So why let it go blank?
One 30th birthday party crowns one of the best stages and deserves a big celebration. That’s why it’s good to invest in a cool event, bringing friends and family together. Whether for an intimate or grandiose party, check out some cool tips and ideas we’ve prepared for you!
What to serve? ideas and tips
Setting up the 30th birthday party requires good planning. The first thing is to take the time to think about every detail so that everything comes out perfect. So, start organizing as soon as possible, well in advance.
The decoration and food and drink depend on the theme of the celebration. It needs to be all about your personality and tone – if more intimate, for few people; or a huge party, to shake the structures and with many guests.
What you need to consider to make the perfect party:
– if the season is winter/summer;
– if the party will be day/night;
– the environment: countryside/city;
– available budget.
O budget is the first thing to consider, so it’s imperative to get all the details down on paper. If you choose a specialized company, everything will be easier – but more expensive. If you want to do everything for yourself, you can innovate and ask for help from friends and family. From there, think about the environment and what it takes to make it perfect for your 30th birthday party.
Then, just make the guest list – making everything very clear in the invitation, including the theme of the celebration so that everyone gets in the mood. Also ask the person to confirm their presence, to find out the average amount of food and drink for each one; as well as the space, which must accommodate everyone.
And the food, what to serve? Regardless of the chosen tone, snacks and drinks should not be lacking. Everything needs to follow the theme (and the party time), usually with options that everyone likes:
– canapés and jumps (from 5 to 10 types);
– lunch or dinner with starter, main course and dessert;
– varied beverages (drinks, juices, soft drinks, beer);
– cake, of course (on average, one to two slices for each guest).
It’s ideal to have common sense at this time. If it’s a summer party, you won’t be serving heavy food. Otherwise, in a night celebration and on a cold day, it is pointless to bet on refreshing foods.
In addition, good music and attractions are essential for guests to have fun. Invest in a good dance floor and a DJ to play eclectic music that everyone enjoys.
Bet on decoration with photos, testimonial book, photographer to take lots of pictures and videos, dancers, karaoke, magician, swimming pool, among other possible options that have to do with the theme of the 30th birthday party.
