I’m about 13 months away from my big 3-0 Birthday!! My wonderful friend Twila had a 30th Birthday bash with a “Slogan Tshirt” theme. I had a shirt made that said “amazing“!! The evening was fabulous – with a band, snacks, bar, dancing and tons of fun!
I’ve been thinking a lot about having a party in celebration of this milestone also! Initially I thought I wanted a surprise Birthday! I LOVE surprises…I told my husband this,
“I’d LOVE for you to have a Surprise 30th Birthday Party for me!” I exclaimed
“It isn’t a surprise if you know about it!?” was his lame response
“Well, you have over a year to plan it – so it will be a surprise!” I replied
Then I started to think – maybe I don’t want a surprise. I’m a planner and like to be involved in the details. With Event Coordinator/Planner experience, I’ve become a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to event details! I want to be part of who is invited, etc.
So now, I’m dreaming up what an “ideal” 30th Birthday party looks like to me…
Today I got inspired by a gorgeous wedding that I came across online!! (Thanks to The Farmers Trophy Wife for including one of Bailey’s pics in her Color post). Bailey the bride, has a blog called Peppermint Bliss. There were 3 parts to her wedding and each had their own theme and were decorated extravagantly!! Clearly my wedding budget was much smaller than this gorgeous lady.
Her Welcome Reception was western themed:
The Wedding had a rustic, outdoor feel:
AND my favorite the “Willa Wonka-meets-Alice in Wonderland” inspired After Party with outrageously beautiful colors!!!!
Enjoy checking out their pictures!
Back to planning my bash in my mind…What do you think I should do? Have you ever planned your own Birthday party? What theme would you go with?
