Ideas for a November Birthday Party

Updated April 17, 2017

Planning a birthday party for yourself or someone else during the month of November can be challenging as well as fun. You can incorporate holidays such as Thanksgiving into the event, or create a sports-themed party to host the perfect event for the football fan in your life. Whichever you choose, there are plenty of ideas for November birthdays that can make the party you plan special and memorable.

Football Birthday Party

November is in the middle of the NFL football season. If you're planning a party for a big football fan, you can celebrate the day with a sports theme. Buy brown, white and green decorations, plates, cups and streamers to mimic a football field. Encourage guests to wear their favourite team jersey to the party and host a flag football game at the party if the weather permits. Construction paper and poster board in a variety of team colours can also help you create the perfect environment without spending a lot of money.

November Beach Party

Whether you live at the beach or a thousand miles away from one, you can plan an indoor beach party that will help bring summer fun despite cool November weather. Ask guests to dress in Hawaiian shirts and Bermuda shorts to commemorate the birthday boy or girl's special day. Decorate the party space with inflatable beach balls, seashells and fake palm trees. Fill beach pails with candies and chips and use plastic beach shovels to serve food. Play beach games like twister and beach bingo and barbecue on an indoor grill to complete the theme.

Thanksgiving Birthday Party

For kids, a Thanksgiving-themed birthday can provide a great chance to teach children about the history of this holiday while celebrating a birthday. Decorate the party with turkeys and pilgrims, serve turkey and stuffing and give gift bags full of candy corn and other festive candies. Use cornucopia colours such as orange, brown, red and purple to spread the theme throughout the room. Set pumpkins throughout the space and play games like "Pin the Feather on the Turkey" and "Bobbing for Apples."
