21st Birthday

Are you turning 21 soon? If so, then congratulations! 21 is a big year! It’s the year that you become an adult in the eyes of the law, this is a major milestone in your life and there are plenty of reasons to celebrate. Also, the year that you can finally drink alcohol legally.

There are many other ways to celebrate your 21st birthday, and in this blog post, we will discuss 10 of them. Whether you’re planning a party, big bash or just going out with friends, or even want to know what to do when your friends turn 21, read on for some great ideas!

1. Throw a boozy brunch

Everyone enjoys a nice breakfast, especially one that includes booze. As an alternative to a nighttime celebration, invite your buddies over for a drunken breakfast. Add some homemade alternatives, like an omelet bar or an oatmeal bar, to round out your menu.

Join an online mixology class with your friends to learn how to make your own delicious brunch cocktails for some extra fun. Everyone can contribute and get the birthday person something valuable to put on their bar cart.

2. Go camping

If you have the time and money, camping is a great way to spend a night or maybe a whole weekend with your friends. During the day, go hiking, and at night, cook outside while enjoying a drink. You could always hire a camper van with an oven to bake a cake if you have the money. If not, bring a sheet cake that can be stored on a shelf for this adventurous 21st birthday party concept.

No matter where you reside, there are undoubtedly a number of places around that are worth a road trip, including national parks, beaches, old towns, and nearby cities.

4. Book a pamper day

On your special day, treat yourself by planning a trip to the spa. Although getting a pampering package including a facial, massage, and manicure is always a fantastic idea, feel free to pick and choose the services you prefer most. In either case, a spa day will leave you feeling your best.
