When the alarm goes off on the morning of your birthday, what are the first thoughts that come to mind? Does The Beatles' famous Birthday tune play in your head? Or maybe you're calm and relaxed, ready for a fantastic day ahead?
No matter what your personality may be, throwing a birthday bash is the perfect way to get into the party spirit and celebrate the occasion. Still, you should make sure to pay attention to the small details so that you're comfortable.
Buy InvitationsBirthday invitations are important for your bash, but they can go from one end of the spectrum to the other.
Keep it Casual: Buy a bunch of invitations with balloons on them. Pick out a fancy font and a colorful background.
Let Your Hair Down: Adorn your invitations with glitter, or consider finding some that are musical.
Go Wild: Think in 3D. Send your invitees a small gift box with your party information inside. Before they bring a present to you, you'll be giving them a small one yourself!
Purchase DecorationsBirthday decorations for a party is important, but people who aren't comfortable with being the center of attention should make sure they plan accordingly.
Keep it Casual: Hang up a bunch of banners that say Happy Birthday on them. If you don't mind shouting your new age loud and proud, find some streamers with the number on them.
Let Your Hair Down: Take the last idea and run with it. Put out banners, balloons and streamers and cover the entire event space with them. Don't forget to decorate the kitchen and even the bathroom!
Go Wild: If you really want all eyes on you at the event, this is your chance to shine. Try finding old photos of yourself throughout the years and frame them. Hang them up around the venue so everyone can comment on how you've changed.
Stock up on suppliesBirthday party supplies are a must! Still, you can take this in any direction you want.
Keep it Casual: Purchase some paper utensils and cups that are adorned with a birthday motif.
Let Your Hair Down: Find a piñata and hang it up in the middle of the room. Keep everyone on their toes and excited to play the game until the night is nearing its end.
Go Wild: Buy a life-sized poster of yourself and place it somewhere in the event space. Hand out disposable cameras so people can take photos with your image throughout the evening.
BONUS: For kids birthday party supplies, don't be afraid to go wild - no matter what! Children love a good shindig and are bound to appreciate the creativity.
Remember, having a birthday bash is fun and exciting. It doesn't matter how old you are - looking forward to a birthday party will brighten your spirits and put an extra skip in your step.
