May 31, 2012
Of all the milestone birthdays, 21 is one of the biggest. Finally, you’re old enough to legally drink! The idea of planning a 21st birthday party might seem simple, after all, you’re turning 21, what else is there to do but bar hop with your friends and get completely drunk? But, face it, you’ll probably be spending the next few years bar hopping and getting drunk with your friends, so for your 21st birthday, why not do something special and plan a party for you and your friends? You have the rest of your life to party at the bars, so a party at home with your friends and family makes turning twenty-one a more memorable occasion. And chances are, if you’re planning your own 21st birthday party, you’re more likely to remember it instead of waking up on the bathroom floor in a fog the next morning.
Let your friends know they’re in for a different type of 21st birthday celebration by sending out 21st birthday personalized invitations for your 21st birthday party! Your personalized invitations will come preprinted with all your party info, on high-quality cardstock, and will be saving you time since you won’t spend hours filling out invitations by hand.
Alcohol may be the obvious theme for your 21st birthday party, but it doesn’t have to be the only theme! Since you’re legal to drink, that’s probably what the focus of the party is going to be, but that does not mean the whole party has to be nothing but keggers, beer pong, and wine. For a fun theme, why not go for a retro vibe with the neon paper goods and coordinating decorations, like our tie-dyed tablecover and retro flower cutouts? Add some fun 21 whirls to hang from the ceiling and your 21st birthday party decorations will be complete!
Get ready for all the drinking that’s going to happen with some fun LED Birthday Hat Light-Up cups! These reusable cups will add some fun to your party and give your guests a silly surprise as they tip their glasses. Lining the bar with flashing rainbow shot glasses is another fun way to light up your party.
Of course you’ll want to have the basic alcoholic drinks for your guests to enjoy, like beer and wine, but why not have some out-of-the-ordinary drinks to try as well? If it’s in the budget, hire a professional bartender to mix the drinks for the evening and be sure to have a fully stocked bar. This way, everyone can enjoy their favorite drinks. Or, have your of-age friends bring the makings for their favorite cocktail. This not only helps you stock your own bar, but lets you discover what cocktails you like!
Have some fun with your menu and plan alcohol-based munchies! You’ll want to have some nice hearty snacks, but don’t want to worry about the fuss of a full sit-down meal. Since most of your guests will be consuming alcohol, you need to have lots of food to fill their stomachs and keep the alcohol from hitting them too hard and too fast! But, there are many snacks and treats that will fit with your 21st birthday theme. Some ideas include beer and cheese dip and pretzels, tequila lime chicken wings, whiskey meatballs, vodka soaked cherry tomatoes, or strawberry margarita pie Bailey’s Irish Cream cake is another treat, certain to be a big hit!
Add these tasty liquor-based treats, along with standard party fare like tortilla roll-ups, chips and dip, and an ice cream sundae bar, and you’ll guests will be able to drink and nosh the night away!
So while your twenty-first birthday means you’re finally legal to drink and party at the bars, it also marks a turning point in your life, signifying the transition to adulthood.
