70th Birthday Party Ideas for Ladies

Seventy year old ladies will enjoy a luncheon celebration!
1. Invitation List – Invite less than 10 best buddies.
2. Food – Arrange the meal with a local restaurant.
3. Transport – Hire a driver or recruit volunteers to provide transportation for each guest to and from the party. Buy a wrist corsage or a surprise to be presented to each friend. Boas and pearls are great fun too.
4. Decorations – Simply framed copies of old photographs of the guests can serve as decorations and mementos of the occasion. Or use magazines from the 1940’s and 1950’s as your decor. These old magazines are great topics for conversation and are available at many thrift stores as well as antique shops. Christmas tree pearl strands and old pearl costume jewelry on stick trees decorate a table in style.
5. Themes – Ladies of all ages enjoy a hat party. “White gloves and hat” is a fun theme for the invitation and attire! Outrageous hats and formal gloves make great party photographs.

70th Birthday Party Ideas for Men

Most seventy year old men like to be roasted by their friends.

2. Ideas – Be sure to video the event so that he can enjoy again and again. In addition, you can show a short video of the life of the birthday boy during the evening. Do not try to schedule this showing. Turn it on and let guests watch at their leisure. These videos are easy to make. In fact, most of the large discount stores have photography departments that will make the video for you. You simply provide the photographs. You have now created two videos that will become treasures in the family for years to come.
