18th Birthday Party - Eighteen is one of those milestone birthdays that should be celebrated with as much ado and pomp as possible. There are many ways to make this birthday memorable including masquerade balls, beach parties or even a live concert featuring a favorite featured band.

21st Birthday Party - If 16 and 18 are common coming of age milestones, 21 marks adulthood in a whole new way. Now legally allowed to imbibe, these birthday parties can really push the limits! Decorate with a variety of empty liquor bottles filled with colored water and backlit by lights for an economical yet colorful option!

30th Birthday Party - If someone is turning 30 it is a safe bet that the 80's played a large role in their earlier years. This is a fun theme idea with tons of cult classic movie ideas to draw from as well as trivia games such as Jeopardy and karaoke with songs from the famous "hair" bands. Wigs, sunglasses, glowing bracelets and piƱata's are a perfect choice!

40th Birthday Party - The classic "over the hill" motif is still very popular for 40th birthday party themes. Load the place up with black balloons, over the hill banners and even fun party favors such as tombstones and tiny walkers!

50th Birthday Party- Is there anything more fun than a 60's theme? For those celebrating their 50th birthday this is the perfect theme and can be complimented with beaded curtains, tie-die, bell-bottoms and flower power. Have fun 60's trivia games, play the old classic movies and hang famous movie posters, particularly Marilyn Monroe!

60th Birthday Party - A hunk a hunka burning birthday party! Have fun with themes for a 60th birthday party, include fun 50's memorabilia, Frank Sinatra movies and perhaps a little Patsy Cline on the radio to round things out. A rousing game of name that tune is sure to be a hit!

70th Birthday Party - You may not want to shake, rattle and roll for this birthday party, but a lovely ballroom theme could hit the spot. These parties are fantastic when you can put together a memory lane motif, pictures, letters and postcards from family and friends over the years is very touching. What better way to celebrate 70 years on the planet?

Fun Adult Birthday Party Games - Adult birthday parties do not have to be boring! While you may not want to party like a rock star, charades, truth or dare, word games and more can be highly entertaining. Of course, if you want to shake it up a little play olive toss, guests toss an olive into one full martini glass and then must drink the contents. The catch is the glasses are in a tower formation and you cannot cause the tower to fall!
