Birthday parties for people over 60 years of age tend to be more low key than they were in earlier years. It could be just a family get together at home, a dinner, a special outing or a simple celebration, but the emphasis is more on being with friends and family than on getting together with other people. It’s all about celebrating the individual and their achievements, with friends and relatives gathered together for the day.
The first step in planning your special birthday party is to decide on the style of party you are after. What sort of party will you have? What’s your budget?
A birthday party for a teenager or a young adult could include a number of friends, special music, outdoor activities, and creative games. A 60th birthday party for a family member or close friend might have a more intimate setting, with family members and close friends coming together to celebrate.
A couple of words about entertainment for 60th birthday parties. Try to keep the entertainment suitable for the age group of your party guests. Having a magician, for example, would be fun for some people, but maybe not all.
