Go to the library and print off a newspaper (at least the front page) and surprise him with the news of "his day".

Do some Special things for him like putting his name, age, and birthday on a Coke bottle. I also took a picture of my hubby and put it on some MM'S.Your in invitations can be designed online with his favorite thing on it. How about putting his picture on the cake. I'm also having some of his close friends and several Pastors give encouraging words at the dinner. Don't forget to decorate with his favorite colors. Involve the family, especially the grandchildren. It's all about him and making him Feel Special! Love on him whatever way you can make every moment memorable. He will never forget all your efforts.

You could play, "How well do you know__________?" Ask questions about your husband. The person who answers the most correctly wins a prize.

Wow! Happy birthday to your hubby!! He's never had a party before? I think the games should represent all the parties he missed growing up...like play pin the tail on the donkey, drop clothespins into milk bottles, then truth or dare (a clean version or regular depending on the party vibe), then trivia games from 60 years events to today. If it is a limber crowd you could even throw in a rousing game of Twister!

Birthday blessings!!! Enjoy!!

Hello! I am not sure how such a party would be received in your area, but here is an idea I sent in here a while back:

As it is a "60" party, you can simply leave off the zero and make it a 6th birthday party. XD

Whatever you do, I hope you all have a lot of fun!

Cut out rectangles from colored paper & draw a flower on the front or other design. Fold the rectangle in half, so that it will stand up on a table. On the cards, write a question and answer about the celebrant's life, such as "Where was ___ born?" And then write the answer. Or where they first learned to drive. Questions can be trivia or major events in their life. We did this recently at a party, with the cards displayed on a gala table. We also wrote a birthday song with the words printed out so everyone could join in the chorus. You can write words to an already-familiar tune. If you know anybody that plays a musical instrument, definitely let them give a musical tribute (short) to the celebrant. Take a group photograph and make copies later on to give one to everybody.

It comes down to two things. What she likes and what she would like to have. If she has collected something in the past or decorates with a particular thing she will like it. If she hasn't seen family in a while or some of the family is too far away then a scrap book with current pictures of everyone in the family will be very special. People too far away will be able to send you pictures via internet or mail.

I have been married to my wonderful husband for 3 months and his 60th is 2 months from now. Having known him for only 1.5 years, I have no idea where to start on a party for him. His divorce was very bitter and he only has a couple of good friends, one of whom I have met. Any party ideas? I want to make him feel loved and special. He is a quiet, rather stoic person by nature, but very sentimental. An act of kindness makes him tear up.

Thank you!

Well, if he's likely to get all teary, perhaps a private function would be best? Why not plan a meal of his favourite foods and invite his favourite people? Small, intimate ...?

I am turning 60 in April. I plan to have an adult, all women, tea party first. I really want to have something really unusual for this and my party party. I want for the tea party that my daughter who models and dances is a part of it. But I don't have a theme. We are going to have the hats, gloves, and dresses, along with tablecloths and napkins. My tea cups are all different, nothing is the same, so I know it is shabby chic. Please give me ideas. I want to have everything in order by April 1. My husband made a suggestion of Southern Comfort or Madri Gras. Please help!


Thanks.

If your guests all will drink alcohol how about pouring margaritas from the teapot. No one will expect that!

Have your guests wear one black rose (dollar store) in their lapels or their hair. Make the cake black and white with 60 tiny red roses. Then so that he is well "Red (Read), order him a fake news paper and put the stories of his life that they will print on the wall behind the cake. You might want to order two, as you can turn each page over and display that story, too. I hope that helps. You can find the companies that make them by googling fake news paper and this is a good start. www.google.com/search?q=fake+newspaper&source=lnms...

I would like to arrange a party for my wife. I intend hiring a hall and will have around 50 guests, including four 3-5 year olds, 4 teenagers, and the rest mums and dads and friends (similar age).

But what about a theme? I have read some on the net. Any success stories?

How about a theme around her interests:
Gardening: have flower pots as centerpieces with silk flowers,tools for gardening and seeds are some of the fillers. Have her cake on a garden cart, napkin rings with ribbon and silk flower.

Crafts: any items she could use as fillers, paint brushes, paint, material for sewing crafts. For painting items you can use white freezer paper and make cheap table runners by "spilling paint". For the sewing gal, use buttons like confetti, tape measures (cloth ones) for ribbons around napkins, or jars and use them to put flowers in. My mom's 80th is coming up and I am doing the garden theme. You can also do birdhouses and greenery. A lot of these items can be purchased at the dollar stores or thrift stores.

"Zero to 60 in no time flat." My husband is a car nut, so it was a perfect theme. Cake had a race car with streaks in the back making it look like it was going fast. I really didn't do anything else, but there are many car related ideas.
