Your 21st should be a day to remember. It’s not every day you fully enter adulthood, dive properly into your twenties, and get the chance to throw a huge party that’s all about celebrating you. If you want your 21st to be something truly special, you’ll need the right theme, the right venue, and, most importantly, the right friends surrounding you. Here are just a few best-birthday-ever ideas to inspire you.





Throw a swanky cocktail party. You only turn 21st once, so why not make it a full-on fancy event? You can book out one of the most beautiful function rooms adelaide in the city, set your guests a strictly-classy dress code, and serve up a selection of delicious, creative cocktails. Don’t forget plenty of silver platters packed with delectable appetizers and a full guest list of all of your favourite people and you’re guaranteed a truly memorable evening, without sacrificing elegance and sophistication.

Go wild. Not everyone wants a party for their 21st – others may prefer getting out into nature and experiencing the earth at its most beautiful with a few special friends. Pack up your camping gear and find a gorgeous spot surrounded by natural beauty to camp out for your birthday weekend. Make sure you pack for all of the elements so your special day doesn’t get spoiled by unexpected weather, and seek out some walker-friendly hiking trails so you can explore the area with your friends. Bring plenty of tasty food to cook over a fire and you’ve got the recipe for an ideal nature-lovers birthday weekend.

Go on an epic birthday shopping spree. You’re finally a proper adult now, so you’re going to need a new wardrobe, right? Sounds like a good enough excuse for a major shopping session. Hit the mall with your favourite shopping buddies (the ones who’ll always tell you what looks awful), and save up for a few months ahead of time so you have a decent budget for the day. Don’t forget to kick it off with a huge, tasty brunch so you have energy to hit the mall hard.

Organise a nostalgic childhood party. If you’re not quite ready to enter the world of the grownups yet, you could always have a birthday party that celebrates all the things you loved best about your childhood. You’ll need a bouncy castle, all of those awesome kiddie party games, and a costume theme that makes everyone feel like they’re really at a classic kid’s birthday party

Throw a sunshine beach party. For those lucky enough to be summer babies, there’s no better way to spend a birthday than chilling in the sun with your best friends. Add some cake, beach balls for games, plenty of refreshing drinks, and an epic sunset view into the mix, and you’ve got the chilled out 21st of your dreams.

Hit some wine farms. It may not be your 18th, but you can still celebrate with a few legal drinks on your 21st! Keep it classy by bringing your friends to one of your local wine region’s stunning wine farms. Pick one with a great restaurant so you can enjoy a tasty lunch while you savour some of our country’s famously amazing wine, and then explore the area for some much-needed relaxation time.
