I’ll be turning 30 in about a week and there’s a lot of pressure to throw a big birthday bash. I’m sure there are a lot of readers out there who have this same conundrum so I’ve decided to share some of my favorite 30th birthday costume party themes with you! Feel free to try one of these for your “dirty 30” or any birthday for that matter!
Mardi Gras Party
As an Aquarius baby, my birthday is very close to Mardi Gras season which puts ideas in a girls head. Hosting a Mardi Gras themed party is a great way to get down and dirty for your big 30! Hurricanes, pina coladas, and sazeracs, throw in a few beads and masquerade masks and you’ve got yourself a party! As a fan of soups, stews, and seafood, it would be a great excuse to eat some of my favorite foods. If you want to get real authentic with it, you can even have a crawfish boil. There are a few websites like Louisiana Crawfish Company where you can purchase crawfish in bulk. They ship it next day so it’s live and fresh when it gets there and they even offer Saturday delivery!
1920s Gatsby Party
If you prefer to celebrate with a little glitz and glamour, I recommend a 1920s speakeasy party. You can serve up some fancy cocktails and swing to some old jazz music. Have the dames put on their best flapper dress and the fellas can go dapper with their best suit.
Western Saloon Party
Rewind the clock from the 1920s and go for a Wild West saloon themed party. Think Old West gambling hall and whiskey served straight up. You can host a poker tournament and keep the drinks flowing. If you want to go all out, you can even hire at-home companies who will bring casino gaming tables to your home.
Alice in Wonderland Party
How about a bit of madness? You can celebrate in wonderland with an Alice in Wonderland themed party. This would be a great for a garden setting with whimsical decorations and a game of croquet. If it’s warm, you can serve a variety of spiked iced teas if that’s your sort of thing. Have a traditional style tea party spread with a few modernized touches. Try different sandwich recipes like chicken artichoke or curried egg salad.
Which of these party themes would you use for your next celebration?
