Classic! it’s your friend’s birthday again but the only problem is that you’ve been friends for so long you can’t think of what to get her anymore! Don’t pull out your hair racking your brain for inspiration, because ClassBento’s unique birthday party ideas for women in Melbourne will have you celebrating her special day without repeating anything you’ve done before! Unless you have actually done one of the Melbourne workshops we recommend, in which case, pick another one.
With so many fun things to do in Melbourne, ClassBento has an array of classes and workshops that make perfect gifts for mum, 40th birthday ideas, or whatever special occasion you and the birthday girl may be celebrating! You can find everything under our “birthday” category on our website, but we’ve made things easier for you by offering up a few birthday party ideas and suggestions to get you started.
Here at ClassBento, we don’t play favourites with our Melbourne workshops. Like a good parent, we love them all equally, and each has different strengths and weaknesses. No matter how you choose to celebrate, our birthday party ideas will offer you a unique experience with some of the best things to do in Melbourne.
And one of those unique experiences is the Green Olive at Red Hill. An hour’s drive out of Melbourne, Green Olive at Red Hill sits out at the Mornington Penninsula, boasting a beautiful farm, winery, kitchen and plenty of farm-to-table food. As far as things to do in Melbourne this weekend, heading out and getting a taste of the farm life is a wonderful getaway and one of the best birthday experiences ClassBento offers.
From fun and delicious food and wine tasting classes, olive oil tasting workshops and a farmer’s lunch experience where you will indulge in beautiful farm-fresh produce, all the way to enjoying tapas whilst savouring the hot springs that surround the farm, you have no shortage of birthday party ideas for the lucky lady in your life. These are also very popular getaway gifts for mum, as you can also book accommodation on the farm separately. They also run very hands-on butchery classes, if you really want to throw her in the deep end. Regardless of what you’re looking for, you can check out Green Olive at Red Hill’s extensive list of workshops and birthday experiences here.
If you felt like well and truly spoiling the birthday girl on her special day, one of our most popular Melbourne workshops is actually 152 kilometres west of Melbourne in the majestic Otway Ranges! If she’s into photography, Alfonso’s Photography Tours run an incredible three-day photography tour of Beech Forest, where you’ll capture seascapes, waterfalls and ancient woods virtually untouched by the modern world. Although a good level of fitness and a love of photography is needed for this workshop, this is an ideal birthday party idea for the right woman!
Looking for unique birthday party ideas in Melbourne, but a photography course or a farm stay just ain’t your jam? Get it. Totally get it. Not everyone enjoys fresh air and good food and, if you or the birthday girl is one of those people, we’ve still got an array of options waiting - begging even - for you to snatch them up and make this year’s birthday ideas the best so far.
If you’re looking for unique Melbourne experiences, the world’s most liveable city is positively bursting at the seams when it comes to pottery and kintsugi workshops! Why do these make good birthday party ideas we hear you enquire? Pottery and wheel throwing workshops are exceedingly popular experience gifts among women who are looking for a more meditative and mindful birthday experience. Our wheel throwing workshops are a great way to discover the art of pottery, as they’re highly creative and real messy fun! Our introduction to wheel throwing pottery class can also offer one-on-one classes, so you don’t need to rely on a whole separate group turning up for the class to go ahead!
Kintsugi is very popular for birthday experiences, and fantastic for 50th birthday ideas due to its inclusive nature and relaxed class atmosphere. Kintsugi is the Japanese art form of pottery repair, where broken bits of ceramic are sealed back together using gold and resin, creating a beautiful design that runs through and around the ceramic.
These crafty and interactive Melbourne workshops are fantastic for engaging in a new unique cultural experience and make for one of the most memorable birthday experiences ClassBento offers. Want to really spoil them on their birthday? Kintsugi Australia offers you the chance to gift a two-day workshop intensive into the art of Kintsugi!
If you’re chasing 30th birthday ideas for the lady, another popular birthday MVP is our hand-building ceramics and sangria class in Fitzroy! Discover pottery over a few glasses of beautifully delectable sangria with the girls in this intimate and highly enjoyable Melbourne workshop. Public classes max out at 16, so you can be sure it’s a small, informal and enjoyable affair, and one of many birthday party ideas bound to put a smile on your face!
With so many fun things to do in Melbourne, there’s no shortage of unique birthday party ideas for the special woman in your life. If you’re still unsure of where to start and what to get, you can always purchase a Classbento gift card and let them choose their own Melbourne workshops and classes. Whatever you decide on, ClassBento has the perfect birthday experiences for her and exciting gifts for mum, no matter what birthday they’re celebrating.
