Brown is the new black. Fifty is the new thirty. Well, no wonder people are scoring so poorly on tests these days! Who is changing all of these rules in the first place? Fifty used to be a revered age, and so it should be again.
Instead of trying to gather friends and family at the home of the birthday person, opt for a party at a local club (if someone is a member) or favorite restaurant. Another option is the local rec center where you can either have staff decorate for you or do the decorating yourself.
Birthday sayings can be very trying to come up with. Make sure that everyone is ready for the event with a quote related to the person or birthdays. Consult a quote book or online site for ideas about what to say. Make sure that none of them are hurtful or disrespectful in anyway.
Many people who are in this age group may feel like they have enough items in their home and might appreciate events and memories instead. If they have a particular hobby or interest, then they might like to have items related to that as well. Ask the person what they need or want. If you know them well enough to be invited to share their birthday, you should know them well enough to know what they would like to have.
