The Sims 4 Birthday Party


Learn How to Prepare the Best Birthday Party in The Sims 4!

Hosting the best possible birthday party in The Sims 4 can be challenging. No matter how many Sims you invite, the actual event demands a lot of attention from you. Not to mention that you have to have at least some knowledge in The Sims 4, because otherwise, the birthday party can quickly become a disaster. A birthday cake, friendly Sims, and a nice place to host the event are only parts of what you’re going to need for this, so stick around to know the details.

As with any other event in The Sims 4, the birthday party will have some goals for you to complete. Over the years, these goals have proved problematic for many simmers, maybe even more so than other events. We’re here to walk you through the whole process and teach you everything that you need to know about a b-day in The Sims 4. Let’s begin!

How to Have the Best Birthday Pary in The Sims 4?


The first thing that you want to get right is the actual place where you’re going to host the event. This can be your current home, be that inside or outside of the house. Generally, you want the place to have enough room for your guests, just so you can execute the interactions without a problem. If you don’t think you have the best place for the occasion, you can always download one from the Gallery.

Make sure to place food and refreshments on the table, alongside the birthday cake. The atmosphere should be fun, so games and stuff like that can really boost the room’s energy. A good rule is to always have an instrument lying around, as well as a stereo with music on. The idea here is to prepare the event before it even starts, so the Sims will have tons of activities to keep them engaged.

The Birthday Party

If you’ve ever done an even in The Sims 4, then you the drill. Basically, with every event, you get a set of goals that you need to meet. These change from time to time, and completing one will give you another. Don’t worry, there is a limited number of goals per event, so comfortably do them one by one and not rush things.

Now, the secret to throwing the best birthday party in The Sims 4 is to score the main goal. Make sure you prioritize your main goal over the side goals because that’s what’s ultimately going to decide whether your birthday party was a success or not.

However, you’ll have to consider the additional goals as well if you want to earn the gold medal. Here are a couple of additional goals you’ll need to do if you want to net the golden medal.

  • Have Sims Listen to Music at the Same Time 0/3 – Put down a stereo and dance, after this, you can invite other Sim to dance with you.
  • Have Drinks 0/3 – Make drinks at the bar or hire a Mixologist. Click on glass to have a drink.
  • Have an Adult Make a Toast 0/1 – Get a drink and click on one of the birthday Sim to make a toast.
  • Tell Jokes 0/2 – Click on a Sim to tell jokes.


Successfully throwing a birthday party will reward you with the “Balloons and a Banner” item. This is a decorative item that you can place on walls. It has a couple of color schemes, so it’s a nice addition to your collection.

And don’t worry, you can win this item with a silver medal as well.


Broken down like this, hosting a birthday party in The Sims 4 seems very simple. Just make sure you follow the goals listed on your screen. And be careful about wasting too much time doing stuff that doesn’t has to be done. And that’s all! Go and have the best birthday possible!
