One of the best 75th birthday gifts you might give is to plan a birthday celebration for the celebrant. Depending on the birthday celebrant's preference and your budget, the event could either be a huge birthday party or a romantic family get-together. Regardless of whether the event is a big one or not, it is important that it is well-organized and special. Here are some ways you may follow for organizing a 75th birthday:

Create a guest list

You will need to make a list of the people you're planning to invite to the party so that you can accommodate all of them. Ask the celebrant for a listing of names of relatives and buddies whom he or she likes to attend the special event.

Decide on the venue

Look for prospective venues that can accommodate all your guest visitors and still fall fairly within your spending budget. Your choice of place must also match the theme of the occasion. For example, if the occasion is a formal affair you will not need to hold it at a laidback diner. Holding the affair at the celebrant's home could help you lower your expenses, but you need to think about the setup and aftercare services. Additionally, if you plan to have the bash at a private house, you must think about city noise ordinances so that you will not disturb neighbors.

Distribute invitation letter

After getting a list of guest visitors and a selected place, you may now compose a party invitation. Include important information like the place of the party, the time and also your contact details in case they have any questions. If it's a formal dinner, request that your party guests wear formal attire. Send the invitations out about 3 weeks prior to the party and request that visitors confirm their presence in order to be sure of the entire guest count.

Prepare the program

Make a program to emphasize the celebrant's big day. Request that the birthday celebrant's best friends, kids and loved ones make a speech or tribute for the birthday celebrant. Find someone who'll facilitate the various parts of the party. You might also wish to hire a music group that will play and amuse everyone throughout the party. Provide them with a collection of the celebrant's favourite songs or let them know regarding the celebrant's favorite music. If you don't have a budget for a music group, you may just make a playlist of the celebrant's favorite music to play during dinner or while the party guests are anticipating the program to begin.

Make the food

You could hire a catering company to manage all the beverages and food for the occasion. Alternately, you can ask family and friends to assist you cook the food for the event. Discover what the birthday celebrant's favorite foods are and if he or she has any nutritional restrictions. Refer to your visitor list so that you will learn how much food to prepare for the party. You should also think about the type of event you are hosting to figure out what food is appropriate.

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