I need some ideas for a theme for my mother's 50th Surprise birthday party. I don't want to use the same old sayings. Her name is April.

My family is throwing my mom a surprise party for her 50th Birthday. We have rented out our local Country Club and have everything planned and organizes. ALL we have left is figuring out how to get her there? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Well, if you've decided on having it on the day of her party, she's going to suspect every place you take her to will have a surprise party just waiting for her. You could have it the day before, you know, so she's least suspecting. You could say that you met some new friends and they invited you and the family to play golf, (or whatever they do there) and she's invited as well. Then take her there and surprise her. Anyway, hope this helps.

I have to admit, I didn't suspect a thing although I should have when I wanted to stop at a craft store and she "just had to go to the bathroom too bad to stop". Invite her to lunch or dinner, depending on the time of day the party is scheduled or some special time together.

For my mother's 80th Birthday I told her that we were going to a surprise birthday party for the mother of a friend of mine (who my Mother had met and really enjoyed her company). When we arrived my friend was standing outside and told us we had to hurry in because her mother would be there very soon and she was going to bring her in. She also said everyone was waiting with the lights out already so she rushed both of us into the party room. The rest is history.
Well April rhymes with thrill, grill, till, nil, bill. When I had my husbands 50th I had all the guests write a memory of him from years ago or about an attribute. My daughter read them at the party and the birthday boy had to guess who wrote each item. It was loads of laughs and still he likes to read them and reminisce about the good ol days.
For my mom's 50th party we got her down there by making a fake invitation from one of my dad's friends. We slipped it into the mail box and when she saw it, we convinced her to go. When she got there she was so surprised. (12/10/2006)
I am planning a surprise 50th birthday party for my mother in March and I am planning on putting a photo album together of pictures throughout her life with little captions. I have also asked each guest to bring a photo they like of my mom and be prepared to write a caption on a note card to place in the photo album.
Also, I am putting together all the events such as top movies, books and TV shows as well as news events. I have found most of this information online. I will then type this information on some sort of quality paper to put in a book of some kind for her. I may even add it to the photo album.
Good luck. (02/05/2007)
I am throwing my sister a "hot mama" theme for her 50th and we are serving all kinds of Mexican food and the guests will dress like senoritas, cowgirls, cowboys, banditos, etc. We ordered Mexican decorations and 50th birthday decorations, too. The cake is strawberry margarita cheesecake. We'll play salsa music. (03/07/2008)
My brother is turning 50 in 2 weeks. My sister-in-law has rented a party bus that will hold 25 people. We're all getting in the bus and taking him on a trip down memory lane, sort of like a "rolling" roast, so to speak. We're having a blast just planning this. Can't wait for the party. (06/16/2008)
