50th Birthday Party Ideas

Warning! Before you start gathering 50th birthday party ideas, make sure you know your guest of honor's feelings about hitting the big 5-0.

This is especially important if you want to be on speaking terms after the big day's over!

If you think he/she would prefer not to be reminded of his/her wrinkles, bags and ever-increasing nearness to death, better opt for a generic birthday bash.

If, on the other hand, he/she can laugh about getting older, feel free to roast away.

50th Birthday Themes

50th Birthday Party Ideas for Special Venues

Have your event at an unusual venue:
  • a bowling alley (would be great for a 1950's theme)
  • on a boat (a "booze cruise")
  • rent an area in a baseball or football stadium (arrange to put a birthday message on the scoreboard)
  • arrange to meet in a city or on a college campus that was special to everyone
  • rent an art gallery
  • book a castle or other fabulously outrageous place (search wedding facilities
    for great lists)
Plan a scavenger hunt that takes the guests on a tour of the birthday guy's or gal's favorite spots in the city (the local donut shop, a favorite store, a childhood haunt, and so on), the last stop being a celebration at their favorite restaurant.

Hire a limo to drive everyone to a favorite beach for the day (or weekend if you can swing it)

Arrange for a group lesson of an activity you know he or she would love to learn how to do (sky diving, skiing or knitting perhaps?) and then spend the day DOING it!
