50 Milestone Birthday Ideas for 30th 40th 50th 60th and Beyond!

I hate to admit, but a few years ago I celebrated my 50th birthday! While I am not thrilled to have the extra lines on my face, life at 50 is pretty good! It is kind of a strange time in life when your kids are going off on their own, the parents are aging and (this is hard to believe) we started thinking about retirement plans! Not that anyone is retiring just yet, but it begins to cross your mind.

I spent a lot of time thinking how I wanted to celebrate this day…life event!

Although I didn’t have a “themed” party for my husband and me {we turned 50 in the same month} I did make this Timeline Milestone Birthday Invitation to send to all the guests! It featured images of our 25 years together!

  1. My 3 sisters and I are taking our mom to Tennessee for her 80th birthday it will be the first time we have been together in a very long time. Our brother will not be able to attend. I thought it would be fun to do an arts and crafts project – not too difficult or time consuming that we could do together to commemorate this event. We all live in different cities and are all convening in Tennessee. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.

    1. Hi Maureen,

      What a wonderful time you should have together. So, I went to pinterest and found this board of Family Reunion board – I also googled family reunion crafts. https://www.pinterest.com/explore/family-reunion-crafts/ or https://www.pinterest.com/reunionsmag/crafty-reunions/ You might find some great ideas in both places. I didn’t know if you were flying and need a small craft or could actually fit something lager in your car.

      I like the idea of using old photos of when you were kids combined with a photo from your current get together.

      I plate idea sharing memories might be nice https://www.pinterest.com/pin/774124908447819/

      Something you could display https://www.pinterest.com/pin/369717450637850986/

      Love this wreath https://www.pinterest.com/pin/311874342923978457/

      Or maybe a small photo keepsake box.

      I hope this starts you on your way to finding the perfect craft! Let me know if you need anything else.
