Jimmy Buffett Theme Party

cheeseburgers in paradise party

Looking for a festive theme to jazz up your next cookout or happy hour?

Need a great idea for a fun adult birthday party?

Two words…Jimmy Buffett! His lyrics dictate the perfect adult party. A Pirate looks at 40 would be a great theme for a 40th birthday or how about Cheeseburgers in Paradise for a summer get together? You could even host a Margaritaville Happy Hour!

Invitations – so many clever and inexpensive options!

  • Print the party details on colorful paper, use scissors to “fringe” the edges and add flip flop foam stickers.
  • Hand deliver Dollar Store flip flops with the party details attached.
  • Tuck a pirate’s eye patch in the envelope for A Pirate looks at 40 Party.
  • Take a trip to the Dollar Store and look for an inexpensive trinket to include with your invitation. They’ve been known to have $1 margarita glasses that would be fun to hand deliver with the invitation tucked inside.


  • Cheeseburgers in Paradise with a fixins bar (ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions and jalapeños)
  • French Fried Potatoes
  • Key Lime Pie or Key Lime Cookies

Drinks – remember, it’s 5:00 somewhere!

  • Margaritas
  • Beer iced down in a large galvanized tub

Music – do you even need to ask?

Decorations – start by looking around your house for anything tropical or be achy. Don’t forget to grab a few stands of colorful Christmas lights to hang on your party patio! If you live near a beach, take advantage of this ideal free party setting.

Party Favors – Splurge on these Parrothead hats…they’ll be a great conversation starter and a great party favor!If your theme is A Pirate Looks at 40, eye patches are a must!
