Amazing theme ideas for 60th birthday party
When you are planning a 60th birthday bash, its better to choose a theme that honors and reflects the honoree’s favorite eras, vitality and lifelong accomplishments.
Casino / Black-Tie theme
Sending out casino-themed invites to your guests is very popular for celebrating a milestone birthday. Ask your guests to dress up in formal black-and-white attire. You can decorate the party room walls and the event venue with casino-themed movie posters. Using black-and-white tablecloths and table settings with at least one elegant gold or silver-star centerpiece is another brilliant idea for celebrating the 60th birthday. You can purchase less expensive fedoras or gangster hats, and even tiaras and keep them ready. Once your guests arrive, hand them over the same. Along with champagnes and non-alcoholic ciders, you can serve your guests delicious and elegant hors d’oeuvres (snacks or appetizer) and main dishes. Arrange the party room for playing poker, blackjack, bingo and other popular games. You can give away your guests lots of play money to keep things playful, interesting and entertaining.
Explain the theme of your party and request your guests to adhere to the dress code. Ask them to be attired in the outfits reminiscing those of 1970s or 1980s. This will make the party nostalgic. Now decorate the party room with the honoree’s favorite celebrities of the era. Huge and life-size cutouts or pictures of Raj Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Dev Anand, Hema Malini can be hung in the party room. Tie the nostalgic theme with door curtains and string lights, jukebox centerpieces and pinatas, celebrity statuettes, plastic records, music-note balloons and rock ‘n’ roll confetti. Purchase and keep the 1970s and 1980s music CD’s ready to play at the party. You can even hire a caterer who can complement the theme and prepare exact quantity of food for the guests. Setting up a dessert table with vintage candies and bars will make the party even more lively.
Old pictures theme
Inviting old classmates, friends and co-workers from different phases of the honoree’s life is another great idea to celebrate. Try finding old photos or pictures and then frame them. Now make use of them as table centerpieces. And decorate the party room with current photos and awards along with vintage memorabilia from various stages of the honoree’s life. Serve the honoree’s choicest delicacies and desserts. The cake can be decorated with a collage illustration depicting the honoree’s personal and professional accomplishments.
Enjoy and celebrate your milestone birthday with these theme ideas.
