My daughter will be 10 years old on 10-10-10. I would like to plan a special party for her. I need suggestions for a great 10-10-10 party.
By Misty from Millen, GA
For our 10-10-10 family party on Sunday, we are putting a time capsule together to be sealed and opened in ten years, Everyone is gathering things that are special to them this year and the b-day boy.
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.
She also has a lot of cousins anywhere from ages 9 months to 17. I would like to have activities for all ages to enjoy. I plan on doing an outdoors birthday because the family is so big and it is tough to fit them all in a house. Any help on this matter would sure be appreciated.

What about a "Bee Happy Birthday". You could do black and yellow decorations (like bumble bees) and write everywhere "Bee Happy for ______________ who is turning two today! I am sure you can find bumble bee decorations everywhere or print off your computer. The birthday child could wear a "bee happy" tshirt and you could get tshirts for the other kids or have the kids decorate their own. You could do games like a cake walk (but use bumblebee pictures for the children to walk on. Tell the children to fly like bumblebees while you play music and then stop the music and tell them to freeze. Goody bags could include bumble bee soap/stickers/candy. The birthday cake could be a bumble bee and say "Bee Happy for Susie's birthday!

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!
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 orientaltrading.com.
My husband is 57 and it' will be his golden birthday. What is a great family way to celebrate?
By Debbie Dzurilla 07/29/2014
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.
My daughter will be turning 13 for her Golden Birthday! Please help me with ideas, including for a sleep over.

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!
My daughter is having her golden birthday on Dec. 7th, 2011. Any ideas on what to do? We live in the northwest Indiana.
By Gina O.
I have never heard of a "golden birthday" until I started coming to this site! Well, what are her interests? You can do many things with little girl parties. Dress up party, Princess party, sleepover party...etc.
We are planning our son's 10 year old/golden birthday in January. We rented the basement at our local Moose lodge to accomodate the kids he wants to invite, however we are both stuck on themes and games. We already did football and yugioh which are his two favorite things. I just want to make it a good party for him and any advice would be appreciated thank you.

My granddaughter will be 4 on 11/4/14. We are having a family event, but I am looking for ideas to make it special. It cannot be expensive. It's hard to plan an outdoor event in November. Any ideas; themes, or locations?

Thrifty Fun has been around so long that many of our pages have been reset several times. Archives are older versions of the page and the feedback that was provided then.
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.

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)
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 leave
