Being able to reach the age of 60 is a big milestone in one’s life, making it a great excuse to have a big party! But sometimes we do not have enough time to think of what and how will we be able to throw a fun and very exciting party. So were giving some ideas on what and how to prepare the things that you will be needing to celebrating this milestone a big hit to everyone!
60TH BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS
Create an invitation that highlights the celebrator! Be creative as much as you can. You can choose a style that has a spot for a photograph and try to consider putting a picture of the celebrator when he or she was still a little kid or better yet a baby!
You can also use your printer and a cardstock to make your own 60th birthday party invitation. Put some glitters or maybe confetti inside the envelope to make it more exciting and special. You can also include some messages or wordings. Other invitation ideas you can use are caricature invitation, ticket invitation or any other theme that would fit the personality of the celebrator. Remember, your creativity is the limit!
Party Supplies and Decorations
Remember that your ultimate goal in throwing this party is to make the celebrator feel extra super special. Hence, make it thoughtful and creative as much as possible.
You can consider putting up a photo banner of the celebrator using a baby picture or his younger version or current picture, if you’re left with no other option. You can also add a table with pictures and mementos from the milestones of the life of the celebrator such as debut, wedding day, graduation and so on. You can add up a blank book where the guests could sign in and can leave wishes to add more fun. Maybe you could use a guest book, a personalized sign in board or an oversized birthday card.
Serving the celebrators favorite dishes is one great idea. You can use colorful paper goods if you are having the party at home. If you are in a restaurant or if you hired a caterer, they will provide you the menu choices including the utensils, plates and glasses. Make the guest serve themselves to make it easy for them to mingle around the buffet table.
Activities and Games
One activity that is best fit to this kind of occasion is a slideshow of then-and-now pictures of the celebrator. Let everyone stroll down the memory lane for a while and make them remember the things they might have forgotten.
Another activity to consider is honoring the celebrator his or her favorite songs! You can hire a band to fill the venue with his favorite tunes and so the guests could also hit the dance floor.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime event. Thus, do not waste the time to make the celebrator feel special thru this event. Have fun planning and organizing!
