Happy 21st birthday to your bestie! Time flies, doesn’t it? Only yesterday, you were both in diapers learning to walk. Now your friend is all grown up and ready to party! Here are six ideas for how to celebrate her big day.
What could be better than a picnic on a beautiful spring day? Pack lunch and head to your favorite park for some quality time together. If you’re feeling extra festive, bring along a bottle of champagne to toast your friend’s milestone birthday.
Is champagne not your thing? No problem! There are plenty of non-alcoholic options out there that will still make your picnic feel special. Sparkling cider, for instance, is a great way to celebrate without alcohol.
Another idea you could use for a picnic is to make it a potluck! Ask each of your friends to bring their favorite dish, and you’ll have a feast fit for a queen. Just don’t forget the birthday cake. As long as you’re spending time together, it is what matters most.
For a more traditional celebration, take your bestie out for a night on the town. Dinner and drinks at her favorite restaurant, followed by dancing at her favorite club, are sure to be a night she’ll never forget.
For example, Las Vegas nightclubs are world-famous, so if your friend is a Sin City native, that’s the perfect place to celebrate her 21st birthday. If you want to make it extra special, book a limo to pick you up and drop you off at your destination. That way, your friend can feel like a celebrity for the evening!
If you’re not into the club scene, no problem! There are plenty of other options for a night out on the town. You could see a show, go bowling, or play laser tag. The important thing is that you’re spending time together and having fun. Whatever you do, make sure you have a plan for getting home safe at the end of the night.
Is your bestie the type who loves to be pampered? If so, her 21st birthday is the perfect opportunity to treat her like a queen for the day. Start by taking her out for a manicure or pedicure, then head to the spa for massages and facials.
After that, it’s time for some shopping! Take your friend to her favorite stores and help her choose a new outfit to celebrate her birthday in style. Once you’re all dolled up, grab lunch at a nice restaurant and then hit the town for some sightseeing. Top off the day with dinner and dessert back at your place, and your bestie will surely have an unforgettable 21st birthday.
Maybe your bestie is more low-key and prefers to spend her birthday relaxing at home. If that’s the case, there are still plenty of ways to make it special. Start the day with breakfast in bed, then spend some time lounging around watching movies or TV. If your friend is a fan of video games, why not let her indulge for the day? Let her play whatever she wants, and don’t bother her with anything else.
For a friend who loves excitement, an adrenaline-pumping adventure is a perfect way to celebrate her 21st birthday. Skydiving, rock climbing, bungee jumping, or whitewater rafting are all great options that will get her heart racing.
If you’re not into extreme sports, there are still plenty of other options for an adventurous day. You could go hiking or biking in a beautiful location, go for a swim in a natural body of water, or even just explore a new city together.
For a truly memorable 21st birthday, throw your bestie a surprise party. Keep the guest list small and invite her closest friends and family members. Once everyone is there, spring the surprise on her and watch her face light up with joy.
You could hire a band or DJ to entertain your guests if you want to go all out. Ensure you have everything planned out in advance so the surprise isn’t spoiled. You can give your bestie a birthday she’ll never forget with a little effort.
No matter how you choose to celebrate your bestie’s 21st birthday, the important thing is that you make an effort to show her how much she means to you. A little planning and thoughtfulness will go a long way in making her feel special on her big day.
