So, you would like to surprise your friend for her upcoming birthday celebration. You know she loves getting fit! She loves eating healthy food and exercising. Maybe a fitness-themed party will work for her. If you don’t have an idea how you are going to organize it, we are here to provide you a number of tips.
Tips in organizing a fitness-themed birthday party
How old is the birthday celebrator?
Is she turning 30? Why not have a non-stop 30-minute Zumba dance session? Or perhaps, your group can have a 30-kilometer bike ride. Just try to be creative and you’d be surprised how fun your ideas can be.
What songs keep her moving?
Do you know her playlist when she’s working out? If not, then you better ask her but in a subtle way. Compile all these songs and play it on her big day. Gather all your workout friends and go crazy exercising.
Or what about a friendly competition?
Think about the sports that the birthday celebrator wants to play. Is it tennis? Is it swimming? Is it softball? Create teams and have a small tournament for her birthday. Or if you want something different, you can play parlor games. That should still fire up everyone’s competitive spirit. How about a game of egg toss or scavenger hunt? It’s time to unleash the kid within.
Healthy food menu
Since most of your friends are conscious about their health, you might want to stay away from beer or pizza party. What you can do is to have a healthy yet delicious menu. If you don’t have time to prepare, you can simply order from restaurants with healthy options. But if you want to exert extra effort and you want to prepare the food, here are some ideas:
- Fruit skewers
- Vegetable sticks with healthy dip
- Caramelized onion, goat cheese & arugula flatbread
- Broccoli cauliflower salad
- Fruit salsa
- Avocado deviled eggs
- Sour cream and chive mashed potato
- Chicken skewers
- Cheesy bacon & kale potato skins
- Crispy parmesan baked chicken strips
- No-cook cherry tomato pasta sauce
For the drinks you can try the following:
