I'm starting my planning early for my mother's 75th birthday party in May, 2013. I'm having a time deciding what to do. My daughter suggested whatever theme we go with, we ought to use her birthstone color which is emerald.
My sisters and I thought of a masquerade of some sort. We don't want it to be formal, but we don't want it to be jeans and a tee either. The party definitely has to be fun, lively, silly (almost), yet unique. Any ideas?

My neighbor (who turned 80 in January) was treated to a surprise luncheon at a local restaurant. The highlight of the event was the movie of her young life as a mother through to becoming a great-grandmother. There was not a dry eye in the house and she said she has watched it many times, laughing and crying the whole time.
If you have someone who can pull this together from old movies, photos, etc. and have each child narrate throughout the video, it will be a priceless gift for her. (05/23/2009)
The theme could be all about what life was like 75 years ago when she was born. Get some poster board and be creative with putting how much things were, what the styles were, the music, things that were happening. Include as many pictures of her that you can from over the years (when she was 5 years old a loaf of bread cost x $$ and and this singer sung). Serve foods and treats that would have been popular in her generation. Play music at the party from that era. (05/23/2009)
