Create a gorgeous, girlie tablescape

It isn't a 30th birthday pary without an over-the-top birthday cake! The dessert table can become the focal point of the party with just a few extra touches. Take things up a notch by adding a beautiful table runner, extra sparkle with gemstones or crystals, and even some sparkler cake toppers.

Add a Personal Touch

If you are looking for an adorable trip down memory lane, create a photo board using an old frame and display photos from the past 30 years. Have guests add their own fun photos and at the end of the party, the birthday gal will have a wonderful keepsake.
