50th birthday party planning can sometimes be a bit difficult especially in selecting to hire 25 passenger party bus Florida services. Not everyone reaching the age of 50 likes the fact that half of his or her life may be over. They may even be wondering how they reached 50 so fast.
Unless you know the birthday person really well, do not assume because he or she is very good-natured the “over the hill” theme will be appreciated. Other themes may be more appropriate and appreciated a lot more.
Many people love to have fun with the over-the-hill theme but many times it turns out that the person giving the party likes the theme a LOT more than the honoree.
Instead of black balloons and gag gifts about being old and decrepit, why not celebrate the first 50 years of the birthday person’s life? Pictures of his or her childhood or events that were important to that person could be made into a scrapbook or put on DVD to enjoy whenever the mood strikes.
If you plan early enough, you can contact people from the guest of honor’s past and have them write about something the honoree did that was so special to them or why he or she is so special to them.
Add these stories to the scrapbook or make a book with just these memoirs in them. Some of the best ones could be read aloud at the party. Looking back and honoring the first 50 years of a friend’s life may also show how much you really do like and appreciate who they really are.
That, in itself, is a gift that is priceless. How about making the party theme based on the honoree’s favorite past time? Does she or he have a favorite sport they love to play or watch? Maybe the honoree is a fix-it-yourself type of person.
Is gardening or card playing a big part in his or her life? Just a little thought will have you coming up with all sorts of good themes. Choose the one that seems to fit your guest of honor’s personality the best.
Then go all out and make it the best 50th birthday party ever given.
Here are a few tips to make your 50th birthday party planning a breeze: Decorating is a must and be sure to go all out! Black balloons are great, even better when they have sayings on them like “over the hill” or “old fart”.
Have some filled with helium and have streamers on them so they are always noticeable and can be moved around the room and placed to their best advantage. Others, not filled with helium, can be tied to chairs and placed on tables.
Streamers, in the black of course, as well as banners showing almost any old age frailty or over-the-hill slogans, are a must.
Don’t forget the tableware – tablecloths, cups, and napkins in this theme can be purchased easily from any party store.
