What about arranging something in a style of kid’s birthday party- without making it “childish”?

Entertainment! Entertainment! Entertainment!
You know that entertainment is the key word to any party is entertainment. To make sure that your pals never feel a moment of boredom in your party, think of arranging some childhood party games, in a bit adult way, of course. For example, what about playing passing the parcel, but instead of stuffing candies inside, what about getting some jelly shots, or write different dares and slip them inside? Again, musical bumps are a great way to spend time, but instead of sitting on the floor, try sitting on each other’s laps? Even dance competitions and karaoke are great, where the silliest song or dance will be hailed as winners. Or plain and simple, go for blind man’s bluff, with no twists added. Do some net searching and you are sure to come up with many fabulous ideas!
ou can do everything in the comfort of your own home. At home, you don’t have to worry about the time limit and you can do pretty much whatever you want. However, you will have to clean, cook and entertain the guests, so be prepared to be exhausted! Parks are great for kids birthday parties as well, but you need to keep the weather in mind. Another option is to rent an in-door venue. Some places will only provide space while you have to bring your own food and entertainment. But you won’t have to worry about cleaning before and after. Some kids birthday party venues are all-inclusive meaning they will provide space, food and entertainment.
