Some ideas for celebrating a 90th birthday include playing a historical trivia game and making a keepsake memory book. Some other ideas include creating a fun party theme, such as "On the Day You Were Born."
Playing a trivia game that focuses on historical events can be a fun way to engage the celebrant and to have some fun seeing how the younger generations fare answering history-related questions against the nonagenarian in the family. A memory book containing photos and keepsakes can make a wonderful gift and conversation piece for a 90th birthday.
Thoughtfully themed parties are also a great way to honor a person who is turning 90. "On the Day (or Year) You Were Born" parties should focus on interesting things that happened during that time period. Party guests can even dress in period clothes, and the host can serve food items and/or drinks that were popular during the time in question. Another possible party theme is to pay homage to a beloved place. For example, if the celebrant once took a trip to Italy, or always wanted to, family members can fill the party venue with Italian-themed decor and prepare Italian dishes.
DivineDinnerParty.com reminds planners to do their research and find out whether the person turning 90 would prefer a casual or formal affair, or whether there are any medical or dietary needs that should be considered during planning.
