- "On the Day You Were Born"- Go to the nearest library branch with a newspaper archive. Copy some news articles from the "birth day" if you can. You can also search online for major events that happened the year of the guest of honor's birth, and print out a few "fun facts from the year of your birth" sheets. Leave them on the tables around the room for great conversation starters.
There are a lot of fun 70th birthday decorations available with 70s on them. Here are some fun 70th birthday party supplies that will add some color to the party room:
Standard birthday decorations also work great for a 70th birthday party. Have oodles of colorful crepe paper streamers decorating the ceiling. Fill the room with colorful balloon bouquets. Keep everything colorful and the room will look great!
There are pleanty of great ways to decorate the tables -
- Mini frames with pictures of the birthday boy or girl at different ages makes a fun centerpiece, and you can scatter 70 confetti on the tabletop to add color.
- A Personalized Photo Centerpiece is a custom and versatile table decoration. For a low centerpiece add flowers or a candle to the center; if the room is large have a balloon bouquet come out of the middle!
- Photo Tabletop Lanterns are another custom option that work really well on long tables, placed every few seats. You personalize the lantern with a photo of the guest of honor and a message, and it is lit inside so that the lantern glows on the table.
- A fun 70th birthday theme beverage napkin is a nice extra touch for the bar or the dessert table.
- If you need a little color add a 70 cascade centerpiece. It's great for the sign in table, the gift tables, the bar, buffet, or on each dinner table.
- Table decoration that doubles as a party favor - 70th birthday glasses! Perfect as a placecard or a napkin ring!
- A balloon arch over the buffet would be a great party decoration. For a less involved (but just as fun substitute), use crepe paper to create a canopy over the table.
Do a slideshow - Include pictures in a "Then and Now" format, or do a "Looking Back, and Looking Forward" which includes place's the guest of honor want to go see, or things he or she wants to do after 70.
Crank up the music - If you have the space and budget for it, hire a DJ or band to rock the dance floor. Include the guest of honor's favorite tunes, or just a great dance mix that will get everyone out of their chairs to celebrate!
