If I were in charge I would be throwing the birthday boy or girl a tenth birthday party all over again. Why not recapture his/her youth? You can find all kinds of decorations at party supply stores that celebrate tenth birthdays and if it is a family party you could go all out and maybe track down some games from childhood and get everyone playing in a tournament of some kind.

I am turning 58 on June 27 and would like to plan something that would cost under $100.

Whatever you do, get someone to get 58 "Different" lottery tickets off different rolls, or from different stores, on the scratch offs. My son did this for me one year and I had a ball.

I won a teeny little bit on scratch offs. It was fun and I got to keep going back to get new ones that said I won a ticket.

A birthday present to remember; of course its better when someone else pays for it too. Happy Birthday.

My volleyball coach, who is an awesome person, is single, and is turning 30. A friend of mine is really serious about hosting some type of party for our coach because she's just that special. We have no idea what to do. She loves volleyball, country music, laughing and all sorts of things.

We would like for it to be fun not too sentimental, that's the job for the gifts. We want her to have fun and make it a memorable birthday. I would love it if anybody had any suggestions that fit her personality or any at all. Thanks!

One of my friends was a soccer fanatic, and his family made him a soccer ball cake using a pyrex bowl rather than a regular cake pan. You could simulate a volleyball with white frosting and then color the lines and words with foodcoloring mixed into some frosting you reserved--or use licorice string? For cheap way to decorate: Put into a small ziplock sandwich baggie and then cut a fairly small tip. You can use this or a frosting kit--(some at grocery stores are disposables but can be washed and used again and again and are very cheap)--to pipe the lines of the ball as well as a birthday message or whatever over the cake. I myself am using the pyrex bowl method to make a volcano cake for my little girl's upcoming luau birthday party. I found this recipe tonight, coincidentally, and it recommends the bowl cake and trimming the cake around its base to give it the appearance of a ball. Check it out; it can easily be used for a soccer ball.
