How to host a Margaritaville Themed Birthday Party?

For pirates of all ages, shapes, and sizes, there is little better than a Jimmy Buffett themed birthday party for fun and play. Much more than good music Jimmy Buffett has created a lifestyle all his own through his music and his fans' enthusiastic support. His music isn't limited to one genre and doesn't appeal to one specific culture; instead, the appeal is nearly limitless, making this a great theme for a birthday party open to an audience of all ages.

Margaritaville Party Food & Drinks

Blenders and ice are a must to pull off an excellent Margaritaville party. The next thing you need to worry about is food. Some great food ideas for a Margaritaville themed party would be boiled shrimp, build your own cheeseburgers' (in the paradise, of course), complimentary finger foods and fixings, and a little sponge cake/or fruitcake probably wouldn't hurt things at all. They would work wonders for the Jimmy Buffett approved theme of the party. If you need inspiration for menu ideas, you can check out the menu at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Cafe.

Margaritaville Party Decorations

If you are in a suitable climate and the weather is cooperative, a patio or backyard party is the way to go. Decorate with Tikki lights, shark fins, flowers, coconuts, and other tropical themes that capture your attention and imagination. Be sure to put grass skirts on the tables you set up with the fabulous foods, and place a nice Tikki bar for serving the required margaritas. You can also choose to serve non-alcoholic margaritas to the little ones if there will be children in attendance and have them available for adults that are driving or do not wish to partake. Have fun with the food and keep it appropriate for a tropical or Jimmy Buffett theme.

Margaritaville Party Music

Music is a must for this particular birthday party theme. You can't recreate Margaritaville without the sounds of the town blaring out across your speakers. You do not need to limit the music of the evening to Jimmy Buffett though he should play a prominent role in the entertainment for the evening. Other great sounds that will complement the evening theme include the Beach Boys, Bob Marley, and Bobby McFerrin. Of course, use your imagination and go with your taste. My personal preference would be to showcase all things Jimmy Buffett for the evening, but that doesn't work for everyone.

Be sure to take measures to ensure that everyone makes it home safely if you are serving alcohol and work to ensure that everyone has a fun and memorable evening in Margaritaville. You might want to include contests such as the loudest "Hawaiian shirt" for extra fun or the most memorable flip-flops. Remember, the goal is to have fun and make sure that everyone attending has fun also. If you have the equipment, Jimmy Buffet karaoke is a must, and video recordings for future blackmail and a recording of the revelry are also highly recommended. All in all, Margaritaville is a place that many of us dream of going to escape every day. Wouldn't it be an excellent theme for a birthday party that makes that day a little more special than the rest for everyone invited and not just the one celebrating?

The next time you are lost for a great theme to add to your birthday party theme inventory, consider the benefit to one and all of adding an evening under the stars and on the sand to your plans. Margaritaville is the perfect setting for a truly festive celebration, no matter how old the pirate in your life may be. Just remember to keep the saltshaker insight, and the party should go off without a hitch.
