Throw your friend or family member a great 30th birthday party
July 26, 2010
Turning 30 can be a big milestone for some people. A lot of people set that as a benchmark to see what they have accomplished, and at the same time it signifies to some people that they have finally made the transition to being a full-fledged adult. While some think turning 30 means having to give up fun, carefree activities, that does not have to be the case. Throw a fantastic 30th birthday party for a friend or family member and it will be sure to prove that they can still celebrate like they did when they were 22.
The first order of business when it comes to planning any birthday party is to send out enticing invitations. There are several directions you can take when picking out announcements, but a good place to start would be to use ones with bright colors, that also have the number 30 on them. If you feel that this can come off as somewhat garish, feel free to tone things down by sending out invites that are colored with more subtle hues, which can can look just as pleasing.
Much like with invitations, there's a wide array of options at your disposal for birthday party decorations. Since you're throwing a shindig for an adult, the decorations should reflect a more mature atmosphere, but at the same time not be too drab. A good place to start would be to have a blue metallic fringed table skirt to add a nice accent to a room. Paying homage to the guest of honor with a personalized banner would also be a great idea. Along with a heartfelt happy birthday message, you can provide pens for them to write their own specific note on the banner. For a final touch, consider spreading confetti in the shape of the number 30 on each table. Finding these small reminders throughout the house is the perfect way to add an understated layer to the decorations.
The success of any bash hinges on many things, including extra supplies that will make it stand out. Some supplies that are a necessity are plates, napkins cups and plasticware. A good idea would be to use ones that all match each other. Using plates that feature the phrase "what's one more candle?" could be a good way to make the guest of honor happier if they feel like they're getting too old. Balloons just aren't for children's parties, either. Filling up some appropriately-themed balloons and having them float around the area is a terrific idea, regardless of age. Happy birthday glasses that have frames shaped like birthday cake are a nice final addition that can put a smile on the face of whoever is wearing them.
As people get older, birthdays tend to get less important. Change the tide and host a get-together that will remind people that birthday parties are for evertyone.
