Charlie S
Celebrating an 80th birthday with a grand party is the most memorable thing in one's life. Apart from the joy of having lived on this beautiful planet for eighty long years, one proudly recollects the sweet memories of the past.
Not all people get the chance of celebrating their 80th birthday party. But, if you are one of those lucky ones, then you should first of all thank god for his kindness. Be happy and cheerful on this special occasion.
If you have any sad memories, worries or difficulties which have made your life difficult, try to forget them and get yourself completely involved in the celebrations.
There are many party ideas for an 80th birthday, but it would be advisable to start the party preparations at least two months in advance. The reason behind taking so much efforts is that we would not like to face any problems at the eleventh hour.
Dispatching invitations early is important so that people can plan their other work accordingly. This important task of sending the invitations should be done by the young members as they are more energetic and enthusiastic.
You can celebrate the party either in your home or in a room booked in a hotel. If you have any more ideas apart from these for the venue, you should go ahead with them. Chose a place which is spacious and has adequate capacity to accommodate all the guests for having refreshments.
You should try to invite all those people whom you love and admire for the party. Such a get-together will increase the feelings of care, compassion and friendship among you and the invited people.
Try to invite the people whom you do not get along well, as this mega celebration may help to break the ice between you and them by forgetting old differences. The guest list should ideally include family members, close friends, distant relatives, colleagues, etc.
Here are some gift ideas: A box full of chocolates, a beautiful painting, bouquet of colorful flowers, perfumes with a nice fragrance, materials related to home interiors, or a luxury car if your budget is high. You can also think of some unique gift ideas to make the person happy.
The feelings associated with the gift are far more important than the price of the gift. Any small gift too can bring a smile on the person's face, if it is associated with love, care and respect.
Decorate the venue with balloons, paintings, flowers, and write the name of the person whose birthday is being celebrated, artistically on the board. Place a board for the visitors to write their comments and feelings about the birthday celebration.
Play some mind-blowing music, which the birthday person likes, to enlighten the atmosphere. Place the cake to be cut on a big table and decorate the cake by writing the name of the birthday person and his age.
At the time of cutting the cake, cheer up the atmosphere and wish the person a very happy birthday!
Hopefully, these ideas will make your job easy. A little effort from your side can make this day unforgettable for the birthday person.
