@prncss47:  What about lawn darts/quaits, cornhole, bean bags, horseshoes, stuff like that. A Cornhole tourney would be soooo fun.

@phillybride61513:  I was going to saw these items as well.  Even crouquet is a lot of fun at a party. My family loves to pull it out at BBQs.

You could do an old school pinata and fill it with nips instead of candy.

@phillybride61513:  Exactly what I was thinking. Cornhole is always fun at outdoor bbqs. Maybe have a bonfire or set up tiki torches.

Bags or Bocce? Firepit + Smores?

Our family gatherings usually include competitive board games and full contact bocci, among other lawn games. What about having a photo-booth or a bounce-house? 

Also, you could do a theme party. For example, we will be having a “Hawaiian Shirt Party” this summer for our friends and family. Prizes will be given out to the guests with the best (i.e., brightest/ugliest/flashiest) shirt; maybe have some trivia questions lined up? How about an American Gladiator competition? Set up an obstacle course, buy some foam tubes (pool toys) and have a little competition.

Lawn games all sound fun.  My fiance had a shirt at his thirtieth birthday that had a square root symbol with the number 900 under it, and then on the back it had the date of his birthday.  You could also get him something from here: http://www.zazzle.com/30+gifts

@prncss47:  I’ve never been to an adult party where there was a bouncy house, but I have been to children’s parties where there was a bouncy house and booze… and believe me, adults got in the bouncy house. 😛

@prncss47:  A bouncy house is not appropriate for an adult birthday party.

@prncss47:  Yes, I’ve been to an adult party with a bounce-house. Some of the over-18 crowd climbed in an bounced around. BUT, I do think it depends on your guests. It can be a hit with some groups, but completely fizzle out with others. Just something to think about. 

 @peachacid:  I wouldn’t label it “inappropirate” but its definitely not the norm. I doubt  anyone would be offended by it, but they may find it odd/awkward.
