It only happens once in a lifetime and it'll hit you before your 30s - a golden birthday is a landmark in its own right, and deserves special consideration when planning for such an event.
For those who are scratching their heads, a golden birthday occurs when you're so blessed to turn 30 on December 30th, or 8 on September 8th. It's the magical year when your age coincides with the day of the month, lending an extra numerical significance to an already charmed occasion.
If this happens to be your year, make it a golden event - gold champagne flutes and a cake server set will bump up your celebration on the class and sophistication factor and will make for a toast that will go down in history.
Gold wire tree place card holders will be an apt addition for any winter birthday, especially if the big day is during or around the holidays.
To really tie together the event, offer birthday favors to guests in gold sheer organza bags.
