Another year older, and another year wiser. A birthday will bring up a number of emotions for people, usually either happiness or slight panic that another year has passed so quickly! A birthday is an important day that requires a special celebration. Whether you prefer small and intimate celebrations, or a more elaborate party, there are a number of things that you can do to celebrate your special day. This article takes a look at five fab ideas for celebrating your birthday in style.
A fail proof and classic way to celebrate any birthday is to have a lovely meal at a restaurant. Why not choose somewhere extra special to make sure that you enjoy some delicious foods? You should check online for reviews to ensure that the restaurant has a great reputation and lots of happy customers. Invite close family and friends for a big celebration, or enjoy an intimate meal with a loved one on your birthday. If you are taking a loved one to dinner then you can even call the restaurant in advance and ask them to bring out a special cake for them.
A surprise party is a fun way to celebrate the birthday of a friend or loved one. It does take a lot of planning, and you will need to be discreet to make sure that the surprise is not ruined, but it is worth it in the long run. Start by creating a guestlist and then use online social networking sites, such as Facebook, to send out digital invitations. Just make sure that the event is set to private and that everyone knows that it is supposed to be a secret.
You can make the surprise party extra special by asking guests to write something about the birthday boy or girl, or to scan you a photo of them. You can then use these to make a collage or film which can be played at the event.
Another alternative to a surprise party is to have a reverse surprise party. Simply book a table for you and your loved one at a beautiful restaurant. You should then have a few close friends and family members ‘accidently’ turn up 10 min later on another table. Keep this going until your loved one clicks that it is a set up, and you can all enjoy a lovely meal together. Just make sure that the restaurant is in on this at the time.
If you are planning a birthday for someone who loves sports, then why not treat them to a special sports themed day out? This can include tickets to their favourite teams matches and drinks at a sports bar. You can complete the day by giving them a special signed T-shirt from a player too.
Adventurous souls may want to get out and about and work up a sweat on their birthday. While this may not be for everyone, it will certainly provide you with a birthday to remember. Just a few ideas can include skydiving, bungee jumping, go-karting or abseiling.
There are also family friendly options available for celebrating your birthday. Bowling will provide a fun day out for all of the family, while a trip to the cinema may be what you need to keep the kids entertained for an hour or two. You can also choose restaurants that cater for kids. Or if the weather is great you can plan a picnic for everyone to attend.
So there you have it, several different ways that you can celebrate your birthday. Have a lovely day.
