Milestone Birthdays: How to Plan the Party of a Lifetime

Kids aren’t the only ones who love parties – adults enjoy them too! If you have a parent, grandparent, special loved one or friend who is about to hit a milestone birthday, you’re probably wondering what you can do in order to make sure that their next birthday is one which they will never forget. Planning a huge birthday party and spending thousands of pounds in order to celebrate a milestone age can be very stressful, which is why we’ve got some great ideas in order to make sure that everything runs as smoothly as possible leading up to and during the special day. confetti party tips

Send Invites Out Early

When it comes to milestone birthday parties, you’ll usually want to invite as many people as possible. Birthdays are the perfect occasion to catch up with old friends and get together with family members who you haven’t seen for a while. But, the problem with getting everybody together is that sometimes, people can’t make it as they’ve already made plans – which is why sending out invitations as early as possible is vital. Some people even go so far as to invite people to the party a whole year before! This might seem crazy, but it’s actually your best bet for making sure that as many people as possible attend, especially when you have an expensive venue or marquee booked to house hundreds of people. Even if you don’t have a year to go before the big day, sending invitations out is the first thing that you should do. cocktails party

Hire a Planner

Finding a venue, decorating it, hiring caterers, selecting entertainment and then managing everything else that comes with planning a massive party for a loved one’s milestone birthday, can be a lot to keep on top of, especially if you’ve got a family to look after and a career to hold down as well. The ideas stage is often the fun part, but do you really want to be running around on the day, stressing about why the band hasn’t showed up yet instead of relaxing and enjoying being the party host. Thankfully, MGN Events and companies like them, have many experienced planners on their team including 18th, 50th and 60th birthday party planners and other milestone birthdays ranging from sweet 16 all the way up to 100. Hiring a party planner is a great way to minimise stress and guarantee that your birthday boy or girl will have the best party ever as its planned by a paid professional who knows all the best tricks in the book to make sure that it’s just as amazing as you’d imagine it to be, they’ll leave you stress and worry free to have a great party. When you’re splashing out thousands on a party, you want to make sure it’s perfect – which is where a professional planner comes in. birthday-cake party food

Party Themes

Party themes are a fantastic idea for any milestone birthday party event. As people get older, many enjoy having black-tie style themes for their birthday parties, so you could pull out all the stops by throwing a glitzy-style party with luxury theming , or even arrange an Oscars-themed event – you could book a celebrity musician for a surprise appearance. When it comes to themes it’s a good idea to talk to your friend or family member – unless the party is a surprise, of course – and ask them which type of party themes that they’d enjoy to see the most. Even if you choose not to have a theme, it’s always good to throw various activities in throughout the night to keep the momentum going and to keep guests interest level high. If you’ve successfully thrown a huge party that you spent thousands preparing, we’d love to hear all about it in the comments. party tips for organising children's birthday
