When it comes to celebrating your birthday, it’s always nice to mark the occasion. It might be a low-key affair with a simple dinner with your friends, or perhaps a day out somewhere with the family. You might even prefer to spend the day pampering yourself at home and meeting your friends for drinks in town later in the evening. While these are all excellent options for treating yourself on your birthday, when it comes to milestone ones, why not go all out? If you would like to make a bigger deal out of your birthday this year, milestone or not, here are some tips to help you throw an amazing birthday bash!
Hire a Venue
You can always host your birthday party at home, but who wants to deal with the clean-up? It also feels a little more special if you are hosting your birthday party at a lovely venue, too. It might be a popular cocktail bar in town, or a private room at your favorite restaurant, or an even grander venue such as hiring a boat to go around the bay or rivers if your town happens to have this. Whichever you decide, hire a special venue for your birthday party so you can enjoy your surroundings and don’t have to worry about doing the dishes.
Provide Food and Drink
Most venues will offer catering options if you would like to include this, and it is worth serving your guests some food, especially if you are also serving alcohol. If the venue you have hired doesn’t have kitchen facilities, ask if they are happy for you to hire a catering service instead. You should also get a special cake made as a treat for yourself, too! When it comes to drinks, consider having a signature cocktail served for the occasion, and plenty of sparkling wine to toast your birthday celebrations!
No party would be the same without music, and although you can create excellent playlists at home, you can beat live music. Whether it’s a band or DJ, having someone on stage encouraging your guests to get on the dancefloor is key to any special occasion. This website that lists London function bands is a good example of what you can find for your birthday party, as well as other options for alternative entertainers, such as a magician, for example.
Invite Your Guests in Advance
Make sure that you’re not leaving it until the last minute to invite your guests, otherwise, you might be disappointed when people can’t make it. As soon as you have paid the deposit for your venue, send out invites and ask people to RSVP so you can get a better idea of how many people can make it. On your invitations, you can also let your guests know if there is any particular dress code or theme that you would like them to follow for your party.
