Birthday celebrations are, like other gatherings, restricted by government guidelines right now. You may even have had to cancel plans made for 2020. But as you’re only 50 once and it’s a milestone birthday you’ll want to remember, here’s a few ideas to consider in planning what to do for your 50th birthday party;
Watch your favourite movie with friends. A simple but fun evening that can be held either in person at a great venue that creates the perfect backdrop for the film or even virtually right now. Let people know why it’s your favourite, what memories it evokes. Think about theming food and drinks to the film to add to the experience. You could even ask your guests to dress as characters from the film too. Then sit back, relax and create a new reason why it’s your favourite film.
Who doesn’t love The Great British Bake-Off? So, why not host your own? Choose a venue like Foodworks Cookery School and the team there will help with the organising. Whilst there may be some master bakers and cake makers amongst your friends, it’s probably best to keep it simple so everyone can join in. Then roll-up your sleeves and get baking. Finish off the fun by sampling each other’s creations with a glass of bubbly or sit down for Afternoon Tea, baked by you and your friends.
Exclusive Hire House Party
Celebrate in style by hiring your very own manor house and plan the most amazing weekend ever. You get to decide on every aspect of your event, from the cocktails to the food to music to the dress code. Do you want a glamorous black-tie dinner with fabulous food and the finest wines? Or perhaps you’d like to relive the music of your youth with a DJ manning the decks, playing tunes from a playlist of your choosing? Once you’ve decided on the main event, the party, then why not add in some daytime fun too to make the most of your surroundings? Many exclusive hire houses offer or can arrange activities such as clay pigeon shooting, golf, horse riding and much more. So, instead of simply having a night to remember, make it a weekend to remember for you and your guests.
Your very own music festival! You get to choose the line-up and who joins in the fun. There’s a lot of planning required for this one, so it’s probably a good idea to work with an Event Planner who will have a little black book of all the right contacts. Of course, you’ll work with them to bring your dream music festival to life, deciding on the bands, the street food vendors and most importantly the time and the place. As with any event, getting the venue right is key. You could opt for a field or decide on a venue with fantastic outdoor space but with indoor space too, just in case the British weather does its worst and so plan B of moving indoors is required, Lots to think about but fun to plan and definitely a 50th birthday party no one will ever forget at the end of it.
Whatever you decide to do to celebrate, to mark the occasion, many happy returns.
