This is not a place for kids ...
This is not a place for kids, but rather a gathering where the adults can kick back and have fun. You can hold this at your home or at a special venue, but just be sure that it’s something cool and away from the kids for the night. This is a great time to focus on some of their favorite things such as color or pattern. If she loves pink or zebra print then use that for everything from the adult birthday invitations to the decorations. If he is a lover of golf then by all means incorporate that into all of the elements and planning.
Keep it light and fun and incorporate something very adult like a signature cocktail. If they love strawberry margaritas then that’s the drink of the night that you offer up, in addition to something simple like beer and wine. If they happen to love Italian food, then put together a pasta bar and keep the sides simple and nice complements to the main feature.
This is all about partying and having a great time, getting away from the daily stress and work and the kids for one night. Have some great music and dancing if the venue and the occasion calls for it. This can be such a great escape, not only for the guest of honor but for the guests as well. You are bound to have as much fun planning this as you do the night of if you put some special emphasis on the tastes of the guest of honor. Make this carefree and fit for a night of partying and some fun adult time!
