bean bag : 50th Birthday Party Ideas

Is a 50th birthday party coming up and you're at a loss for ideas? Here are a few tips and ideas to help you get started.

You can create your own invitations by drawing 50th birthday theme such as "50" or over-the-hill gag themes.

A great themed 50th birthday party is 60's memorabilia. Have beanbag chairs handy for a groovy gathering. Share old stories about the guest of honor.

Be sure to include items such as a "magic bus", peace signs, and candles luminating the room.

Wear your flowered pants, John Lennon glasses and peace sign, or go all out with your leisure suit. Don't forget your hippie wig!

Have the guest of honor wear a birthday crown or Happy Birthday hat. Be sure to complement their outfit with an "over-the-hill" cane

Serve your food of choice on these tie-dyed party plates and tableware. Drinks can be served in psychedelic light up glasses.

An easy choice of games is to play a game of 60's trivia. There are several available including Trivial Pursuit 60s/70s editions.

Play clips from 60's TV shows or movies and competing teams guess first what movie/show the song was from.

60's karaoke is lots of fun and gets everyone laughing.

Complete the night with a Woodstock karaoke and flower power dance contest. Happy 50th!
