    A milestone birthday party at home, yes I would expect some alcohol to be provided. Beer & bubbles would be a nice touch.

    If it was at a pub & any old birthday, no expectation.

    What do you normally do?

    For us, we would provide beer (DH homebrews so has a keg or two) and we would provide some wine/bubbles.

    Maybe get 2x white, 2x red and 2x bubbly.

    As for types most NZ SSB's are good. Red maybe go for a Shiraz and bubbly just go for a mid priced dry one.

    I would not provide any spirits.

    Definitely depends on what you usually do. In our group of friends, I'd expect guests to bring drinks but the hosts would probably provide some too.

    Default Small 30th party - to supply alcohol or BYO?

    Thanks ladies. No one has had a party since their 21sts; when we catch up for a birthday it's always at a restaurant so haven't had to face this yet, hubby is the first to turn 30 in the group! when we have a get together at someone's house for no particular occasion, everyone usually brings their own. With family though, they probably will expect a bit of alcohol but that's fine as there aren't many who will drink from our families anyway so we're not looking at needing to get too much.

    We had a very similar situation when DH turned 30 a few years ago.

    DS was barely 3wks old.

    We had a backyard bbq type party. I put BYO drinks on the invitations.

    Made things easier as hosting a party with a newborn is hectic enough

    We provided beer, wine, soft drink and bubbles and suggested that if people had particular tastes or wanted spirits that they were welcome to bring along

    I'd never expect people to provide alcohol. It's a personal decision and depends on finances etc.

    I would stipulate on the invite if you want BYO drinks.

    We always take our own plus some
    Nibbles etc to contribute if being held at home. In saying that if I'm hosting I generally have some basic beer and bubbles if we have people over (however most of our family and friends bring their own we still like to offer)
