When it comes to celebrating birthdays, Miami is the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable bash! With its vibrant culture, beautiful beaches, and electric nightlife, this city offers an array of fabulous themes that will take your birthday party to the next level. Get ready to soak up the Miami vibes and dive into these scorching hot birthday party themes!
Miami Vice Retro Soirée
Pay homage to the iconic ’80s TV series with a Miami Vice party! Start with neon lighting to set the ambiance, then add palm tree decorations and a South Beach-inspired photo booth. Encourage guests to wear pastel suits, oversized sunglasses, and fedora hats.
Tropical Paradise Beach Party
Embrace the sun, sand, and sea with a beach party! Lean in to the theme with tropical drinks (mini umbrellas mandatory) and beach themed snacks (a fruit platter arranged to look like a beach ball, blue jello with Swedish fish “swimming” in it, pretzels served in a plastic pail). Lounge chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels will complete the vibe. Pro tip: Be prepared to light a bonfire in case the party is still going strong even after the sun goes down.
Glow in the Dark Night Fever
Light up the night with a super-fun glow in the dark party! Deck out your vacation rental or another venue with black lights, LED decor, and glowing centerpieces. Throw in a heaping dose of glow sticks and necklaces, body paint, and neon accessories, and get ready to be dazzled.
Havana Nights Cuban Fiesta
Transport your guests to Cuba with a vibrant Havana Nights fiesta. Colorful lanterns, vintage posters, and tropical flowers will create a festive atmosphere. Add Cuban-inspired cuisine and specialty cocktails like mojitos and daiquiris, and you’ll be living your best island life, all without having to leave your backyard.
Poolside Paradise Luau
A luau is always a great idea for a theme party because it’s so easy and sooo fun. Tiki torches, leis, Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts—it’s a total winner! Tiki drinks will bump up the festive feels, and tropical-themed pool floats, pool games, hula dancing, and a limbo contest will bring it all home. Aloha!
Art Deco Extravaganza Gatsby Glam
The vibrancy of Miami always makes us think of the roaring ’20s, so why not go all out with a Gatsby-style soirée? Flapper dresses and dapper suits will make guests feel super glam, and feathers, glittering chandeliers and jazz music will transport you to a whole different era. (And thank goodness Prohibition is over!)
Viva Las Vegas Casino Royale
Enjoy the energy of Vegas even when you’re in Miami with a casino night! Set up casino tables and spend the night in style playing poker, blackjack, roulette, or any other of your favorite games. We also suggest serving martinis (shaken, not stirred) as the drink of choice.
Miami Heat Sports Spectacular
For the sporty birthday person, go all in on an athletic theme. Just use their favorite Miami team as the inspiration for decorations (colored balloons, team posters, a logo cake), and have guests show up repping with team gear. Serve stadium food and beer and host sports-related games and competitions to bring a little gameplay to the party.
Tropical Glow Caribbean Carnival
Bring a little Caribbean culture to you with a Carnival-themed party. Dress in colorful costumes and wear traditional Carnival masks to set the stage. For music it’s gotta be steel drums or samba music, and samba dancing will be an absolute MUST.
Miami Nights Rooftop Party
Take your celebration sky high with a rooftop party! Book a private lounge or rooftop bar so you can take in the skyline as you celebrate, and decorate with twinkly lights for a pretty, luxurious vibe. Signature cocktails and a private DJ will round out the evening.
Bonus: Instagram Captions for your Birthday!
Because we want you to focus on having fun and not on writing your instagram captions, we put some together for you. Just save these to your phone and include them with your fave pics from the weekend. Enjoy!
