Exciting Bowling Birthday Party Ideas

Whether you’re looking to celebrate your own birthday or throw the perfect party for your child, look no further than your local bowling alley. Bowling is an excellent solution for any party, but it’s especially great for birthdays. With so many bowling birthday party ideas out there, it’s easy to choose the one that fits the personality of the birthday boy or girl.

Movie-Themed Party

Choose your favorite movie and run with it! There’s no reason that Star Wars and bowling can’t combine for a party of epic proportions. Start with Star Wars-themed invitations, inviting each attendee to dress up as their favorite character. If dressing up is too much, that’s okay. There will be plenty of other ways to incorporate the theme into the party. You can choose to have a lightsaber, glow-in-the-dark bowling session, give each person a Star Wars-themed name to bowl under and serve lots of themed foods too. This isn’t a Star Wars exclusive idea. Whether you love Harry Potter, The Lego Movie, or even My Little Pony, there are plenty of ways to incorporate your favorite movie into your bowling party.

Competition Games

Bowling is a game in and of itself, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take things up a notch. For your next birthday party, have some fun with the traditional rules. Have a style competition, where each player gets points for how creative they are when approaching the lane. You can also see which team gets higher points or even which team can get the lowest points. For kids, add to the fun by throwing candy in to the mix. Put out a bowl of colored candies. Each turn, the player will pick a candy. Each candy is assigned to a certain bowling style or silly rule that they’ll have to abide by for that turn. It’s a gut-busting way to enjoy every frame. No matter what you come up with, your party guests will love playing by your rules.

Retro Party

Bowling isn’t just for kids. In fact, some of the most fun bowling birthday parties are thrown by adults. If you’re looking for a great way to celebrate your birthday, throw a retro bowling party. Have each guest dress up from the decade you were born in, or your favorite era. If the 1970s is your choice, be prepared for jumpsuits, bell bottoms, sunglasses, and afros. Supply your guests with some faux mustaches and have a ball boogying down while bowling.

Country Bowling

If the retro theme isn’t your cup of tea, swap it out for something a bit more all-American. Country bowling is a theme that everyone can get behind. Think overalls, cowboy hats, short shorts, cut-off tees, and bandanas. Invite each of your guests to come dressed in their favorite attire and get ready for a knee-slapping good time. Throw in some beer, pizza, nachos, and laughter and you’ve got the makings of an epic birthday party!
