Ding-dong! It is that part of the year when, being your birthday, you get to gather with people you love and celebrate your special day.
As soon as the excitement starts to kick in, there are also questions that start to enter into your thought process.
What food should I prepare?
Theme party – yay or nay?
Below, we will share some birthday ideas with you that will be easy, inexpensive, and will make you and your friends feel as special as you are.
Choose a theme
You might want to do a theme meet up with your friends. This is something you should talk about with them and let me know about them.
You can search for some great ideas online. Whatever theme you choose, be aware that you will end up buying all the decorations, games, and treats that go with that theme.
If you can steer to something a little more flexible, you can save money and prepare fun, but still on-budget birthday party.
This is a theme that opens the door to your creativity. Some of the most popular party themes for adults include:
- Pop Art
- Game of Thrones etc.
Most of the themes you choose will be a lot about the color.
You can have a birthday table set up with a matching table covering, or sometimes, it is better to go dark or bright color so the theme and dressed up people can really pop.
Whatever theme you choose – keep in mind that balloons make everything so much more classy.
Now, role-playing games are usually played with groups of up to about five or maybe six people. If there is more people and you still want to play a role game, it would be better for the teams to split.
Depending on how much you want to put your focus on the game itself, you may want to look at various options.
For example, if you want your guests to stay at the dinner table – you can try out some of the lighter mystery LARPS.
If you imagined your party as a certain mix of dinner party and game, then maybe try out Fiasco.
It can be played mostly through social interaction so your guests will talk to each other a lot and socialize. On the plus side though, it does have a structure and takes up some table space.
And a board game with served dinner could also be really good for a short dungeon and dragons (or others that have premade scenarios).

You may want to have a small cake for the birthday to share with family after dinner, but consider cupcakes for the party. They are much easier to make and can be done in a variety of different tastes & ingredients.
Unlike a cake, you can have vegan muffins, non-lactose muffins, chocolaty, fruity, ice-frosting… whatever you wish for – and your guests can choose what suits them best.
Parties are all about fun. You do not have to spend a lot of money just use your imagination and have fun!
