Although turning 30 is not as commonly celebrated as the 40th or 50th year, why not celebrate 30th birthdays in a big way? There are many 30th birthday ideas that would be a hit with any fun-loving 30 year old. A party with a golf theme is highlighted below.
A Golf Theme Party
Turn the party site into the 19th Hole at a golf and country club and “wow” the guests! This theme would work well for golfers, as well as guests who are non-golfers.
Make the invitations sophisticated:
Create golf and drink graphics and add the words “19th Hole.” Ask guests to wear golf clothing to add to the fun.
Go all out with decorations:
• Table covers:
Here’s one of the great 30th birthday party ideas: Set up the tables with vinyl grass-looking table covers. Online you can find nice flannel-backed coverings measuring 52”X90.” They are reusable. The price is about $10.00. Most customers were very satisfied, but a few customers noticed a bad smell, which disappeared after spreading it out. Another table covering was made from vinyl and measured 54”X108.” It was very plain looking and seemed to be quite thin. It likely wasn’t reusable. The price is around $6.50.
• Table toppers:
Think about these 30th birthday ideas.The tables and other areas could be decorated with 18 inch Golf ball Metallic Balloons attached to Golf Ball Balloon weights. Customers thought these balloons looked fantastic, were long lasting, easy to inflate and a lot of fun. The price was $1.35 per item with a minimum order of 5 and the balloon holder weight was $3.15. Other golf balloons were white with a golfer swinging a club. They were definitely not too exciting and there was a warning about a choking hazard. One 25 balloon bag was $11.70.
• Other ideas for golf related decorations include golf banners with room for imprinted messages to the birthday person, green and white eating utensils, plates, cups and napkins.

Appetizers like crab cocktail, oysters on the half shells, and calamari would impress the guests. Serve golf-related drinks such as Arnold Palmers and John Dalys.
The guest of honor at 30th birthdays will want a cool looking cake. Order one from the bakery or find a talented friend to make it. Spread a white cake with green tinted frosting for the golf course. Decorate the “green” with purchased toppers like golfers, clubs, balls, holes and flags.
