Whether it's the 15th or the 50th, a birthday is an occasion meant for celebration and fun with friends and family. There's no right or wrong way to enjoy a birthday, but there are a few creative ideas that will help to ensure that an upcoming birthday is truly memorable.
Have a Flashback
A birthday party doesn't have to just celebrate this year, but all the ones of the past. A party filled with food, entertainment, and decorations from the year of the special guest's birth will bring back memories while creating new ones.
If the birthday boy or girl can't find time to tour the world, a travel-themed party can make the occasion an international affair. Guests are invited to bring food from foreign countries and the party location can be decorated with a plethora of exotic decor. Also, don't forget the airplane ticket party invitations.
For a truly interactive and entertaining birthday celebration, a murder mystery party gets guests involved in finding clues and solving the case. Party planning websites or game stores offer a wide variety of mystery party kits.
Unexpected, unforgettable and hilarious things undoubtedly happen when groups of good friends get together, so getting everything on tape will keep the memories recorded forever. Plus, if taping becomes a yearly tradition, multiple years can be edited together for a full decade or more of birthday moments.
