If you are going to be turning 30 in 2016, you are in good company. Among the stars celebrating their 30th birthdays this year are both Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Stormborn (Emilia Clarke) from Game of Thrones, original bad girl Lindsay Lohan, sex symbol Megan Fox and her Transformers co-star Shia Labouef, creator and star of HBO’s Girls Lena Dunham, and rap star Drake. You also share your 30th year with some people you may remember from your childhood, like Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Josh Peck from Nickleodeon’s Drake and Josh!
While these stars are certain to be planning ahead for glamorous birthday celebrations, there is no reason why you should have any less by way of luxury for your own 30th. After all, 30 is a landmark year and deserves to be marked in style!
If you are planning to go big on luxury for your 30th birthday, but haven’t quite decided on the details, here are some ideas for creating a birthday to remember, that may even put some of the stars to shame!
Your Own Hollywood Banquet
Whether you regularly hang out in Hollywood or have never been, it is a place that can really capture the sense of superstar luxury you want for your special birthday. As a location that plays host to glamorous parties and events every day, there are all kinds of great places you can hire out for your birthday, and you can often call the shots on décor, menu, music and everything else that will make up your night. Check out gorgeous locations like these places for a banquet celebration in Glendale. While this may sound like a level of planning usually reserved for a wedding or charity function, planning a party in your own honor can be a lot of fun, though of course, there is also the option to hire a party planner to make your event perfect without you having to do too much.
Invite your very own A-list of friends and family, and complete the mood by going shopping in Beverley Hills for the perfect outfit for the big night. You can also keep the party going by booking in to a luxury hotel with a few choice people from your guest list, and getting spa treatments and a lavish breakfast the next day!
Of course, if travel to Hollywood is outside of your budget, or your guests’, you can do a similar thing in your hometown, and just make Hollywood glamour the theme!
A Tropical Cruise
Cruises can be the very essence of luxury, and can also give you a chance to see some new places and have some truly memorable experiences for your birthday. Even without a passport, you could explore the Florida Keys or Hawaii, though if you feel like venturing further afield cruises that take in the Caribbean, Mexico and parts of South America can combine some adventure with the idyllic luxury of visiting a tropical paradise. Whether you go with your partner, a select group of friends, or invite everyone you know, spending your days exploring islands and enjoying the beach life and your nights eating luxury cuisine, drinking cocktails and dancing the night away is sure to be a fantastic way to mark your 30th!
A Fun Casino Break
Whether you hit Vegas, Atlantic City, or a casino resort closer to you, you are guaranteed a luxurious experience if you stay at a high end casino complex. With plenty to do besides playing casino games, you can dress up and hit the dancefloor, enjoy lavish food, and crack open the champagne with your friends. Another great benefit to choosing this option is that casinos tend to offer complementary things to people who can prove they are celebrating their birthdays, so you may get free drinks, room upgrades, extras on your meals (like birthday cake!) and even free chips to play with! Casinos in places like Las Vegas and Atlantic City that are known for being true entertainment hubs will also have shows for you to see, great bars and nightclubs, and of course, those beautiful, over the top lights!
Wherever you choose to spend your 30th birthday, and whether your guest list is large or you want an intimate occasion with your partner or closest girlfriends, these options give you ways to celebrate the occasion with a once in a lifetime experience you will remember well into the future!
