Whether you are planning big birthday celebrations or a special anniversary, the party ideas seem to dwindle when you are an adult.

It has never been a better time to go big with the party celebrations and splash some cash on making those memories that will last a lifetime.
The sky is the limit when it comes to party planning. You can choose to do it yourself with a few friends and plan the ultimate get-together, or hand it over to the professionals who will take care of all the little details so you can just enjoy the occasion. Whichever option you choose, it does not have to be stressful. So what are you waiting for? If you are stuck for ideas, check out some of these epic party options that cater to all guests, whether they are up for a rave or want a chilled experience.
1. Organize a spa weekend
Get everyone together for the ultimate pampering experience at a spa hotel. This is the perfect opportunity to kick back and relax with your nearest and dearest, all while not lifting a finger all weekend. There are tons of hotels to choose from, including spa breaks overseas – this option caters to your every need, including dinner, drinks, and treatments. Plus, many hotels are situated in beautiful locations so you can admire the scenery on your stay. Spa weekends are a great way to chill out with your family and friends, and it is not just an option for the girls either!
2. Host a movie screening
Do you have a favorite film that all your friends love to watch too? Why not hire out a movie theatre and relive the memories with everyone. It is a unique party option and some locations give you the option of food and drinks to make it into the ultimate movie night. The size of a movie complex also gives you the opportunity of inviting tons of family and friends to the occasion.
3. Hire a yacht
Nothing says luxury party night like hiring a yacht for your friends and family celebrations. For example, if you plan a yacht party in Marina del Rey with Fantasea yachts, everything is catered to your needs, including entertainment options. This fantastic party option is a unique and memorable experience for everyone. It is the perfect opportunity to get dressed up or arrange a themed party for all types of occasions. If you need customized options, then party planners will handle everything for you for the best experience. If you are looking for an unforgettable celebration idea, this is a hard one to beat!
4. Go on vacation
With everything that has been going on lately, there is no better time to take a break. A holiday makes the ideal celebration option, and you can organize everything for a chilled experience or a party island event. The beauty of going on a short break with everyone is that the fun never ends, and you can also take some time to relax. Pick a destination accessible to everyone and decide whether you want to stay local or travel abroad for some party fun. The choice is endless and there is something for all types of interests. Plus, you can take on the party planning with friends to organize the ultimate break that everyone will love.
5. Host a ball
Want to take the opportunity to dress up in your best and dance the night away! Well, why not opt for a ball theme to satisfy your luxe tastes. Balls are a glam way to celebrate any type of event and are ideal for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and graduation. Go full-on with dreamy décor and a live band. Perhaps hire a casino area and have a waited table service for dinner guests. This party style is a great way to add some pizazz to your evening and make it a truly memorable experience tailored to your personality.
6. Host a festival
With the festival season a washout last year, this summer could provide the perfect opportunity to host your own. Festivals are a fantastic way to celebrate any occasion, and you could hold your private event in tons of locations, including woodland and countryside. This type of event is a great chance to add a theme to the occasion and encourage fancy dress. Festivals are great for adding live entertainment, including bands and DJs. You could also host different music tents depending on the size you want to take the occasion. Do not forget the food trucks and bar options too, to ensure your guests are fed and watered throughout the festival.
7. Beach party
With summer approaching, everyone loves being beside the sea. So why not mix this love of the beach with your party idea and host an epic beach soiree. Check out options for private beaches or islands for amazing event locations. These will be one of the more expensive party ideas, but they make some incredible memories. Many hotels across the globe have private beach access that allows parties to check out the options for an accessible and legal occasion. Just rocking up on a beach and throwing on some party tunes might get you in a spot of bother. So be sure to check the local regulations before hosting an ad hoc party on your local beach.
8. Camp out
While camping might not be everyone’s cup of tea, this type of party celebration is unlike your typical campout. Much like hiring land to host your own festival, you can do the same for a big overnight camping break with your friends and family. Pitch up some tents or hire luxury glamping accommodation to set you up for the night, light a fire and play some music and you have got yourself a night under the stars with your favorite people. This option is, of course, better in the summer, so you do not have to worry too much about rainy weather ruining the event. Why not add this option with a day festival-style party for handy accommodation after the party ends.
9. Adventure day
Does your group of friends love an adventure? Well, if they do, why not plan a day out with this as the theme. Get into nature and tackle some hiking or biking trails. Or perhaps organize some activities such as sailing, orienteering, and climbing. Top the day off with a campout or dinner under the stars. If your nearest and dearest love the outdoors but do not fancy getting dirty, why not take a steady bike ride and host a big picnic at the end with plenty of treats as a reward.
10. Throw a kidult party
Adults are just big kids, right! So why not host the best kidult party of the year. Think back to what you loved as a child. Hire a bouncy house (suitable for adults!), organize a buffet, hire an entertainer and eat as much cake and treats as you can possibly handle. Back in your youth, kid’s parties were the best experiences and something we often remember fondly, so why not recreate it. Some people might need a little convincing, but they are sure to come around once they see all those old-school favorites.
11. Hire an island
If you are looking to go big for your next event, hire an entire island for the celebrations. There are lots of small private islands available to rent for a host of occasions, and many have suitable accommodation so you can make a getaway out of it too. Hiring a private island is more expensive than your typical party options, but it is not short of incredible memories to be made. This option is excellent for getting extended families together. Plus, it is ideal for corporate events.
12. Murder Mystery night
This party theme is one of the most popular options for many types of events. Its immersive and exhilarating ‘who did it’ experience has everyone at the edge of their metaphorical seats, and you can choose from a host of options to set the scene. Top choices include recreating a police crime scene, a night train scenario, and a theater experience. There are many external companies that provide murder mystery parties, so you do not have to worry about anything apart from enjoying yourself. These options are surprisingly realistic, with venues and actors all set up for the event. Why not add to the occasion by dressing up as the characters and fully embracing the theme. It certainly makes for some fun accusations and exciting storylines.
These are just a few of the epic party ideas to consider for your next event. There are also the classics such as 80s disco, masquerade ball, and Vegas casino night to get you inspired. So, why not start planning a big get-together, there has never been a better time to share the fun with your friends and family.
