5 Events to Host as an Adult That Will Make You Feel Like a Kid Again

Oct 03, 2023 Annie Cao

As a kid, you might have thought to yourself that adults looked so cool and put-together. And maybe you even wished that time would move faster so you could be a grown-up…only to find out that adulthood is pretty different from what you imagined. As your life gets busier with more responsibilities, finding time to enjoy your favorite pastimes becomes a challenge. But who says that fun and games are just for kids?

Don’t get us wrong – being an adult does have its perks! But sometimes we need to revisit our inner child. Here are 5 parties to throw as an adult that might just unlock some core childhood memories.

Sleepovers aren’t just for kids – host an adult sleepover.

Remember the days of going over to your friend’s house and staying up late to talk and hang out? Well, there’s nothing stopping us from doing the same now. If a lunch date never feels like enough time to catch up and reminisce on old memories, try hosting an adult sleepover. This way, you can eat and chat for hours, all in the comfort of your own home and in cozy PJs to boot.

Plus, our Essential Sofa is just as comfortable as a bed – our plush cushioning filled with recycled fibers and nontoxic materials make it the perfect spot to hang out and sleep.

Adults can play dress-up too – have a costume party.

There’s no reason why Halloween costumes only need to be worn once a year – you can have costume parties whenever you want! It’s also a sustainable way to get more wear out of a costume that would’ve been collecting dust in the back of your closet. Pick a theme (or not!) and enjoy bringing out your inner superhero or villain with your favorite people.

Cartoons are even better as an adult – host a movie night.

We said what we said. 💁🏼 Just like rereading books from your childhood, watching animated movies or kids cartoons just hit differently. For example, you might pick up on things that you didn’t notice when you were a kid. Invite a few friends over for movie/cartoon night and reminisce on those good ol’ days when your most important priority used to be waking up early for your favorite shows.

Need plenty of room for blankets and pillows on movie night? Check out our spacious Essential Corner Sectional – available in 5, 6, and 7-seat options. Or add our Expansion Kits to your existing Sabai furniture!

Bring back your competitive side – plan a game night.

Sometimes we get so busy with life that we don’t take the time to relax or rejuvenate ourselves. For some of us, playing games can relieve stress. But why not turn it into a full-on game night with your loved ones? Take out your favorite board games or raise the stakes with a tournament and fun prizes!

Get crafty – have an arts and crafts night.

Getting back in touch with your creative side will definitely take you back to simpler days. It’s also a great way to exercise your imagination outside of your 9-5 and other responsibilities. Set up a wine and paint night if you want a fun activity to do with a side of those adult perks 😉 or gather some craft supplies to make literally whatever you want, just like when you were a kid.

Having a more intimate crafts night? Gather your closest pals around The City Table – available in 3 base colors.
