There are many ways to celebrate an 18th birthday, including hosting themed parties for clubbing, casinos and poker, fashion and more. Eighteenth birthdays only come around once and while some want to celebrate the arrival of adulthood in full force, others prefer to have low-key events with families and a few close friends. Parties are fun ways to celebrate milestone birthdays, and can be tailored to meet the wishes of young birthday men and women.

Some young adults may enjoy casino or poker-themed parties that resemble the sights and sounds of Las Vegas, and allow participation in informal gambling among friends and family. Casino-themed parties can take place at homes or off-site locations where decorations help create the feel of a real casino.

For girls who enjoy dressing up and fashion, having princess-themed parties are a good choice for celebrating the big day. Girls have the opportunity to dress up in their best formal attire and be as glamorous as they want. The scene can be set by appropriately decorating the walls and ceilings of chosen venues to resemble the look of ballrooms or even castles.

Parties are easy to customize and tailor to the personalities and desires of honorees. Celebrators may participate in choosing a food and drink menu, and even party favors, to ensure the event is as personal as possible.
