Milestone birthdays are the ones that mark the big 30th, 40th, 50th and so on. It is a time where even those who don’t often throw birthday parties indulge in a little celebration to mark the significance of the date. Milestone birthdays tend to be big, elaborate parties that everyone loves to participate in. Is your big day just around the corner? In today’s article, we have a look at how you can plan an iconic milestone birthday party, so read on to find out more!
Take The Party Outside
Whether you’re turning 30, 40, 50 or even 70, nothing beats an outdoor birthday party. Outdoor birthday parties aren’t just for children - in fact, a soiree under the sun or moonlight is one of the most iconic things you could do to celebrate your big day. Why not hire a marquee from Marquee Monkeys, set some lights up, hire a photobooth and really make the day one that people will never forget? Whatever the case, an outdoor birthday party is an amazing idea for anyone looking to host a unique birthday unlike any other.
Go Crazy With Cake
Milestone birthdays are an opportunity to really spoil yourself and go all out. This is why we recommend going crazy with your birthday cake. Say goodbye to the regular old supermarket mud cake and hello to artisanal, handcrafted cakes made by expert pastry chefs. Why not go all out with a three-tiered cake? Or perhaps a fondant covered cake that emulates your favourite handbag? The possibilities are endless. Head down to your local pastry shop and discuss options with the pastry chef - a unique and memorable cake awaits you!
How About A Day Trip?
Parties don’t always have to be the usual get together in a backyard or indoor venue. In fact, making a day trip of a birthday party is becoming more and more popular with people of all ages. Why not take a day trip to your favourite winery with friends and family? Or perhaps drive a couple of hours to a spa or resort where everyone can pamper themselves for the day? Day trips are a fantastic option for those who are looking for an out of the box milestone celebration. Do take note that you should contact your winery or spa beforehand to ensure that they can accommodate a large group.
Host A Swanky Dinner
Who doesn’t love dressing up in formal attire, sipping on champagne and enjoying a swanky dinner? This is an option that many who are celebrating a 50th birthday would enjoy (although we highly recommend it for those turning 30 and 40 as well). Nothing exudes elegance and poise more than a black-tie event - invite all your friends, colleagues and loved ones and give them the opportunity to whip their fancy suits and dresses out for your special day. Pair the event with some world-class food and drink and you’ve got a recipe for ultimate birthday success!
Don’t Forget The Favours
Last but not least, no milestone birthday is complete without some personalised favours that guests can take home to enjoy. Whether these come in the form of scented candles, cookies, chocolate or the ubiquitous personalised teaspoons, including a favour that guests can take home is a great idea that will keep your party in everyone’s memory for years to come. You can head to amazing websites such as Etsy where artists craft some of the most incredible personalised gifts that you’ve ever laid eyes on.
There you have it - some amazing ways in which you can host the most iconic milestone birthday ever. With a little thought and effort, you’ll be throwing a party that remains the talk of the town for years to come.
