How do you throw a 30th birthday party on a budget?

Throwing a 30th birthday party on a budget is completely possible with a little creativity and resourcefulness. Here are some tips:

Set a budget

Decide on a budget for the party and stick to it. Make a list of all the necessary expenses such as food, decorations, and entertainment, and allocate funds accordingly.

Host the party at home or a public park

Choosing a free or low-cost venue can help reduce expenses. Consider hosting the party at home or a public park that doesn't require rental fees.

DIY decorations

Make your own decorations using materials you already have at home. You can create a festive atmosphere using balloons, streamers, and DIY banners.

Potluck-style food

Ask guests to bring their favourite dish or beverage to share. This not only saves money on catering, but also adds variety to the menu.

Keep the guest list small

Limiting the number of guests can help keep costs down. Consider inviting close friends and family only.

Use free or low-cost entertainment

Plan games or activities that don't require expensive equipment or rentals. For example, you could play board games, charades, or have a sing-along.

Skip the fancy cake

Instead of ordering an expensive birthday cake, make your own or purchase a small cake or cupcakes from a local bakery.

Remember, the most important part of the party is celebrating friends, not how much money you spend. With a little creativity, you can throw a memorable 30th birthday party without breaking the bank.


How do you make a party fun?

Even the most party-pooping guest (there is always one) will be in the party groove when the drinks are flowing and you kickstart the games. A party weekend isn't complete without some brilliant activities and games to break the ice and turbo charge the shenanigans.
