In just a few days I am entering my 40s. It’s had me thinking about many things since my 30th birthday – a marriage, three moves including a move from Florida to Virginia, and the addition of 3 more kids (twins being the topper.) When I look back at my 30th birthday party, I have to laugh. It included a divorce 3 days prior, kids at a very nice French restaurant, and a clown. I kid you not, my mother hired a clown for my surprise 30th birthday. Perhaps Bo Jangles, the clown, brought some luck to my 30s and a new decade after all.
If a clown is not your thing, how about 30th birthday themes that celebrate you? In this article, explore 30th birthday ideas for celebrating this important milestone. This warrants a celebration!
