Whether you’re throwing a cheers and beers party for someone’s birthday or just for the fun of it, there’s nothing quite like it. That’s why we compiled the best decorations, activities, and supplies to make your Cheers and Beers to 30 Years and more birthday party one to remember.
Cheers and Beers Invitation
Set the tone for the Cheers and Beers party starting off with these themed-invitations. There are many options for customizable templates.
Cheers and Beers Banner
What’s a party without décor?
Hang this Cheers and Beers to 30 Years banner over the refreshments table (or, let’s be real, the beer cooler) to set the tone right for the whole evening.
Cheers and Beers Cookies
Your guests will need snacks to go with the beer they’ll be enjoying.
These adorable Cheers and Beers hand-iced sugar cookies are a bit of a splurge, but since they’re cute enough to double as décor, it’s well worth the investment.
Everyone will coo over how sweet they look, right until they gobble them up.
Cheers and Beers Cake Toppers
If your crowd isn’t the type for sugar cookies, pop these Cheers and Beers cake toppers into your refreshments instead.
Customize them with your guest of honor’s face to toast them.
It’s sure to make them smile (and maybe hide their face in embarrassment) while you all tell them how much you love them.
If your crowd isn’t into sweets at all, no worries – these would go well in just about any snack food, from soft pretzels to mini meatballs.
Cheers and Beers Plates
We’re all about party supplies that double as decor.
If you’re throwing a Cheers and Beers party, go all-out and lean into the theme with these Cheers and Beers plates.
These fun, kitschy plates are sure to make your guests smile.
Even better, they’ll save the host tons of clean-up time after all the guests leave – no plates to wash!
Beer Honeycomb Card
Unfold this larger-than-life beer stein and watch your guests play with it all night (it’s decorative, but probably won’t stay that way for long).
We recommend buying a few and dispersing them around the room.
Brushed Gold Bottle Opener
Sure, this might be a bit classier than the theme of the party implies, but there’s nothing wrong with injecting a bit of class and refinement into a wild bash.
Besides, you can never have enough bottle openers at a beer-themed party.
Is it perfect that the gold color goes perfectly with the rest of the party color scheme?
Yes. Is it a great excuse to buy yourself a pretty new bottle opener as a hostess gift for planning and throwing such a fun shindig? Also yes.
Personalized Cheers Temporary Tattoos
Are temporary tattoos exceptionally silly? Absolutely.
But a Cheers and Beers party is all about fun and whimsy, which makes these the perfect party favor to hand your guests once they arrive (along with a can of beer).
Your guests will jump at the opportunity to (temporarily) tattoo themselves with the guest of honor’s face, and the next morning they’ll have a lovely (if fleeting) reminder of the night’s antics.
Cheers Bottle Opener
Remember what we just said about never having enough bottle openers at a beer-themed party?
Trust us, you’ll be glad you planned ahead. Keep the classy Cheers Bottle Opener listed above for yourself, and send the guest of honor home with this one as a memento.
Beer Tasting Score Cards
Start the party off on a classy note by handing each guest a beer tasting score card.
Set up a blind tasting with ten different options for everyone to try.
Give them time to write down their thoughts and tasting notes, and to score each sample.
Even diehard PBR fans might end up finding a new favorite variety without realizing it!
Just be sure to have a wide range of beers to try for the most interesting experience possible.
Beer Tasting Bingo
If you’re going all-out with your selection or throwing a BYOB bash, beer tasting bingo cards are a fantastic way to go.
It turns beer-drinking into a social activity and invites people to share their favorites with their friends while they try something new.
Bingo sheets help eliminate any early-party awkwardness and warm up the crowd until the party descends into delightful chaos.
Custom Beer Tasting Flight Paddle with Glasses
You probably won’t want to splurge on a paddle like this for every guest, but it’s a great idea to set up your guest of honor with a formal flight while you lead all your guests through a guided tasting.
It adds a touch of ceremony to the festivities and will keep the focus locked onto the person you’re all there to celebrate.
At the end of the night, send your guest of honor home with the flight paddle and glasses as a lovely gift.
Beer Flight Placemats
For the rest of your guests, slip them a flight placemat.
As the hostess, you’ll walk them all through the steps of noting each selection’s appearance, smell, taste, texture, and finishing notes.
This is another helpful opening activity to get people talking, and feels surprisingly classy for a cheers and beers party.
We’re all about versatility here.
Wood Snack Tray (Okay, it’s a cheese board, but we won’t tell if you don’t.)
You can’t throw a cheers and beers party without being prepared to feed your guests – a lot.
A nice wood snack tray like this is the perfect place to lay your snack spread.
Think classic bar foods like sliders, jalapeno poppers, nachos, fries, and wings.
The benefit to using a large board like this for all your food is that once it’s empty, you can easily take it back to the kitchen, wipe it off, refill it, and bam, your guests are ready to start snacking all over again.
A cheers and beers party is all about fun, whatever that looks like for your crowd.
With these ideas to get you started, you’re sure to be on the right track for a fun Cheers and Beers to 30 years, 40 years, 50 years and beyond birthday party.
