We’re celebrating two golden birthdays this month! Here are some fun ideas to make this day extra special. If you’re wondering “what is a golden birthday” or looking for golden birthday ideas, here’s a great list! 


Two of my boys have their golden birthdays this month. I love finding little ways to make the basic days more fun, so I asked my followers for their best golden birthday ideas.


What is a Golden Birthday? 

A golden birthday is when you’re turning the same age as the date of your birthday – turning 8 on the 8th, 20 on the 20th, etc.

Golden Birthday Ideas

  • Do a golden breakfast – get donuts and spry them with edible gold color mist and use gold utensils, cups, and plates. Then give them a Golden Ticket to redeem for activities the rest of the day.
  • Throw them a “Golden Ticket” themed party for their golden birthday – everything is candy-themed!
  • Write a favorite memory on a golden note card for them to keep.
  •  Give a golden snitch (candy or replica) from Harry Potter
  • Decorate with gold everything: balloons, streamers, plates, etc.
  • Golden snacks: Goldfish, Golden Grahams, Haribo Gold bears, Hershey’s Gold, Golden Oreos
  • Brunch with gold food: waffles, egg casseroles, pineapple, tater tots, and donut holes
  • Maple donuts with gold number candles
  • Treasure hunt to find gold coins and present wrapped in gold paper
  • Wrap all the gifts in golden paper – I love this one!
  • Give the same number gifts as the age they’re turning
  • Gold Christmas ornaments hung from the ceiling like snow!
  • Olympic-themed party with fun games to win gold medals

I hope these ideas help you celebrate a special birthday!
