Turning thirty is actually the same as standing at a big crossroads. You bid farewell to the years that started with the second digit, and with it, all the endless night spent partying and getting drunk. Now you stand in front of three streets – the first one being the calm street that will help you achieve true happiness and calmness, the second one which you will choose if you still want to party and think that the thirties are the new twenties, and the third one – which is a mixture of these two. But regardless of the path that you choose, one thing is for certain: turning 30 is a big deal. This is why you simply have to throw an amazing party to celebrate your thirties, the years that you will spend doing exactly what you love. But how to throw a party that everyone will remember? Take a look.

Choose a theme

The theme for the parties during your twenties was probably “Drink till you drop”, but this time you might want to opt for something much more original. Of course, the options here are endless – you can choose to throw a masquerade ball, or simply a regular party with a certain dress code. Whatever you choose will be good, but make sure to do something unique and interesting. You will want to remember this night for the rest of your life, and this is how you will take interesting and great photos.

The venue issue

Next up, think about the venue where you will have your party. If you want to invite a lot of people, then you will have to book a cafe or a small pub or simply host it in your garden or your house. But if you’re planning to invite only the most important people in your life (which is an amazing idea), you can think outside of the box and visit one of the many RnB clubs in Sydney or find a good club in the place where you live. On the other hand, you can also book tickets for Sydney for your 30th birthday party – now that is called style.

What to eat and drink

If you’re throwing a party yourself, know that the organization might be a bit challenging, as you have to think about many things. Apart from the venue, the most important task would be to find a good catering service and order some finger food, unless you have time and want to make the buffet yourself, of course. And most importantly, think about the bar. Yes, people will come because of the drinks, so make sure to know what your guests are drinking. If you want to play it safe, make it a cocktail night and serve cocktails only. This will also save you some extra money on different types of drinks that you would otherwise buy (such as beer or wine – who drinks beer or wine in cocktails?)

Think about the activities

And finally, once you have all the important parts done, think about the activities. What will you be doing there? The music playlist should be your biggest concern, as this can either make or break your night. Choosing the biggest hits of the moment is always a good idea, but the safest and most interesting choice would be to dance it out to the most popular songs of the 2000s. Who wouldn’t like to dance to Nelly feat. Kelly’s Dilemma? After all, if you are turning thirty, then it means that you were a teenager when these songs were popular, which makes it all the more interesting to play them.

Throwing your 30th party might be expensive, but it can also be cheap – everything depends on the details. But no matter what you choose, choose to celebrate it. It is an important number, and you will have to wait 10 more years for the next jubilee. May you have an amazing one!
