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!
You could get small whisks, smaller the better, craft stores often carry them, filled the inside with chocolate kisses then wrap tulle around it and tie with thin ribbon at the bottom of the handle. On a small styro ball paint a face and hair.Insert snugly on the handle of each whisk. Tie a large bow with wide stiff ribbon for wings and tape or glue to tulle for a sweet, cooking angel. Add a tag with name date and birthday wishes
Make items that can be "consumed" instead of items that have to be displayed or stored: items such as personalized candy bars, cookie pops with your sister's initials, etc. Another idea is to clean out some medicine bottles, fill with M&M's or Skittles, then affix labels with a "prescription" on how loving God, living well, treating others with love and dignity, allowed (your sister's name) to reach 60! (An incentive!). Hope these ideas help! Blessings.
For my former mother-in-laws 90th birthday her kids found small jars that looked kind of like the old time mason jars that had the wire that went over the glass lid to hold the lid on. They filled the jars with small candies and typed up labels with her name, date, and 90th birthday on it. Then around the neck of the jar they tied pastel colored ribbon about 1/4" wide. These made nice keepsakes for the people attending.
