For most young adults, a 21st birthday marks entry into adulthood. For the first time, they can drink legally. While this is a rite of passage and can be incorporated into the party, it doesn't have to be the main event. Parents and friends who want to give more meaning to a 21st birthday can throw a sentimental celebration worth remembering.

Scrapbook or Photo Album
Gather photos of the birthday girl from birth until her 21st birthday. Arrange the pictures in chronological order in a photo album or scrapbook. Spend time during the birthday party reminiscing over the pictures and telling stories for a heart-felt addition to the day's festivities.
Have the 21-year-old's friends get together and record a CD or make a short video highlighting what makes their friend special. Find friends from different parts of his life, including those he might have lost contact with over the years. Family members can add to the recording, offering sentimental greetings and remembrances. This is particularly nice if the birthday boy is away at college or not near family and friends for another reason.
Personalised Soda/Water/Wine/Beer Bottles
Download a soda bottle label off the internet, and use photo-editing software to put a digital image of the birthday girl onto the label design along with birthday wishes. Print the label to fit bottles of your choice: soda, water, wine or beer. Opt for wine or beer if the birthday girl wants to use her new privilege to drink on her 21st birthday. Glue the label onto the bottles to be served at the party, making sure to save one as a keepsake for the new adult.
