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 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.
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)
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 is turning 30. I have never thrown him a party before, I want to throw him a big party. He loves country music and we live in the country, but not sure what to do. I know we will have lots of beer and music, but not sure what other cool things I can arrange for us to do. Any advice?

My wife is turning 30 in june and I have no idea what to do for it. I thought about having a party at our house, but that is just blah. Any ideas would be helpful. She loves the ocean and looking for something that all her friends and family can be a part of.

It is nearing that time of year where I will be 30. (August 21st) I am hearing from a lot of people that it is normal to have that BIG birthday bash for this 30th year! I want to go all out, but so far everything I have checked really has been completely out of budget.
I looked at those inflatable games, renting a cabin at one of the nicest campgrounds in the area, renting a yacht or even just taking a dinner cruise on it - that is 17.94 per person and for over 50 guests... ouch. I just want something besides the basics to make it memorable - any ideas?

If they are into baseball, football, etc. why not have a family & friends game at a local park? Pay for the hamburgers/hot dogs and drinks and ask guests to bring the side dishes and desserts.
If the person is a movie buff, hold a screening night where you play their favorite movie(s) and ask guests to dress up like the characters. Maybe play charades with clues that match up to their favorite films, actors, lines from movies, etc.
For my 40th birthday, I wanted to celebrate but not get gifts so I had a "My Favorite Things" party themed around my favorite movie (Sound of Music). We bought gifts of things I enjoy and wrapped them. Each of my guests filled out a questionaire about their favorite things and then we all tried to guess who it was. We then played a game where each person received one of my gifts (wrapped up) and a card from me thanking them for sharing special moments in my life and for being some of my favorite people to hang out with and share my common interests. I also spent some money to have my favorite food there (Italian) but that was my husband's gift to me instead of a present. I asked my friends not to bring gifts but to bring their favorite dessert and we spent the rest of the night playing cards, eating food and laughing.
These are just some ideas of fun, inexpensive ways to celebrate a birthday that would show you thought about the person and what they would enjoy. (07/25/2007)
My boyfriend is turning 30 in September. I have no idea what to do. He isn't really into parties so that makes it even harder. It would just be a few friends and family.
My son will be turning 30 in March. He lives in Chicago with his girlfriend and is a chef. They will be visiting us in Florida for his birthday. I want to do something really special at home with family. Any suggestions?
My wife is turning 30 this February and I would love to plan a party for her. She is a mother of two, works as a RN and enjoys life and me, most of the time.
