Top March Birthday Party Ideas
Mardi Gras and St. Patrick’s Day are the most famous events in the march. Most people choose one of these two themes for their birthday party. But who said you have to stop here? There are plenty of other great ideas for a March birthday party. If you want to have an awesome birthday this march, try one of the following themes:
Celebrity Dress Up party
Who does not want to dress up as their favorite celebrity for the day? March is the birth month of many iconic celebrities, from Daniel Craig (aka James Bond) to beloved actors, musicians, and athletes. It’s really simple.
Choose your favorite celebrity who has a birthday in march. But make sure to choose a character who has some special dress up so you can pick and customize it. Following are a few of my favorite celebrities that I would love to dress up as:
- Kurt Russell: Ego the Living Planet
- Albert Einstein: Genius
- Matthew Broderick: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Lion King
- William Shatner: Star Trek
- Chris Martin: Game of Thrones
Game Night Party
I love games and I bet you do too. What better way to spend your birthday than playing games with friends, family and loved ones? A game night party is about having fun while playing board games. Hosting a game night involves setting up the space for several competitive or cooperative board games.
You can also encourage your guests to bring their own board games. Some of the best game night party ideas include Scrabble, Monopoly, Bingo and Charades. And if you want to try something different, I would say try among us themed party night. This is the perfect way to celebrate your March birthday with fun and excitement.
Holi which is an Indian traditional festival of colors is celebrated on the 8th of every March. So why not have a Color Party on your birthday? This theme is perfect for outdoor events and involves throwing powdered colors, water balloons, and even squirt guns with colored water at each other.
I know it sounds like a lot of fun which is true. And the best part is you can customize the colors according to your preference. You may choose multiple colors like red, green, blue, yellow and orange or opt for a single color like pink or purple.
Anything but a cup party is a popular theme for reunion parties. As the name suggests, guests are encouraged to bring their own drinking vessel, but the catch is that it can’t be a traditional cup or glass.
The idea is to get creative and bring something unique to drink out of, such as a boot, a flower pot, or even a traffic cone. I did this party last week when I met my friends after a long time. It was so much fun to see everyone’s unique vessels and laugh out loud at their crazy choices.
March Madness Party
March is not complete without a Madness party. It is the most anticipated event of the year for basketball fans around the globe. I love watching the NCAA tournament and I’m sure so do many of you.
While watching the games at home or in a sports bar is always an option, why not take things up by hosting your March Madness-themed party? Let me help you to throw the perfect march theme party that your guests won’t forget.
Decorate in Your Favorite Team’s Colors
Kansas Jayhawk is my favorite team. So one of the first things you should do is decorate in your favorite team’s colors. This will help get everyone in the party spirit and excite them for the games. You can hang streamers and banners from the ceiling and use tablecloths and napkins in your team’s colors. And don’t forget about the T-shirts.
Set Up a TV in a Central Location
Obviously how can you watch a game without TV? But make sure to set up a TV in a central location. This way, everyone at the party can see the game and cheer on their favorite teams. If you have multiple TVs, you can set them up in different rooms so people can watch multiple games simultaneously.
Make Sure You Have Plenty of Beverages
Another essential element of any good party is having plenty of beverages. This is especially important for a Madness party, as people will likely spend several hours watching the games. Make sure to have plenty of water, soda, and beer to keep everyone hydrated throughout the day.
Prepare Some Delicious Snacks
No party is complete without some delicious snacks, and your March Madness party is no exception. There are plenty of great snack options that will be sure to please everyone at your party. You can make simple snacks like chips and dip or get more creative with basketball-shaped cookies or cupcakes decorated with team logos.
Set Up a Bracket for Your Guests to Fill Out
One of the most fun parts of March Madness is filling out a bracket to see who will win each game. If you’re having a party, you can set up a bracket for your guests to fill out before the games begin. You can also offer prizes for whoever has the most accurate bracket at the end of the tournament.
Play Some March Madness Inspired Games
If you’re looking for fun activities to keep your guests entertained in between games, why not try playing some March Madness-inspired games? You can set up a basketball hoop and have a free throw contest or organize a three-point shooting competition. These are great ways to get everyone involved in the action and can help to make your party even more memorable.
With these tips, you’ll surely have the most unforgettable March Madness party ever.
March Themed Parties
Now let’s come to the more traditional March themed parties. March is the month of transition from winter to spring, so it’s an excellent time to host a party that reflects the changing seasons. If you’re looking for something a bit more classic, there are plenty of options to choose from.
St. David’s Day
What can be better than throwing a St. David’s day party in march? This Welsh national celebration marks the patron saint of Wales and is celebrated on March 1st every year. Celebrate with dishes like cawl, welsh cakes and bara brith.
Coffee Party (Barista Day)
I know what you might be thinking, coffee party? Yes but with a twist. Think of a barista day party where you can throw an event in honor of Baristas. It is a holiday celebrated on March 1st to honor the art and skill of professional baristas who prepare and serve coffee.
This day is dedicated to recognizing the hard work and dedication of those who make our daily caffeine fix possible. Well I’m not a coffee lover but I did this party for friends and it was amazing. We served some delicious coffee-based beverages along with other snacks and desserts.
You can setup something like a Starbucks-insprired area with mugs and coffee beans around the room.
It is not march without the Mardi Gras party. That is why it also has to be part of your march birthday celebration. Get ready for an evening of fun and revelry with a Mardi Gras themed party. Decorate the space with brightly colored beads, streamers, masks, and costumes.
Serve traditional New Orleans dishes like gumbo and jambalaya and sweet treats like king cake and beignets. Add a few games for entertainment purposes and you have a perfect Mardi Gras celebration.
World Wildlife Day
Animals are an essential part of our ecosystem and World Wildlife Day is the perfect opportunity to recognize this. Celebrate this special day with a wildlife themed party where you can enjoy nature-inspired decorations, music and activities.
But I would say the best way to celebrate this day is to visit the zoo and spend time with the animals. And if you are in Africa why not go on a safari and explore the wildlife. This is one of my wishes on my bucket list. Hopefully I will be able to fulfill it soon.
International Women’s Day
8 march is the day when the whole world celebrates womanhood. Women’s day is the perfect occasion to honor and celebrate the women in your life. The best way to celebrate this day is to honor the amazing women in your life. Gather with friends and family and make a special toast to all the extraordinary ladies in your life.
Celebrate their courage, strength and determination as they break barriers and move mountains. You can also organize a volunteer activity such as donating clothes or money to those in need or helping at a women’s shelter or health center.
The Ides of March
Julius Caesar’s bloody assassination on March 15, 44 B.C., forever marked March 15 as a day of infamy. Most people consider this day a warning to be aware of potential danger and betrayal. But thanks to William Shakespeare‘s play, “Julius Caesar,” it’s also known as a day of celebration.
The Ides of March is the perfect opportunity to celebrate with a themed party complete with Roman attire, decorations and snacks. This day is an excuse to dress up in ancient Roman garb and enjoy delicious food and drinks.
St Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s is celebrated on March 17th yearly and is a traditional Irish holiday. It’s a day when people celebrate Irish culture and heritage worldwide with parades, parties, and much more. You can wear a green costume, serve traditional Irish fare, and have plenty of decorations. And don’t forget the beer.
You can even have a mini pub where guests can have a pint of Guinness and some traditional Irish beverages. This is a fantastic way to make the most of St Patrick’s Day celebrations.

Outdoor March Theme Ideas
These party ideas are especially great for outdoor parties. If you are like me and are fond of outdoor activities, this is the perfect way to celebrate March.
Take advantage of the warm weather and throw a garden party. Decorate with colorful flowers and fresh spring produce, and have guests enjoy outdoor activities like croquet or badminton.
If you want to take it up a notch, add lawn games like cornhole or bocce ball. And if you’re looking to really wow your guests, rent out a small park pavilion or even host your event at a botanical garden.
There’s nothing quite like going into nature for fresh air and exercise. Depending on where you live, there may be several nearby parks or trails that you can explore together as a group. If you’re lucky enough to live near a beach or lakefront area, that could be another great option for outdoor fun.
Just don’t forget your sunscreen. You could also organize an outdoor scavenger hunt if you want something more interactive; hide small prizes around your backyard and give each guest a list of items they need to find within a certain time.
That’s All Folks
The main thing is to have fun and explore the season in new and creative ways. It does not matter what time of the year it is. You can still enjoy your version of a March themed party.
