Boyfriend's 30th Birthday Party

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

If he is such a sweet guy then his friends ought to be willing to help out. You rent the hall and ask for everyone else to bring the food, whether it be a full scale meal or just finger foods. If you can get 50 people to bring enough to feed 100 that would take care of food then call on others to help with the decorating.

You can always ask friends and family to pitch in. Try setting a menu and asking for volunteers to help with food, refreshments, and decorations. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

See what his close friends think would make the evening special. As long as he is surrounded by the people he loves it will be great. Good Luck! Susan Dallas, TX

Three keys to a great party: a) food, b) music - happy and danceable, c) a mix of people who can talk and are reasonably sociable. The shy ones should be in the minority.

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.
