Most peoples favorite time of the year, their birthday! It is important to organize how and where you will celebrate your birthday in advance, otherwise proceedings can be rushed in the build up to your special day. Whether you wish to do something big for your birthday or keep it low key, it should be a joyous occasion for all involved.
With your Birthday on the horizon you should consider whether it is down to you to organize the event, or whether someone else is or might be organizing a party on your behalf. If a surprise party is being organized you will be oblivious to what is being arranged, but if not then you should ensure that the person responsible for organizing the party knows exactly what you desire, and your preferences for a great time.
Lots of people tend to go for the same old party ideas, so to help you pick out something slightly different for your big day – something more memorable – We have listed a few awesome ideas for you below:
Hire a Venue & Have a Cocktail Party
This idea is one which is fairly new as far as birthday parties go, but one which can see you and your friends have a great time. Certain venues offer an opportunity for free run of the bar, allowing you to make your own cocktails using alcohol they provide. Usually you can book slots of up to 1 hour, and during this time you can go wild making and drinking your very own cocktails!
With an unlimited free bar for that period of time, this is a great way to celebrate your birthday and get as much alcohol in as possible! These can usually set you back up to £75, but based on how many of you there are and the length of time you stay, you can certainly make it worth your while. From here you can go on to various other destinations, continuing the night by visiting other bars and clubs. You'll always remember though the time you made your own cocktails!
Get Down and Dirty with Paintballing
This is a great way to spend your birthday, especially if you’ve never had the paintball experience before. Not only does paintballing get you and all of your friends together, but it adds an element of competition as well as teamwork. Battling against the opposing team, you will fire paint cartridges at your opponent, aiming to award yourself with points for each strike. There are many elements to consider, including tactics, avoiding being hit, and firing the cartridges with accuracy. Often you will also have to capture your opponent's flag, making for an overall interesting and fun day out. Paintballing usually takes place at venues in outdoor woods, where you have a fantastic chance to spend time in the great outdoors and importantly get vital exercise. Overall the experience is great for uniting people, having fun within the competitive spirit and enjoying a lovely day out providing it is nice weather. Paintball is great fun for the whole family, but is probably less appropriate for younger ones. Despite being quite expensive, it will likely set you back considerably less than hiring a hall, and so should be explored as an idea.
Literally ‘Chill Out’ in an Ice Bar
This is another relatively new craze – with the very first ice bar being unveiled less than 20 years ago in 1994, but is definitely a memorable experience. Ice bars are located few and far between, but finding one which is close to you will see you have a time you'll never forget. Ice Bars are usually sculpted entirely of ice, and so upon entry you are given a coat to protect you and keep you warm. Being in a location which is entirely ice is mind boggling, and is especially enjoyable when combined with the fun of being out on your birthday. Again you will more than likely move on to somewhere else from here, meaning your night doesn't have to be purely restricted to the one bar. If you have the funds available (or lots of friends who are taking care of your party for you) then you could even do paintballing during the day, then hire a venue to have your cocktail party, and round it off with a trip to an ice bar! That would certainly make a day to remember.
