4. In your prime
29, you’re in your prime! No, but really — that’s what it’s called in Bingo! In Bingo, each number has a nickname, and the aficionados often call the number 29 “in your prime.”
Either play a game of Bingo during your party or incorporate this rhyme into the festivities — make it the party hashtag for all the photos, the quote on decorations — have fun with it! In Bingo, 29 uses rhymes like “rise and shine” and “you’re doing fine” if you’d like to incorporate those sayings as well!
5. Belt it out!
Adele may be making the number 30 famous with her 4th studio album — but 29 has some fun songs behind it too! Jam out to 29 by the Gin Blossoms, Ryan Adam’s album “29”, Marc Cohn’s song “29 ways.” You can also play music by musicians that are turning 29 in the next year (like Harry Styles, who is turning 29 on February 1, 2023!).
Make sure you have the best A/V equipment to jam out to at your party by booking a Peerspace that comes with all the equipment you need! Some spaces, like this recently renovated mid-century warehouse in Atlanta (pictured above), even come with a venue coordinator, so you can rest easy knowing the music will be great all night long.
6. Celebrate your 29th year on the 29th day
This year might not be your golden birthday — but you can still celebrate like it is! Celebrate your 29th birthday on the 29th of your birth month. Almost every month of the year has a “holiday” of sorts on the 29th. And to us, some of them sure do seem like perfect themes for 29th birthday ideas!
On August 29, celebrate your bday with an Egyptian New Year’s Party (it’s the first day of the Egyptian calendar) or rent a Peerspace coffee shop for your party on September 29 (National Coffee Day!). April 29 is International Dance Day, October 29 is National Cat Day, and somehow … May 29 is National Put A Pillow On Your Fridge Day? Good luck with that theme — sounds interesting!
7. 29 goals

8. 30 by 30
One of the biggest goals you can set on your 29th birthday is to visit 30 countries by the time you turn 30! If your numbers are looking low — don’t worry. All you need is a long trip to Europe!
There are 44 countries in Europe and traveling between them can be pretty cheap. In fact, you can find flights for 10 euros sometimes! So how about celebrating your birthday in Ireland, Spain, or Greece?
