Is your beloved father turning sixty in the new year? Maybe your grandma is about to turn 85, or perhaps your daughter is about to turn proverbially sweet sixteen.
Whatever the variation of milestone birthday you have coming up, if you have been tasked with the organization of a fabulous birthday celebration, then continue reading for a comprehensive guide to planning the ultimate milestone birthday party.
Location, Location…You Guessed It! Location!
Even though the lockdowns caused by the worldwide coronavirus pandemic of 2020 have finally been lifted and a sense of normality has returned, if you or any other members of your family or friendship group are not overly keen on the idea of venturing out to a busy pub or restaurant, why not hold the party at yours or another loved one’s home.
The beauty of hosting the milestone birthday party at your very own abode are numerous, including the fact that, these days, you don’t even need to bother about organizing drinks, with professional and established Event Bartenders bringing everything you need for the ultimate alcoholic and soft drinks experience directly to your home.
Other advantages of hosting a party at home include, but are not limited to:
- Any younger guests can be put safely to bed and the party can continue
- Safety with regard to health and wellbeing (primarily referring to coronavirus)
- You can set the theme, the décor, including the table and chair covers, and everything else yourself, personalized to the VIP
- The sole attention on your loved one and no one else
- No maximum people allowed or table booking restrictions
Making The VIP Feel Special & Adored
Every birthday of a cherished family member, close friend or other loved one should be solely centered around them and them alone.
With a milestone birthday, however, (especially for a grandparent or other aging relative) it is your duty and responsibility to pull out all the proverbial stops to make them have the best possible day of the year.
A fabulous way to make the guest of honor feel cherished and loved includes the designing and arrangement of a movie montage to be played either on mute in a loop in a corner of a room or, if you really want to make them the center of attention, projected onto a white wall at some point in the evening.
The Perfect Gift
Undeniably, the best birthday present for your loved one on the day of their birthday party is not only something that is personal and meaningful to them, but ideally something more unusual and quirkier that they are unlikely to already own.
Examples of such presents that are a fabulous and different birthday present for any age include a professional popcorn making machine, a home coffee machine, a sweets and chocolate subscription delivery service, a copy of a newspaper from the day and date of the birth of your loved one and a delicious bespoke hamper.
