Some good ideas for a 30th birthday include a vacation destination party, local day trip or travel-themed party. The 30th birthday is considered a milestone birthday and many people begin to contemplate where they are going as they get older and where have they been, states Punchbowl Magazine. Friends and family can use these ideas to create a memorable birthday party.
Destination parties are great options if the hosts know of a place the birthday person has always wanted to visit. Examples of destinations suitable for birthday groups include New York City or a Caribbean beach.
The 30th birthday party does not need to travel far, but can instead be a local day trip to explore the area, according to Punchbowl. Trips of 1-2 hours away are a fun way for people to explore their own areas and are great for those on a budget or with minimal time. Examples include amusement parks, local restaurants, art museums and zoos.
A more simple 30th birthday party that still uses the idea of travel is one that uses travel-inspired decorations. The hosts can choose one destination, such as Paris, to create the party around. Examples include serving French food, decorating with photos of Paris and playing French music. Alternatively, the theme can be general travel, with a sampling of food from around the world and decorations using old maps and travel brochures.
