To celebrate these 50 years in the best possible way, it is necessary to put all the good mood possible, but also to create and guarantee a playful and pleasant atmosphere. Between decorations, animations and some surprises, we have several ideas to make your 50th birthday unique. So we are happy to share all the tips and tricks for an unforgettable evening. Enjoy the reading!

Choosing a Theme

At 50 years old, the parties already organized and the birthdays already celebrated are numerous and different themes have been used. Obviously, one becomes more selective and the decoration of a 50th birthday party must be worthy of the milestone. When it comes to themes, here we don’t have preferences: as long as the decoration is sparkling and cheerful, it is also perfect!

Balloons for examples can become an essential element for a 50th birthday decoration, especially if they are well chosen. Shaped like the number 50 or representing beautiful writing with good wishes, they bring the right touch of trend that we love. You can even choose a complete 50th birthday theme, which includes table coordinates, combined with table decorations and other interior decorations. This solution is ideal and easy for those who do not have much time, while the more inspired can carefully prepare in detail a beautiful decoration with different elements. Be careful not to overdo it by loading the table and the walls with decorations. Everything should be done with class and refinement: celebrating half a century is not a trivial matter!

Having Fun

At 50 years old, fun is necessary to bring a lot of joy to this birthday. To entertain all the guests and have a wonderful evening, here is a list with all the perfect 50th birthday animations for the occasion:

– A karoke: everyone loves to sing! Especially if they are in good company and surrounded by a crazy, carefree party. Choose songs that are always impressive, reminiscent of the past years, but also the most trendy of the moment.

– A dance contest: the guests, in couples, will have to challenge each other in a dance step on different songs, styles and rhythms. The couple who dances the best, all styles included, will win the contest.

– The song game: Create a playlist with different songs from the birthday person. Whoever can guess the most songs will win! This is a game that has been a favorite at birthday parties for 50 years.

In short, it doesn’t take much to have fun with taste on a 50th birthday!

Think about a Surprise

In addition to a great birthday, you can organize an exceptional surprise party! Here, we love organizing surprise 50th birthday parties because the result is always great.

The funniest guests will gladly agree to dress up so they can host the 50th birthday party in masks. Ideally, you should choose the costumes according to the theme of the party or you can take inspiration from famous characters of the time like the Pink Panther or comic book characters like Asterix!
