A charity party is one idea for a celebrant who may not want much in the way of gifts. Many people who reach the age of 80 already have most of their needs met, so a charity fundraiser might be a more productive idea than a large gift exchange. The guest of honor can choose their favorite charity and then have all of the money donated in their name after the party.
At a time capsule party, each guest brings an item that represents the celebrant's life. All of the items are then placed into a time capsule along with an explanation of each one's significance. The capsule can be opened ten years later, at the celebrant's 90th birthday party. The time capsule is a hopeful gesture that can also provide great memories for the recipient's family in the future.
A high tea ceremony is a refined choice for an 80th birthday, particularly if celebrant has limited mobility. High tea takes place sitting around the table, and allows guests to take turns sharing memories about the guest of honor. This party also pairs well with a memory cake decorated to represent important moments in the celebrant's life.Learn more about Birthday Parties
