Fun Ideas For An All-Adult Party!

Fun Ideas For An All-Adult Party!

If you’re going to be having a party, then you may want to make sure that you’re getting the most out of it. The most important thing is that everyone is going to be able to enjoy themselves, and that’s why you’ve got to think long and hard about some ideas to make your party great. In this article, we’re going to be taking a look at what some of these ideas are, so keep reading if you would like to find out more.

Go Do Something Childish

The first thing that we are going to suggest is that you go and do something childish. It’s hard being an adult, and it’s exhausting. It’s for this reason that sometimes we just want to take a step back and do something fun, maybe even a little bit childish. For example, you could all dress up as characters from a film or TV show and have a fancy dress party. Or, you could head out and go bowling, go to a laser quest center, or whatever else you think you might enjoy. The point is for it to be as fun as possible, so something that you used to enjoy when you were a child might be a good idea. Think about the things that you used to love to do, and then choose one for your party.

Hire A Bar

Another thing that we are going to suggest is that you hire a bar. Not everyone drinks alcohol, it’s true, but for those who do, this is going to make the party that little bit better. A company like Party Pony Trailers LLC may be able to help you out here as they have mobile bars! This means that if you want the party to be at your home, but you also want a bar, then something like this is the perfect solution! 

Or, you could simply just have alcohol on the table and allow everyone to mix their own drinks. At least you can be sure they’re going to like what they make for themselves!

Game Night

Finally, have you thought about having a game night? Everyone can get involved, and it can be a super fun idea. Choose a bunch of different games that everyone can play together, and then let the fun begin. Ensure that all the games you’ve got are suitable for the amount of players that you are going to have so that nobody ends up left out. Get some snacks, a few drinks, and this could be the perfect night in for you and your friends. It might not be the same as having an actual party, but it’s just as fun for a small gathering!

We hope that you have found this article helpful and now know some of the fun ideas that we’ve got for an all-adult party. These ideas don’t make up an extensive list, so there are plenty more things that you can do if you would like to. Hopefully, you have a great time, and so does everyone else involved.

Serves 4

Easy

Throwing a vegan dinner party in the autumn or winter months? Bake a pumpkin with a gorgeous stuffing of rice, fennel, apple, pomegranate seeds and pecans

Ingredients

 

  • 1 medium-sized pumpkin or round squash (about 1kg)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 100g wild rice
  • 1 large fennel bulb
  • 1 Bramley apple
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced

 

 

  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 30g pecans, toasted and roughly chopped
  • 1 large pack parsley, roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • pomegranate seeds, to serve

Method

1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Cut the top off the pumpkin or squash and use a metal spoon to scoop out the seeds. Get rid of any pithy bits but keep the seeds for another time (see our pumpkin seed recipe ideas). Put the pumpkin on a baking tray, rub with 2 tbsp of the oil inside and out, and season well. Roast in the centre of the oven for 45 mins or until tender, with the ‘lid’ on the side.

2. Meanwhile, rinse the wild rice well and cook following pack instructions, then spread out on a baking tray to cool. Thinly slice the fennel bulb and apple, then squeeze over ½ the lemon juice to stop them discolouring.

3. Heat the remaining 2 tbsp oil in a frying pan. Fry the fennel seeds and chilli flakes, then, once the seeds begin to pop, stir in ½ the garlic and the fennel. Cook for 5 mins until softened, then mix through the apple, pecans and lemon zest. Remove from the heat. Add the mixture to the the cooked rice, then stir in the chopped parsley and taste for seasoning.

4. Pack the mixture into the cooked pumpkin and return to the oven for 10-15 mins until everything is piping hot. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining lemon juice with the tahini, the rest of the garlic and enough water to make a dressing. Serve the pumpkin in the middle of the table, topped with pomegranate seeds and the dressing.

DIY CONFETTI-STUFFED TURKEY

DIY CONFETTI-STUFFED TURKEY

You guys have to thank for this onslaught of Thanksgiving DIYs. It’s her favorite holiday, and in an effort to make sure she never leave me, I’m continuing to embrace the holiday, and even got her in on the act! (Ok! I’ll admit it. I’m really having fun with these Thanksgiving DIYs!) I may not be the biggest fan of Thanksgiving dinner (I KNOW! I’m Un-American. Judge away.), but I can certainly still stuff a turkey like it’s nobody’s business. Except my turkey? It’s stuffed with CONFETTI! Would this not be the BEST centerpiece for a Turkey Day kid’s table!? I even made some turkey leg confetti poppers to go with. Because that’s how I roll.

 

 

They’re kind of like turkey leg maracas! Ha! Until you tear ’em open and throw confetti everywhere. You’re welcome.

DIY Turkey Leg Confetti Poppers

Now, let’s stuff a Turkey… Studio DIY style.

DIY Confetti Stuffed Turkey

 

White Lunch Bag
White Treat Bags (Two for a full turkey, or one for each confetti popper.)
Confetti (I cut my neon confetti from tissue paper, and sprinkled in some gold foil confetti too!)
Tissue Paper
Scissors
Hot Glue and/or Glue Dots

 

I was inspired by this AMAZING giant paper bag turkey for my mini version. To start, open up one lunch bag and then put a second lunch bag inside of it and open that too (giving you two layers). You’ll want to squash down the corners of the bag, and can do so by putting one hand inside the bag and pressing the other (on the outside) against it. Then, fill your bag up with confetti! (LOTS of confetti.)

This part can be a little tricky, but you can do it! Roll under the opening of your stuffed lunch bag and carefully fold in the bottom-sides, forming an angle on each side of the rolled edge. Now, set that aside while you work on your turkey legs. For those, use the same method to squash down both corners of each treat bag.

Fill ’em up with confetti! Then twist the bottom portion closed.

Take a 2-3″ strip tissue paper and fringe one side of it. Adhere one end to the twisted part of your turkey leg, than wrap it round and round before finally securing it with another glue dot.

Tada! Your final step to complete your funky turkey is to hot glue (or glue dot!) the sides together. Each leg should fit right along the angled edge of your stuffed lunch bag.

BAM! That turkey is stuffed and ready to go! Set it up in the center of the kids table and wait for the ooohs and aahhhs!

If you make some extra turkey legs, set them at each place setting for even more awesome fun! Then let your guests go bananas tearing them open and raining confetti everywhere. Perhaps reserve this for after dinner, unless you enjoy your real stuffing with a side of confetti too.

This will be the first year that Jeff and I won’t be spending Thanksgiving with one of our families. I’m not sure I have the guts to actually make a real turkey (I usually am responsible for dessert. Surprised?), so this may be the only turkey Jeff gets this year. Hmm… I wonder if he’ll still marry me? =)
