If you are turning 30, know that social media is filled with countless funny and festive ways to mark the occasion. Your friends will want to celebrate this milestone birthday with you. Here are eight great ideas for celebrating your 30th birthday with those people who love you most.
1. Host a Brunch
If you love to eat, brunch is a great way to celebrate with family and friends. Put together a menu of dishes that you have always enjoyed eating and invite over your contemporaries who will be joining you for fun and food. You’ll be amazed at the number of people who want to join your celebration (they will want to know what it’s like to live with you).
2. Throw a Birthday Barbecue
If winter is not your season, consider hosting a barbecue at your place or inviting friends over for dinner. The first rule of having a barbecue is to do a lot of planning, so you don’t have to spend the entire day cooking burgers, chicken wings, and all other culinary delights you are planning to serve. When the day comes, it’s easy to set up and enjoy.
3. Plan a Tribute Night
If there is someone who means a lot to you, consider giving them a fantastic tribute night. Line up all the people who love that person and tell them something loving about them. Then present them with a surprise gift on their special day.
4. Rent a Party Bike Together
Renting a party bike is a great way to celebrate with friends. These bikes are often rented out for parties, and you can hire one for a group of your friends for a bit of fun and adventure. The bikes can be customized according to the needs of each group, and there are usually parties to follow the bike ride.
5. Go Bowling
Some people might think bowling is dated, but this sport is still trendy in the US and some European countries. If you have fond memories of bowling in the past, why not organize a game night? You may be surprised at how much fun it still is. Even if you don’t want to play, you can always gather friends for a great evening of beer drinking and casual conversations.
6. Host a Pool Party
Having a pool in your backyard means that you can’t always enjoy the pool when family or neighbors are around. But what if you could host a pool party even when people are around? Try renting a sauna and pool table for this occasion. If you want to enjoy the festivities with friends, you can rent out a cabana for the evening too.
7. Have a Backyard Picnic with Friends
If you have a gorgeous backyard, consider throwing a picnic in your backyard. A party like this would not work every year, but on your 30th birthday, it will indeed be spectacular. You can invite friends over for cold beer and delicious food.
8. Try an Escape Room or Scavenger Hunt
Escape rooms are a fun and innovative new way to have some fun with friends. These escape room games are challenging, yet not very difficult, because you can only use your thinking skills. You can rent an escape room from parties in your town or go to a party store and find something entirely new for your birthday. Having strangers around will create exciting situations that will make you laugh, cry and scream with laughter.
30 is a big number. It’s a milestone birthday, but you don’t want to let it get to your head. Celebrate with your friends and family as you should do on any milestone birthday. Make it fun, and remember that this is the first birthday that you will be able to make all the mistakes in life, leaving no scars behind.
