The 21st Party Theme
To throw a fantastic twenty-first birthday party, you need a stunning theme that will help set the tone for the entire event. Invite guests to come in costumes or keep things sophisticated and classy while still setting the stage for an incredible evening: there are plenty of theme options available. Try some of these great ideas.
Host a Masquerade
Traditionally, when people dressed up for a masquerade, no one had any idea who was who. Of course, there were plenty of assumptions made and lots of fun to go around! For your 21st birthday bash, consider hosting a masquerade of your own. Invite everyone to show up in fantastic themed costumes or provide masks at the door so that you can be sure everyone will participate and have a blast.
Go White and Gold
Do you want to set the stage for a stylish 21st that everyone will be sure to remember? Create a white and gold theme. This sophisticated look will ensure that everyone is dressed their best while setting the stage for a truly fantastic celebration. From white and gold decorations to guests who are dressed in your signature colours, a white and gold theme can help create a stunning evening. Don’t forget the sparkling golden wine or champagne to round things off!
Go Back to School
Your loved one’s 21st birthday is a great opportunity to celebrate leaving childhood behind. They’re all grown up: no more school, no more teachers, no more childhood. Instead of setting it aside right now, however, offer one last night of fun. Set up folding chalkboards or whiteboards around the room, have everyone dress up in an outfit reminiscent of an old school uniform, and get ready to celebrate!
Get a Little Childish
It’s not just school that’s left behind on the 21st birthday. There are a lot of childish pursuits that simply are no more as you enter adulthood–but that doesn’t mean you can’t have one last blast! Break out the balloons and stuffed animals, add some fun party games from your childhood, and get a little childish together. You’ll be amazed by how much fun you’ll have trying those old games and activities all over again as you help your friend kiss childhood goodbye.
Play Some Adult Games
Blackjack: the famous game of 21 can form the backdrop for your 21st birthday bash. Decorate your venue to look just like a casino, complete with tables. Go forward with some actual gambling, including penny bets, or just toss out the chips and see who is able to collect the most by the end of the night.
