Turning 21 is one of the most exciting days of your life. It is a huge milestone birthday, and one that many of us look forward to from a young age. It is the transition from childhood to adulthood, and a great time to reflect on everything you have achieved so far, and for which you should be proud of yourself. You don’t need to have a huge party or celebration to have fun and make it a party to remember. Sometimes the low-key parties are the most fun by just being a great way to catch up with everyone who is important to you. Here is our guide to celebrating your 21st in style!
Celebrating by Yourself
Why not celebrate by having a self-care day, week or month! Self-care is the act of looking after your physical, mental, and emotional health, and it can help you become a more calm, confident, and content individual who is better able to live in the moment. Approaching your 21st is also accompanied with other big life changes, as for most people, it is nearing the end of your formal education, so you’ll no longer have the structure of life that comes with school and university. Taking a self-care day of doing things that are meaningful and enjoyable to you can give you the space to create plans for the future and reflect on your journey so far. Why not buy yourself some flowers and a 21st birthday card as one of your first acts of self-care?
Celebrating with Family
If your family is close by, why not celebrate with them and try out the new restaurant in town that everyone is raving about? Spending time with your family on your birthday is a great way to reflect on your childhood, and all the funny stories that family members have of you growing up. It will also mean a lot to them – 21 isn’t just a big birthday for you, your family will be equally as proud and excited.
What’s left undone for the party? Of course, taking care of decorations. There are many ways to decorate for a person’s 21st birthday. One option is to choose decorations that reflect the individual’s interests and personality. For example, if the guest of honor loves fashion, the décor could be inspired by their favorite designer or style icon. Another option is to go with a more general theme, such as “black and white” or “glitz and glam.” You can even consider having some personalized inflatables to add a special touch to your day. Eye-catching custom inflatables come in all possible shapes, forms and sizes and can be designed to match your interest. No matter what decoration you choose, be sure to have the birthday girl or boy happy, as that’s the main goal of the day.
Celebrating with Friends
Celebrating with friends can be a challenge due to everyone having different schedules, so try to organize this a month or two in advance if possible, to ensure maximum attendance. Why not plan a weekend away or night out, and buy yourself a gorgeous dress that you will help you feel confident. After all – you only turn 21 once! If partying all night long isn’t for you – that’s totally fine. Organize some sober activities such as travelling for the weekend with close friends, getting your nails done, a shopping trip or even an escape room. And don’t feel pressured to do something you won’t enjoy, it’s your birthday!
