Some Tips For Throwing A Big Birthday Bash!

People have birthday parties every year until they grow old enough to hide from them, but some years are more important than others and deserve something a bit more than just a party- they require a birthday bash! Sweet 16 is a good year to have your first birthday bash, followed by your 18th birthday, which all young Australians revere as a holy day because it means they are grown up enough to drink legally! After that it’s 20, followed by 25, 30, 35, and so on until you start avoiding the day after 40. If you manage to make it to 90 the bashes begin again, topping off with a big bash at 100, after which every year after is considered special, although you may be too old to enjoy it as much as you used to.

So, if you are planning a birthday bash for yourself, a friend, or a loved one, here are some ideas to help you make it extra special!

Light It Up – Nothing says party like lots of lights, go with a bespoke service like Events Made Special & Flexible Neon which can make you giant lighted numbers and names, custom neon messages, strings of party lights to festoon everywhere, and more!

Pick A Theme – People love fancy dress so this is a great opportunity to create a night to remember! be sure to pick a theme that is sure to tickle the birthday boy or girl, like their favourite book, movie, music, art, time period, or culture, and run with it! Decorate accordingly so everyone will feel immersed in the fantasy. For example, one of the most popular themes for kids of all ages is Star Wars, all your guests have to do is decide which side of The Force they are on, dark or light. Wouldn’t you want to be in a room where all the girls are dressed like Princess Leia or all the boys like Han Solo? Or, just go as a droid, beep-boop-beep!

The Food – This is one time where it’s OK to say “Let them eat cake!”, just make sure they can have it with ice cream! The most important thing is to pick the birthday person’s favourite flavours, after that try to tie them into the theme. Since this is a bash, go all out and order a huge cake with lots of fancy decorations on it! It’s a good idea to balance all the sweets out with some savoury appetizers, or light up the barbecue and have your backyard chef cook up crispy delights to the guest’s preferences. You can never have too much food, so go for the gusto and lay it on thick over that snack table!

Music – Since this is indeed a bash, make it super special by hiring a live band to play! Your birthday person will feel like a superstar as they walk in serenaded by their favourite song (make sure you hire a band that knows it!) and then everyone can dance the night away in swinging style!

The main thing to remember when planning a birthday bash is the most important person to please is the one having the birthday!
