Eighty is a milestone year, and a party themed entirely around the number is one possible choice. Consider using 80 as the basis for the party's decorations. Refreshments could include 80 birthday cupcakes or a jar filled with 80 pieces of candy. For decorations, try blowing up 80 balloons or decorating the table with a centerpiece composed of 80 flowers.
A jazz-themed party is a thoughtful choice for 80-year-old celebrants. This party is particularly enjoyable for a guest of honor who is still active enough to get out on the dance floor. Create a jazz playlist, ask guests to come in period costumes and offer a speakeasy bar serving period drinks such as mint juleps, Manhattans and sidecars.
For a less active 80-year-old, a high-tea ceremony requires a bit less movement. For high tea, guests all gather at the table, partaking in fancy teas and other refreshments. A high-tea party can also incorporate activities such as trivia and sharing memories about the celebrant.Learn more about Birthdays
