Getting Started with Creative Ideas

Think about the most avid or unusual interests your birthday person has ever mentioned,and then try to think of an unusual way to associate it with a really creative 50th birthday bash. Here are some examples of a few creative ideas based upon unusual interests:  

  • Do they have a favorite author who writes about a real-life place in their book like the Notre-Dame Cathedral in The Hunchback of Notre-Dame?  A trip to Paris may be in order.
  • Or how about a visit to an historical city like Savannah, Georgia from the movie, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil?
  • Has your spouse or friend ever been interested in the paranormal?  If so, you could hire a medium and host a seance.  If it occurs during the autumn months make it a costume party, too.
  • If you have a friend who's a wine enthusiast, you could arrange to have their 50th celebration at a vineyard or winery.
  • For a sports fan, you could rent box seats at a favorite stadium and have a blast with your pals.  Hire a limo for transport so the party is free to celebrate.
