Anything 80 Birthday Party – This really fun and unique idea is to use the birthday age as the theme of the party. So almost everything party related is based around the number 80. And I mean Everything! Virtually every single thing involving the birthday and the party is incorporated into the number 80 resulting in a great big birthday bash.

Have the invited guests bring a gift of, you guessed it, 80 of something. It literally can be anything… 80 candies, 80 pencils, 80 cards or 80 of whatever else comes to mind!
This is Your Life Party – One of the top 80th party ideas is to design a presentation of the birthday honoree’s life… a stroll down memory lane, if you will. This can easily include pictures as well as a video production highlighting all the happiest and best parts of a person’s life. A sequence of decorations that harken back to the day when the guest of honor was growing up. With the quick use of Google you can simply research what was in and what was out during those formative years. And you can easily find the most popular items and events, price points of the time as well as the top music and movies from back in the day and display them in a decorative fashion. With the “them” being all about the birthday person’s life, birthday party planning has never been so much fun.
Book of Life Party – This fun filled idea is great for those celebrating birthdays of all ages, not only the number 80. Create a questionnaire and send it to every single person that knew the guest of honor when they were younger. The questionnaire should include various questions about the honoree including how they met, what their favorite memory is and what they deem as the birthday person’s most appealing quality. While at the same time, collect pictures from the different phases of their life. Birthdays are the perfect time to relive all those fabulous life experiences and special memories of those times and the folks that shared their journey. Once you receive all the replies, info and pictures, you make a book of life, a great way to document and celebrate the life of the person celebrating their birthday. It’s the gift that will keep on giving…joy that is!
