When you’ve reached that 50th birthday you may find yourself wondering where all the time went to. Just yesterday you were twenty-five and living large, now you feel a little tired. Make up for lost time with a big 50th birthday party. The half century mark shouldn’t be a time to sit back, but instead to get up and move around.
A stand up cocktail party can provide the elegance some prefer for this big event. It’s easy to purchase plenty of 50th birthday party napkins for guests to use at the event. You can even find some light up wine and champagne glasses to add a little glow to your event. Hanging dangles from the ceiling will reflect the lights in the room.
To really add some spark to your birthday you can celebrate it with lots of golden decorations. Maybe even turn it into a Safari Party or Pirate celebration and your guests will get to go on a hunt for golden treasure. Don’t worry about this being too childish, everyone should take the time to act like a kid now and then. Bring in some plastic coins to spread around the tables and make a golden yellow cake.
Guests sometimes surprise the soon-to-be fifty year old with their own surprise party. This can be intended to poke light fun at the guest of honor’s Over the Hill status. A birthday cake shaped like a tombstone or coffin can bring some ironic giggles. Gag gifts such as an old age care basket filled with Adult diapers, Aspercream, and reading glasses with really thick lenses will get lots of laughs from the guests and hopefully the receiver. Black and gray colored decorations can add to the theme. Get black streamers to hang from the ceiling. And a banner with a funny Over the Hill saying to hang above the buffet table.
