Bowling Party Themes


Our adult bowling birthday parties are just as much fun as our kids parties. Just bring your 20-to-90-somethings and we'll help you with the rest. From delicious food and adult beverages to cakes and decorations, we've got just what your birthday crowd wants: a great time.

Bring out the big kid in every “adult” you know. Here are 10 birthday themes for adults you can incorporate into your bowling party.

Bring out the big kid in every “adult” you know.

Picture-perfect birthday party.

  • Take a stroll down memory lane and ask everyone to contribute photos they have of the birthday guy or girl. Create t-shirts for all the guests with the best photo. Stick them on the ball return. Have gift bags for guests with a photo printed on the outside. It’s a great way to make the special day truly one they won’t forget. 

Go back in time. 

  • Have a themed party that will be especially nostalgic for the birthday recipient. Have a 50s sock hop. Ever seen a hippies bowl? Have a screamin’ 80s hair band bash. The possibilities are endless. 


  • An eye-catching party is one that’s very easy. Find out the birthday guy or girl’s favorite color and make everything from paper cups and plates to decorations and cakes match. Ask the guests to dress in that color. Even if that means pink, guys.

Glow In The Dark.

  • Take advantage of the neon lights and cosmic bowling that many alleys offer. Have a glow-in-the-dark party with fluorescent decorations, glow sticks, and blacklight-reactive clothing. It's a futuristic and visually exciting theme.

Sports Team Celebration.

  • If the birthday person is a sports enthusiast, choose a theme based on their favorite sports team. Decorate with team colors and memorabilia, and encourage guests to wear jerseys or team gear.

Hawaiian Luau.

  • Bring a touch of the tropics to the bowling alley with a Hawaiian luau theme. Decorate with leis, tiki torches, and tropical flowers. Serve Hawaiian cuisine and tropical cocktails to complete the experience.

Costume Bowling.

  • Make the bowling party a costume contest where guests come dressed as their favorite characters, historical figures, or anything they like. It's a great way to add a unique and entertaining twist to the party.


  • Dust off your boots and put on your best cowboy hat! Play country tunes, decorate with cow print accents, and serve some BBQ. Ask your guests to dress up in their best Western wear for a night of Wild West fun.
