Turning 30 is the best time to throw a party. It’s a bittersweet occasion. On one hand, it’s the end of your exciting, carefree 20s, on the other hand, you will now be a treated with more respect as a more matured and wiser person. It’s a brand new chapter in your life. Your 30th birthday celebrations should be creative, exciting and filled with your near and dear ones to celebrate with.
When it comes to organizing the party, you should think about selecting a theme for the celebrations. Choose from a theme which you can then incorporate into your decor, your invitations, your drinks for the day and your eats. Whether it’s a small party with your closest friends or if you are making it big and celebrating the day with a lot more people in maybe your backyard or a hall, there are a few ideas for themes you can base your celebrations on.
1. The 80s or 90s Flashback party
For those celebrating their birthday this year, you would have been born in the 80s. You might have close friends who are around the same age, so why not have the 80s or 90s Flashback party to bring back memories of those good old days. Encourage your guests to wear attire inspired by the 80s/90s. Don’t forget the music. Make a playlist of your favorite golden oldies, the number 1’s or the decade. Your guests will definitely go back down memory lane listening to those tunes. You can also order an 80s themed cake, like the image below. It will surely get a lot of youtube hits. 🙂
2. Vegas Theme
Recreate Las Vegas in your home with a Vegas Theme birthday party. It will be an exciting and entertaining party to host. You can go all out with vegas inspired decor, serve some exotic cocktails, have some casino games like roulette and dish out some themed eats too. You could serve eats like cupcakes in the form of dices, some spade or heart-shaped cookies. Keeping the color theme to red and black will give you a lot of options to play with as in the image below. The guests can also be told to come in a red and black Vegas-inspired attire.
3. Great Gatsby Birthday Theme
If you adore the extravagance of the 1920s then why not think about organizing a 1920s inspired Great Gatsby birthday party to celebrate your big milestone. Ask your guests to wear their best pearls, dresses and for the men not to forget their top hats. You can also think about setting up a photo booth with the 1920s inspired props. It’s usually a Golden-Black colored theme, so decorate the place with a lot of feathers, balloons to match the theme, and don’t forget the pearls. You can even get in a barman to serve up some golden inspired cocktails.
4. Superheroes theme
Even superheroes turn 30. If you are into comics like the cast from Big Bang Theory, you should think of having a superhero’s themed 30th bash. Ask all your guests to dress up in their favorite comic character. As for decor, you can easily get decor for this theme and set the place up with your favorite superheroes.
5. Pink Theme
Celebrate your milestone birthday with a pink theme (if you are a female). Besides your attire being pink, you can incorporate the pink theme in your decor, your invitations, your drinks, your eatables and top it off with a lovely pink cake. Keep it classy and don’t go overboard with the pink though. Popular Pink Birthday theme ideas include pink lemonade, a pink candy bar, pink cocktails, and gold accents
6. Sleepover party
You are never too old for a sleepover party. If you want to have a low key affair and celebrate with just your closest friends then you can think about this option. It will give you a perfect excuse to treat yourself to a pair of cute new pajamas and some comfy yet stylish slippers. Order in a few pizzas and drinks (beer ice-cream floats), watch a lovely rom-com movie with your girlies and make a night of it. Time for some truth and dare?
