Some party ideas for seniors are a tea party, a fishing-themed event and a patriotic-themed party. An additional theme that plays on the advanced age of seniors is a party that explores possible retirement destinations for seniors.
Seniors may enjoy a tea party because they have the opportunity to dress in fine clothes and eat carefully prepared food. A tea party usually involves fine teacups and dishes that serve as talking points for party guests. Flowers and candles on tables also set the tone for a proper tea party. Hosts can prepare food in advance, including scones, sandwiches and pastries.
A fishing theme can include fish on the menu and fish decorations. Games can also highlight the fish theme.
A patriotic party has many decoration possibilities because of the abundance of party decoration items in red, white and blue. Seniors might enjoy the patriotic theme because of the large number of senior veterans and the opportunity to reminisce about historical and personal memories. The patriotic theme matches a variety of events throughout the year, such as Memorial Day, Veterans Day and the Fourth of July.
Fruit in red and blue such as strawberries and blueberries reflect the theme of a patriotic party. Partygoers can dip the fruit into white chocolate. Encourage attendees to wear a costume, or have a party host wear a costume and act in character.
Alternatively, a theme for a senior party can explore retirement destinations such as Italy or Mexico. The party theme can be festive with beach decorations and bright colors. Seniors can share memories from prior travels.
