Decorations for The Big Day Adult Birthday Party

Decorations for your Big Day Birthday Party can be as simple or as extravagant as you want. Either way, these tips and supplies will get you started on the way to a fantastic birthday party.

Begin your decorating with The Big Day Party Kit. The kit has variations for 30th, 40th, 50th, and 60th birthdays and includes tableware, thank you notes, silver star confetti, cutlery, lime green balloons, bright blue balloons, orange curling ribbon and a blue plastic tablecover. The Deluxe Kit also includes a personalized 10” x 30” banner, Time to Party mylar balloon, azure blue crepe streamers, orange crepe streamers, and Happy Birthday pick candles. Coordinate all your decorations to the kit for a fantastic party look!

Welcome guests to your party with a Bright and Bold Personalized Vinyl Banner. The banner is printed with your custom wording on a heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl banner. Plus, the banners are available in seven different sizes and make great keepsakes for the birthday person.

A personalized lifesize standee makes an awesome focal point for your event. Use a picture from a milestone in the guest of honor’s life to make the standee. The decoration is also fun to take keepsake photos with and makes a nice touch to the birthday person’s home for years to come.

Use balloons to fill out your party space. Create balloon bunches of lime green and bright blue balloons in odd numbers (3, 5, 7…). Use orange curling ribbon to attach the balloons to the backs of chairs or to balloon weights. If you don’t have access to a helium tank, blow up the balloons and scatter them around the room or hang them from the ceiling with various lengths of curling ribbon.

Garland is a great decoration for adding accents. Use star confetti garland to outline your room, tables or around banisters.

If you’re having dancing at your party, jazz up the dance floor with special lighting effects. Outline the dance floor in twinkle lights and use a pin spotlight or a strobe light to create fun effects.

Table Decorations:

A well-decorated table is a great way to draw attention to the area where guests can snack and mingle. Decorate your tables with The Big Day Party Kit for a fun look.

First, cover your table with a blue plastic tablecover. Over the top, sprinkle silver star confetti and add a The Big Day Centerpiece or a personalized tabletop standee to the middle of your table.

Next, set each place with The Big Day Tableware. Create cutlery bundles with The Big Day napkins or personalized napkins and curling ribbon.

Accent the table with party favors guests can take home with them. Place personalized votive candles or party boxes full of candy in staggered positions on the table.

Activities for a The Big Day Birthday Party

Activities at an adult’s birthday party don’t have to be extravagant. Most guests will be happy just to enjoy snacks and conversation or maybe some dancing, but here are some ideas for activities to keep the party going.

Pass the Package

Use two props related to your party theme, or wrap two boxes to look like beautiful gifts (approximately shoe box size). Divide guests into two teams and have them form two lines. At the signal to “go”, the prop is to be passed from person to person. The catch is that guests can use any part of their bodies except their hands. If the gift touches the ground at any time, it must go back to the beginning of the line again. Whichever team manages to get the prop to the end of the line first wins the game. You may want to fill each box with little prizes or candy (enough for all), so that both teams can open the gift and be rewarded for their efforts. We have several very inexpensive prizes in our Party Favor Store. Giggling good grown-up fun!

As an alternative, provide one plastic spoon for each player. Divide guests into two teams, and have them form two lines. Have each player put the spoon handle into his/her mouth. To begin the game, put one piece of candy into the spoon of the first person in each line. Players have to pass the candy down the line – without using their hands! If the candy falls, it goes back to the start of the line. The team that gets the candy to the end of the line first wins!

Hula Hoopla

Hula hooping isn’t just for kids or 50′s Sock Hops…but it will make grown-ups feel young again! Purchase or borrow a couple of hula-hoops. They are available at discount chains for about $3.99 each. Let guests know that at a specified time there will be a “hula” contest, and encourage them to practice during the party if the mood strikes.

Name Game

Provide each guest with 5 small pieces of paper, and a pencil. Ask them to write down the names of 5 famous people…leaders, movie stars, authors, sports figures, politicians, artists, inventors, scientists, etc. Fold the papers, and put them into a hat. Seat guests in a large circle. Each round is limited to 30 seconds, so have a watch with a second hand available. The first player pulls out a name, and tries to get the person beside them to guess the name. After the name is guessed, the clue giver can continue pulling names out of the hat for the full 30 seconds. Here are the rules: They can talk, but can’t point to items. They can’t spell out the name, but can say the letter the name starts with. They can reference just about anything, but the person’s name. As an example, if the name is “Sammy Sosa”, the clue giver might say…”The guy who had almost as many homeruns as Mark McGuire in the 1998 baseball season.” “He plays for the Chicago Cubs”, etc. Both the clue “giver” and the clue “guesser” get points for as many names as they guess in the 30-second time frame. Have each participant track his/her own points. The turn then passes to the guesser, who now becomes the clue giver, and his/her neighbor becomes the new guesser. This game is a blast to play, and really is not as difficult as these instructions would make it seem! Give it a try!

Have guests take pictures with a personalized lifesized standee. You can use your own picture of the guest of honor to have the standee made in his or her size! This is especially fun for an older person. You could use a photo from a highlight of their youth. The standee makes a great keepsake after the party too.

Party Favors for The Big Day Birthday Parties

Party favors are a gracious way to say thanks to your guests for helping you celebrate your birthday. Here are some favor ideas for a The Big Day themed adult birthday party.

Create your own favor packs using favor boxes and bags. Fill a box such as a black cylinder gift box with items such as candy, keychains, gift certificates or nuts. Guests will love the thought that went into this favor!

For a fun, classy item, give out an espresso glass with banded duo gel candle. It’s a perfect favor for coffee and candle lovers alike! Plus, you can personalize the candle with your own custom imprint.

Personalized mint tins make simple but memorable favors. Have them customized with your party details printed right on the tin.

Glow in the dark favors are fun for guests of all ages. Hand out glow in the dark necklaces, bracelets, straws, mouth pieces, or cups at the door and guests will be glowing with fun all night!
