First Step the Theme
The most important step is deciding where you are going to hold this party at home or going out. This all depends on what the birthday boy likes. Choose a theme that you know he would like and if you are the one preparing, your own party, and then the choice is yours.

- Casino game night very popular,
- Medieval night from dressing up as knights, kings to queens,

Do not forget the food
As you know, there will be loads of drinking taking place for those that like a drink or two. So always remember this, have plenty of carb heavy food available for the guests. These will help those that overindulge a bit too much to absorb the alcohol and even provide some energy. Preferably, serve up the birthday food in the beginning of the party to ensure that your guests have a great start before drinking too much.
Food plays a big role at any party deciding on the right food is important if you go for hot foods some simple menus like:
- Chili dishes,
- Warm or mild curry with plenty of rice,
- Variation of pasta food, meaty with lots of cheese or mild to hot meaty pizzas,
- The all time favorite burgers, filled salty pastries,
- Chinese food will do, as most 21 year olds will be more interested in the drink.
Always keep extra snacks for later in the evening especially after your guests have been drinking for a few hours. In addition, if you are following a theme ensure that the foods you use have many carbs for intake.
Provide them with early breakfast snacks such as mini toasts with cheese and ham, cheese or toast with sardines with a touch of tobacco, just right to provide the oil needed for that liver.
The other important part is the birthday boy’s party cake, for some this may be tradition so choose a cake on his favorite sport, cake filled with lots of rum or even a cake with the birthday boy’s photo on it there are wide choices when it come to cakes.
And for those that do not follow traditions build a tower of small round chocolate éclairs to provide the in between sweetness while drinking. Even a rainbow colored square injected alcohol beverage jelly cake will do the trick to make a difference to any 21st birthday party.
Just as important as the food is the birthday party gift, advice the guests with ideas on gifts that he may need from beer to coffee mugs, the latest cell phone he has had his eye on, even a PSP game. Advise all guests to write small-personalized letters and birthday messages for the special birthday man.
