If you are planning to throw a 50th birthday party and need 50th birthday party ideas you will need to start with the right 50th birthday party decorations to make it a very memorable milestone event.

Here are ideas on where to find best pricing and a complete list for everything you will need in terms of 50th birthday party decorations and supplies.

Before identifying what 50th birthday party decorations you will need there a few other decisions you must make first.

It all starts with a budget. You have to know how much you have to spend. The last thing you we want to do is get started with your party planning and half way through find out you don’t have enough money to finish.

Once a budget has been determined now you should select a theme. There are a lot of fun themes you can have for a 50th birthday party. Your first consideration should about the person turning 50. Think about their personality. What type of a theme would suit them best? Have they reached a point in their life where they are slowing down a bit? Perhaps a golden 50 celebration where everything would be very
formal would be appropriate.

If they are a fun loving person you could go with a Casino Night Party or a Happy Days Sock Hop Party, or a Beers From Around the World Party. If they have a sense of humor an Over-The-Hill Party with everything in black and lots of gag gifts would be fun.

Once you have selected the theme, you need to decide who you will be inviting and
get a rough number of the amount of guests that may attend.

Now it’s time to decide the location. Based on the number of people you will be inviting and the size of the event do you have enough room at a home or will you need to rent a facility? Set the date and you are that much closer. Before setting a date you may want to call a few important friends or family members that absolutely need to be there for the guest of honor. Make sure they can attend on the date you have in mind. (Hint: Don’t call too many people because that will just complicate your planning. Not everybody can always come on the same date.)

What will your invitations look like? Do you want them done by a professional printer or will you be doing them yourself?

Deciding on the food is very important. Will you be having the event catered or will you be doing the food yourself or a combination of? Will you be having appetizers or a full sit-down meal? How about drinks? Will there be a bartender or a no host bar (fun but expensive)? And plan early for the cake. The cake is important and will be a center piece attraction for a 50th birthday.

What’s your plan for entertainment? This will depend a lot on the theme you choose. But music at a party is a necessity and a very important component to setting the mood, tempo, and festiveness. Do you want a live band, DJ or maybe just pre planned music from an IPod?
