Over the Hill Party Ideas

Aug 17, 2007
Many times it is easier to plan a younger birthday party than an event for older and more mature adults. However, there can be fun and exciting party methods designed to bring out the 20something in everyone. When hosting an event of this nature, it may be difficult to achieve its full potential. With the correct decorations, food and entertainment this activity will be one the birthday person will never forget.

The individual who is throwing the gathering must understand what the person likes and does not like. Men and women are different species. Sometimes they enjoy the same methods and other times they do not at all. The first important step is to plan the party accordingly to the individual and invite guests. A surprise can brighten anyone's day. There are theme gatherings that could be simple to put together and will be fun and entertaining for each partygoer.

An individual could throw a conservative and lavish party for those mature adults. Decorations that are designed around an elegant style may be a fantastic choice. The food that is served could be high-class like wine, cheese, caviar and lobster. The cake could be made out of the finest chocolate with a dollar sign and a gold border presented proudly.

Black tie and graceful dresses should be worn by all of the guests. The invitations may be an expensive display of the requirements of this birthday party. This is an excellent suggestion, especially for individuals that do not live in this type of environment.

If the birthday person is feeling a bit down about turning that magical number there are ideas to brighten their spirits. The host could design a theme party as a fantastic child's event. An individual can send out invitations with a picture of a toy car, a super hero or pink unicorn.

These could state that the party guests should bring gifts to reflect the childhood images of the birthday event person. The decorations might be balloons that state the age of 5 and are very colorful. The guests could wear paper party hats and be supplied with silly string.

A banner of the individual's nickname could be displayed and fantasy creatures or toy cars could be flowing throughout the area. The food that is presented could be finger food. Tater tots, hot dogs, BBQ chicken or pizza is great ideas for a makeshift child's bonanza. The cake could proudly display a fire engine, a unicorn or an action figure. For entertainment the party guests could play favorite childhood games like pin the tail on the donkey and Frisbee tag.

If a host of an over the hill party would like the birthday person to feel like they are 21 again there are great methods to achieve this. The decorations are not as important for this theme party but maybe line the walls with beer bottle caps or pizza boxes. The host, instead of filling out written invitations calls each person and tells them to bring a friend.

Parties when younger, were always filled with people the host or birthday individual did not know. The food for this event should be a massive BBQ with tons of meat and potato salad. Plenty of beer, tequila and vodka should be served. For the entertainment some adult dancers and loud music could be the style an
individual is looking for. With all parties, it is vital to have a designated driver when liquor is
abundant.
