A 50th birthday is a major step, and it’s one that people love to celebrate. Where 21st birthday parties tend to be a blur that most people prefer to forget, and 30ths tend to be awkwardly celebrated, 50th birthday parties are a great time to celebrate in style.
Most 50 year olds are confident and in control of their lives, and are financially secure. This means that they can pick a birthday party that is perfectly suited to them, rather than bowing to someone else’s ideas. Even better, there are plenty of 50th birthday decorations that you can select to personalize your birthday party.
50th birthday balloons. Balloons are fun at any type of party, whether it’s a Christening, a wedding, or a Hallowe’en bash. They’re always great to add a bit of quick and easy décor to brighten up a party. Best of all, they come in a variety of styles. If you head down to your local party shop, you should be able to buy some balloons that are relevant to a 50th birthday party.
50th birthday invitations. While many people tend to simply send out e-mail invitations these days, postal invitations have a bit of class. Consider buying some specially designed 50th birthday party invitations and send these out to your friends.
You should be able to find a variety of styles, but if you can’t find one to suit you, try making your own. You can print some off using your computer, or make some using pretty paper and other 50th birthday decorations.
A birthday cake and candles. What fun is a party without a fabulous cake? Turning 50 is a time to celebrate, so make a cake that reflects your age. You might be able to pick one that has a 50th birthday decoration on it, or one that is shaped like the numbers five and zero. If you prefer your cakes plain rather than decorated, you can also purchase candles that are shaped like numbers.
50th birthday dress ups. If you’re going to celebrate, you might as well do it in style. There are all sorts of fun 50th birthday decorations that you can wear, or make your guests wear. Consider purchasing a 50th birthday tiara, or wearing a badge that advertises your new age.
50th birthday cups and plates. Paper plates are a common accessory at a big party, as they’re easy to put away when the night is over. Consider buying plates and cups that are decorated. You should also be able to find 50th themed napkins that you can use. You could also put stickers or decorative numbers on cups and glasses to tie them in with the theme.
You only turn 50 once, so you should make the effort to make your night yours. Invest in some of these decorations, and your party will look fabulous and perfectly on theme. 50th birthday decorations can be easily obtained only or at your local party store or variety store, so there’s no excuse not to make the most of your big night.
