Your 21st birthday is a super-special occasion. It only comes once, so it’s essential that you make sure it’s a magical day that you’ll remember fondly for the rest of your life. To make that happen, you’ll probably need to put in some serious planning. If you’re feeling a little stumped on how to tackle the big day so that it’s as special as possible and need some extra inspiration, here are just a few ideas of how you can have the best day ever and ring in the rest of your 20s in style.





Go for an all-out chocolate and wine fest in the Hunter Valley.

If you’re the type of girl who can’t think of much better than spending your birthday consuming your bodyweight in delicious, posh chocolate and some of Australia’s best wines, then we have the ideal birthday day out for you. Get your best girlfriends together, check out bus hire sydney prices, make sure everyone chips in for their part and then head out on an epic adventure of the Hunter Valley visiting all of the region’s famous wine farms and best food spots along the way. You’ll enjoy gorgeous views, delicious food, and an all-day party with your favourite people. What could be better?

 

Organise the ultimate pamper party.

Some of us would prefer to spend the day feeling completely relaxed and at ease on our birthday rather than going through the trouble of planning a proper party. If that sounds more up your alley, you could organise a proper day of relaxation, pampering and luxurious spa treatments for yourself and a few of your closest friends. There are plenty of great spas out there to choose from - but read some online reviews and look around for discount vouchers to find the best option to suit your birthday budget. Fill the day up with pampering treatments so you’ll end your 21st feeling tranquil, refreshed, and ready for a new year.

 

     Come up with a fun theme.

If you’re planning a big party for your 21st, consider putting a real theme in place to set it apart from your average party. A fun idea could be theming the party around the year you were born, so everyone has to arrive dressed in clothes from that year and the music is chosen from the popular tunes of that time. If you have a particular passion or hobby, choose a theme based on that. Remember, it’s your special day, so your theme should reflect the things you love and what makes you truly happy. Anything goes!

 

     Go full fancy with black tie.

If you’ve got the budget for it, you could throw a posh black tie formal event for your 21st to really make a statement about the occasion. That includes sending out proper invitations (not just Facebook messages), and making it clear that you expect your guests to arrive dolled up in tuxedos and formal dresses. Get your hair and makeup done specially for the night and find an upscale catering company to serve up delicious treats throughout the evening. You may need to call the parents in for a little extra cash to fund this kind of 21st party, but it could be worth the haggling if you really want an extra-special, celebrity-style birthday night.
