You probably are scared of the thirties because you assume you’ve lost your youthfulness. That’s not the case. Hitting 30 is a significant milestone that deserves a huge celebration. You should take this time to reminisce about your past life and what you want to achieve in this next phase of maturity. You don’t want to go with the ‘meet me at the bar’ theme. Make it more fun, more interesting, more party themed. After all, it’s been thirty long years!
What matters most is your preference, your enjoyment. Don’t be compelled to do something big, just to please others. It’s your day. Remember, you need to think of budget, schedule, the number of people to invite, etc. Enjoy your day with some elegance and finesse, and say bye to being raucous. It’s about being more classy and less colorful. To help you decide, we’ve summed up ways to celebrate your 30th Birthday in style.
A SPA treat
You deserve a spa treatment. Enjoy some luxurious and intimate time at an in-house spa or a Korean spa. If you need company, pick a few friends and pamper yourself with massages, manicure, pedicure, and peaceful relaxation.
Throw a bash
Parties are a great way to let go and live the moment. Choose an exciting party theme that may influence dress code, decor, design of the invitations, food, etc. For example, a 90s throwback party is a fun way to celebrate the decade. Or, you could go with a more modern theme, like the Met Gala. Spice things up through the use of candles, flowers, customized vintage balloons, cookies, and of course, a symbolic cake. Set some good music in the background. Consider hiring a DJ.
In the company of friends, use this time to watch a classic film, or relive memories. Up the fun by playing board games, or go old-school with games like Monopoly and Twister. You can also role-play your favorite movie characters, have a slumber party, play dress up, eat food, tarot reading, meditation, etc. Remember to have enough snacks beforehand.
Book into a hotel
If you have a busy schedule, set some alone time. A great way to approach this is by booking into a hotel, even if it’s just nearby. Come on, who wouldn’t like some room service, champagne, and poolside relaxation?
It is an opportunity for you to spoil yourself sick. Go shopping,
Participate in a race
You’ll need to prepare yourself in advance for maybe a marathon, half marathon, or a charity race. Achieving such a goal will inspire you. It’s good for your body and soul.
Hire a chauffeur, and together with some friends, visit an urban winery. Most of them have great menus too, or you could enjoy the wine with some cheese.
Take it to the next level by glamming up, either by hiring professionals or a stylist. Having a photoshoot is a fantastic way to commemorate this big day. Dress up to look the part. Have a photographer take beautiful images of you. Alternatively, bring a photo booth, or take some good selfies.
Tea parties are synonymous with the UK, but you can bring that classy feel on your Birthday. Celebrate your tea party at a luxury hotel or home. Serve tea with sandwiches, sweets, etc. Don’t forget the hats.
Go on a road trip
Not the Bonnie and Clyde type of road trip, just a two-hour drive from your place is good enough. Change of scenery helps refreshen things. Visit new shops, restaurants, museums, or whatever the town has to offer.
There are other ways to celebrate your 30th Birthday through outdoor activities. Why not spend the day outside enjoying mother nature through some physical activities. Consider hiking, mountain biking, bowling, group dancing, rock climbing, camping, in-house skydiving, tug of war, and such activities.
Who doesn’t like barbecue? Lounge at your garden, park, or beach with friends and family. Serve yourself some grilled food with drinks.
Plan for a karaoke night at the bar, or rent the machine and host it at your home. Make it a little bit competitive by having a prize for the winner.
Take a trip
If you’ve been dreaming about taking an international trip to beautiful places, this is perfect. Visit the pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, the Taj Mahal; you name it. The list is endless.
If you aren’t into explosive parties, dinners can do. Share this moment with close ones. Book a spot at a restaurant and enjoy the ambiance, with some fresh jazz music. All you have to do is show up. Alternatively, you can have dinner at your place. Hire a chef, and let the caterers take care of everything. Don’t forget the cake.

It will be quite symbolic since it marks a change in your life as well. Do little touches here and there, hairstyle, etc.
Horse riding is an adventurous way to spend your special day. It’s calming and relaxing.
Go to the Beach
The ocean has a lot to offer. You can have a beach party, or go there to relax.
