Ideas for Your Birthday Party

We can’t think of anything more fun than a well-planned and well-executed birthday party, except for Christmas. If you think about it, even Christmas is one giant birthday party for Jesus too!

So, really, there’s nothing more fun than a fabulous birthday party. 

If you want to make the most of this major life event, check out our best birthday party ideas for a terrific celebration!

Theme Parties for the Win

No matter the age, theme parties are a hit. It’s a great way of celebrating not only the birth of the person but also showcasing their personalities and preferences.

While most theme parties are prepared for young children, you can also set up a birthday party revolving around a theme close to an adult’s heart. Just make sure you get the right party supplies and decorate accordingly.

You can get customized cakes to fit your theme. If you’re feeling extra, you can also give dress code instructions for your guests to follow.


While it may sound extravagant, hosting a fireworks party is easy. You just have to make sure you have a great venue.

The best place to light fireworks is in the backyard, but you can also try it on a private rooftop. Be mindful of trees and make sure you won’t disturb neighbours or pets.

We also suggest avoiding fire hazards so you’re not at risk of setting a fire. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher handy and that you’re in touch with the fire department for extra insurance.

Al Fresco 

Outdoor parties are always fun, but you can step it up by setting up an al fresco dinner party for your family and friends. 

Gardens are the perfect venue for al fresco dining, and the best part is you can arrange it for whatever time of day fits you. 

Lunch parties are great for a younger crowd, but if you’re inviting mainly adult guests you can turn it into a cocktail party come evening.

Hang Out Til Happy Hour

As adults, birthdays are one of the best excuses to go out and get drunk. If you don’t want to bother preparing for a party yourself, you can just take the party somewhere else.

The best bars in Edmonton can help you let loose and have fun. If you’re looking for a specific crowd, you can also try going to a sports bar for a casual night out with friends.

To get the most out of your birthday drinks, you can plan to hang out during happy hour in the best happy hour spots in Edmonton. 

Carnivals, Anyone?

For a more childlike celebration, a carnival is your best bet. You can design the invitations like carnival tickets and prepare game booths for your guests to enjoy.

You can also invite photographers to set up a photo booth to make the most of the carnival spirit.
