Fun ideas for an adult birthday party include hosting a black and white party, throwing a party with a 1980s theme and having a casino party. Additional ideas are to have a golf-themed party, or a midnight in Paris party, with French food, wine and music.
Black and white parties can include black and white invitations that specify that guests should wear all white, all black or a combination. The party can include black and white balloons and streamers as decorations, while silver balloons can add a nice accent to the black and white theme. Center pieces can be white candles on mirrors with black and white confetti sprinkled around the mirror, or vases with white roses or lilies with black stones at the bottom.
If throwing an 80s party, encourage guests to dress up with styles from that decade. These could include parachute pants, jump suits, nylon track suits, wrist sweat bands and retro sneakers. Posters with pictures of graffiti and black tablecloths with neon accents work as decorations. Music can be introduced using a vintage boom box with a playlist of songs from that era.
If planning a casino party, find a company, such as 21 Nights Entertainment, that brings casino games to the venue, including dealers. If planning a more low key party, limit the entertainment to basic games such as poker and blackjack. Substitute printed money with the guest of honor's face on the fake bills. The players can then trade in their money for prizes, such as gift cards or bottles of wine, so the guests have something for which to play. A martini bar can be an addition to an upscale party.
