How to Make Koozies

By: James Kilmer

Some people say that every birthday they have is a good one. Their reasoning is that as long as they keep having birthdays, they keep on living. Birthday celebrations are very important in order to focus on the person who is turning another year older. You can use koozies to make their day in the sun a little brighter.

If you are sure no one else has thought of ordering koozies for the birthday party, you might want to do it. You can order them as a surprise for everyone, including the person with the birthday.

Just have "Happy Birthday" or some funny phrase printed on the koozie. Then have the person's name and birthday. If they are sensitive about their age, leave off the year. When you get the koozies, set them back to bring to the party. Everyone will be delighted.

For your own birthday party, you might want to order koozies for party favors yourself. That way everyone can have something to remember your birthday party. It does not take a lot of work or expense to order them, either.

You can do party games using the koozies. Get the koozies in two different colors. You should be able to order them this way for a very nominal fee. Then, give arriving guests alternating colors of koozies.

When it comes time for the party games, you have already formed two teams. Each team would have a different color of koozies. You can play charades, Pictionary, or any other team party game you want to play.

Special koozies are good for special birthdays. People who are turning 21 could have a koozie that said something about the fact that they are an adult now. It would probably go over best if it was humorous.

Over-the-hill parties are usually given for either the fortieth or fiftieth birthday. You can have black koozies for these events. Play around and put a grim reaper on the koozie. You could also use a slanted hill with a hiker about to fall over the edge. You could put a tombstone with the letters R.I.P. on it. Then, you could put their name above and their birth date to their present birthday below.

People who have reached great ages deserve great koozies. For a hundredth birthday party, you could make up koozies for everyone with the person's name and the person's birthday. Then, you could put something like "100 Years Going Strong". Since most hundredth birthday parties are almost like family reunions, have plenty of koozies.

At the other end of the spectrum, you may have a party for a new member of your family. It would be literally for their birth day, even if you waited until the baby was taken home from the hospital. Of course, the baby cannot use a koozie, but everyone else can. You can also save some koozies back to give your child when s/he grows up. That would be very special.

Using koozies for birthday parties is a fun way to enjoy the day. They add interest and enjoyment to the celebration. They also provide a keepsake that you can keep for years to come.
