Throwing an amazing birthday party with 60th birthday party activities
A milestone worth celebrating with friends and family is definitely a 60th birthday. For throwing an amazing birthday party you need not spend loads of money or stress yourself over planning the party. Instead of this you can try adapting classic party activities that will suit the occasion.
- If the guest of honor has a good sense of humor, try roasting him / her. Generally, at a roast, guests try telling funny and memorable stories about the person whose birthday is being celebrated. Roasts can be either touchy and mild or raunchy and comical. Most of the time, speeches are prepared beforehand, but you can have guests taking turns speaking off the top of their heads. A roast is often fun and entertaining, as long as you keep the birthday boy / gal in mind. Know his / her sensibilities so that you don’t offend or embarrass.
- Tailoring the classic game of charade themes at a 60th birthday party is a brilliant idea. And for this you need to choose phrases that relate to the guest of honor’s birth year or decade. A lot many options are available and you can choose books, favorite foods, movies, memorable song lyrics, television shows or famous quotes. Take for example, if he / she was born in the year 1950, you can use “The Lone Ranger” or “I Love Lucy.” No specific equipment or supply is required for playing this game, only few bits of paper and pens or pencils will do.
- Karaoke is fun and most people enjoy it, even if few of them are a bit shy. You can ask the guests to pick a song from the year or decade in which the guest of honor was born and then sing to him / her. And for doing this activity you need a microphone or mike, a stereo player, CDs or a pen drive loaded with old songs from the era, and the lyrics of the songs. If you can spend some extra bucks, rent a karaoke system from a party-vendor or party-shop.
