Man's birthday celebration

Men only at first glance seem indif­fer­ent to the sub­tleties of design, to the details. But a prop­er­ly orga­nized and bright hol­i­day also caus­es a storm of pos­i­tive emo­tions in them.

Organization Features

The orga­ni­za­tion of a men’s hol­i­day requires a slight­ly dif­fer­ent approach than in the case of a wom­en’s cel­e­bra­tion. Despite out­ward restraint, most men are also wait­ing for some­thing spe­cial on their birth­day. And this fea­ture is due to the nature, pref­er­ences and lifestyle of a per­son.

Men who are always in the spot­light usu­al­ly pre­fer min­i­mal­ism in every­thing.

The best hol­i­day for this type of peo­ple is a par­ty for two: hus­band and wife. With this approach to busi­ness, you need to dress up quite fes­tive­ly and arrange a roman­tic din­ner. With age, such cel­e­bra­tions are replaced by fam­i­ly gath­er­ings.

Men who love noisy com­pa­nies do not refuse a large-scale themed hol­i­day with a large num­ber of guests. These are usu­al­ly rel­a­tives, friends, work col­leagues. Ban­quets orga­nized in a spe­cial way are suit­able for such young peo­ple. We are talk­ing about nau­ti­cal-themed hol­i­days, cow­boy par­ties, retro-style events, and so on. A win-win option for spend­ing a hol­i­day is always relax­ing with a bar­be­cue in the fresh air. With the prop­er approach to orga­niz­ing such an event, the evening par­ty will be char­ac­ter­ized not just by eat­ing meat, but by active pas­time.

And for one type of young peo­ple, and for anoth­er, tra­di­tion­al approach­es to the over­all design of the room can­not be ignored. It would be appro­pri­ate to use bal­loons, can­dles and flor arrange­ments. The main thing in this busi­ness is a sense of pro­por­tion. It is bet­ter to make var­i­ous com­po­si­tions from bal­loons than just dec­o­rate the walls with them. Cars made of bal­loons, lit­tle men, always look good at a men’s hol­i­day. If it becomes nec­es­sary to dec­o­rate the walls with balls, then, if this is not an offi­cial recep­tion, you can make and hang var­i­ous ani­mals, sabers and so on.

When apply­ing, the age of the man should be tak­en into account. Old­er peo­ple will not under­stand the abun­dance of balls. Here you can lim­it your­self to the fig­ure of a boy or grand­par­ents.

At the men’s hol­i­day, as ll as at the wom­en’s, chil­dren’s, con­grat­u­la­to­ry stream­ers and posters with the best moments in life will always be rel­e­vant. Flors are used pri­mar­i­ly as table dec­o­ra­tions. These should be low and not par­tic­u­lar­ly wide com­po­si­tions. Oth­er­wise, they will block the treats. As for the design of dish­es, any per­son will be pleased to see the efforts in his hon­or. Sal­ads can be served by dec­o­rat­ing them prop­er­ly. The menu should be dom­i­nat­ed by meat dish­es, chick­en, duck, piglet, ide­al­ly served with car­cass­es.

Danc­ing, music, con­tests and games are the com­po­nents that no par­ty can do with­out. The hol­i­day of the man in this case is no excep­tion.

Contests and games

The choice of con­tests and games should be start­ed, start­ing from the pref­er­ences of the birth­day per­son, the venue of the hol­i­day and the num­ber of guests. For a small com­pa­ny, you need to select orig­i­nal enter­tain­ment that resem­bles home gath­er­ings. In large com­pa­nies, as a rule, guests do not know each oth­er much, which is nec­es­sar­i­ly tak­en into account when orga­niz­ing a hol­i­day. As for the venue, it, of course, affects the choice of com­pe­ti­tions, but is not the main cri­te­ri­on. A vari­ety of enter­tain­ment can be select­ed for a house par­ty, a cel­e­bra­tion in pub­lic places and a feast in the fresh air.

For home

A feast at home is orga­nized tak­ing into account the free space in the house or apart­ment. Below is a list of board games for which a large space is not required.

Contest “Reincarnation”

Two bags are brought into the room. In one — men’s things, and in the oth­er — wom­en’s. Men dress up women for a while, and then women dress men. Who­ev­er did it faster, he won. In this form, guests should stay for some time. At the table, each char­ac­ter draws out a task that must be per­formed by him: do hair, make-up, sing, dance or swad­dle a child, walk on a hair­pin, dance a waltz, and so on. Friend­ship wins.

Competition “Pig in a bag”

In the hands of the leader is a bag with unknown con­tents. Each guest tries to guess by touch what is in the bag. If he guessed cor­rect­ly, the con­tents remain his present, and if not, then the los­er ful­fills the wish of the birth­day man or makes a toast. As con­tent, two tan­ger­ines glued to each oth­er are used (if there are no guests at the table, then you can com­bine them with a banana), just a banana and oth­er com­ic attrib­ut­es.

Competition “Mummy”

Teams of 2 are select­ed. The task of the play­ers is to wrap the part­ner with toi­let paper from head to toe. The win­ner is the one who is ahead of his rivals.

Celebration in a cafe

Cel­e­brat­ing a birth­day in a cafe is good because, first­ly, you don’t have to wor­ry about observ­ing the silence regime. And, sec­ond­ly, the host­ess of the house does not need to be dis­tract­ed by serv­ing guests. In all enter­tain­ment, she can take an active part.

Competition “For a friend”

Guests are divid­ed into 2 teams. Their task is to take turns run­ning to the table and with­out hands to drink a glass for the birth­day boy. Dish­es must be plas­tic, some­thing for snacks must also be pre­sent­ed. The team that makes the cir­cle first wins.

Competition “Signalization”

Par­tic­i­pants are divid­ed into teams of 3 peo­ple. They draw for­feits, where it is indi­cat­ed what sound should be on their alarm. It could be a cock crow­ing, a ket­tle whistling, or a per­son snor­ing. Whose sig­nal­ing was loud­er and more coher­ent, they won.

Competition “In the image”

Par­tic­i­pants draw a phan­tom, which indi­cates in what way they should por­tray the hero of the occa­sion. It can be a lov­ing hus­band, boss, work col­league, broth­er, father, and so on.

Festive table

The fes­tive table is to some extent part of the over­all decor. If you want to impress the hero of the occa­sion and his guests, then the menu and table set­ting also need to be care­ful­ly thought out.

It is clear that meat dish­es should pre­vail at the men’s hol­i­day. But you should not refuse sal­ads either, because men, like women, are not averse to pay­ing atten­tion to an orig­i­nal and beau­ti­ful­ly dec­o­rat­ed appe­tiz­er. If cer­tain tones pre­dom­i­nate in the gen­er­al col­or scheme, for exam­ple, red, blue and oth­ers, then, if desired, the appear­ance of all dish­es can also be giv­en a sim­i­lar col­or.

For these pur­pos­es, you can use dyes, herbs or sprin­kle the dish with grat­ed yolk, pro­tein or beets.

For serv­ing, it is prefer­able to use plain dish­es: white, black, brown. Nap­kins should also be plain.

The high­light of any hol­i­day is the cake. Today, you can order a vari­ant of any kind from craftswomen. It can be a cake in the form of a bar­be­cue, a trea­sure chest or a beer mug. The idea for the cake should reflect the hob­by or char­ac­ter of the birth­day per­son.

If prepa­ra­tion for the hol­i­day is car­ried out in advance, then the col­or scheme of the cake can be matched to the col­or of the dec­o­ra­tion of the room. These sub­tleties are always con­spic­u­ous and tes­ti­fy to metic­u­lous work.

How to congratulate?

Men, unlike women, lis­ten­ing to con­grat­u­la­tions, first of all per­ceive not words, but pay atten­tion to orig­i­nal­i­ty. For this rea­son, in order to sur­prise your loved one dur­ing con­grat­u­la­tions, you need to pre­pare a sur­prise for him. Sur­pris­es are cho­sen, again, based on the age and num­ber of guests. Some­thing pure­ly per­son­al is bet­ter not to adver­tise, but to leave for a seclud­ed envi­ron­ment. But it is pos­si­ble to present in an orig­i­nal way what a per­son has long dreamed of in front of every­one.

Option number 1 “Matryoshka”

The gift is packed in a box that will fit him. Then that box is placed in a larg­er box, the next one is placed in anoth­er larg­er box, and so on as much as you like. To keep a per­son in sus­pense, there should be at least 5 box­es.

Each of them must be packed as the only one: wrap­ping paper and tape.

Option number 2 “Rubik’s Cube”

You will need 4 box­es of the same size. They are glued togeth­er so that it can be opened on each side. Gifts are laid on all sides and care­ful­ly sealed.

Option number 3 “Parcel”

The post­man runs in and says that he has a pack­age that he can­not deliv­er, since it is not indi­cat­ed to whom it is and from whom. He asks the birth­day boy to touch the box and guess what is inside. After con­jec­tures about the con­tent, spec­u­la­tion begins on who such mail could come from. After a com­ic bick­er­ing, the addressee appears and, with warm words, hands over a present.

Overview of script examples

The prepa­ra­tion of a script for a man’s birth­day should be start­ed, start­ing from age. If the birth­day boy is 30, 36, 37 years old and no more, then the hol­i­day should be groovy. At this age, the man has not lost his enthu­si­asm and vital inter­est, so you can hold com­ic con­tests with dress­ing up and gam­bling.

(Guests arrive ear­ly, and the birth­day boy should be a lit­tle late. The ide­al option would be when an orga­nized event becomes a sur­prise for the hero of the occa­sion).

The man opens the door, and there the guests greet him with applause and whistling.

Host: My friend, you have become a year old­er, let’s see if you have lost your for­mer scent and dex­ter­i­ty (they close their eyes to the birth­day man and take out a tray with two glass­es: in one of them — water, tea, com­pote, and in the oth­er — an alco­holic drink, the task of the birth­day man is to choose what he will drink and deter­mine the con­tents of the glass).

Host: Your scent is not lost with age, but how are things going with dex­ter­i­ty? (Helpers take out a not very long rope, a fruit is tied to it, it can be any­thing). Near the fruit is the key to the room. The hero of the occa­sion must eat the fruit with­out the help of hands in order to get the key and enter the room where the table is laid. After that, the guests enter the room and pre­pare to sit down at the table. The birth­day boy goes to each place and takes a sheet with a ques­tion from there.

His task is to guess who the place is intend­ed for. The guest, whose place is deter­mined, gives a gift.

Host (after the guests have a snack): It turns out that the own­er of the house knows his guests ll. Let’s see if he can play the role of Sher­lock Holmes and return the things stolen from them to the guests (an assis­tant enters the room, dec­o­rat­ed with things, guests: hat, scarf, gloves, shoes, tie, etc.).

Host: Enough guests to sit, you need to raise your ass.

We will go out to dance under the lezgin­ka.

And let’s dance Ukrain­ian

And then ‘ll go out with the pol­ka,

And ‘ll dance and ‘ll sing, and then ‘ll pour some more.

(Dances. Mov­ing dances must nec­es­sar­i­ly alter­nate with slow ones).

Lead­ing: We know how to dance ll, but what if the ene­my over­comes? You need to com­pete in accu­ra­cy in order to have some­one to com­pete with.

Com­pe­ti­tion “The most accu­rate” (For the com­pe­ti­tion, you will need chil­dren’s skit­tles or a sling­shot with balls. If there are chil­dren at the hol­i­day, then they should be the rivals of the birth­day boy).

Lead­ing: Well, shot, and now they drove to the table. I am speak­ing here in verse to sur­prise all of you (after the feast, the com­pe­ti­tion “Scrib­bler” is announced).

Com­pe­ti­tion “Scrib­bler”. A sheet with a pen is start­ed in a cir­cle, a wish is writ­ten down by the first guest, each sub­se­quent one should be con­so­nant with the pre­vi­ous one. As a result, a col­lec­tive con­grat­u­la­tion is obtained, which is past­ed on an impromp­tu wall post­card (what­man paper).

Lead­ing: We wished a lot here and piled a post­card, and now it’s time for us to cre­ate a por­trait of him (points to the hero of the occa­sion). The com­pe­ti­tion “Por­trait” is announced.

Com­pe­ti­tion “Por­trait”. Here you can make a divi­sion: “Birth­day through the eyes of women”, “Birth­day through the eyes of men”, chil­dren, and so on.

Con­grat­u­la­tions from the doc­tor. (An assis­tant in a nurse’s cos­tume runs in with the words “view-view-view”, and he has a flash­light in his hands).

Doc­tor: Well, ll, ll. I smell bad! An aged man (points to the birth­day boy), and they over­feed him here, sol­der him! And if the ulcer, and if the liv­er! Get­ting ready for the inspec­tion! The tem­per­a­ture is nor­mal, the heart is pound­ing, but what about the coor­di­na­tion of move­ments? Walk along the line (lays out a scarf), sit down, jump on one leg (all remarks are accom­pa­nied by the cor­re­spond­ing move­ments of the doc­tor and the per­son she is address­ing. All guests can be exam­ined). Yes, with such health you can go into space! Time to pour and eat! These are pills for tomor­row (gives anti-pohmelin).

Toast­mas­ter-leader: We danced nice­ly here,

Glo­ri­ous­ly knead­ed the bones,

And now at the right time

Please take a look at our cake.

(The lights are turned off and a cake with lit can­dles is brought in to soft music).

In the fam­i­ly cir­cle, you can also orga­nize a theme par­ty. To do this, you need to warn the guests and ask them to come in appro­pri­ate cos­tumes. A hol­i­day for an old­er per­son (50, 60 and 70 years old) can also be held accord­ing to the pro­posed sce­nario. Only a con­test with a nurse and eat­ing fruit with­out hands is bet­ter to replace with con­grat­u­la­tions on a for­tune-telling from a gyp­sy and look­ing for a key to lead­ing ques­tions. The lat­ter is rem­i­nis­cent of the game “Warm, hot, hot!”.

When orga­niz­ing a hol­i­day for a grand­fa­ther of 66–75 years old, spe­cial empha­sis should be placed on humor. It will be good if the hol­i­day turns out to be fun­ny and cheer­ful, so that a per­son under­stands that a fig­ure is not a rea­son for sad­ness.

When prepar­ing a hol­i­day among friends with­out a toast­mas­ter, it is nec­es­sary that some­one alone takes over the role of host, oth­er­wise the event will not have a log­i­cal sequence and a sin­gle struc­ture.

The choice of enter­tain­ment for the boss or col­leagues must be approached with par­tic­u­lar care, since not every­one in the team has friend­ly rela­tions. All com­pe­ti­tions and games must be of an offi­cial busi­ness nature. It can be “Poet”, “Por­trait” and oth­ers. Con­grat­u­la­tions from gyp­sies, Ital­ians per­fect­ly cheer up. If there are no friend­ly rela­tions, then all words and actions should be with­out vul­gar­i­ty.

The theme par­ty “In the style of the 90s” is pop­u­lar.

Guests come in appro­pri­ate cos­tumes, the room is dec­o­rat­ed in the Sovi­et style: this is a car­pet, por­traits of Stal­in and Lenin, music of the 90s is play­ing.

Toast­mas­ter, chew­ing gum, invites guests to a par­ty. The hol­i­day begins with a feast. It is opened by the best friend:

“Bro, you and I have gone through fire and water. At the same time, our rela­tion­ship was not exchanged for mon­ey or women. So let’s drink to the fact that our friend­ship only becomes stronger over the years.

Then comes the enter­tain­ment.

  • Con­test “Guess the melody” The table is divid­ed into 2 teams: right and left sides. Each team turns on a melody in turn, the goal is to guess it and con­tin­ue the song.
  • Bub­ble game. Par­tic­i­pants are giv­en 3 inflat­able chew­ing gums, the one who inflates the biggest bub­ble wins.
  • Fan­ta game. The birth­day boy sits with his back to the par­tic­i­pants, he is giv­en a box with per­son­al belong­ings of the guests. He express­es wish­es, what he would like the own­er of this or that thing to ful­fill. He him­self must deter­mine who car­ried out the task. For each cor­rect ansr, he receives a chew­ing gum as a present.
  • The game “Guess what it’s about.” This enter­tain­ment belongs to the cat­e­go­ry of drink­ing. Its essence lies in the fact that guests, accord­ing to the descrip­tion, must guess the hid­den object. It can be Tetris, dandy, roman­tic tape recorder and so on.
  • Dance com­pe­ti­tion “Musi­cal bat­tle”. Guests are divid­ed into two teams, their task is to dance each oth­er.

The event ends with a tra­di­tion­al tea par­ty.


  1. So that guests do not have time to get tired, com­pe­ti­tions need to be alter­nat­ed: mobile and games at the table.
  2. Too many enter­tain­ments should not be pre­pared, because, as a rule, close peo­ple gath­er, and they prob­a­bly want to chat.
  3. All enter­tain­ment, even at the table, is more inter­est­ing if there is musi­cal accom­pa­ni­ment.
  4. Events where the grand­fa­ther is the hero of the occa­sion are guid­ed by the warmth of fam­i­ly atten­tion. The birth­day per­son should feel love from all mem­bers of his fam­i­ly: chil­dren, grand­chil­dren, and so on.
