    Default What did you do on your last 'milestone' birthday?

    I would really love to hear (from those who actually celebrated) what you did on your last milestone birthday?

    I have a milestone birthday coming up and I was hoping I could avoid the whole 'party' thing and go overseas, but alas, I haven't gotten organised and now I have others asking what will I be doing. I have 4 kids under 8 who would be in attendance as well as other kiddies, so please hit me with your ideas and/or what you did to celebrate your last 'milestone' birthday.

    I was pregnant and had bad morning sickness that would come on in the afternoon so we did a buffet lunch with family at a restaurant and people paid their own instead of a present. It was an anticlimax as I wanted a big drinking party to welcome the milestone but being pregnant I settled on lunch instead. It was more practical.

    I partied the day and night away in Edinburgh with dh and friends. That was pre kids though. For my next one I will likely be pregnant/have a newborn so it won't be nearly as exciting.

    I had a high tea at home, hired tea cups and teapots, chairs, borrowed tables, used paper plates though. Cooked up lots of finger food and my mum and mil both pitched in with some food too. It was awesome, I had so much fun. No drinking/nighttime party with a 2 year old and being 14 weeks pregnant.

    I've actually let all of my "milestone" birthdays slip by without too much of a fuss. My 18th, 21st and 30th were all quiet affairs.

    Im planning on making my 40th a doozy though Hire a venue, dress to the nines, catering, champagne.... the works. Still a few years to work out the finer details though

    For my 30th I had a big party at home. Was really nice ... got a whole suckling pig on a spit ... lots of people. Was lovely.

    For my 40th I did have a party, but it was kinda subdued. Just a few friends and family, bbq at home kind of thing. Was nice, but certainly a lot more low key

    My last milestone birthday was my 40th lol it was 6 weeks before we were getting married, Dh DS and I went up to the hunter for a pre wedding photo shoot and made a bit of a weekend out if it. We had no family living here at the time so no point in a party.

    I had a combined 30th party with one of my friends on the rooftop of a pub in Sydney. We had a 'vintage glamour' theme. Great night! This was pre-kids.
