My husbands 30th Birthday is coming up and I have no ideas what to do for him. He is military. He usually doesn't want a big deal made of his Birthday except for this one. He wants a big deal made of his 30th Birthday I need ideas and help. Anyone with any suggestions please help me.
Have a parade! A silly fun parade!...
We did this for my boyfriend's 30th birthday and it was a little chaotic, but hilarious and memorable.
To make a parade: get a bunch of your most extroverted friends to dress up in costumes (any kind of costume!) and get some other friends to decorate their cars. You'll also need a loudspeaker to play happy parade music and maybe even a megaphone or two. Your husband can sit in the main "float" (truck) and wave. People in costumes on roller-skates are good, too. The more creative goofy friends you have, the better.
Map out a good route for the birthday parade - neighborhoods with lots of kids are great, or also college areas.
When we did this the city wouldn't give us an official parade permit but said it was fine to have a caravan of slow-moving vehicles as long as everyone drove carefully.
So there's one idea... (02/09/2005)
My husband turned 30 this past year. For his birthday I got all of our friends together. Played his favorite music, ate his favorite foods, and drank his favorite drink (beer in our case). I organized a large poker game. We used nickels, dimes, and pennies (spare change) and we played all night long. Laughed and joked and just down right had a great time.
The point being, think of your husband's favorites and give him all of those in mass quantity. He'll love it!
Good Luck! (02/09/2005)
My husband doesn't care for parties either, especially receiving gifts that he doesn't need. So, I had a surprise party for his 30th. For gifts I had everyone bring him something that he could always use. We received a lot of socks and toilet paper, but you could request other things like shaving cream, razor blades, favorite pop or snack, etc. The guests had a lot of fun watching him open his gifts and he still has a ton of socks. I don't have to buy any for awhile yet. Good luck! (02/09/2005)
