To plan for a 75th birthday celebration, you must make a visitor list, select the location, send out invitations, make the program, and prepare the food.

One of the perfect 75th birthday gifts you may give is to plan a birthday celebration for the celebrant. With respect to the birthday celebrant’s taste and your budget, the party may either be a grand birthday bash or an intimate family gathering. Regardless if the celebration is a big one or not, it is important that it’s well-organized and memorable. Below are some procedures you can follow for organizing a 75th birthday celebration:

Make a visitor list

You need to write down a list of the people you are planning to invite to the party so that you can accommodate all of them. Request the celebrant for a list of names of family and friends whom she or he likes to attend the special event.

Consider the location

Search for potential venues that would accommodate all your attendees and still fall fairly within your spending budget. Selecting the location should also match the concept of the party. For instance, if the event is a formal affair you wouldn’t need to hold it at a laidback diner. Holding the event at the birthday celebrant’s home might help you cut costs, but you need to consider the set up and aftercare services. Additionally, if you plan to make the celebration at a private house, you should think about area noise ordinances so as not to disturb neighbors.

Send out invitations

After you have a list of guests and a selected place, you can now compose a party invitation. Feature essential details such as the location of the party, the time as well as your contact information in case they have any questions. If it is a formal dinner, request that your party guests wear formal dress. Send the invitation letters out about 3 weeks prior to the celebration and request that guest visitors verify their presence so you can be sure of the total visitor count.

Create the program

Develop a program to emphasize the birthday celebrant’s big event. Request that the celebrant’s dearest friends, children and loved ones make a talk or tribute for the celebrant. Find a person who will conduct the different parts of the occasion. You may also want to hire a band that will play and amuse everyone throughout the affair. Provide them with a selection of the birthday celebrant’s favorite music or inform them regarding the celebrant’s favorite songs. If you don’t have a spending budget for a music band, you may simply make a playlist of the birthday celebrant’s favourite songs to play throughout the dinner or while the visitors are waiting for the program to start.

Make the food

You can hire a food caterer to deal with all the beverages and food for the celebration. Alternately, you may ask friends and family to assist you make the food for the event. Find out what the birthday celebrant’s favorite foods are and if she or he has any food limitations. Refer to your own guest list so that you will know how much food to prepare for the affair. You should also think about the kind of celebration you are hosting to decide what food is ideal.

The birthday celebrant will certainly appreciate the effort you put into organizing the event.
