50th Birthday Parties and Lasting Memories

Personalize your own 50th Birthday Mint Tin Favor

How can we measure our blessings over the expanse of fifty years? As we move into our next personal, half-centuries, those of us who are turning fifty this year look back and realize that it’s only natural to recall special birthdays- our milestones. We fondly recall fully-decorated events. Those memories move forward in time with us.

Do you remember a certain childhood birthday party? What made it special? Did your parents devote extra attention to the details? Maybe their labors of love extended to your dearest companions. Parties were magical affairs filled with colorful balloons, glistening streamers, and exuberant, hot potato games. The children wore party hats, blew noisemakers, and carried home goody bags brimming with party favors. If you were a child in the 1960’s, you might remember the mandatory dresses and ties. Fortunately, some things do change!

Oh, to be a teenager in the seventies, again. Romantic hearts were as big as the hair and the patterns on dresses and ties were as groovy as our parents’ family room curtains. Vinyl albums played through the night as girls spun the bottle to see who’d confess to having crushes on Shaun Cassidy. Reliving the retro party era is dreamy!

Band sounds of Chicago and Boston remind us of the big cities we visited with dates in those years. Our city party theme decorations capture the essence of what solidifies relationships. Couples enjoy gazing at city lights, while talking for endless hours about the future and dreams.

For a mother, the moments that touch the soul are cradling your sleeping baby, listening to the first sounds of “Mama”, or feeling little hands clutching your pinkies while learning how to walk. Then too, are the first friends, the play dates, and the planning of your own children’s parties. So many beautiful memories accompany these years. Baby showers and themed birthday parties were so fun to plan.

Shindigz customers are the most fun people we know. You make life extra special for your friends and family. Celebrate a special 50th birthday with bits and pieces of the above eras. Decorate each room to match a certain decade.  Invite guests to gaze at old pictures and sample favorite foods or drinks from your honoree’s personal journey.  By decorating five rooms, the entire party becomes a collection of fifty years!

May your loved one’s 50th birthday milestone create fond, new memories!

A Special 50th Birthday Wish:

Happy 50th Birthday! Turning 50 is the big milestone age. Is it time for an Over The Hill 50 party?  If you’re the guest of honor at a big 5-oh birthday party, consider using these 50th birthday slogans and sayings on your big day:

I Love my 50′s, because I know what comes next? My 60′s!
I’m not 50, I’m 19 with 31 years experience!
Due to budget cuts, the light at the end of my tunnel has been turned off.
I can’t believe I’m 50; 49 maybe, but never 50!
Once over the hill, you pick up speed.
At 50 you’ll have the choice of many temptations, but being 50 also means you’ll probably choose the option that gets you home earliest.
My own mortality will be the death of me yet.
50 year old; one owner; needs parts; make offer.
In dog years I’m dead.
You’ve accumulated the knowledge of 50 years on this planet. Now if only the senility hadn’t wiped it all away.
I’m chronologically gifted!
At 50 he’s seen it all, done it all………. but can’t remember most of it!
Aged like fine wine, complex & fruity.
Before I turned 50 I used to jog 6 miles a day now I know a short cut.
Happy 50th birthday! Your wild oats have just turned to porridge.
I’m not old, I’m youthfully challenged.
Happy 50th Birthday. Let’s crack open a bottle of prune juice.
Are we the grownups yet?

It’s not about age, it’s about attitude.

After you’re 50 if it doesn’t hurt it probably doesn’t work.
If you remove all the wisdom and experience in the world of people over 50 then there wouldn’t be enough left to run it!
Getting old stinks, but it sure beats the alternative.
50! I demand a recount.
It’s just my birthday, I’m not extinct yet!
It’s after sixty that everything that doesn’t hurt doesn’t work!
Yes, me – Charter member, “Old farts hall of fame”.
Fifty is the ultimate “F” word.
50 years old. Bodywork and mechanics need slight attention. Runs on gas.
My wild oats have turned to mush.
Old fart, young heart.
Aged to perfection!
I’m a classic, you only get better with age!
Don’t interrupt me while I’m talking to myself.
Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.
Age equals wisdom – hear this youngin’s?
I’ll be spontaneous when I get around to it.
Growing old is inevitable. Growing up is optional.
I get everything I set my mind to. Now where’d I set my mind?
I have the body of a god – Buddha!
I’ll be kind to my kids; they’ll be choosing my nursing home.
I’m immortal — so far!
50 years old or 18,250 days young!
I will avenge myself and live long enough to be a problem to my kids!
Which sounds better, 5 decades or half a century?
I’m cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.
Happy 1/2 way to 100!
Age is not a destination, it’s a journey!
AND – He may rule the roost, but I rule the rooster!
