dessert. The partygoers can arrive in flapper-era costumes.
