How interesting is it to celebrate a woman's thirtieth birthday?

Each of us, once a year, pre­pares with spe­cial trep­i­da­tion for his birth­day. At any age, it is nice to hear con­grat­u­la­tions addressed to you, receive gifts and be the hero of the occa­sion. In dif­fer­ent nations this sig­nif­i­cant day is cel­e­brat­ed accord­ing to dif­fer­ent tra­di­tions, but the main uni­fy­ing point is that the hol­i­day is most­ly held in the cir­cle of rel­a­tives and close friends.

Features of the holiday

In our coun­try, they solemn­ly began to cel­e­brate their birth­day in the 70s of the last cen­tu­ry. Before that, the cel­e­bra­tion of a name day (the day of remem­brance of a saint whose name was giv­en to a per­son at bap­tism) was more com­mon.

The cel­e­bra­tion con­sists of sev­er­al points. You should start with the prepa­ra­tion of the place of cel­e­bra­tion, the prepa­ra­tion of fes­tive dish­es. A cake must be present as a treat, per­haps even with can­dles. A fes­tive table is served accord­ing to the wish­es of the birth­day girl. The invit­ed guests are met by the hero of the occa­sion. It is cus­tom­ary to con­grat­u­late the hero of the day, to wish health, pros­per­i­ty and all oth­er bless­ings. An oblig­a­tory attribute of any birth­day is the pre­sen­ta­tion of gifts, in some fam­i­lies there is a tra­di­tion of unpack­ing them in the pres­ence of guests.

In our state, this is not com­mon, but in Amer­i­ca it is a fair­ly com­mon and impor­tant part of the birth­day cel­e­bra­tion in every Amer­i­can fam­i­ly.

At the end of the hol­i­day, it is a solemn tra­di­tion to bring in a cake with burn­ing can­dles (the num­ber of can­dles should be accord­ing to the age of the birth­day per­son), all the guests sing the song “Hap­py Birth­day to You”, the hero of the occa­sion makes a wish and blows out the can­dles in one breath. There is a belief that if you blow out all the can­dles at once, then your wish will come true. Guests are treat­ed to a cake with tea, and then it is cus­tom­ary to go home.

Each per­son, cel­e­brat­ing a birth­day, makes his own changes to the cel­e­bra­tion. These nuances are very indi­vid­ual and depend on the wish­es of the birth­day per­son, fam­i­ly tra­di­tions and mood. And also these fea­tures depend on the tra­di­tions of the coun­try. Let’s con­sid­er some of them.

  1. In Ire­land, it is cus­tom­ary to turn the birth­day child upside down and, hold­ing the legs, gen­tly lor the head to the floor as many times as it has turned years old, plus 1 time.
  2. In Mex­i­co, in con­trast to our tra­di­tion of blow­ing out can­dles, there is a cus­tom of break­ing a doll con­tain­ing sets with a stick.
  3. In Korea, the birth­day boy treats every­one with rice cakes: the more peo­ple taste the birth­day cakes, the longer his life will be.
  4. In Japan, birth­days are not cel­e­brat­ed every year, only 3, 5 and 7 years. In addi­tion, this is not a chil­dren’s hol­i­day, but a cel­e­bra­tion of the achieve­ments of par­ents.
  5. The Chi­nese tra­di­tion­al­ly pre­pare long noo­dles for the fes­tive table, which sym­bol­izes longevi­ty. Dur­ing the meal, it is cus­tom­ary to chew it as long as pos­si­ble.
  6. On the day of birth, the Danes fly the nation­al flag, sym­bol­iz­ing that anoth­er year has passed.
  7. In Thai­land, it is cus­tom­ary to release a bird from a cage, while mak­ing a wish that will sure­ly come true.
  8. Viet­namese don’t cel­e­brate birth­days. They have a “Hol­i­day of New Years” — one hol­i­day for the whole coun­try.
  9. In Cuba, birth­day cel­e­bra­tions are giv­en spe­cial atten­tion. They cel­e­brate it nois­i­ly and cheer­ful­ly, they can invite casu­al acquain­tances to the table.
  10. Jamaica, as always, is an orig­i­nal coun­try. On the birth­day of a per­son, it is cus­tom­ary to sprin­kle with flour.

A thir­ty-year-old girl can choose any of these meth­ods, or she can inde­pen­dent­ly think over how to cel­e­brate the hol­i­day in her own style.

Location selection

When plan­ning the thir­ti­eth birth­day, first of all, you need to decide on the place where the event will be held. Now there are many options, and this point should be con­sid­ered in detail. And also it is worth con­sid­er­ing some nuances:

  • the num­ber of invit­ed guests;
  • age cat­e­go­ry of guests;
  • mate­r­i­al com­po­nent (how much you are will­ing to spend);
  • style in which you want to spend a hol­i­day;
  • sea­son.

The cel­e­bra­tion of the girl’s thir­ti­eth birth­day can be orga­nized any­where. And in a night­club, and in the fam­i­ly cir­cle, and on the beach. It all depends on the sea­son and the ather fore­cast for that day. If the birth­day is in win­ter, then it makes no sense to plan a hol­i­day in the fresh air. Oth­er­wise, when the birth­day is in the sum­mer, you should not be in a stuffy room, you want to breathe in the cool sea breeze. In spring and autumn, the choice of a place depends entire­ly on the fore­cast of mete­o­rol­o­gists: on warm days you can get out for a bar­be­cue, but on cool, rainy days it is bet­ter to be indoors.


Many girls pre­fer to cel­e­brate their anniver­sary at home with loved ones. In this case, the cost of prepar­ing for the hol­i­day is reduced. You do not have to pay for the rent of the premis­es, for the music and for the atten­dants.

Every­thing hap­pens in the close cir­cle of the fam­i­ly. Cer­tain­ly with their tra­di­tions and dis­cus­sions of favorite top­ics. Vivid mem­o­ries of close rel­a­tives about how pret­ty the birth­day girl was born 30 years ago.

Great sav­ings will be the use­less­ness of resort­ing to the ser­vices of a toast­mas­ter, because in the com­pa­ny of close peo­ple these ser­vices are not need­ed. It is very nice and fam­i­ly-like to spend a birth­day in such con­di­tions.

Birth­day par­ties at home can be held in any sea­son and in any ather.


If a girl cel­e­brates her thir­ti­eth birth­day in late spring, sum­mer or ear­ly autumn, then it will be rel­e­vant to spend her birth­day in nature. Fresh air is always help­ful. A great idea to orga­nize a hol­i­day on the shore of a pond in the open air. Or go to the cot­tage. It’s great to hold such an event away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the city.

Invit­ed guests must be warned that the cel­e­bra­tion will take place in an open area so that they can ar suit­able clothes and take with them all the nec­es­sary acces­sories.

In the cafe

In every city there are a lot of cafes and restau­rants that will be hap­py to pre­pare every­thing for the cel­e­bra­tion of the girl’s thir­ti­eth birth­day. This great­ly sim­pli­fies the prepa­ra­tions for the birth­day girl, saves her time. It is cus­tom­ary to order a cafe in advance, about two eks before the birth­day. It is worth dis­cussing the dec­o­ra­tion of the hall and the fes­tive table with the cre­ative direc­tor, and the list of dish­es and the num­ber of guests with the head chef. Cel­e­brat­ing an anniver­sary in a cafe will cost a lot, but it will great­ly sim­pli­fy the task of prepa­ra­tion, and the birth­day girl will have more time for her­self.

Themed party options

Hav­ing decid­ed to spend her birth­day in a the­mat­ic style, the girl will show a high lev­el of prepa­ra­tion for the hol­i­day, which will leave vivid mem­o­ries in her mem­o­ry and the mem­o­ry of the invit­ed guests for many years to come. An unlim­it­ed vari­ety of themes for such an evening allows you to choose what suits the spir­it and char­ac­ter of the birth­day girl. Most birth­day girls have inter­est­ing ideas for the hol­i­day, but if there is no time to do this, you can always turn to the ser­vices of a toast­mas­ter. Describe your pref­er­ences and ideas to him. He orga­nizes a fun hol­i­day and will be the host of the event. This will enable the hero of the occa­sion to com­plete­ly relax and get the most out of the birth­day cel­e­bra­tion.

We offer sev­er­al options for themed par­ties to cel­e­brate the anniver­sary of the girl.

  • Hawai­ian par­ty are bright col­ors, cock­tails in coconuts and dances in eth­nic style. A lot of dec­o­ra­tions and sim­ple cos­tumes, which are dec­o­rat­ed with flors, will make this par­ty incen­di­ary. If desired, you can orga­nize both in win­ter and in sum­mer. In the warm sea­son, a good option for orga­niz­ing on the beach, in the cold sea­son at home, in a rent­ed restau­rant or in a bath­house.

  • pirate Par­ty is an evening of adven­ture in the style of Cap­tain Jack Spar­row. You might think that this theme is more suit­able for chil­dren, but it is not. This style makes it pos­si­ble to come up with a plot sce­nario for the entire par­ty. The search for trea­sures on the map will be accom­pa­nied by many com­pe­ti­tions, laugh­ter, log­i­cal think­ing and agili­ty of the par­tic­i­pants. And besides, the orig­i­nal cos­tumes of the guests diver­si­fy the sur­round­ings, because it’s always fun to remem­ber a lit­tle youth­ful child­ish­ness.

  • 1930s Chica­go Mafia Retro Par­ty - these are incred­i­bly beau­ti­ful cos­tumes and hair­styles, incen­di­ary dances of mafiosi with their beau­ti­ful ladies.

  • The ori­en­tal theme is fas­ci­nat­ing. Bel­ly dance in a tent with a rich entourage of gold, brass, the aro­ma of ori­en­tal sets and hookah will not leave any­one indif­fer­ent. The birth­day girl will feel like an Ara­bi­an princess from the Thou­sand and One Nights fairy tales.

The sea of ​​expen­sive cham­pagne, the red car­pet, play­ful nom­i­na­tions will give you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to break away from real­i­ty and get into the world of show busi­ness. It will take a lit­tle mon­ey, but the result is worth it.

Contests and games

Think­ing through the whole orga­ni­za­tion of the anniver­sary, it is worth decid­ing whether you want to spend your birth­day with humor. If yes, then you should pre­pare an enter­tain­ment pro­gram using var­i­ous com­pe­ti­tions, tasks and games. There are many options for games, both active and calm, which are held with­out get­ting up from the table.

A young birth­day woman can come up with these enter­tain­ments her­self, and in the absence of time, turn to a pro­fes­sion­al for help.

For exam­ple, here are a few con­tests and games that you can include in your script for cel­e­brat­ing your thir­ti­eth birth­day.

Let’s start with com­pe­ti­tions.

  • “Dress the lady.” Pairs of par­tic­i­pants are cho­sen, which con­sist of a man and a woman. The female par­tic­i­pants hold a skein of rib­bon in their hands. Men should, with­out using their hands, take this ball of rib­bon and tie it around the woman, giv­ing the appear­ance of a dress. Who wrapped the lady more beau­ti­ful­ly, that cou­ple won.
  • “Guess who drinks alco­hol.” Both men and women can par­tic­i­pate in this com­pe­ti­tion. A clear liq­uid is poured into the glass­es. Par­tic­i­pants use a straw to drink it with min­i­mal expres­sion of emo­tion. The task of the audi­ence is to guess who had vod­ka in their glass and who had water.
  • Con­test “Mater­ni­ty Hos­pi­tal” requires the par­tic­i­pants to dis­play artistry. Cou­ples par­tic­i­pate: a man — a woman. The man seems to be stand­ing under the win­dows of the mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal and with ges­tures is try­ing to ask ques­tions about the child to a woman who has just giv­en birth. The win­dows in the mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal are tight­ly closed, so you can only com­mu­ni­cate with ges­tures. The woman also ansrs ques­tions with ges­tures. The facil­i­ta­tor pre­pares ques­tions in advance, it is very impor­tant to diver­si­fy them and make them unex­pect­ed for the par­tic­i­pants. The win­ner is the cou­ple who man­aged to make the guests laugh the best.

There are active and inac­tive games, will give a few exam­ples.

  • “Con­fes­sion”. Cards are pre­pared in two dif­fer­ent col­ors. Ques­tions are writ­ten on dark-col­ored cards, ansrs are writ­ten on light-col­ored cards. The par­tic­i­pants in the game take turns pulling out first a ques­tion card, and then an ansr to this ques­tion, voic­ing it out loud. The main point is that any ansr should fit any ques­tion. For exam­ple, a par­tic­i­pant draws out the ques­tion “Do you like to enjoy food?”. Voic­es it, then pulls out the ansr “Only awake and in slip­pers” — and also voic­es it. A very fun­ny and inter­est­ing game that is played with­out get­ting up from the table.
  • Active games. You can, for exam­ple, jump on one leg a dis­tance of 10 meters, hold­ing a glass full of water in your hand. Who­ev­er jumps to the end with the glass with the most liq­uid in it wins. You can also quick­ly walk the same dis­tance with a book on your head, a glass of water in one hand, or using a broom with your oth­er hand. It’ll be pret­ty fun­ny.

Original congratulations

Each invit­ed guest for the anniver­sary wants to con­grat­u­late the birth­day girl in a spe­cial way. For cre­ative peo­ple, this is a sim­ple task, but for those who do not allow fan­ta­sy to come up with some­thing orig­i­nal, they turn to the Inter­net for help.

If the birth­day girl is your friend, then you can give free rein to your fan­ta­sy and come up with some­thing like that. For exam­ple, write con­grat­u­la­to­ry words on what­man paper and stick joint pho­tos on it. At the same time, you can briefly describe a fun­ny inci­dent that hap­pened to you — a sec­ond of mem­o­ries nev­er hurts. Or inflate the bal­loons with heli­um and attach a card with a descrip­tion of what you love about your girl­friend to each rib­bon of the bal­loon. The num­ber of balls is equiv­a­lent to the num­ber of cards with com­pli­ments.

Today, a very pop­u­lar option for con­grat­u­lat­ing loved ones is a video greet­ing.

Par­ents usu­al­ly con­grat­u­late their daugh­ter with warm hugs and ten­der words. These are the most antic­i­pat­ed con­grat­u­la­tions. Some moms and dads pre­pare more seri­ous­ly for con­grat­u­la­tions and, while the birth­day girl is sleep­ing, qui­et­ly dec­o­rate the apart­ment. It turns out a real sur­prise in the morn­ing. Par­ents can pre­pare a solemn speech and deliv­er it at the begin­ning of the meal at the table.

Beloved wife should cer­tain­ly be con­grat­u­lat­ed first of all with gen­tle words of love and a bou­quet. As for the gift, she will be delight­ed with a box with jel­ry.

Script Ideas

Ideas for cel­e­brat­ing the thir­ti­eth anniver­sary are end­less. Con­sid­er the option of cel­e­brat­ing in a restau­rant with close rel­a­tives and friends. Let’s write every­thing in order.

  1. You can dec­o­rate the hall with flo­ral dec­o­ra­tions and paper decor. It is bet­ter to choose a range of col­ors bright and joy­ful.
  2. Pre­pare a pho­to zone. Every­one is already bored with pho­tographs against an incom­pre­hen­si­ble back­ground: they are all of the same type and unin­ter­est­ing. Set up a place to take pic­tures. Stock up on a vari­ety of hats, wigs, mus­tach­es on sticks, and glass­es. An incred­i­ble amount of sin­cere smiles in the pho­tos is pro­vid­ed.
  3. Arrange a flash mob with red bal­loons inflat­ed with heli­um. All invi­tees must bring heli­um bal­loons, and they will need to be released at the same time with best wish­es for the birth­day girl.
  4. As enter­tain­ment dur­ing the meal, you can arrange a win-win lot­tery. Ask every­one invit­ed to write a greet­ing and their name on a card. Put all the cards in a small round vase, mix and pull out one by one, read­ing the con­tents of the con­grat­u­la­tions. Give the writer a mini prize.
  5. A few music com­pe­ti­tions will not let even the most des­per­ate skep­tics get bored. For exam­ple, gath­er a girls’ choir and a boys’ choir. Give them two dif­fer­ent pop­u­lar songs, some time to pre­pare, and let them sing along with the back­ing track. It’s going to be pret­ty fun.
  6. No hap­py birth­day is com­plete with­out danc­ing. Gath­er two teams and arrange a dance bat­tle to dif­fer­ent songs.
  7. Time cap­sule with promis­es. In a bot­tle, for exam­ple, from cham­pagne, you can put cards with birth­day promis­es. Call her every ekend, help her once a month with clean­ing the house — these can be the promis­es you made to the birth­day girl and to each oth­er.
  8. At the end of the evening, the birth­day girl should take a self­ie with each of the invit­ed guests.

    Birth­day is a very joy­ful and bright hol­i­day. It does­n’t mat­ter where you spend it, in what style and with what sce­nario. The key to hav­ing fun is hav­ing loved ones near­by.
