Channel your inner '80s child, pile on the pearls for a vintage soirée, and brush up on your sonnets, as those are just a few of the themed parties hitting the scene this season for the 21-plus crowd. Although the décor of these parties is a bit more elegant than it would be at a child’s princess party, take a cue from the neon hues and tiny bites to create a warm, inviting ambiance for your guests to celebrate with you through the night.

Finger foods get an adult upgrade with make-your-own slider bars, wings, tea sandwiches, and kebobs, but be sure to keep the sugar rush coming with a chic candy buffet, fitting with the theme of the party. As for the cocktails, old-school punches and new-age craft brews are popping up more frequently on the party scene, so by all means, pour yourself a glass and cheers to the birthday host.
