One of the things that friends and family can do for someone celebrating a birthday is to work on some great things to make the birthday memorable. In order for a birthday to be special there needs to be more than a cake and some birthday cards. Put some thought into a birthday celebration and create a day your loved one will not forget.

Unique Location

A birthday party held at someone's house can be adequate, but a great birthday idea is to move the party someplace unique. Some unique places to have a birthday celebration are an amusement park, a bowling alley, a miniature golf course, a go-kart facility, a laser tag centre or a professional sporting event. Choose a location based on the preferences of the guest of honour, but look for something not too obvious. For example, if the guest of honour is a big sports fan then having the celebration at a sporting event would be good, but a go-kart track may be unique and fun. When considering the party location, call ahead to see what kind of birthday packages are offered to make the event more memorable.

Party Theme

A unique birthday party theme can be a great birthday idea. Create a theme that parallels something associated with the guest of honour, and get as involved in the theme as you can. If the guest of honour enjoys working long hours at the office, then create an office theme for his birthday party. Use a pirate theme if the guest of honour likes pirate movies, or a theme based on other kinds of movies the birthday person enjoys. Create decorations that match the theme, and ask the guests to show up in costume to make the theme more authentic.


At a birthday party you may expect to see a DJ, play some party games and enjoy refreshments. For a great party hire some real entertainment. Ideas include a hypnotist, a comedian, a ventriloquist, a magician or a celebrity impersonator. One way of creating a truly memorable birthday party is to hire a group of celebrity impersonators based on people the guest of honour would like to meet. When the impersonators show up, act like they are just there to enjoy the party and wait until the guest of honour starts asking questions before revealing the secret.
