You could find pictures of your mother from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and so on. Make posters using the pictures and other sayings, fads, photos, etc. that are representative of that decade. Also, you could have cocktails and appetizers that were trendy during those decades displayed in front of the posters. For example, the 40s would be when she was a child. Kool-aid, punch etc. was popular back then. The 80s were all about champagne, wine and cheese. You get the idea. (09/17/2007)

I'm doing centerpieces with items from my mom's life in the center of each table. I'm going to make little vignettes. For example, she still had her first baby doll, the cake topper from her wedding cake, a prize she won in high school for a home economics class. I'm going to try and arrange the stuff under glass so it can't get messed up. I'm hoping it'll be a little conversation starter for everyone. (06/14/2008)

I am having a surprise Prom themed party for my mom's 60th. The cheesy balloon arch for "Prom Pictures" of the guests, carnation centerpieces, a DJ that will play 50's music, the crowning of the Prom King and Queen (my mom and dad), etc. Hopefully it will be a good time. Hope this helps. (07/05/2008)

My family is throwing a surprise 60th for my mom. We custom ordered invitations in chocolate brown/hot pink. These will be the theme colors for the party. We have rented a party truck that makes all gourmet pizza's in the brick ovens right off the back of the truck. They also supply salad, cappuccino, and gelato. We will have guests bring appetizers or desserts if they ask what to bring. We have ordered stainless steel individually boxed pizza cutters for favors.

The tables will be decorated with hot pink cloths and the centerpiece will be a wine glass filled with whole coffee beans (chocolate brown) and a votive candle lit in each. The stem will have a faux hot pink Gerber daisy and matching bow. We are making a tree by painting a branch and then cutting out different size 6s and 0s and placing pictures of my mom through the years in them and hanging them on the tree. We have also ordered brown and pink balloons.

We ordered a picture of the 3 grand kids specially framed and personalized with "Mimi's girls" on the bottom and all the kids are dressed in chocolate, brown, and pink. We have also custom ordered a chocolate mousse cake with hot pink icing. There will be Italian music playing in the background and we will buy red/white wine and place custom labels on them with a picture of mom and date of party. We are playing some games and have thought about playing something that was popular during the 1950's.

We are going to give out retro candy (Mary Janes, dots on paper, etc.) for game prizes. We have also researched and printed up some fun facts from the 1940-50's and will frame and place them on the tables for guests to enjoy. I hope all this helps. Happy party planning. (10/04/2008)

We are having a 60th birthday party for our mom this weekend. A surprise. We hired a male stripper that will dress as a nerd and be disguised as a DJ. I think it will be hilarious. (10/28/2008)

Great ideas on here. I plan to have rainbow-colored decorations to signify the 60s and because my mom likes rainbows. I've also got a rainbow colored trivia game where people have to fill in blanks about my mom, and a rainbow collage with my mom's name spelled out with adjectives for each letter (ex. A for amazing, ambitious, affectionate) and around it are images that reflect her, like a Scorpio sign, a salsa dancer, avocado (she loves em), Statue of Liberty (she lived in NY), hippy cartoon, the Beatles, etc. The cake will be rainbow. We will also have some photographs of her younger years, plus photos today. I was originally going to do a Sweet 60, but now it is a bit more of Nifty 60s. (11/12/2008)

My sister an I are throwing my mom a "sexy sixty" party. We're playing "pin the perkies" instead of pin the tail. (01/20/2009)

I did my own 60th. My theme was, "'It's my party and I'll cry if I want to', but I've decided to celebrate, so come celebrate with me". It was a great party, so many people thought that my idea was a lot of fun. Had music from the 50's and 60's. Great time for everyone (02/13/2009)
