Even though your birthday falls in winter in other parts of the world, if you live in Australia, being born in December or January means that you can have a hell of a summer birthday party. These people are always super lucky as you have a plethora of options to choose from; you can opt for an inside or an outside party, choose among various venues, and practically have any theme that you want (either a Xmas one or a summer one – it’s up to you). So, if you are one of these lucky people and you happen to live in Australia, this is how you can celebrate your upcoming birthday. Take a look at these 5 summer birthday party ideas, grab a pen and paper (or simply bookmark this page) and start with the preparations!
1. The classic pool party
The most common summer parties are thrown next to a pool, so why would your birthday party be any different? Even though it’s very common, it’s still not a cliché, as all of us can’t wait to be invited to a pool party, and this is something that you can give to the friends you love and still celebrate your life. In order to do this, you don’t have to own a pool at your house. Sydney and Melbourne, for example, have a plethora of indoor and outdoor pool parties, and some of them even offer the option of celebrating your birthday there. If you opt for an outdoor pool party, make sure that everyone has sunscreen and a gift, and you can take care of the food and drinks.
2. A backyard party
If you happen to be living in a house and have a wonderful green backyard, you can take your party there. There’s not a better venue for a birthday than your beautiful yard, and you should definitely use this perk – people who live in building never have this chance, so you might as well use it. Apart from the decoration that you will choose (and you should make sure that your backyard is nicely decorated), take care of the food and drinks. The best options would be summery drinks, and you can save time by ordering certain drinks such as gin online, and then make great cocktails that are perfect for summertime. As far as food is concerned, opt for a barbeque if there’s an option, or go with good old finger food.
3. Party in the woods
This is another extremely unique idea. First of all, it’s very important that you have a specific place in mind where you would want to have your birthday celebration. It could be your own cottage in the woods if you own one, or you can simply rent one for a day. Make sure that all the attendees have a detailed map of how to get there, and take care of decorations. The best idea would be to make a wooden floor where you would have your dance floor, buffet and bar. This might be a bit more expensive, but it’s definitely something that’s extremely original and interesting. Your party will definitely be one of the most memorable ones of the year.
- Let’s go to the beach
As Nicki Minaj would say “Let’s go to the beach, beach, let’s go get away”, and this is exactly what you should do if you have the option to. Australia has magnificent beaches, so choosing a secluded and empty one might be a great idea. Again, this means that all of your friends need to have a detailed map in order to get there safely and not get lost. You can also choose a plethora of beach activities, and if you and your friends are surfers, you can also surf your birthday away with food and drinks waiting on the beach. Disclaimer: Don’t drink and surf! Make sure to surf first for a bit and then drink and eat the night away!
5. An indoors decorated summer party
However, you can always go back to basics, and have your party somewhere indoors. This could either be your house or a venue that you booked beforehand, but if you want to make your birthday quite summery, make sure that you don’t save on the decorations. You can have a California-style birthday party indoors as well, with so many accessories and decorations that will make the party simply amazing.
Lucky you if you get to have a summer birthday party! The options are numerous, you just need to get a bit creative and actually want to throw the party of the decade. Good luck and happy birthday!
