What are some good themes for a 30th birthday party?

What better way to celebrate your 30th than with a themed party? And if you choose a good theme, your friends will get into it and have some fun too. Here are a few 30th birthday ideas to inspire you:

The Casino Night

Serve cocktails such as cosmopolitans or martinis, and have your guests wear suits and fancy dresses with heels. Have at least one table set up with casino games, such as blackjack, poker or other card games.

The Fancy Dress Party

All your guests come dressed in their best outfits and parade around the party as their favourite celebrity or famous person. Just think of all the fun you'll have passing yourself off as an old Hollywood star like Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe.

When planning your fancy dress party make sure everyone knows what the theme is and make sure your guests bring something to wear to match the theme. Your guests can even provide you with a few costume ideas if you ask them beforehand and maybe give out prices depending on how good they look!

The '80s Party

If your friends love music, clothes and movies from the '80s then this will be a great theme to choose for your 30th birthday. It's an easy enough theme to plan, and if you don't want to go overboard with your decorations, a few streamers and balloons in the colours of your party's theme are enough to get the job done. Make some "'80s cocktails" such as a cherry cola or add some colourful swizzle sticks to standard drinks like a vodka tonic. And don't forget to ask your guests to come dressed in '80s clothing!
