Just because you are not a kid anymore doesn't mean you can't throw a birthday party featuring all of your childhood favorites. It is possible to rent different amusements, games, and attractions that will give your grown-up party the fun you remember from your youth. Talk with vendors about the costs to provide your favorite party perks to your guests on your special day.
Some things you need at your birthday bash include these favorites:
Dunk tanks. A dunk tank is not only a hilarious attraction that makes all ages laugh, it is a funny way to cool off on a hot day. These are easily filled with water and create a welcome sight at any backyard party or outdoor event. Ask for volunteers to sit in the dreaded "dunk-seat", and hopefully see them get wet! For more information, contact a company like KO Water Games.
Carnival games. Another fun feature at your childhood-themed party are carnival games. This includes things like knocking over milk bottles, breaking balloons, or tossing rings. Be sure to talk with amusement vendors to ensure they bring plenty of prizes for your guests to win.
Food trucks. A food truck is a clever alternative to a caterer, and depending on where you live, you can have all of your childhood favorites brought to your party. Trucks may offer burgers and fries, ethnic cuisine, or other favorite fare without the fuss and muss of preparing the food yourself.
Bounce houses. A great way to burn off some calories at your party is with a bounce house. These are often seen for small children, but many party vendors offer larger houses that will accommodate adults. These are great fun, and will get your guests moving.
Signature snow-cones. Instead of setting up a bar at your bash, consider a signature snow-cone station. Rent or buy a shaved-ice machine (or two) and a sleeve of snow-cone paper cups, and create sweet concoctions with fruit-flavored syrup and your favorite spirits drizzled on top of the ice. Offer non-alcoholic versions for any children in attendance or friends that don't imbibe.
Host a party that pays homage to your childhood favorites; enjoy playing games, dunking friends, and eating the foods that remind you of your parties when you were a kid. Talk with party rental businesses about the cost to set-up and remove rented supplies, and to ensure you have the exact features you want for your party. Your friends and guests will love your whimsical theme with an adult twist!
