Celebrate Your Birthday In Style – 2021 Birthday Ideas

Who wants to have the same old birthday celebration, year, after year, after year? Perhaps not many, but that’s what most people find themselves doing throughout their whole lifetime. Why not be rebellious and do something different? Instead of the typical cake and candles, why not opt for something more extravagant and fun? How about adding Sparklers into the mix? Here are some fantastic 2021 Birthday Ideas that’ll really turn your party into an unforgettable event.


Sparklers are to candles what carnivals are to playgrounds: much, much cooler and so much more fun! The sparks and fire flying through the air create the same sense of excitement that is felt on the fourth of July when the fireworks go off. It’s magical. There is something about fire and sparks that bring out the children in even the oldest of persons, so don’t hesitate to set some Sparklers off on old Aunt Jane’s 90th birthday! You just might see a childlike glimmer light up in her eyes!

Young At Heart

No matter how old we grow, there is always a sense of fun, a sense of humor, that never really goes away. We all want to be surprised on our birthdays, made to feel special, made to feel loved. It’s the one day of the year that is truly all ours if we will allow the spotlight to be on just us. Remember this when you are planning a birthday for someone, and be as unique in your planning as you can for your precious loved one. Whether you are planning a birthday for a toddler or for someone turning 50, the sentiment should always stay the same: celebrate life!

The Best 2021 Birthday Ideas


No matter where you are holding the celebration, sparklers can be used to decorate. You can add them to the top of the cake. Used as party favors, or given out to the guests to light when the birthday boy or girl comes into the room! Not only do they come in a simple stick form, they now are made in the shape of a heart. So, pick which style is right for you and the party you are throwing. They also come in number-shaped sparklers. So you can have twice the amount of sparkles and fun just by adding them to the top of the cake! Choose the number of sparklers you want based on the type of party you are throwing. We suggest for a simple and quiet birthday, choose just number-shaped sparklers to adorn the cake. For a grand and exciting party, order a large number of sparklers and have the guests double up on how many they hold. The choice is yours, but either way, with just a few or a whole lot, adding Sparklers will really bring the party to life!

A Special Touch

Sparklers add a special something that you just can’t get anywhere else. Think of them whenever you are celebrating any special occasion. Whether it is a birthday, wedding, anniversary, birth, graduation, or any of the hundreds of other special occasions that we might celebrate during our lifetime. Or perhaps, you are one of those special people who don’t need an excuse to celebrate life. Every day is a celebration to you. In that case, light em’ up, just because.

Inspiration For Using Sparklers On Holidays

Sparklers mean excitement to children and adults alike. They signify a deviation from standard party poppers, balloons, and other decorations. Sparklers are an ideal choice for someone looking to upgrade the festivities and add a bit of light, sparkle, and joy. Sparklers are incredibly versatile and chic and go well with a number of special occasions. Here is a little Inspiration for using sparklers on holidays to jazz up any event.

Your Regular Weekend Family Dinner

Who said you can’t use sparklers on family dinners and get-togethers? These times with the family are amongst the most beautiful memories that you must preserve with photos and videos and using sparklers before everyone digs into grandma’s specialty pot pie is a great way to mark the occasion, (even if it comes a couple of weekends a month). Just make sure to exercise caution when using sparklers in the house around pets or children. Light the sparkler but keep it at a distance from your body.

Jazz Up A Mundane Birthday

After childhood, most birthdays seem just a little boring. If you want to do an impromptu birthday celebration for your adult best friend with just pizza and beer, birthday sparklers can really add a sense of occasion. Not to mention most adults do not prefer elaborate birthday decorations unless they’re that rare person who loves a good theme or dress-up birthday party.

The New Year Or The First Day

Sparklers are almost considered synonymous with New Year’s celebrations as they are the perfect way to mark a new beginning and new resolutions. They are also more pleasing to look at than noisemakers and easier to use than something like smoke bombs. Not to mention you can use environmentally friendly sparklers or biodegradable ones.

New Year’s Eve Sparklers work well for first days too; such as the first day of a new job. They are an easy way to take the celebration to the next level for events like anniversaries or marriage proposals.

It’s Christmas Time

Christmas is when you have to go all out in terms of décor and Christmas sparklers are a welcomed addition to the general splendor. They’re a good background for singing Christmas carols or for after dinner on Christmas Eve too. Not to mention they make a terrific centerpiece at the dinner table and can be used in the garden in the evening to compliment the rest of the Christmas decorations and lights.

An Expression Of Love

Valentine’s Day is perfect for sparklers, they also come in heart shapes! Whether you’re about to pop the big question or profess your everlasting love, sparklers may it all the more special, bright and memorable.

For Those That Scare Easily

Halloween is terrific fun especially with the right decorations and all the fixings. Carved-up pumpkins, glimmering skeletons, eerie cobwebs, all add to the thrill and Halloween sparklers can too. You can put them inside mason jars, in pumpkins as well as in a skeleton’s eye sockets. The sky is really the limit to using sparklers to scare and delight the little one’s trick or treating!

Sparklers For Cupcakes

Cupcakes have taken America by storm, popping up in specialty shops on every corner you see.  They are becoming the dessert of choice at birthday parties, weddings, and special events across the globe. What goes great with cupcakes? OK fine, yes, milk goes good with cupcakes, but sparklers for cupcakes – now that’s great!

How Long Do Cupcake Sparklers Last?

The #10 sparklers work best for desserts such as cupcakes. Each Sparkler, once lit, lasts about 40 seconds each.

Plus, sparklers do not go bad.  Buy sparklers in bulk, use them for this year’s birthday, and for next year’s as well.

Add A Personal Touch

Why not take it a step further and add a personalized tag to each individual sparkler, perhaps with a special quote or a simple thank you. You could also give your guests party favors by handing them out at the end of the night for them to use on another special night of their own. If you are throwing a party, there’s really no end to what you can do to make it over-the-top!

Make It Special

Of course, you want to make the party special for the guest-of-honor (even if that person is you!) but you also want to make it special for each and every guest that comes.

Birthday Cake Sparklers

It does not matter if you are a kid or a kid at heart, everyone loves celebrating their birthday with cake. This year, for your birthday, let’s make it more interesting. Forget the boring candles and replace them with birthday cake sparklers!

What are birthday cake sparklers?

There are a few different types of sparklers that can be used on birthday cakes or cupcakes. The #10 sparklers make for good dessert sparklers. They are are a small, sturdy, traditional stick sparkler with a metal, gray handle. When lit, they burn with a gold spark. They last for approximately 35 seconds. These are considered a low smoke sparkler which makes them good for any pictures that may be taken during your celebration.

Another type of birthday cake sparkler is the big birthday cake sparkler. Other names for these sparklers include, bottle sparklers, champagne sparklers and ice fountains. These sparklers come in either a gold or silver foil wrapper. The sparklers have a plastic point that can be placed directly in the cake. When lit, the sparklers burn with a gold spark. Depending on the type of birthday cake sparkler, they will last 30 seconds or 45 seconds. These sparklers are also considered a low smoke sparkler. Compared to a traditional sparkler, big birthday cake sparklers burn more like a fountain, creating very little ash.

Birthday cake sparklers are a low smoke sparkler and many restaurants do use them indoors as a way of celebrating a customer’s birthday. However, it is important to remember that sparklers are considered a pyrotechnic and all sparklers, no matter what they are used for, come with a label warning the purchaser that sparklers are for outdoor use only.

Sparklers and Holidays

When I think of holidays, I think of get togethers.It doesn’t matter if its Christmas or July 4th. It doesn’t matter if its for family, friends or even coworkers. Sometimes its an intimate party inside and sometimes its a large bbq in the backyard.  There is always plenty of food and entertainment. And this year, I am going to be sure to include sparklers!

Most of us probably use sparklers for July 4th.  Its a fun way to pass the time while waiting for the larger fireworks show to begin.  Children (and most adults too!) love to see the gold sparks of the small #8 sparklers.  The pretty colored sparklers are always a hit too. Are you having desserts at your bbq? Add a party sparkler or two, to the top of your cake or cupcakes for a festive feel to the end of your night. Create your own custom sparkler tags as a thank you to your guests for spending their evening with you.   Don’t forget to mark the beginning and end of summer with sparklers too.  Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends are traditionally filled with bbqs and picnics. Make sparklers part of your tradition as well!
