Make This Year's Birthday One to Remember with a Harley Davidson Themed Birthday Party!
April 19, 2012
Whether the biker boy or babe in your life is big or little, make their next birthday extra special by throwing them a Harley Davidson birthday party! Even if you can’t afford to buy them a new chopper with a shiny red bow, you can afford to throw them a chopper-themed birthday that they will never forget with the help of Windy City Novelties!
The best setting for a Harley Davidson birthday party is at a local park or other outside venue if you can plan your party for spring or summer. This way, everyone can bring their bikes and show them off while enjoying the beautiful sunny weather! Send out motorcycle rally invitations with the event details and encourage everyone to bring their favorite blanket to lounge on! This will add to the picnic atmosphere as well as ensure you have enough places for people to sit. Extra points for them if their blanket has a Harley logo on it!
Have a motorcycle rally banner printed up and hang it at the park so everyone knows they’ve come to the right place for your Harley picnic! These banners are made of high-quality vinyl, so if you’re unlucky enough to have a little rain on the day of your party, your banner will still stand up to the elements. And your guests will know exactly where the party is as they ride up on their Harleys!
Having your Harley Davidson party at a park instead of at your home means you don’t have to worry about going all out for decorations, but you can still make your party area look festive! Since the traditional Harley colors are orange and black, cover the picnic tables with orange tablecloths. Just remember, you may need to use clips to keep the wind from blowing your tablecloths away! And our chopper centerpieces will be the perfect finishing touch! Add some orange and black flame pennant banners around your party area and some coordinating balloons and you’ll be good to go!
The menu for your Harley Davidson party can be as simple or complex as you want. If you don’t mind asking your friends to contribute to the party, ask everyone to pack a picnic lunch. Then, as the guests arrive, collect the baskets. When it’s time to eat, pass the baskets out at random! Everyone will get a surprise lunch to enjoy! And, just like in grade school, trading is totally allowed! Or, you can have a good old fashioned barbeque. If your venue has grills available, bring all the food yourself. Burgers, hot dogs, chicken, and fish are all crowd pleasers, and traditional picnic sides like potato and macaroni salads, deviled eggs, pasta salads, cold veggies and dip, and cold rolls are always popular choices. Just be sure to keep any mayonnaise-based dishes on ice to reduce any chance of spoiling. If it’s in the budget, you can make it even easier on yourself and have a local catering company take care of everything, down to the salt packets! You can even hire someone to roast a pig for you! Your guests won’t be able to resist the smell of roasting pork when they drive up on their Harleys!
Since you’ll be outside, plan plenty of activities to keep everyone amused. Frisbee is always a great choice, or you can tap into everyone’s competitive side with a friendly game of tug of war! Tie friends together for a three legged race or set up an obstacle course for everyone to complete. And, for a hysterical game and a terrific photo opportunity, have the adults compete in a bike race – on tricycles! Watching grown men try to squeeze onto tiny little bikes is always good for a laugh! Be sure to have the camera ready, as well as some novelty items to hand out as prizes. Flashing motorcycle clip ons, temporary armband tattoos, magnetic compasses, and chain link necklaces all make great party favor choices!
Planning a Harley Davidson themed birthday party can be great fun for any biker fan and when you can have the party outside it’ll make any biker fan even happier. After all, what better way to cap off a great day of riding down the open road than spending it with friends, enjoying good company, great food, and lots of birthday cake?
