50th Birthday celebrations are important landmark events for everyone & stylish & sophisticated events aren’t just reserved for the rich & famous. Our special birthdays are proving to have all the glitz & glamour you’d expect from a celebrity A-lister but without the huge price tag!
Australian darling Kylie Minogue is celebrating her 50th birthday in May this year. She’s planning to go all out on a celebrity-packed bash to mark the special milestone in London. Sparing no expense, this glam event is sure to be seriously pricey & the pop princess is dealing with all of the arrangements herself.
But what if you want to mark your 50th birthday celebrations in style but don’t want the huge bill or have to deal with all the planning yourself?
Here are a few of our top ideas for big birthday celebrations without the celebrity price-tag.
Ditch the D-I-Y venue
A few months back Kate Moss spent an overwhelming amount of dosh kitting out her Cotswold home for a Bowie tribute bash for her 42nd birthday. As fabulous as the party was, we all sat around in the office wondering what the cleanup bill was once everyone had finished the last drop of champagne & went home.
I mean, who wants to be clearing up paper plates & doing the ‘walk of shame’ to an overflowing glass recycling bin the day after?
One celeb who’s got the right idea is David Beckham who jetted off to sunny Marrakesh to celebrate his birthday, leaving the British weather behind & letting someone else deal with the finer details.
Be more Beckham & let someone else deal with the planning & aftermath of your 50th birthday celebrations by jetting off somewhere warm to mark your milestone birthday, it doesn’t have to break the bank.
OUR TOP TIP. Go slightly out of season. Travel during the week. Book in advance & share a room, spend your money on the special things. Start a savings club.
