5 Best Birthday Party Themes

We’re of the opinion that if there are no cocktails, there’s no party.

Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean your birthday parties have to be less fun. All you need for a memorable party is a few go-to cocktail recipes, all the ingredients you need at your fingertips, and a little cocktail party theme inspiration. With so many possibilities, we’ve rounded up our top five themed cocktail party ideas to get you on your way

Mexican Fiesta party

If you’re dreaming of the resorts of Cabo, or the sunsets of Cancun, take a figurative trip with a Mexican Fiesta themed party. A Mexican themed party is all about bright colours, margaritas, tacos, salsa dancing, and more margaritas. In case you hadn’t guessed, we think you just can’t beat sipping on a crisp, cold margarita while enjoying all that a Mexican party has to offer.

For something a little more unexpected than tacos and tortillas, serve your amigos Baja shrimp (they’ll always be prawns to us) and homemade churros. Enjoy, compadres!

Drinks By The Pool party

There’s something about sitting near a body of water that makes cocktails taste better. Whether you’re lounging poolside, or dreaming of summer, the Beachcomber is the ultimate warm-weather drink.

Not for the faint hearted, the tropical cocktail blends white rum, triple sec and cherry liqueur with premium lime juice. Topped with a delicious blood orange garnish, Beachcombers are perfect for poolside lounging and with an easy-to-follow recipe card, pre-measured ingredients, and a spirit measure to make mixing easy, they will certainly impress.

Taking its cues from all things summer — citrusy, refreshing, and fun — a lemon drop martini on a hot summer day is what summer sipping is all about! With a martini in one hand and a grilled prawn in the other, your pool party just became full of possibility.

Whatever craft cocktail tickles your tastebuds, simply roll your bar cart out to your poolside perch and find salvation via a pool-drink combo.

Decadent Great Gatsby party

If you love all things jazz, flappers, gangsters and Prohibition — then you’ll want to host your own lavish, Gatsby-inspired soiree. Many of the era’s popular tipples are still in demand today, like the bubbly French 75, Daquiri and the ever-popular Martini.

Kick-off the evening with an effortlessly sophisticated French 75. Deliciously simple and beautiful to behold, this gin-based cocktail, topped with French bubbles and a Maraschino cherry garnish is an impressive celebration cocktail. We’ve made the French 75 quick to prepare and elegant to serve, so you can escape the kitchen and enjoy your celebration.

For the rum lovers, you can’t go past a Daquiri. This Jazz Age bevvy is a classic blend of white rum, lime and Gomme syrup giving you that delicious balance of citrus and sweet.

Pull out the chaise lounge, sip on a lemon drop martini, hit play on a jazz and electro-swing playlist, close your eyes, and you could almost believe you were in the roaring 20s.

Hamptons Garden Party

New York’s Hamptons evokes visions of hedonistic celebrities and unapologetic flaunting of wealth. Holiday-makers celebrate the region’s luxuriant gardens, coastal vistas, and striking sunsets with as much gusto as they partake in the social scene.

To transport your guests into the home of summertime chic, create a Hamptons style garden party with turf lawn, white-on-white resort style attire, and Hamptons style decor. The Hamptons culinary scene is grand yet relaxed, with abundant platters and tasteful buffets of fresh, local and seasonal produce. With a side of show-stopping cocktails, of course.

For a craft cocktail that looks like a garden party in a glass, serve up a Moscow Mule in traditional copper mugs. It’s delightfully fizzy and chilled, making it perfect for warm days.

When it comes time for a sundowner or a signature drink to cap off an amazing day and transition into the evening, don’t forget the margarita lovers in your life.

No birthday party is complete without the obligatory toast to the guest of honour. Say it in style with a French 75 in-hand and leave your guests feeling as though they have been thoroughly indulged from start to finish.

Bourbon and Bluegrass BBQ

This birthday party theme is perfect for the man in your life, even the one who doesn’t realise his beloved bourbon makes a great craft cocktail. The great thing with this theme is that you can get as hillbilly or as hipster as you like.

Add in a few rustic elements and up the Southern charm by streaming some acoustic country music while you and your guests sit around an open fire sipping on a Bourbon Old Fashioned. Evoking the Ole South should carry through to your choice of mouth-watering food — consider serving Bourbon BBQ glazed pork chops, smoky BBQ ribs, pulled pork sliders, Cajun spiced nuts, and Tex Mex chicken skewers.

Get your orange peels and cocktail strrirers at the ready and serve up a Negroni in a whiskey tumbler as your party begins to wrap up. Okay, it’s not bourbon but it’s still whiskey appreciation and that can’t ever be a bad thing, right?

Feeling a little underwhelmed with the standard rotation of drinks at your birthday parties? We don’t blame you. After trying out a few ideas from this list, your guests will be wishing it was their birthday all year long.

Considerations to Factor In

The number of guests is the most important factor, but there are a few other considerations, too.

How Many Guests Will Be Attending

The number of guests at your party will determine the amount of food you'll need. Make sure you ask guests to RSVP, but if you don't hear from someone, it's safest to assume he or she will attend.

Time of Day for the Party

The time of day dictates the types of food you'll serve. If the party is scheduled at mealtime, for example, you'll be expected to serve something substantial. If your party is at night or mid-afternoon, you can serve just appetizers and snacks.

Age Range of the Guests

You wouldn't think that the age range of the guests would be important for party planning, but consider this: How much food would you prepare for a group of ten teenagers? Now, how much food would you prepare for ten senior citizens? Generally, there can be a vast difference in appetites between different age groups.

Type of Food Being Served

If you're planning on serving a meal, or have lots of food to choose from at a buffet table, you can cut back on the snack foods and appetizers for your party. Conversely, if you're relying on finger foods only to fill up your guests, you'll need to have more of them on hand.

Five Best Food and Nutrition Tracking Tools

Keeping track of what you eat helps you eat right and make healthier food decisions , that much is given. However, when you make the commitment to tracking your diet, you need a tool that will help you, not get in the way. The best tools make it easy to add what you eat, can fill in the blanks with calorie and nutrition info, and can even help you work towards your goals. This week we're going to look at five of the best food and nutrition trackers, based on your nominations.

Keep a Daily Food Diary to Track Your Diet, Lose Weight, and Build Healthy Habits

More than a few studies have shown that people who actually keep track of what they eat on paper,…

Earlier in the week we asked you which apps and tools you used to track your diet . You weighed in with plenty of great suggestions, but a few definitely stood out above the others. Here's what you said:

You probably know that keeping a food "diary" can help you lose weight and build healthy eating…

The polls are closed and the votes are counted! To see which of these five great food and nutrition trackers took the top spot, head over to our Hive Five followup post to check out the winner!

Most Popular Food and Nutrition Tracking Tools: MyFitnessPal

Tracking your diet is the first step to getting control over it, and just the act of writing down…


MyFitnessPal has one of the largest food databases available in a diet tracker, and sports a robust webapp in addition to iOS and Android apps to help you stay on top of your diet on the go. Whether you're making something at home or eating out, MyFitnessPal can help you log it, and supports a number of popular (and many not-so-popular and small) restaurant menus. As you log your food, you get a complete picture of your diet, not just your overall calorie intake—that includes your sodium intake, your vitamin intake, cholesterol intake, and other nutritional information that can give you a better idea of what you're eating beyond a simple daily calorie limit.

Beyond its calorie counter and nutrition tracker, MyFitnessPal has a massive and active community of users, all eager to welcome newcomers and happy to trade recipes, tricks, meal plans, and stories about their successes and failures. The service is completely free, syncs with external activity trackers and smart scales like the Withings Smart Scale and Fitbit, and other apps you may already be using, like Endomondo, Runkeeper, and more. Instead of pushing a specific diet or health agenda on its users, it stands as primarily a nutrition tracking database and vibrant social community that just wants to help you get a handle on the foods you eat.


LoseIt is a combination food and activity tracker, and while its social features are bit sidelined, it's an extremely popular option for people looking to really get their arms around their portion size, daily caloric goals and intake, and start keeping an eye on the foods they eat. In addition to a webapp (which I've found a bit slow at times), LoseIt has great iOS and Android apps with barcode scanners that can quickly scan and add servings of packaged food you eat, or ingredients to the dishes you make. More than once I've managed to find something hidden in the depths of LoseIt's database by scanning its barcode when a keyword search turned up nothing. You can also add custom recipes and personal foods so you don't have to keep entering dishes you made by their component ingredients.

LoseIt also syncs with a number of activity trackers and smart scales, including the Fitbit, Jawbone Up, Withings Smart Scale, Nike Fuelband, and more. It can also connect with external apps and services like Runkeeper and MapMyFitness to pull in your activity data. The LoseIt community is active and robust, and the "challenges" tab will help you stay on your toes and take your fitness and diet goals to the next level. Track your exercise and weight loss goals in the webapp or mobile apps, and more. LoseIt's basic features are all free, but LoseIt recently unveiled LoseIt Premium for $40/yr that extends the service's nutrition and activity tracking features, includes some apps and services that free users don't get, and offers more reporting tools so you can see where you are and how far you've come.

Make fruit and vegetables more appealing

Whether picky eaters or not, kids don’t always want what’s healthy for them—especially fruit and vegetables. But there are ways to make them more enticing.

The first step is to limit access to unhealthy sweets and salty snacks. It’s much easier to convince your child that an apple with peanut butter is a treat if there are no cookies available. Here are some more tips for adding more fruits and veggies to your child’s diet:

Let your kids pick the produce. It can be fun for kids to see all the different kinds of fruits and veggies available, and to pick our new ones or old favorites to try.

Sneak vegetables into other foods. Add grated or shredded veggies to stews and sauces to make them blend in. Make cauliflower “mac” and cheese. Or bake some zucchini bread or carrot muffins.

Keep lots of fresh fruit and veggie snacks on hand. Make sure they’re already washed, cut up, and ready to go. Add yogurt, nut butter, or hummus for extra protein.

GMOS and pesticides: Keeping your children safe

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are mainly engineered to make food crops resistant to herbicides or to produce an insecticide. Since children’s brains and bodies are still developing, they are more sensitive to these toxins. Eating organic produce has been shown to reduce pesticide levels in kids, but tends to be more expensive. So how can you keep your children safe if you’re on a budget?

  • Feed your kids plenty of fruits and vegetables, whether they’re organic or conventionally grown—the benefits far outweigh the risks.
  • When possible, go organic for fruits and vegetables that you don’t peel before eating, such as berries, lettuce, tomatoes and apples. Choose conventional produce for thick-skinned fruit and veggies like oranges, bananas, and avocados.
  • Explore local farmers’ markets for less expensive organic produce.
  • Scrub conventionally grown produce with a brush. Washing won’t remove pesticides taken up by the roots and stem, but will remove pesticide residue.
  • When buying meat, choose organic, grass-fed whenever your budget allows. Choosing cheaper cuts of organic meat may be safer (and no more expensive) than prime cuts of industrially raised meat.
