What are the best birthday party ideas?

This is a big question and one with many factors to consider. Whether you’re throwing a birthday bash for your best buddy, or you’re organising your own memorable event, you’ll need to decide what vibe you’re after. Do you want a sophisticated soiree of cocktails, nibbles and Afternoon Tea? Or do you want to go all out with an explosive adventure activity such as Paintballing, Bubble Football or a Driving Experience? Some of the best ideas are often the simplest, so make sure to gauge the budget, your guest’s availability and the type of event you want to organise.

Where are some good places to have a birthday party?

This really depends on the weather and your budget. During the summer, you’ll probably want to throw a birthday party outside in the sunshine. Whether you want to stay in the city or venture into the countryside, we have lots of fun outdoor activities that the birthday girl or boy will love. For chillier days, you can enjoy some of our most popular activities under a warm roof. You can go Chocolate Making or ride the Afternoon Tea Bus. We have activities in many major cities around the UK, so take a browse through our listings and pick your favourite!

How can I celebrate my birthday party at home?

Just because you’ve got a birthday coming up, doesn’t mean you have to splash out on the town. Some of the best birthday parties can take place in your own living room and we have a fantastic selection of mobile activities for you to enjoy. Invite a male model around for a spot of Nude Life Drawing or indulge in a two-hour Cocktail Making workshop in your very own kitchen. The rest of your evening can be filled with drinks, games and laughter. So, what are you waiting for? Get your bunting up, bring out the booze and have a ball!

What are some inexpensive birthday party ideas?

A birthday on a budget can be a whole lot of fun. It means thinking outside of the box, often requiring you to add your own creative flair to the event. Think homemade bunting, cakes, shop-bought prosecco and hilarious party games. This can all be done on the beach, in the park, or in your own back garden! However, if you want to up the ante a little, we have lots of cheaper experiences that you and your friends can enjoy. Axe Throwing starts at around £20 per person and is a hilarious sport to enjoy at the pub or in an open field. Or, if you fancy getting your groove on, an 80s Dance Class is just £25 per person.

What are the best party themes?

This is the fun part! Choosing your birthday party theme is like choosing your favourite ice cream. It should be easy and totally fitting with the birthday boy or girl’s personality. Here are some ideas to get you started: If the birthday boy or girl loves dressing up, then a themed costume party is an absolute must. You could pick their favourite movie, era or cartoon character. Some classic themes include Bond 007, Pirates, Festival and Gangster and Molls. We have lots of experiences that will allow you to bring your costumes with you and will even encourage dress up! Why not book a themed ’80s Dance Class or Lip Sync Battle where you and your mates can really go to town? If you want to go a bit classier, you could book you and your mates into a fancy restaurant. Think cocktail dresses, tuxedos and sparkly make up. You could even pick a theme as simple as a bar crawl, the theme being: Tequila! You don’t need to dress up to have a memorable themed birthday party.

How do you choose a party theme?

If you’re not sure where to begin, start by writing down a list of the birthday boy or girl’s favourite things. Write down their favourite colour, animal, movie, band and hobby. Already you’ll have a colour theme, potential dress-up options and playlist. If your mate spends a lot of time playing video games, you could treat them to an immersive Zombie Experience or Paintball session. If they enjoy watching sports, you could book them onto a round of Footgolf, where they’ll combine two popular games into one. Be creative and make it personal. Trust us, this will be a birthday party they will never forget.

What time should a birthday party start?

Birthday parties can start anytime between late morning, the best time to enjoy Bottomless Brunch, and late evening where you might embark on a pub crawl or hit the nightclubs. Depending on your style, you may want to turn it into a long birthday weekend in Europe, starting on the Friday and finishing on the Sunday. Or you could make it super simple with an Escape Room in the afternoon, followed by a Three Course Meal in town.

At what age do you stop throwing birthday parties?

The simple answer is: Never! Whether you’re one or 100, a birthday party is a fantastic excuse to get together with friends and celebrate YOU and your mates.

How many people is a good amount for a party?

There isn’t a perfect amount. It really depends on the birthday experience you choose. Some of our activities have a set maximum of people that can attend, whereas others allow 150+! (Seriously though, you don’t have that many friends.) This day is all about you or your best mate, so you don’t need to invite everyone you’ve ever known. Make sure to bring along your closest friends and family and we can guarantee you’ll have a birthday party to remember.
