Some of the most beloved movies of all time made their theatrical debut in September, like Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, and Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. If you’re a film buff, there’s no better time to have a birthday!

Host a movie-watch-a-thon party full of flicks that hit the theater in September. Caramel popcorn would make an awesome autumnal treat to snack on while you watch.

The original Star Trek series first lit up televisions on September 8th, 1966. So if you’ve got a September birthday, why not host a Star Trek-themed party and beam yourself up to the final frontier?

Is September really complete without savoring a pumpkin spice latte or two? We think not. So for your birthday this year, why not host your party at a cafe and savor your favorite fall drink with friends? If you want to celebrate at a place that’s a bit more special than a local Starbucks, a cozy Peerspace coffee shop could give your pumpkin spice party an extra shot of style.

September is home to not one but two special days dedicated to pizza — National Cheese Pizza Day on the 5th and National Pepperoni Pizza Day on the 20th. But who says your birthday has to fall on either day to celebrate the almighty ‘za? 

Host a September pizza party with all the pepperoni or cheese pizza you and your friends can eat. To mix up the menu, try incorporating pizza-like flavors into unexpected dishes, like yummy Pizza fries or pizza grilled cheeses. It’s by far one of our tastiest September birthday party ideas.

There’s something a tad scandalous about eating breakfast for dinner. But if you ask us, it’s society that’s wrong for limiting the hours when it’s socially acceptable to eat pancakes. And since Better Breakfast Day falls on September 26th, you’ve got the perfect excuse to eat breakfast at any hour you choose for your birthday. 

Host a breakfast-for-dinner birthday party and chow down on all of your favorite breakfast selections with your friends. If you don’t feel like cooking yourself, check out Peerspace diners in your area to see what kind of delicious breakfast foods are on the menu.
