Throwing a Milestone Birthday Party

A milestone birthday is any birthday of significance, whether it is 16, 21, 25 or any number ending in a zero. The most important consideration is the milestone age. A 16 year old will not want the same birthday party as someone turning 80! It is also a good idea to make sure that the birthday boy or girl wants a party. Are they accepting this new age gracefully?

70th Birthday InvitationsA milestone birthday is a time to celebrate. As we age, each birthday becomes seemingly less important. Nothing can rival our birthdays as children. We may not have a party for every birthday, but those milestone birthdays are the time to celebrate!

A milestone birthday party is usually going to be a big event. Friends and family should all be invited to share in such a special occasion. This means that the party should be held in a large space which usually means holding the party in a hall or reception site. This can be costly, but is usually worth it in order to not have to clean up after a party!

Consider doing something special for the birthday boy or girl. Perhaps a slideshow of their life or a collage that showcases the most important events will make a special statement. If you really want everyone to remember such a special occasion, then order party favors to give out. These can be personalized with the name of the birthday boy or girl and a special message!

Remember to handle all of the standard party planning such as food, drink, decorations, and music. A large party will need a caterer or if money is tight then consider a potluck!
