Turning 21 is a rite of passage for every young adult, and this milestone birthday is worthy of a celebration. Usually associated with being able to legally drink, the 21st birthday celebration often takes place at a restaurant or bar, where the celebrant can order her first alcoholic drink. Turn this celebration into a wildly funny time by incorporating some themes and activities into the event.

21 Challenges

If you're planning a night of bar hopping for a friend's 21st birthday, you can turn the event into an all-out scavenger hunt. Create a list of 21 items or activities that the birthday guy must find or complete. For example, he might have to take a picture with the bartender who serves him his first drink, convince a woman to buy him a drink or sing a karaoke song. Keep the activities clean and safe; don't require him to take any shots or drink a certain number of drinks on his big night.

21 Years of You

Let the 21-year-old reflect on his previous 20 years and get in a little good-natured humiliation at the same time. Dig up pictures of the birthday gal over the years; the goofier the pictures, the better. Put them together in a scrapbook titled "21 Years of You." Give this scrapbook to her on her birthday. She will enjoy reflecting on the previous 20 years, even if she has to share some rather embarrassing pictures in the meantime.

Themed Pub Crawl

Find an area in your town that has a number of watering holes within walking distance. Set up a themed pub crawl to celebrate the 21st birthday. Think of a theme that suits the birthday celebrant. If he loves his college's team, ask everyone to wear the school colours. Or, you can encourage guests to dress up as the birthday guy, which will lead to some humorous pictures. Hop from bar to bar to say happy 21st.

Surprise Party

A surprise party works well for any birthday, and with some age-related items, it can be suitable for a 21st birthday. Whether you host the event at a restaurant, bar or your own home, create a special cocktail just for the birthday gal. For example, you can create the "Megan Martini" featuring her favourite flavours or made in her favourite colour. Play her favourite music, and decorate the space in blown-up pictures of her throughout the years.
