Turning 50 is a big event in anyone’s life – so is turning 2 or 27 and all the numbers in and around for that matter, but we’re talking about 50 here. You wake up one morning and realize that you have actually existed for half a century on the planet. If you’re the reflective sort, you lie in bed and think of all the things you did, all the people you knew, and all the changes and innovations that took place in this time. Life may seem a lot easier fifty years onwards.
Like I said to my Ma the other night, you don’t have to do a thing anymore – you have American dish-washers, German washing-machines, Italian Jacuzzis, and Japanese Toilets to do it all for you. Sometimes it feels like living in Charlie Chaplin’s ‘Modern Times’. Sometimes it feels too darned complicated. And I’m not even 50 yet. But I will be one of these days; people in my family have lived to be 90, so it’s a strong possibility I’ll be 50 on the way to 93. Anyway, so I was wondering what kind of birthday celebration I would have on turning 50 and looked around the Internet for inspiration.
Here are some 50th birthday party ideas I came across:
The Fifties Style Birthday Party:
Throw a fifties style birthday party. Ask all the guests to come dressed in fifties style dresses, with fifties style hair-dos. Play music from the 1950s and serve the kind of menu that was popular back then.
