Turning the big 3-0? Well, that means that you’ve reached the milestone and you’re growing more awesome and becoming wiser obviously! It is no wonder people say that the life starts in your thirties, so embrace this moment and throw the most amazing birthday party ever!
The 80s theme for the awesome 30th b-day
If you are turning thirty it is obvious that you were born in the 80s so the chances are you spent most of your childhood days surrounded by all the awesome stuff from the wonderful neon decade. If you are fascinated with the 80s (I mean, who isn’t?!) there’s no better way to spend your birthday but surrounded by VHS tapes, 80s movies, candy, tech stuff, etc. Gather your friends on the amazing back-to-the-future inspired b-day party and have the time of your life! Don’t forget to take out your old grayscale Nintendo Gameboy, we both know you’ve kept it for all these years!
Pretty in Pink for the ladies
Speaking of the 80s, if you were obsessed with Pretty in Pink well, make your own “remake” of the film for your big 3-0 b-day! This is a great option for the girly girls and rebellious boys that will never ever grow up. Surround yourself with all things pink, birthday cake, pink candy, cocktails, decorative items, etc. Play some good old 80s mixes, and make it a girls night IN! Take out all the pinkish nail polishes, grab a bunch of glitter, flakes, powders, zircons, and stuff and give each other a manicure. Wow, what a blast from the past!
Vegas Casino inspired b-day
Organize a casino birthday party and recreate the shiny Las Vegas casinos, on your own terms. That means cocktails, casino games, lots of shiny lights and the best part: casino inspired colors! Prepare casino finger foods by serving spade or heart-shaped cookies. Make a dice cake and focus on black, white and red colors! Inspire your guests to wear trashy, shiny clothes and celebrate your milestone birthday surrounded by the best for Vegas! Buy a bunch of scratchers for the guest and yourself and place them on the tables. Who knows, maybe you win a jackpot, ding, ding, ding!
Outdoor summer party
If you are lucky and your b-day is in summer, well, take your party outside and throw an amazing outdoor birthday gathering. There is nothing better than an outdoor summer party that starts in the afternoon and continues when the night falls. DIY an outdoor dance floor, hang lots of lights all over the place, set up an improvised outdoor bar or opt for a kombi van hire to make it the best one ever! Well turning thirty is a big step in life so do it with style!
Take the party with you to a music festival
You can also take it up a notch and instead of throwing a birthday party, bring your guests to your favorite band’s concert or a music festival. One thing you won’t have to worry about if opting for a music festival and that is the awesome atmosphere because you will have everything you need out there. Celebrate the big 3-0 like a goofy little teen you actually feel like!
Beer tasting b-day
If you are feeling like a true thirty-year-old you can do something more mature for your birthday like organizing the party at your local brewery and take your guests beer tasting. Just make sure there is a place where you can grab some foods for the tipsy guest or else you will end up with a bunch of hungry, clumsy, loud friends. Or you will be one of them, wink, wink.
Karaoke contest party
Organize an unforgettable karaoke contest party and show your guests how to have a great time! Grab a microphone, raise your glasses and sing your lungs out. It doesn’t really matter if you have a nice voice, it’s all about having fun! Make a random playlist with the best pop songs from the 80s, 90s and 00s and let your voice shine! If your friends are a bit shy, that’s where the adult beverages come in handy – mix up cocktails and create a karaoke bar vibe in your home. Add some neon lights and you’re all set for the night of your life! Just remember to warn your neighbors.
Take inspiration from these unique and original party ideas to throw an unforgettable 30th birthday party! You and all of your friends are certainly never going to forget it!
