Usually birthday parties are thrown by the friends and family members of the birthday guest of honor, but that is not how it always has to be.
There are many cases in which individuals choose to throw their own birthday parties and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
If you have no one else to spend your birthday with, though, you can always decide to throw yourself a birthday party and have a good time!
Who says that you can’t go to the movie yourself to have a good time on your birthday, The honest truth is that there are plenty of things that you can do by yourself on your birthday and you don’t have to have anyone else with you to do them.
The best part about throwing yourself a birthday party is that you can do anything you want and not feel bad about it.
For example, if you want to get bloated with pizza you can.
One of the best ways to throw yourself a birthday party is to have a movie marathon day.
Going out to rent several movies, ordering pizza, and buying candy is the best way to go if you’re going to spend the day at your house just relaxing on the couch.
If you’re a guy, or a girl for that matter, you can always buy a pack of beer or alcohol and spend the evening on the couch sipping alcohol with your favorite movies and television shows!
Upsides to Your Own Birthday Party!
There are also some upsides to throwing yourself a birthday party and not inviting anyone else.
The first upside is that you absolutely don’t need any invitations at all. Since you are the only one that’s going to be at your birthday party then you don’t need to worry about any invitations or any RSVP cards.
Another upside to being the only participant to your birthday party is that you don’t have to decorate if you don’t want to.
In fact, there’s no reason to decorate because you’re not going to have anyone see them anyway.
A third upside to the whole throw-yourself-a-party birthday is that you can do whatever you want whenever you want.
If you have a planned birthday party with friends and family then chances are that you’ll have to stick with what they want to do.
On the other hand, not inviting anyone else over means that you can do whatever you want and can even go out to a bar or a club if you want to. All things considered, there are virtually no downsides to throwing yourself a birthday party!
Birthday Party Essentials
Of course, you don’t want to miss out on all the birthday party essentials even though you are going to be the only one at your party.
For example, you’ll definitely have to buy a birthday cake so that it’ll actually feel like your birthday!
One thing that you’ll miss out on, though, if you don’t invite anyone over for your birthday is the opportunity for someone to sing the song “Happy Birthday” to you.
Even though that’s not a huge part of your birthday, it will still be missing from your special day.
All in all, though, having yourself your very own small and relaxing birthday party is just something that everyone needs every once in awhile.
If you are tired of all the hype and commercialization of birthday parties in the store then this may be your perfect opportunity to kick back, relax, and enjoy your own birthday!
