Are you trying to do something special for a birthday but have no space at home? We’ve got an easy answer for you: celebrate in style at a restaurant! Throwing a birthday party at a restaurant is a great way to bring together a big group of people for a celebration. Before making plans, think carefully about what the birthday person would like the most (or simply ask about their preferences) and then choose your favorite. 

If you’re still not convinced about throwing a birthday party at a restaurant, here are a few things that could help you make up your mind. For starters, a restaurant has the perfect ambience and decor for celebrating a special occasion with your nearest and dearest. What’s more, you won’t have to trouble yourself with coming up with a menu and cooking - a restaurant offers an easy and professional option. A restaurant is also a convenient choice if you want to have a bar serving cocktails during the event, whether it’s a cash or open bar this can definitely make your planning a bit easier. And if that were not enough, you also have the option to negotiate for waitstaff, or hire external caterers with servers. If the staff is friendly and helpful, this will only make the whole experience even better. 

And if you think that throwing a birthday party at a restaurant only has its advantages when celebrating with adult family and friends, you couldn’t be more wrong! There are plenty of places that will make your kid’s birthday party an unforgettable experience and ensure that they will have lots of fun with their friends. There are quite a few places where you will be able to find special play areas for kiddos with lots of toys, games, bean bags, and more. Some of them also have outdoor playgrounds where the young ones can go crazy. In some cases, the restaurants offer baby sitters for the youngest ones during special occasions, so that you don’t have to worry about the kids being bored while you’re talking with other adults. And if you’re really concerned about children not having fun during the birthday party, how about having a professional entertainer for the kids? You could invite a mermaid or a pirate who could play games with children, do face painting or even have a small dance party. 

A birthday party at a restaurant sounds like a fantastic idea! To make the special occasion even more unique, we’ve decided to list a few tips and tricks that can help you with the planning and make it a fantastic celebration. 

 

If you’re throwing a birthday party for a child, there are a few things you could do to ensure the whole process goes smoothly:

  • The theme. It comes as no surprise that we want to please our dearest ones on their birthdays. And if it’s your child’s birthday, you will definitely try your best to make sure that the party is a dream come true. Start by sitting down with your kid and choosing the theme for the party. It could be either related to their favourite cartoon, a beloved book or their favorite sports team. A carnival theme is a unique yet universal one - it sets the scene for a wide range of fun activities. You could have face painting, a photo booth or a donut station.  
  • Set the date and send out the invitations. Once you have the theme set, start preparing the invitations. You can either order ready-made ones or buy the supplies to make them yourself (you could even engage your child in the whole creative process). Each invitation should include the party’s start and end time, your phone number, directions to the party location and the party theme. If the children are still at the age when they nap during the day, set the time of the party with that in mind (i.e. either early in the morning or later in the afternoon).
  • Decorations. Banners, bunting, paper decorations, pom poms, scene setters, streamers and more can easily set the celebratory mood. Something that has been a massive trend during the last few years are helium balloons - just imagine how much fun the kids would have if they saw balloons everywhere. A separate table with homemade cupcakes, cookies and extra decorative snacks could be another decoration. It could be an extra unique and sentimental party accent if you put a colourful table cloth on it and hang a photo collage of the birthday person.  
  • Buy party favors. In general party favors are not a must but they are a nice gesture. They’re a thoughtful way of saying thank you to your guests for coming to your party. Not every parent likes goody bags though, and many think they are a source of yet another unnecessary plastic toy or unhealthy food. But party favors don’t need to equal extra trinkets in the house or a huge sugar rush. There are actually a lot of alternatives, so we have a few creative and fun ideas, such as crayons, sidewalk chalk, mini puzzles, bubbles, a jumping rope, to name a few. If you’re really set on putting snacks in the goody bag, what about a granola bar or a homemade cupcake? A great initiative would be to ask your child about the charity they would like to support and instead of spending money on the party favors, donate a small amount of money to the charity of their choice. To not leave out the guests, ask them to sign the card and explain to them what’s going on. You could also send them home with a card or a sticker saying ‘I had fun and made a difference today.’ 
  • Order the cake. Let’s be honest: who doesn’t love a piece of birthday cake (a.k.a. a sprinkled piece of heaven)? In fact, no party is complete until the cake comes out. The birthday cake served at your child’s party depends pretty much on their dream. Firstly, you should ask the birthday person about their preferences regarding the flavour - if they are obsessed with chocolate, go with that. Then, think about the presentation: do you want the cake to match the theme of the party (e.g. if it’s a jungle theme, should it be in the shape of a monkey?), or something plain (e.g. a simple layer cake) with a few candles stuck on the top?  

 

Tips & Tricks for throwing an unforgettable birthday party for your adult friend or family member:

  • Choose the date. It’s simple enough to do, yet many people leave it til the last minute and find themselves without a nice place to throw the party. Ideally, you should throw your party over a weekend. This will allow people to relax and have fun since they won’t need to worry about work the next day. You may want to choose the weekend before or after your actual birthday, but keep one thing in mind: if you’re really set on the weekend celebration, other people may have the same idea, so start looking for the perfect place 2 to 3 months in advance. 
  • Pick the theme. There are so many themes that you could come up with that we don’t know where to start. One cool idea might be a ‘decade party’ - you could decide to dress up according to the decade the birthday person was born in. But if that’s not your cup of tea, how about dressing up as characters from a favorite movie or TV series? You could challenge everyone and see how many “Friends” characters they find iconic.   
  • Escape room. A slightly unconventional birthday celebration could involve an escape room! If you and your friends have a not-so-secret love for puzzles and would like to experience something extra, arrange a visit to an escape room. Most escape-room experiences last one to two hours, so after some intellectual fun, you will have a chance to grab a delicious meal with your guests. 
  • A surprise party. It doesn’t matter what age you are celebrating, a surprise birthday party never gets old. Reserve a large room at the birthday person’s favorite restaurant, where you and your friends could enjoy lots of privacy, and have the time of your lives! Ask the place whether you can come before the party to arrange all of the decorations, name tags and whatever else you need to sort out. Hang a big banner, fill the space with helium balloons and put on a special playlist. Most of the restaurants don’t mind if you bring the birthday cake with you, which allows you to get the best birthday cake there is! Remember one more thing: to avoid any spoilers, let all of the party-goers know that the event is a surprise.
  • A surprise memory video. If you’re surprising your friend or a family member with a birthday dinner, think about something that would make this surprise even more special: for example, ask each guest to film a short message with wishes to the birthday person or a video in which they share the special memories they have with them. Some restaurants have projectors and screens where such a sweet video could be shown on-site, but if the one of your choice doesn’t, we’re sure it’s something that you could arrange without too much of a headache. 

Organizing a birthday party can be a fun and unique experience, no matter the age of the birthday person. Firstly, come up with a good idea and an even better plan. You can take inspiration from one of the ideas mentioned above or go for something completely different - after all, you know the people you are throwing the birthday party for the best. Consider what kind of party you would like to throw: a classic dinner with the nearest and dearest or a unique experience followed by a meal. Think about the theme, the number of guests, the kind of restaurant that will be perfect for the party, decorations, and the star of the party: the cake. Once you’ve found the place that suits all of your requirements and needs, set up a meeting with the manager to discuss the details and finalize everything.  

The most important tip we have for you: when the date comes, have the time of your life!
