3 Tips For Making A Milestone Birthday Special


As we get older, we tend to place less and less importance on our birthday celebrations, even if it can be nice to head out for a meal with our family, or receive a few modest gifts and congratulations. But of course, there’s not really that much difference in turning 47 than there is in turning 43, you’ve seen a good amount of birthdays by then and probably don’t make too much noise about it.

Milestone birthdays are different, of course. This might involve turning 21, 30, 40, 50, 60, and certainly each 25 years as well. If you’re heading to one of these milestone birthdays that not only signify a year in age but also a new chapter in your life, it’s fun to plan a little more to make things special and worthwhile.

In this post, then, we’ll discuss how exactly to achieve that, without having to ruin your bank account or make the event ‘too ornate,’ as it were. With that in mind, let’s consider:

Catering With Care

A beautifully catered event can be perfect for larger events, especially if you hope to rent a private space. It will also work out cheaper for each person than paying for a full restaurant meal for everyone in attendance. Catering for a birthday can be a wonderful experience, especially if you’re doing so for a surprise birthday party, and the food can be tremendously shareable with nibbles for eating while standing. This food can come in many forms, from course meals to barbecue you can eat at social events. Great food helps an amazing birthday stand out in the best way.

Inviting Extended Family & Friends

If you just wish for a peaceful birthday and for no one to kick up that much noise about it, that’s fine. But it can also be nice to invite extended friends or family if you feel up to it - you may be surprised how many people will be happy to travel to celebrate such a milestone and to do so with real care. Inviting extended family and friends can feel both enjoyable and fun, and perhaps connect you to people you haven’t seen in some time also. Plus it’s not as if you have to be connected to them hip with them the entire time, or see them for longer than a weekend. A special effort like this really does help you enjoy this experience for all it’s worth.

Opt For A Special Treat

It’s good to spend a little on yourself, and so planning for a special trip during a milestone birthday is certainly justifiable in the best way. This might include heading on a special overnight luxury train through Europe, heading on a cruise, or simply enjoying a fantastic hike in a remote village you’ve been wanting to enjoy. Heading to the theatre, or the opera, or the local sports game if that’s what you enjoy can be a fantastic use of your time too, and they may even reserve you special seats if you book in advance.

With this advice, we hope you can make your upcoming milestone birthday the best one yet.
