Your imagination is truly the limit for this type of themed party, you can even choose a time period before you or your friends were born!

Hawaii

Sunny skies, warm beaches, and hula dancers are some of the things that come to mind when you think about a Hawaiian themed party. Most of these adult parties will lean toward the luau style. Set up a tropical paradise with lots of bright colors, leis, fake palms and grass skirt on everything! Popular drinks for a luau include mai tais, pina coladas, frozen daiquiris, and Bahama Mamas! Greet everyone with a flower lei and an aloha and you are guaranteed to have a wonderful time.

Western

Can you say Yee Haw? How about Yahoo! Western themes are always a crowd favorite with blue jeans, cowboy boots, cowboy hats and country western music. You can have your very own hoe down in the backyard. Typical western fare would include barbeque, baked beans, beer, and perhaps even a few shots of bourbon.

Movie Themes

Do you and your friends have a favorite movie? Gone with the Wind, Lord of the Rings, and even some of the popular horror flicks are great fodder for an adult themed party. Decorate in the style of your chosen genre, whether it’s the deep south or middle earth, and offer food and drink that coordinates. Your friends will love the chance to dress up as their favorite character. A movie theme is a great choice for upcoming Halloween parties as well.

Magic

There is a little magic in everyone, and what could be more fun than a magic themed adult party. Top hats, wands, and magician assistant costumes are total fun. If you wanted to go all out, you could hire a professional magician for entertainment.

Las Vegas

What happens at your party stays at your party! (At least if it’s a Vegas style affair that should be the motto.) Decorate with big fuzzy dice, black and red balloons, and provide green “felted” tables for black jack and poker games. Friendly gambling will be the underlying theme and your friends can come out in their most glamorous duds.

Harvest Theme

If you need a reason for a party why not the changing of the seasons? A fall harvest party is a very popular choice for ringing in cooler temperatures and celebrating the brilliant colors of the season. Leaf shaped invitations, pumpkin and gourd decorations, and fall activities make a wonderful party. Schedule a hayride, build a bonfire, and bob for apples.

International Food

Do you enjoy dishes from around the world? Create an international foods adult theme party. Your guests could dress in traditional clothing from around the world and bring their favorite foreign dish. Catering this type of party is also a great option.

Mardi Gras

Celebrate the spirit of Louisiana no matter where you live with a Mardi Gras style party. Massive amounts of purple, green, and gold decorations are a must, as are masks and beads. Beat the winter blues with this favorite adult themed party.

Girls Only

Want a night out with just the girls? Consider a sleepover, pajama party, or spa theme. Whether you are young or young at heart nothing beats a good old fashioned sleepover with movies, games, popcorn and ice cream! Pamper, share, or cry to a good old-fashioned chick flick with your girlfriends.

How to Entertain Kids During a Baby Shower or Adult Party

Hosting a baby shower or an official event signifies that some of the guests could arrive alongside their children. Keeping kids entertained during an all-adult party could be difficult, challenging and affecting the overall party atmosphere.

In order to provide kids with entertainment during an adult party, you need to know the number of children that will be attending and their age. Once you are aware of these facts, you can plan some kid entertainment that will keep little ones occupied and entertained during the entire party.

Make Them Active Party Participants
The easiest way to help kids have fun is to make them active party participants. Children love helping and they love being treated like grownups. Distributing some ‘major’ tasks among them is a perfect idea.

Give one kid a camera and ask for party pictures. In fact, you can have several small cameras available and distributed to kids. You can even divide them in teams and have a photo competition. Let kids help with serving food or welcoming guests. All these little tasks will make little ones feel good about themselves.

Get Kids Dancing
Most kids love to dance. One way to keep them entertained is to put some music on and to stimulate children to show their moves.

This idea helps for kids to be integrated into the adult company. Everyone should be having fun at the dance floor, including the youngest individuals attending the party. Holding a competition is a suitable idea. Make kids dance or give them the chance to evaluate the dancing skills of adults.

Have a Special Activities Corner
Set a table especially for the children attending the baby shower or party. This specialized kid’s corner will give young ones the chance to have fun, while their parents are enjoying each other’s company.

Have paper and crayons available. Modeling clay is another good idea. You can also pick table games that can be played by a number of people.

Hire Someone to Entertain Kids
If you feel uncertain about handling children on your own, you can hire somebody to assist you during the party.

Babysitters and child entertainers will keep kids entertained. You can hire several individuals, in case you are expecting many kids during the party.

A clown or someone who knows the games that kids love to play will offer a helping hand, lifting the responsibility off your shoulders.

Get Movies
Kids love watching movies. They are expected to enjoy tremendously even films that have been seen in the past.

Get a wide selection of kid movies available. Assist kids in picking the film to watch since they could otherwise get in an argument. Movies will attract the attention of little ones at least for an hour and a half. Adults can use this time to enjoy the party.

Keeping children entertained during a baby shower or an all-adults party sounds more difficult said than done. It is all about knowing what children want and enjoy. Have several options available. Make sure that little ones are safe and happy and give their parents the opportunity to relax.

Have Fun With Adult Birthday Party Ideas

So why do kids get all the good birthday parties?? Adult birthday parties can be just as much fun – if not more – so here are a few adult birthday party ideas to get you thinking about how you want to celebrate someone special in your life, whether it is your mom, dad, relative or friend.

There are many adult birthday party ideas to choose from – from an specific decade-themed birthday party, or one that celebrates a love for travel, to one that is centered about what that person likes to do for fun from a “bucket list” – pick one thing off that list that they can do with a group to have an unforgettable birthday!

One of my favorite adult birthday party ideas is the “Decade Themed Party” – if he or she was born in the 1950′s, 1960′s or 1970′s (for example), use music, decorations, newspaper headlines and nostalgic items from that time period to highlight when they were born and what was happening in the world at that time. You can have a Sock Hop, complete with ’50′s music and Elvis, and an old-time juke box playing all the hits! Have a hula hoop contest or a limbo contest. Or you can celebrate the decade of Laugh In, the Beatles and Woodstock! Have peace signs and tie-dye hippie decorations, and lava lamps, and find an old 45 record player to play the tunes!

If the birthday guest enjoys traveling, why not have a “Around the World in 80 Years” (or whatever year your guest is celebrating) party? Invitations can be passports, and pick some places that the honoree has visited to spotlight with your food, decorations and adult birthday party games. You can have a slideshow and have guests guess which country the slide is from, and give the winner a prize. This works especially well if the birthday guest really did travel worldwide, and has these slides or pictures from those travels.

Have you heard of the “bucket list”? This comes from the idea that everyone has a list of things they want to do before they die – i.e. “kick the bucket”. So if you can find out what your birthday guest’s bucket list has on it, and there is one that is possible to do during a birthday party, even if it requires that guests do something a little unusual (like hang gliding or climbing a mountain), why not? Or something more usual – like singing karaoke on stage, or doing a tap dancing routine! This will definitely make the party more interesting and more enjoyable!

There are many other adult birthday party ideas, but these are just to get you started! Be creative, and remember – kids don’t need to have all the fun! We can have just as much fun – or even more!

Adult Luau Party Ideas – Fun Summer Party Theme Ideas

Looking for adult Luau party ideas? Summer is the ideal time to plan a luau. Whether you consider it a Hawaiian birthday party or a major pork cookout this party theme will go over big with all your friends and family. There is always one guy at a luau who loves to dress up in a grass skirt and dance with his shirt off, so get your camera ready to get some hysterical party pictures. Of course Mr. You Know Who will not remember a thing in the morning so the pictures will serve as proof that he is quite the party entertainer.

You will need some decorations to turn your backyard into a tropical island and home of the luau feast. Palm trees, tropical birds and fish and anything with a tiki on it are perfect to use. Hang them on fences, over railings and put some big paper flowers on each party table. You can make the flowers yourself with tissue paper. Do you remember making those giant tissue flowers as a child? It is easy to do and by using bright colored tissue paper, you make quite a decorating statement. Add some grass skirts and plastic flower leis to the mix and you’ve officially got a Hawaiian luau theme going on.

Of course, those are not the only party decorations you can have but these are a good beginning for you. And remember, more is not always necessary. I did find these cute little shot glasses with hula skirts on and did get them for my own party. They were quite a hit.

You do need some delicious food for any adult party theme you host. It does not have to be fancy food but it does have to be tasty. The ideal easy food recipes for a Luau are kabobs. Just stick some cut up chicken on the skewers along with your favorite vegetables and grill them up. Coat them with some teriyaki marinade and grill them to perfection. You can also have beef kabobs. Serve these along with some salads, some grilled veggies, rice and maybe some glazed pork. Make sure to give each of your dishes an authentic Hawaiian food name like Kahlua Pork, Tiki Tiki Chicken, Hawaiian Rice Pilaf or Poi and that will get everyone in the Hawaiian mood. Add a couple Pina Coladas to the mix and you’ve got Hawaii in your own yard. Of course if this is a family style luau just serve virgin coladas.

When we are talking desserts for a Hawaiian Luau my mouth starts to water. Serve up fresh cut up fruit on skewers for fruit kabobs. Or fix up a platter filled with fresh cut up fruit, pineapple especially, along with a dip made of yogurt and marshmallow Fluff. Perfection would be a volcano cake and you can make that in two different ways. Make an entire volcano cake the real way or serve a sheet cake with a smaller cake or cupcake on top and decorate it to look like a volcano. Either cake will get eaten up by your Luau crazed party guests, so get baking! There is also a very tasty Hawaiian Wedding cake that is easy to prepare and bake. There are also fruit dishes like Ambrosia that would fit in with this Hawaiian party theme.

Get the limbo stick out and start up the Hawaiian music because it ain’t a party without some fun, fun, fun games! A hula dancing competition would also be the ideal party game. And the hula competition will give Mr. You Know Who a chance to do his special party dance wearing his grass skirt. You want to make sure he gets a chance to show off his dancing talents. You can even have some entertainers come in and do a little authentic hula dance routines and maybe even a fire dancer. Bring the islands to your house with these fun Hawaiian Luau party ideas for adults and kids.

Valentine’s day is a special occasion to show your partner the true meaning of love. As Valentine’s day is approaching near, we all can sense love in the air. Throwing a valentine’s day party would be a great idea to make your special one feel appreciated and loved. Instead of your relationship status, you can even celebrate valentine’s day with your family and friends to show how much they mean to you. Take a look at our 2016 fun party ideas for adults to find how to celebrate 14 Feb in style.

Venue selection plays a vital part in adults party

The perfect venue selection can set the tone for the party atmosphere. You should prepare in advance, a list of guests coming to the party and then choose the venue accordingly. Best venue for adult party celebrations can be a beach house, restaurants or your house. If you are planning to throw a party on a large-scale then hotel, club or hall will prove to be a better idea.

Keep your decorations sophisticated and natural

For the purpose of decoration, stick to one golden rule: keep the decorations simple to celebrate Valentine’s day in style. A few carefully placed decorations will look more stylish like use balloons and red ribbons and let them hover up to the ceilings. Enhance the look of party venue with traditional valentine’s colors such as white, red, purple or pink. This combination will look ultra stylish and very classy. You can also use pink and red flowers to decorate your party. You should also decorate chairs and tables with doilies, heart-shaped confetti and lace tablecloths.

Valentine’s day food ideas

Serving your guests with red and pink food can look very cute and stylish. You can also add candies and chocolates in your menu at the Valentine’s day adult party. Go for a stylish and classy candy buffet display, if you want themed party food. Fill different shaped sweet jars with pink and red sweets and leave out scoops and paper sweet bags for your invited guests to help themselves to the romantic and sweet treats.

Activities and Games

Activities can help you to give a fun look to your party. Fill lots of candies in a bowl and ask the visitors to guess the number of candies. The one that guesses the closest number will win the candies and all other gifts. Question and answer is the best and the most romantic game to play on a Valentine’s Day adult party. Ask some of the per-decided questions from each pair and ask them to write down the answers separately. The duo with most matched answers will be the winner of the bumper gift hamper.

Extra Impact

If you want to provide some extra entertainment for your guests, set up a photo studio where your guests can pose with their partner or alone with props. It is an amazing idea to save perfect memories and to make the party remembered for a long time. To make the party extra Valentines, hang some stripe pink or red fabric so that it will make a festive background to take some awesome snaps.
