When planning a 50th birthday party for a woman, it is a good idea to use one of her interests as a party theme, choosing decorations and serving foods that reflect them in some way. Her interests may include her hobbies or the things she loves to collect. Additionally, a good way to commemorate the 50 years she has lived is to create a photo collage that can be used as a party decoration.
If a woman who is interested in travel dreams of visiting Hawaii, give her a luau-inspired birthday party. Serve Hawaiian dishes and offer Kahlua and pineapple chunks as refreshments. Decorate with plastic palm trees and tiki cutouts; give each party guest a lei of flowers to wear and keep as a party favor.
If the woman loves to collect shoes, give her a shoe-themed party, serving shoe-shaped cookies and other finger foods and decorate with cutouts of various styles of shoes.
When creating a photo collage for a woman's 50th birthday party, it is a good idea to arrange the photos to form the numbers "5" and "0." The photos should represent the various stages of her life and commemorate her major milestones, which may include her college graduation, wedding or the birth of a child.
