Ideas for a memorable birthday celebration
From brothers to mothers, best friends to partners, most of us have a special person in our lives who deserves to be treated when their birthday rolls around – and what better way to say thank you to them for being in your life than with a lavish soirée and some opulent gifts to really mark the occasion?
A personalised celebration that incorporates all the things that make them smile is a sure-fire way to make it a birthday to remember – from a beautiful venue to a unique gift, and everything in between. There are plenty of ways you can make this one special, so why not go all out?
Here are the four key considerations for planning a birthday celebration that really has that ‘wow’ factor.
Every birthday party worth attending requires a show-stopping centre-piece, and a beautiful cake is certain to impress. Why not order a bespoke bake that incorporates their favourite flavours and themes – or, for a more elegant offering, have a professionally baker ice and decorate it with beautifully crafted flowers?
If you’re unable to attend the birthday party yourself and are organising it from a distance, then an online cake could be the perfect solution. You can have a meaningful message on it to let them know just how special they are to you – and to wish them a memorable day.
When it comes to the party itself, your first consideration should be the venue. A luxury hotel or elegant cocktail bar could provide the perfect setting for a celebratory gathering – and a sky bar with sweeping views over the city would be even better.
For refreshments, opt for something simple yet chic such as champagne and canapés – and ensure that the venue can provide enough staff to ensure that the evening goes without a hitch. Have them decorate the space you’ll be using with carefully colour-coordinated balloons and accessories – but remember the mantra of ‘less is more’ – especially when trying to create that luxury feel.
For the ultimate birthday surprise, treat them to a special gift that will really take their breath away. A designer watch or expensive piece of jewellery are both certain to impress, while a lavish holiday is certain to put a smile on their face.
If you’re looking to give them something that bit more personal, there are plenty of unique gifts online that will fit the bill. A personalised number plate is a great and thoughtful present they can keep forever, while an experience gift – such as a hot air balloon ride or a racing car driving experience will give them an opportunity to create new and exciting memories that will last a lifetime.
What’s a birthday celebration without flowers? A beautiful bouquet can make for a lovely surprise, and any good florist will be happy to make you one up based around the birthday boy or girl’s favourite blooms. If they like to cook, you can add a unique twist to proceedings by surprising them with a bouquet of their favourite herbs, instead, or send them a handmade greeting or letter.
It’s all about tapping into what they really like, and showing that you’ve given them some thought.
Whoever that special someone is, a birthday is the perfect opportunity to let them know you care. So thank them for the positive influence they have on your life by planning a special celebration they’ll truly love.
