Question: Ideas For 2 Year Old's Golden Birthday

My little girl will be turning 2 in October and it is also her golden birthday. I would really like to go all out for her birthday but have no clue what theme I should go with. I tossed around the idea of everything being gold from the table cloth to the cake but I'm not sure if that is for a two year old.

You can also look up the significance of the number 22. If you are not into guns (i.e.. 22 calibre pistols), I'm sure that doing a quick google search can help you with some other less militant ideas, such as coming up with a trivia game about all things 22!

Question: Ideas for a 16th Golden Birthday

What should I do for my 16 year-old son's golden birthday? He's turning 16 on the 16th. He acts disinterested, but I think if nothing special happens, he will be disappointed. What should I do?

My son is 19 now. From about ages 7 to 16 we invited as many friends as we could afford to the movie of his choosing, complete with popcorn, beverages and candy. We go later in the evening so they feel like they're staying out late, but they will have already eaten so you don't have to feed them a meal too. We see the movie too but we sit away from them and we can still keep an eye on them.

Only once have I had to get up and go sit behind them to keep them from being disruptive (they were about 12). Enjoy the day too, Mom and Dad. Your boy is growing up! Just don't embarrass him. ;)

If it's all girls, take them to the nearest beauty school for manicures - it's inexpensive & fun! Then hand out goody bags with lip gloss, brushes, & other beauty items - look at the dollar store or at

    Why do you think it's his golden birthday? The way I remember it's when the person turns the age of the day they were born... for example, turning 12 on the 12th of Oct.

    A pal from work is taking her daughter & 2 of her friends for a manicure. A less expensive option would be to buy 3 to 5 bottles of nail polish (check the markdowns in RiteAid or Walmart). Have them do each others nails, facials, hair whatever.
    Google "Making Fairies in a Jar". Jars, glow sticks & glitter (dollar store or less) Saw this idea last night & it is really cute!

    It's will be my daughter's golden birthday, she's turning 7 on Dec 7th. I'm completely clueless on what I should do or what I should plan. I want it to be her day. We have a huge extended family so I am debating whether or not I should make one for all and invite everyone or just a special event only for her and us (her family) to celebrate together.

    RE: Ideas for 6 Year old Daughter's Golden Birthday Party

    I've never heard of a golden birthday, but I would wrap or spray paint everything possible gold. Chocolate coins, gold plastic beads and jewelry... (08/05/2004)

    By Linda

    RE: Ideas for 6 Year old Daughter's Golden Birthday Party

    From what I've read, your golden birthday is the same age as your date. If you were born on the 9th, your 9th birthday would be your golden birthday. If this is the case, our birthday girl was born on the 6th. So golden birthdays can be from your 1st to your 31st depending on which day you were born. If this is wrong, please let us know.

    RE: Ideas for 6 Year old Daughter's Golden Birthday Party

    I have heard of golden birthdays and am looking for ideas for my daughters golden birthday. Not only her golden, but her 16th as well. Needs to be a very special day. One gift idea is to give a sentimental piece of jewelry using her birthstone (pearl) and gold. As well as decorating everything gold. Even the cake. See for cool ideas using wrapped candy.

    How many children should be invited to a 6 year old party? (07/09/2005)

    By countrybottoms

    RE: Ideas for 6 Year old Daughter's Golden Birthday Party

    My daughter will also be celebrating her 6th/golden birthday this year. My plan is to take her and her friends to a water-park. They have tables so I will bring food and decorations there. I will emphasize the "golden" by having gold plates, cups, napkins, tablecloth etc. I will also have a sign made for her that will be gold and white. She will wear a gold crown and I will purchase her a piece of gold jewelry. (07/27/2005)

    RE: Ideas for 6 Year old Daughter's Golden Birthday Party

    Susan, you are correct. A golden birthday is when your birth date matches the age you are. I turned 17 on the 17th. (way back when...)

    My daughter will be turning 6 in September. She either want's to go to the Rain Forest Cafe with some friends or have a princess party. There are companies who will come into your house with dress up clothes for the girls and serve a tea party. Very cute.

    You might just want to ask your child their preference. They seem to really have strong opinions at that age. (08/01/2005)

    RE: Ideas for 6 Year old Daughter's Golden Birthday Party

    The birthday you ladies are talking about with the date and the age your turning being the same is actually called your "Champagne Birthday" (09/24/2005)

    RE: Golden Birthday Party Ideas

    I'd just be very careful that I didn't start something. i don't want to have to out-do myself every year to make sure my child's birthday is more and more spectacular. (11/14/2005)

    By Mary

    RE: Golden Birthday Party Ideas

    Wow, I had never heard about a golden birthday before now. I'm already getting excited about mine that is so far away. You Could try to go with a mostly gold theme but use a lot of birthday stuff like the birthday kids birth flower, birth stone and sign. Use gold balloons, table cloth, ribbons, plates and everything. Use gold pipe cleaner and star garland for decorative touches. paint fake roses gold and put them in a vase.

    Buy an assortment of gold colored beads and let kids make gold necklaces. play guess the amount of gold coins in a jar. play gold tag where the kid who is it puts gold body glitter on there hands and try to tag the other players that way if your tagged but the gold isn't visible your not it. spray paint little stones gold and have a gold hunt.

    Serve the most golden food you can think up. Gold raisins, carrots, macaroni and cheese, sparkling apple cider and for cake you can make a regular cake and you can get gold icing from special kits and food coloring. Or you could just make it yellow with sprinkles and golden candles.

    For take home goodies. Get gold party favor bags filled with things like roll-os, chocolate coins, gold Hersey's kisses, gold body glitter, gold jewelry (not real), gold charms (not real either), gold stickers, gold gel pens, fools gold (pyrite) and any other gold doodads. There's a lot of gold christmas ornaments that would be great for this and or decorations.

    I hope your daughter had a great golden birthday that leaves her with some golden memories. (11/14/2005)

    RE: Golden Birthday Party Ideas

    I would make it just her and a few friends. As far as the number to invite, I've heard the number of guests equals the age of the child. I am a mother of 4 and have found out the hard way that the kids are often happiest with their friends and/or close family and fun but unstructured activities planned. Anytime I planned the parties in great detail, the kids would be happiest swinging in the back yard and just hanging out. I also learned that the skating, bowling, etc parties aren't as expensive as they seem since they do everything for you and clean up too! Have fun but remember that what a child wants is often much simpler than what we think. (11/15/2005)

    I am looking for ideas for a teen's golden birthday.

    Lala from Highland, IN

    RE: Golden Birthday Party Ideas

    On a golden birthday I would use everything that symbolizes the day such as birth silk flowers in vases, fake birth gemstone look alikes for around namkin rings and decorations, the birthday kids favorite color mixed with golden balloons, There zodiac animal and astrology sign. You could play games with something simlare to the astrology such as crab races for cancer, three foot race with 2 people for gemini and so on. the birthday girl/boy favorite food and lots of gold. A golden masked ball is another good fun idea. (10/11/2006)
