Decade birthdays are worthy of celebration, and the 60th is no exception. If a special friend or family member is approaching this milestone, why not celebrate in style with a 60th birthday party?
With these fun and memorable 60th birthday ideas, you'll put the last 59 celebrations to shame:
Purchase a murder mystery kit at your local bookstore or online, or write your own script featuring characters and events from the guest of honor's life.
Who says party games are just for kids? Break out board games and cards, host a few rounds of croquet and Bocce, and then award the winners with engraved trophies or faux gold medals.
Rent or purchase poker, roulette, Texas Hold 'Em, or baccarat tables, or make your own by draping tables with green felt and using white paint to mark off playing surfaces. Give each guest a set amount of play money to hit the tables with, and then award a "High Roller" prize to the guest with the most money at the end of the night. For a sophisticated touch, have waiters serve appetizers and drinks to the guests while they play.
Reaching the 60th year of life is grounds for a little pampering. Hire a masseuse to treat the guests to chair massages, or enlist a traveling spa to set up manicure, pedicure, or facial stations.
