How to Throw an Epic Milestone Birthday Party

Do you have a big birthday coming up? Or maybe you have been entrusted with the job of planning a birthday party for a friend or family member? Either way, when it comes to milestone birthday parties, it’s go big or go home. Not sure where to start?

Read on to discover exactly what you need to do to throw an epic milestone birthday that will be remembered for many years (or even decades) to come! 

Choose a theme 

Although you don’t have to pick a theme for your party, it can help to make the event more memorable. There are so many different themes for you to choose from, with some of the most popular party themes including:

  • Festival 
  • Gatsby 
  • Greatest Showman 
  • Foam  
  • Hawaiian 
  • 90s 
  • Western 
  • Black and white 

Pick a venue 

Depending on your budget and how many people you are planning to invite, you may decide to have the party at your own home, or you might prefer to hire a venue. If you really want your guests to remember your birthday, it can be a good idea to look into more unique party venues which offer something a little bit different from your standard party venue. Many of these will offer stunning surroundings, providing you with the perfect backdrop for the rest of your decorations. 

While you may not think these types of venues would be available to hire for parties, you may be surprised at how many of these places are more than happy to make a little extra money by renting out any unused space. However, make sure you book early to avoid disappointment. 

Hire a professional planner 

Although professional party planners can be costly, if you are planning a large event and feel a bit overwhelmed, then it can be worth the expense. You can find professional party planners that focus on specific areas of party planning, such as securing a venue or finding a caterer, or you can hire one that will take care of everything. 

Some of the most notable benefits of hiring a professional party planner include:

  • They can connect you with trusted vendors
  • They can help to manage your budget 
  • They can take the pressure off you 

Focus on the food 

If there is one thing that everyone always remembers from a party, it’s the food and maybe the choice of drinks too! Whether you choose to hire a catering company to take care of this for you or you prefer to self-cater, make sure that your choice of food ties in with your chosen theme.

Some most popular catering ideas include:

  • Tapas and sharing plates 
  • Mini foods such as mini pies, mini tacos, and mini pizzas
  • Food trucks 
  • Rainbow dessert table 
  • DIY salad bars 
  • Make your own smoothie/cocktail station 

It is also important to think about the practicalities of dining at your selected venue. For example, if you want to offer a proper meal rather than picky foods, then you need to make sure that your guests have somewhere to sit and eat.
