You have been kicking it for five decades. Now it’s time to celebrate for your 50th birthday. Consider this an opportunity to celebrate your “second 21st birthday,” a major milestone full of fun and friends. Choose a 50th birthday party theme that exemplifies your personality!

50th Birthday Theme #1: 50 Things You Love

Make a list of your favorite things. It could be your favorite things from each year of your life or your current favorites. Incorporate each of these items into the décor, food selection and music. Perhaps a playlist of your 50 favorite songs? Or a guest list filled of your 50 favorite people?

50th Birthday Theme #2: 1980s College Party

It’s time for a throwback! Ask guests to wear their 80’s best and relive their college years for a few hours. Buy a keg (full of your favorite beer), put on an 80’s soundtrack to set the mood, and dance the night away for your 50th birthday. Who said 50 isn’t the new 21?

50th Birthday Theme #3: Around the World

Transport your guests for an evening around the world. Create a distinct menu of popular food and drinks from different countries for your 50th birthday bash. Then be sure to match your décor with travel-themed objects or signature items from the countries of your choosing.

50th Birthday Theme #4: Over the Hill

How’s that view from the top of the hill? Make your 50th birthday lighthearted and full of jokes with an over the hill party theme. Get a variety of décor that represents getting old from pill boxes to canes, then let your guests take pictures around the venue. Let the jokes continue all night long!

50th Birthday Theme #5: Golden Glory

Gold is the color of celebrating 50. Design a gold shindig from tablecloths to decorations, and drinks to hors d’oeuvre. Make it bright and shiny as you turn 50 with a golden bang. This theme is great for an evening cocktail party.

50th Birthday Theme #6: Destination

Why stay home when the world is your playground? Grab your favorite people and go on a weekend trip to celebrate turning 50. Enjoy the flashy fun of Las Vegas, a warm weekend on the beach or a peaceful adventure to the vineyards of Napa Valley. Wherever you go, make it a time to enjoy and celebrate!Turning 50 is exciting and should be celebrated! Choose an enjoyable theme and make a grand time of it.
