Surprise 50th Birthday Party Ideas

October 11, 2010

Party BalloonsI need some ideas on a 50th surprise birthday party for my husband. There is a catch, it is on 31 December, and he is a pastor so our church service for New Year's eve will start at 22h00. Please help I want to make it special. I can have it on the 30th though.

Here's my take on a 50th Surprise Birthday Party: Invite the party boy or girl to your house. Using garden stakes, create a timeline along the path to your front door noting 10 (1 for every 5 years) special moments in his or her life. The timeline will give the person a sense that something is up, but won't give them enough time to bolt. When you answer the knock at the door, be sure to hold up the last garden stake with the date and "So and so's Surprise Birthday Party!" written on it. It's fun to keep the garden stakes, and even use them in the garden.

My husband is turning 50 on the Boxing Day! I would like to throw him a surprise party. As it's a busy time of the year, I can't think what to do for him!

I might even be late to arrange something. Any ideas please?

Im not sure I know what the Boxing Day is, Are you talking about professional Boxing like the sport? As far as surprise party ideas, I would consider inviting his friends and coworkers for a private luncheon maybe. At his favorite restaurant or if you have the space have caterers come to your home with his favorite type of foods. As far as the guests, Ask them to bring a greeting card to be given at a later date but have it be personal reflecting how they know each other or when they became friends then once you collect all the cards you can mail them to him individually through out the year so that from time to time he will get an encouraging card in the mail out of the blue.

Boxing Day is December 26th, the day after Christmas. I believe it is an English holiday more than anywhere else.

I am trying to organise my hubby's 50th birthday surprise. I need to keep the cost down as much as possible. There will be no alcohol because we don't drink. He loves bright colours, yellow, blues, colours that stands out.
