It is time to celebrate! Is a 70th birthday celebration coming up soon for you or someone special? Don’t miss this opportunity to gather friends and family for a memorable time honoring the 70 year old.
When I approached 70, I began planning to have a party for friends and family who had helped, guided, and loved me over the years. First, the date of my birthday was on a weekend, so I called a local restaurant and had a preliminary detailed discussion, including reserving a private room.

& I worked on the wording of the invitations, the guest list, the decorations and all the fun details for the evening. Sadly, it never happened! Soon I discovered that our local University had a home ball game that night, which would present traffic problems for an evening party and accommodation limitations as well. Needless to say, I was so disappointed. Now, I will work toward my 75th!

I think the photo props may be the most important decorations of all — your guests will have fun posing with the different props and the photos themselves will be great to include in your thank you notes.

I found a great collection of 70th birthday gifts at Granny Geek’s Blog !   You might think about gifts she would especially appreciate if she has one of those aggravating senior conditions so many of us struggle with.  As seniors, tho, we do have the right to jump from serious to silly in a quick minute.  You can be practical or totally ridiculous!
