Here are some unique 50th birthday party ideas for her that will surely be exciting and memorable:
Play recorded and live greetings during the party
One of the most brilliantly special and truly meaningful 50th birthday ideas is to play recorded and live greetings during the party. You may record the greetings yourself or take advantage of the services online who gather audio greetings from family and friends for the celebrant and compile them in one CD. To add to the surprise, you may also arrange a call from someone very special to the celebrant who could not join the party. Let that person greet and talk to the celebrant live during the party, especially if you wish to set a more sentimental mood for a sentimental woman.
Make the venue a walk-in scrapbook of her life
Many women, especially in their younger years, love scrapbooks, magazines, and photos. To make the party place more unique, make the venue a walk-in scrapbook of her life. Hang pictures of her from her childhood up to the present day along with her family and friends, including school pictures, wedding pictures, and family pictures. You may also display some of her favorite quotes, poems, and song lyrics at every table, as well as post her best blown-up portraits during her youth in large vintage frames. The place will surely be unique and sentimental at the same time.
Dress up like you were back in the years of her youth
Bring back the fun times by asking the celebrant and the guests to dress like they used to dress in the 70s or early 80s. Make sure to invite her old friends around. Play some groovy music and enjoy some fun party games they used to have back then. The celebrant will surely have fun on her 50th birthday as she did in her youth.
Serve old-fashioned goodies
The past can come back to life on the celebrant’s 50th birthday. Bring back old memories by serving the favorite candies the celebrant used to love when she was little, as well as favorite pastries and favorite dishes. She will surely enjoy all these goodies with her friends. Expect a night full of laughter and good memories.
Personalize her birthday cake with her favorite childhood theme
Birthdays are always full of surprises. Make her 50th birthday more surprising and memorable by personalizing her birthday cake with her favorite childhood or youth theme or icon. Be it cartoon character-themed or favorite movie and or actor-themed, just make sure it was her favorite when she was younger.
Show cartoon clips famous during the 60s and 70s
Bring out the child in the birthday celebrant by showing cartoon clips famous during her childhood. Present cartoon shows during the 60s and 70s, such as Saturday Morning Cartoons, Casper, Mighty Mouse, Go Go Gophers, and George of the Jungle. You will be surprised to see the joy in her eyes as she recollects all the fun times she had during her childhood.
Go with a 50s theme
Get the spirit of 50 during the celebrant’s party by going with the 50s theme. You may encourage her friends and relatives to give their gifts in 50s as much as possible. For example, if she loves music, one can give her 50 songs from her childhood to present in a CD. Another idea is to flash fifty kind words that describe her on screen or display these words on the stage. You can also include in your program to let fifty of her family and friends line up on stage and say one adjective each that best describes the celebrant. It can be serious, sentimental, funny, or crazy to add some spice to the party.
Go for gold
Golden girl is what best describes the celebrant on her 50th birthday, so celebrate the night in gold. Send out gold-themed invitations and encourage guests to wrap their gifts in golden wrappers. Ask invited guests to wear something gold like clothes or accessories. Finally, you can prepare golden songs to be played during the celebration with a golden table setting prepared for everyone.
To make the celebration more unique and sentimental, you can hold the party in an exceptional place. You can hold it in the celebrant’s ancestral house, on a ferry, at her vacation house, or in a more distinguished hotel. This day only comes once in her lifetime, so make sure you give the best party ever to a special woman in your life.
