Weddings, birthdays, and graduations are great reasons to plan an elaborate party but what if the next celebration scribbled in your calendar isn’t for six more months? Does that mean you’re not going to party for half a year because you’re waiting for a Hallmark reason? That’s silly! (Unless you hate celebrating things, in which case you’re not going to like this post.)

The truth is, being alive is a reason to celebrate. I remember when I was writing my funeral plans people told me that party sounded like a hell of a time and it was sad I wouldn’t get to experience it. Then someone suggested I throw that party for my 30th birthday instead of waiting till I die. I thought that was a great idea, but also a great larger concept for life. Why wait to party?

I’ve already made you a list of 100 reasons to celebrate life, those are prompts for things a little more simple. Bringing your own umbrellas for your beverages at a restaurant doesn’t take much planning or money. The list of party ideas I’m sharing with you today is for more elaborate and thought-out celebrations that might require some people, decorations, and a place to do activities. Keep in mind lots of these things can be little to no money, you just have to be creative. So check out this list of reasons to have a party! You can also look at them as themes.
