I need suggestions for celebrating my wife's 30th birthday. We live in a new city with no one to watch our kids (4yrs and 6 mos) so they will have to be included in the activities. Her birthday is June 18. Thanks!

On her birthday, give her a card w/the following itinerary: load up the kids and the birthday girl on Saturday, the 19th, take Mom to a local spa for a manicure/pedicure while you and the kids hit the nearest playground. Then pick her up and go to a kid-friendly restaurant for lunch. Then, with the kids "played out" and fed - off to a nap for them and some "adult time" for you and your girl!
I am having a 30th birthday party for my daughter. She owns 2 dance studios and loves purple. I am trying to find nice eco friendly seeded invites. Any ideas for invites and decorations?
There is a wedding website that has Plantable Card Favors. You may be able to reword them into birthday invites. I wasn't sure what you ment by eco-frendly seeded invites. Go to www.theknot.com and search Plantable Card Favors or go to http://weddingshop.theknot.com/plantable-card-favors.aspx?MsdVisit=1
My son's 30th birthday is in April. He played college football and coaches track and field now. I am looking for party ideas.

Mine was a few years ago and it was a blast. We had a John Hughes theme party, with everyone dressing up as characters from the different movies. Of course, the whole night had an 80's theme to go with it. We had 1980's trivia (thank you trivial pursuit), with timely music blaring from old boom boxes and movies playing in the background. I was the donger and my bf was Jake Ryan. We had several benders and ionas, and even a john candy security guard from vacation. Probably the best costume party I've ever had! Since the costumes are relatively easy, everyone was excited to come up with something. Now they ask me to throw a theme party for my birthday every year.
Some other things I've done since:
Mafia madness (mobsters and dolls from any era)
Fingerpainting (yes, for adults. it's hilarious!)
Miniature sports (go-karts, mini golfing, foosball)
My boyfriend is turning 30 in December. I'm having trouble figuring out party ideas. He's really into video games and zombies. If I have a zombie party at a hall can I invite his family members? I also want to try and keep the cost low, but am beginning to feel like this is impossible for Long Island.
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!
My boyfriend's 30th birthday is in January. He is the most genuine, sweetest person, always ready to help out anyone. He deserves a great party and at times has hinted he wants a party with all his friends and family (100+). I need help in how to achieve all this with a small budget.
My house will not accommodate everyone one so I am considering renting the local Legion Hall, but how can I make it extra special? Any thoughts or ideas will greatly help. He is into cars, not a sports guy, and just likes having a good time. Thanks

Here in Salem OR, we have a shop called Craft World. There, you can get a card that says what everything was the year he was born...price of food, gas, fashions, tv, politics, fads...etc. It's fun to look back. Also, you can gather shots of him growing up, have it scanned to a cd and play it on the computer, as a slideshow. If you want, narrate each photo, or have others do some like his friends, family.
If he loves cars, you can make the theme be that and have everyone help decorate with hubcaps, horns, tires, and all things cars. Have fun, and he will too. Good luck!
PS: If you google "fake newspapers" you can find lots of companies who will make a news paper the day he was born, with stories of his life and the times/place where he was born.
My husband is turning 30 in a few months and I would like to throw him a party. He is into guns and computers, any creative ideas?
My husband is turning 30 and we are new in our city. We don't have too many friends here. How can I make his day special?

When my then-husband turned 40, I secretly made a big sign (4 feet by 3 feet) "Honk and wave. I'm 40 today!" and taped it to the back of his van. He drove all over the town that day with people honking and waving and grinning. He had no idea until he got home and walked around the back the of the van and saw the sign.
