30th birthday ideas on a budget

30th birthdaySo, its your 30th birthday but you are a bit short on cash. Don’t let that stop you having an awesome thirtieth birthday party!

You could all meet up at a restaurant and have a meal. There are plenty of great venues out there that are happy to split bills. This can be quite a cost effective way of celebrating your 30th without huge costs.

You could have the party at your house, such as a BBQ with BYO drinks. A couple of kilos worth of sausages will fill up your guests without breaking the bank. Plus by making the invites “bring your own” drinks you will save a fortune on alcohol.

Another fun 30th birthday party idea is a “scavenger hunt”. You could have a pub crawl in your area and all of your guests have a list of items that have to be collected through the night. The list could include whatever you choose, such as business cards, beer coasters or takeaway menus from venues on the walk. Each item could be worth a certain amount of points that can be added up towards the end of the night.

There are plenty of great party ideas that could really cut costs.

Alphabet letter themed 30th birthday party

Want something a bit different to celebrate your 30th birthday? Why not try picking a letter of the alphabet and your guests have to come up with a costume for that letter!

These parties can be a lot of fun as some guest will try very hard to out-do everyone else with a totally original costume.

Alphabet themed 30th birthday partyYou could send out your invitations with a “Sesame Street” type theme with the wording. “This birthday party was brought to you by the letter S”.

There are thousands of great costume ideas you could come up with for almost all of the letters of the alphabet. Some guests will come as a job title for that letter such as a school teacher. Others may choose to come as a celebrity such as Sylvester Stallone. Google can be quite helpful for guests that are struggling to come up with a costume!

Some guest may also choose to dress as objects starting with the chosen letter such as a Sausage or a Sign post. They are only limited by their own imaginations.

This style of party can be perfect for the dreaded 30th birthday as everyone comes dressed up, which can take the focus off your birthday and allow you to enjoy the party!
