10 Unique and Interesting Birthday Party Themes

Skip the tired party hats and go for a birthday party theme that’s both unique and memorable. We’ve compiled our favorite themes that are winners for both kids and adults alike.

1. For Adults: It’s Good to Be Bad

Embrace your bad sides for this fun adult party theme. Whether you’re a fan of Orange is the New Black or you just want to embrace a unique birthday party, this one’s it. Hand out temporary prison tattoos, serve the food on cafeteria-style trays and set up a mug shot photo booth for a cool picture opportunity.

2. For Kids: Spa Party

Kids need relaxation just as much as adults do. Embrace the soothing touch of a spa by creating the spa experience for your kid’s birthday party. Manicures, pedicures, and facials are fun group activities.

3. For Adults: Pajama Party

Pajama parties aren’t just for kids. While the adults may want to skip the sleepover and end the night in their own beds, that doesn’t mean some breakfast-for-dinner and funny pajamas won’t be a kick for the older crowd. Mention the pajama requirement on the invitation, along with the waffle bar and slumber party games.

4. For Kids: Book Lovers’ Birthday

Does the birthday boy love reading books? Make it a book-themed party. Pick foods that go with his favorite kids books, like If You Give a Dog a Donut or Green Eggs and Ham. Vintage books make great decorations for walls and centerpieces.

5. For Adults: A Bargain Adventure

You want to go on an adventure for your birthday but want it to be special and accessible to all of your friends. In that case, have a budget adventure party. You only have one rule: You have to make the most of the day without spending any money. Some options include walking dogs at the ASPCA, swimming in the ocean, or hiking through the wilderness.

6. For Kids: A Hawaiian Luau

With a summer birthday, it’s a perfect time to embrace the beach atmosphere. Even if you’re land-locked a Hawaiian luau is perfect, especially if your kid loved Moana. Hand out grass skirts and leis, decorate with coconuts, and serve ham and pineapple.

7. For Adults: A Very 90s Birthday Party

Bring on the slap bracelets, Lunchables, and side ponytails for a memorable retro birthday party. Decorate the party in neon colors, pogs, and old cassette tapes and play your favorite old ’90s jams. Of course “Jock Jams” should be at the top of the DJ list.

8. For Kids: Mad Scientist Party

For the science lover, go for a mad scientist party. Provide DIY craft activities that exercise the left sides of the kids’ brains, like making take-home slime or helping a baking soda volcano erupt.

9. For Adults: Favorite Holiday

Some people are just known for their love of a certain holiday. Don’t sweat it if your birthday is no where near Halloween or Christmas. Instead, bring those holidays for you. Nothing’s weirder and more fun than a Halloween birthday party in April.
