I need party favor ideas for my sister's 60th birthday party. My sister is a very low keyed person. Outside of her husband, kids and grandkids, she loves going to church, helping the elderly in the community and cooking for her family and friends.

If your sister is low key and enjoys working with the elderly flower pots for the center pieces would be a wonderful way to spread some joy with the elderly the day after the party. She could extend her birthday by floral gifts for the clients she works with. Also why not invite all her family and friends to share some of their favorite dishes in a carry in and share the recipes in a new book for her to enjoy for years to come. Be sure to take plenty of pics to put into the book also!

Cut out rectangles from colored paper & draw a flower on the front or other design. Fold the rectangle in half, so that it will stand up on a table. On the cards, write a question and answer about the celebrant's life, such as "Where was ___ born?" And then write the answer. Or where they first learned to drive. Questions can be trivia or major events in their life. We did this recently at a party, with the cards displayed on a gala table. We also wrote a birthday song with the words printed out so everyone could join in the chorus. You can write words to an already-familiar tune. If you know anybody that plays a musical instrument, definitely let them give a musical tribute (short) to the celebrant. Take a group photograph and make copies later on to give one to everybody.
I am planning a 60th birthday party for my husband in April. We are having it in the church social hall. Any ideas are welcome to make this his special day. Many thanks.

Hi Gail! Did you get any other 60th birthday party ideas? I'm throwing myself a 60th birthday party next month, and I'm starting to worry that it'll be boring.

Take him on a weekend out,to watch a game that he likes. To watch a movie. Just a drive to No where and spend time together.
I am having a birthday party at a nice restaurant for my hubby who is turning 60. He has never had a birthday party before. I asked adults only, and for it to be an all white attire party. I need a theme and cake decorating ideas please.

Have your guests wear one black rose (dollar store) in their lapels or their hair. Make the cake black and white with 60 tiny red roses. Then so that he is well "Red (Read), order him a fake news paper and put the stories of his life that they will print on the wall behind the cake. You might want to order two, as you can turn each page over and display that story, too. I hope that helps. You can find the companies that make them by googling fake news paper and this is a good start. https://www.google.com/search?q=fak ... 0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1024&bih=653
I would like to arrange a party for my wife. I intend hiring a hall and will have around 50 guests, including four 3-5 year olds, 4 teenagers, and the rest mums and dads and friends (similar age).
But what about a theme? I have read some on the net. Any success stories?

How about a theme around her interests:
Gardening: have flower pots as centerpieces with silk flowers,tools for gardening and seeds are some of the fillers. Have her cake on a garden cart, napkin rings with ribbon and silk flower.
Crafts: any items she could use as fillers, paint brushes, paint, material for sewing crafts. For painting items you can use white freezer paper and make cheap table runners by "spilling paint". For the sewing gal, use buttons like confetti, tape measures (cloth ones) for ribbons around napkins, or jars and use them to put flowers in. My mom's 80th is coming up and I am doing the garden theme. You can also do birdhouses and greenery. A lot of these items can be purchased at the dollar stores or thrift stores.
I am planning a fabulous 60th birthday party. I need some suggestions on an elegant, tall center piece using fresh red and white roses. The vase is tall.
By Fran 10/16/2011
I once received a gorgeous tall arrangement that was stunning. When flowers died, it was interesting to see how the florist rigged it up. The vase was about 3 1/2 feet tall. The inside of the vase had that green florist foam, sponge, or what ever that green stuff they use to stick flowers in, so the flower stems and filler (baby's breath) were not really 4 1/2' tall, but sure looked like it since they were stuck in the florist foam that was snuggly stuffed in the opening of the vase. The flowers were arranged like any other arrangement, lush and very full. Then cascading down the vase here and there was ivy. Very pretty.
We are having an old classmates get-together with dinner along with our spouses to celebrate our 60th birthday.
Could you please give me an idea for a dining table centrepiece using the figures '60' together with some floral decoration. It need not be very elaborate as I need to make around 7 to 10 for the number of dining tables.
Shall appreciate if I could have a favourable response by the 31st May 2013.

I am trying to come with a theme for my mom's 60th surprise party. I am trying to think of something that won't make her feel old and I want it to be fun. I already have the caterer and hall for the party, I just need a theme. Any ideas?

60th Birthday Party Ideas. I'm having a 60th birthday party for my mother. Can you help me with ideas for favors?
I am having a 60th birthday celebration for my mom at a super expensive suite. My dilemma; I have to cut corners on the food. What can I do that I don't have to cook?

Or buy Little Debbie snacks and cut them up. Peanut butter wafers were popular at a church I went to. And duh, birthday cake! :) What was I thinking? (12/05/2009)
Mix cream cheese and sour cream, then add whatever you want, ie chopped olives, shredded cheese, chopped meat, peppers, etc. Spread on tortilla and roll up. When ready to serve, just slice the rolled-up tortilla. Pretty and delicious. (12/08/2009)
