When organizing a 75th birthday celebration, make sure you make a guest checklist, consider the venue, distribute invitations, make the program, and prepare the food.
One of the ideal 75th birthday gifts you can give is to plan a birthday celebration for the celebrant. Based on the celebrantís preference and your spending budget, the event could either be a huge birthday bash or a romantic family get together. Regardless of whether the party is a big one or not, it is important that it s well organized and unforgettable. Here are some guidelines you may follow for organizing a 75th birthday celebration:
Produce a guest list
You will need to create a list of the individuals you are planning to invite to the party so that you can accommodate all of them. Ask the birthday celebrant for a listing of names of friends and family whom he or she wants to attend the party.
Decide on the location
Search for prospective places that would accommodate all your attendees and still fall fairly within your spending budget. Selecting the location must also fit the concept of the affair. For example, if the occasion is a formal affair you will not want to host it at a laidback diner. Hosting the occasion at the celebrantís home can help you cut costs, but you must think about the set up and aftercare services. Furthermore, if you wish to make the occasion at a private house, you should think about city noise ordinances so as not to disturb neighbors.
Send out invitation letter
After getting a listing of guest visitors and a preferred location, you may now compose a party invitation. Include necessary details such as the place of the celebration, the time along with your contact details in case they have any questions. If it is a formal dinner, request that your guests wear formal clothes. Send the invitations out about three weeks prior to the celebration and request that visitors verify their attendance so you can be sure of the overall visitor count.
Create the program
Have a program to emphasize the celebrantís big day. Request that the celebrantís best friends, children and loved ones prepare a talk or tribute for the celebrant. Find someone who will facilitate the various parts of the occasion. You may also desire to hire a music band which will play and entertain everyone throughout the event. Provide them with a selection of the celebrantís favorite music or inform them regarding the celebrantís favorite songs. If you donít have a spending budget for a music group, you can simply make a playlist of the birthday celebrant s favourite songs to play during dinner or while the attendees are waiting for the program to begin.
Cook the food
You may hire a food caterer to deal with all the food and beverages for the party. Alternately, you may ask family and friends to help you cook the food for the party. Discover what the celebrantís favorite food items are and if she or he has any nutritional limitations. Refer to your visitor list so you will know the amount of food to prepare for the occasion. You must also think about the kind of celebration you re hosting to determine what food is suitable.
The birthday celebrant will certainly appreciate the effort you put into organizing the event.
