Unique Outdoor Birthday Party Ideas

Young or old, putting a unique twist on a birthday party often means blurring the lines between traditional-age preferences.

Birthday parties have been overdone, right? Wrong, actually. There are still plenty of ways in which the guest of honor can enjoy their birthday, whether they’re a toddler or a senior citizen. It’s all about coming at it from a unique point of view.

Bigger isn’t always better

When it comes to the actual ideas that you use for your birthday party, don’t think that you have to look at only those that are elaborate. Sometimes the best ideas for putting that unique twist on a classic backyard birthday party have to do with a simple tweak!

  • Put a twist on a classic idea: In true form of a “twist”, take a great idea and add some flair to it. For example, if you have balloons, why not add glow sticks to them? Fun and inexpensive, this will add mood lighting to your party as the light starts to dim, and it can be fun to be used on the surface of a pool. If your kid’s (or adult’s) party is going to involve water balloons, why not try the same thing with cut up, and crisscrossed sponges? These hold as much water as a balloon can easily be reused for more fun even where normal water balloons would run out quickly. They’re also lightweight and easy to throw.
  • Play around with a modern color scheme: Colours often get overdone and outdated. Does your six years old want pink? Does your retiring partner want navy? If you want to add some flair to that color scheme, take that same color, and find a metallic version. There should be no shortage of options online and it can breathe a fresh breath of air into a tired and overdone color.
  • Bring out the arcade games: Pin the tail on the donkey, a shooting range, ring toss face painting, etc. No matter what your choice is as far as the arcade games that you play, bring them into birthday parties, and see the natural competitive spirit come out in everyone.

Young or old, putting a unique twist on a birthday party often means blurring the lines between traditional-age preferences. A backyard birthday is all about fun and celebration, and these fun ideas are going to be helpful bringing out those wild and crazy vibes in the guest of honor, no matter what the age may be.
