10 Inspired Outdoor Birthday Party Ideas for Adults

Summer birthdays can be a good and bad thing—it's good because the weather is totally perfect, but the downside is that it can be challenging to get everyone together when timeshares and getaways are a plenty (I know this firsthand because this Gemini's birthday is this week). The thing is that if you pick from some of the best outdoor birthday party ideas and send your invites out with some time to spare, you'll be able to round everybody up for a day or night out together alfresco. And what's better than soaking up the sun with all your favorite people as you blow out your candles and make your wish for the next year?

You should pick your theme based on your preferences and your crowd (some are geared toward the ladies, some are family-friendly—you get the deal). And we decided to get a little creative with our ideas which you'll see because a pool party is not on the list, so your birthday can be as special as you are. So go on and keep reading to see the outdoor birthday ideas we're considering for our special day to inspire gatherings of your own.
