Sorry I don't have a party idea, short of a scavenger hunt, this is a extra special birthday. I would contact your local newspaper. Bet they would want to do a story on her with the 10-10-10, not many around with that day.

I think turning 10 on 10-10-10 is more like a platinum birthday! How special for her! When my husband turned 29 on the 29th, I got him things and decorated in increments of 29. He loves jelly bellies, so he got 2.9 pounds, 29 socks, I blew up 29 balloons (while 8 months pregnant), etc. I like the idea of a scavenger hunt, maybe tying in pictures or memories of her ten years (or past birthdays), perhaps with 10 places around the house (or the town) with 10 small gifts.


Ten is such a great age to have a golden birthday, she'll be old enough to appreciate and remember it and still think it's fun.

My daughter's birthday is also 10/10/10, not golden (which would be totally cool!). We are doing a nail salon, 10 fingers, 10 toes, 10 girls, 10:00 party, chicken TENders. :) We also thought about sleeping in TENts if not to TENse for the momma.

My daughter will also be 10 on 10-10-10!! We are taking a group of girls to a hotel for an over night and I am looking for some fun games/ideas. They'll be busy swimming, and we'll have pizzas, but I have nothing else planned yet!

My son also turns 10 years old on 10-10-10. We planned a party at pizza hut with his 10 best friends, and we are having a karaoki party. We have judges and all. Very reasonable.

My son will also be 10 on 10-10-10. It's such a cool birthday! I just had to post bc i am so excited to see these. I love the tents idea. We are also planning 10 friends, but 10, 10 year old boys, eek! We are going to go to a japanese steakhouse for $6.95 A boy and that's not bad for dinner for 10. Then we may just have to tent it up in our backyard! Thanks for the suggestions! P.S. Bowling is 10 pins.

My youngest son also is celebrating his 10th birthday on 10-10-10! He thinks it's so awesome to have all the 10's for his birthday this year.

Actually your age being the same as the year you're born is called your Platinum birthday. So look online for platinum bday ideals.
And happiest of birthdays!

My little girl will be turning 2 in October and it is also her golden birthday. I would really like to go all out for her birthday but have no clue what theme I should go with. I tossed around the idea of everything being gold from the table cloth to the cake but I'm not sure if that is for a two year old.

She also has a lot of cousins anywhere from ages 9 months to 17. I would like to have activities for all ages to enjoy. I plan on doing an outdoors birthday because the family is so big and it is tough to fit them all in a house. Any help on this matter would sure be appreciated.

I'm clueless. What is a golden birthday?

Editor's Note: Here's Wikipedia's explanation: "A person's Golden Birthday occurs when they turn the age of their birth day (i.e. when someone born on the 12th of the month turns 12)."

I think the golden birthday is the year in which your age and the date are the same ie turning two on the 2nd. I have also heard it called a penny birthday.

My son's b-day is on Halloween but we don't celebrate Halloween and he loves SpongeBob so we're doing a Luau and Spongebob theme. If you know what characters she likes go with that and incorporate the "gold" in there somehow. Good Luck and Happy partying!

What about a "Bee Happy Birthday". You could do black and yellow decorations (like bumble bees) and write everywhere "Bee Happy for ______________ who is turning two today! I am sure you can find bumble bee decorations everywhere or print off your computer. The birthday child could wear a "bee happy" tshirt and you could get tshirts for the other kids or have the kids decorate their own.


You could do games like a cake walk (but use bumblebee pictures for the children to walk on. Tell the children to fly like bumblebees while you play music and then stop the music and tell them to freeze. Goody bags could include bumble bee soap/stickers/candy. The birthday cake could be a bumble bee and say "Bee Happy for Susie's birthday!

You can rent a hall and host a special golden dance and costume party for your birthday. Make everyone wear a mask and have fun celebrating your birthday like in a New Years Eve party style.

Use a gold theme,like gold balloons.You can have glass center pieces with gold sand with a candle in the middle with white table cothes.Use your imagination.Incorporate whatever your likes are.

You can also look up the significance of the number 22. If you are not into guns (i.e.. 22 calibre pistols), I'm sure that doing a quick google search can help you with some other less militant ideas, such as coming up with a trivia game about all things 22!

For guys, it is still the age where they don't want to be treated like a "baby". Is he getting his license? That's a big deal in it's self. I would have him invite a few of his friends over for music, food and movies.


Get a cake, chips and some soda. Or vise versa with your family. If he doesn't want to do any of that, take him out to a good restaurant and order him dessert.

My son is 19 now. From about ages 7 to 16 we invited as many friends as we could afford to the movie of his choosing, complete with popcorn, beverages and candy. We go later in the evening so they feel like they're staying out late, but they will have already eaten so you don't have to feed them a meal too. We see the movie too but we sit away from them and we can still keep an eye on them.

Only once have I had to get up and go sit behind them to keep them from being disruptive (they were about 12). Enjoy the day too, Mom and Dad. Your boy is growing up! Just don't embarrass him. ;)

Have a tes party! My daughter's birthday is in April and I have been snatching up REAL tea cups I find at thrift stores. These will be the party favors that her friends take home! I bought a REAL teapot and we plan to serve some kind of apple juice or sprite soda mixed with grenadine or something. I have beautiful platters that we will srve "tea sandwiches" and "tea cookies" on. I found some adorable fans at my local craft store that had feathers on them and also some feather boas that the girls can wear.


As an activity, you could have the girls make their own fans or garden tez hats with feathers and flowers and toile! You could also do mini-manicures for the girls or some other "grown up" spa treatment. Anyways, that's what my daughter and I are planning for her birthday... she will be 8, but you can scale back a bit for a group of 4 yr olds! We are sending Daddy and her 5 brothers out for the day! haha Since she is the only girl, we are doing it very "girly"... but you could invite Daddy and Grandpa to be part of the tea party for a 4 yr old! :) GOOD LUCK!

If it's all girls, take them to the nearest beauty school for manicures - it's inexpensive & fun! Then hand out goody bags with lip gloss, brushes, & other beauty items - look at the dollar store or at

A pal from work is taking her daughter & 2 of her friends for a manicure. A less expensive option would be to buy 3 to 5 bottles of nail polish (check the markdowns in RiteAid or Walmart). Have them do each others nails, facials, hair whatever.
Google "Making Fairies in a Jar". Jars, glow sticks & glitter (dollar store or less) Saw this idea last night & it is really cute!
