A 75th birthday party is a time to celebrate a loved one who has survived 7 decades and it is very easy to make a heartfelt gift and a festivity with music. Singing, dancing and having a great time with family and friends is what most celebrations are supposed to be like. Therefore, finding the right melodies and tunes for those special events is very important. From rock and country to jazz and blues, getting together with friends and celebrating great times or special events will make your event very popular. You need very few party supplies with the surprise that you will be preparing for your guest of honor.

The first thing that you will need to do is gather as many pictures of the guest of honor that you can. You can get younger pictures from friends and other family members. You will also want current pictures. Arrange the pictures in order from oldest to the most current. You can use a home computer to scan the pictures and make them into a movie.

The next step is to set the pictures to music. Use melodies from the guest of honorís time period. Some songs that you can include are:
Goody, Goody- Ben Goodman
Knock, Knock Whoís There- Fletcher Henderson
A Fine Romance- Billie Holiday
You And I- Tommy Dorsey
Depending on how many pictures you have it will take 3 or more songs to make a complete movie. Gather everyone together to watch what you have put together for the guest of honor, and then when it is finished give it to the person so that they can watch it over again. This will be the highlight of the party, and the best gift you can give someone. Quick tip: Use paperweights to hold balloons down and placing them inside a decorative vase to create a centerpiece. Spark interest in a gathering by sending out unconventional invitations like CDs with the gathering information attached. String plates together to create your own unique banner with letting and then add whatever design works well with any theme.

For grandparents celebrating their 75th birthday, ensure to give them their best birthday to date with a 75th birthday extravaganza. Celebrating a special event with outstanding event adornments, designs and materials are always a great addition to a festive celebration and fun designs that are perfect for guests of all ages will boost up the event and make the guests feel very special. More often than not, these colorful embellishments will add an excessive amount of attention to the celebration.While reminding people how old they are may seem inappropriate, turning 75 years old is something to be proud of in achieving. Celebrate this occasion by selecting a suitable party location and decorate with vibrant, lavish party supplies and decorations. A homemade, decorative 75th birthday cake will make the celebrant feel very special as well. Do some investigating and research on the celebrants favorite cake and dishes to prepare if unknown.

What better way to show how much that person means to the family than by making a slideshow of the birthday boy or girl with additional 75th party supplies. Take favorite pictures from the past and present, add music, and this will create a wonderful trip down memory lane for the guests and the guest of honor. Another option is to blowup a large photograph of the celebrant and have guests write down best wishes and sign it. Have the younger children draw handmade pictures of grandma and grandpa and frame it. Chances are great that the celebrant has every type of kitchen appliance and household items already, but can always use more artwork from their grandchildren and family members.


Many people enjoy celebrating 75th birthdays with cake and ice cream. However, a 75th birthday party should be also recognized as more than just a regular birthday. Great tasting desserts and other tasty finger type treats are always a great addition to a special celebration. These extraordinary finger desserts along with other treats that are designed especially for this celebration will make everyone feel very special. More often than not, these great party foods and desserts will add a lot of fun to the celebrated event. Therefore, depending on the size of the birthday party, an assortment of cakes may be necessary. A few great cake ideas for a 75th birthday are Italian Cream cake, Red Velvet cake, Carrot cake and of course, White cake. Many of your guests will enjoy having a variety of cakes available for the 75th birthday party.

Most often, many people will attend a 75th birthday party and the party supplies, along with the cake will be very important. Therefore, an assortment of cakes will make it perfect. The cakes can be decorated in many ways. For instance, there may be one main white sheet cake traditionally decorated with the words, Happy Birthday, in the middle. This cake can be surrounded by six or seven round or sheet cakes (once again this may vary depending on the size of the party). These cakes can be Italian cream, Red Velvet, Chocolate, Carrot, Lemon and Marble. This variety of cakes will only add to the 75th birthday party.

Countless people enjoy attending a 75th birthday party and having a variety of tastefully decorated cakes and other desserts will be a nice touch.

Itís coming up on your big 75th birthday bash or at least you should be planning a big bash. Most bash hosts will find it very beneficial to plan the event in advance. From making a guest list to preparing the food, having a plan will make the celebration go off without a hitch. Simple hostess tip: Prepare for the entire celebration in advance and avoid adding any extra commitments or stress on the hostess during the preparation period. This simple tip will ensure that the hostess has a stress free and very entertaining time during the actual celebration. Thereís nothing like gathering all of your friends and family together to celebrate all the years that you have been on the earth. Sometimes youíve been grumpy, sometimes youíve been happy, but today of all days only happens once a year and the seventy-fifth birthday only ever happens once.

The 75th year is usually considered the platinum year. It would be nice if your guests could give you lots of platinum gifts, jewelry and watches and so forth, but that usually doesnít happen. Try celebrating this year with lots of platinum and silver colored decorations. Many party supplies can be found that sport this theme and you can even come across some party supplies with the appropriate number year printed on theme. Hang colorful dangles from the ceiling and you just might find sporting the number seventy-five is lots of fun. Silver colored glitter and confetti strung about the party area make things a little brighter. Because you may be feeling most energetic in the morning, abrunch may be the perfect time to celebrate this birthday.

If you donít really want to go through with the bother of putting seventy-five candles on the birthday cake get a single candle in the shape of the number seventy-five. Or get an unusual cake that itself is shaped in the form of the number seventy-five. A birthday party can easily be made special with just a few small changes to the traditional approach. For instance the reversal party is a fun idea.

Everything at the reversal party is backwards. So maybe you arenít celebrating your seventy-fifth, maybe you are celebrating your fifty-seventh birthday. You can ice the cake and serve it upside down on the platter. Have the guests come to the party with their clothing inside out and hang all of your banners upside down. Itís a nifty little way to have fun and maybe turn back the clock for a little while. And for the most fun, consider making this 75th birthday party a Surprise. It's always the most fun and so appreciated.
