Game idea: take a clear container, then fill with candy, toys or other objects and have the guests guess the number of items inside. Photos provide such lasting memories; take time to designate someone as the photographer at a social occasion. Gather up some leftover brown packing boxes, wrap them in a matching theme color design and place them throughout the event space for instant decorations.

Usually in America the ideal is seen as being young and much of our industry is focused on staying young with lots of anti-aging formulas and treatments, so the idea of the Over the Hill party evolved as the polar opposite to youth. The guests and the guests of honor are celebrating their transition into older age. Sometimes this party is thrown for people who are still really quite young, but it's seen as funny because it's obviously wrong. Some like throwing the Over the Hill party for a guest of honor who is just turning thirty, since turning thirty is seen as a very big transition from youth and immaturity to adulthood and maturity.
This concept is usually not present in many other cultures and only really prevalent in the westernized countries, arising as a response to the never ending search for the fountain of youth. The never ending search just gets so tiring for some people that they decide to have a good old fashioned Over the Hill party. These parties often feature a tombstone shaped cake, graveyard related decorations because the further over the hill you are, the closer to death you are, and lots of gag gifts such as adult diapers and canes and thick reading glasses. Party colors for this theme are often black and grey.Of course, if the guest of honor is turning seventy, a 70's party would be lots of fun to use as a theme also.
