Let's face it, if you're looking at your
60th birthday coming right up, it can be a shocker and a
two-edged sword. On the one hand, it's hard to believe you're
60 years old. You may not look it, you probably don't feel it,
but the fact is there as plain as the nose on your face! On the
other hand, sixty years of living has given you experience,
wisdom and if you're lucky, family, children and even
grandchildren to treasure.
Now, let's say it's not you, but your spouse or beloved
friend who's having a 60th birthday. It's up to you to make the
occasion special and a joyous occasion. Throw a party that
celebrates the achievement of so many years! Let's look at some
ideas to make your beloved friend's birthday a happy memory
rather than a morose view of the “glass half full”. A good
place to start is with your party invitations. The 60th
birthday party invitations should be conceived with humor and a
lot of love!
Of course, all those “over the hill” jokes come to mind. If
your birthday guy or gal is one who laughs in the face of their
6th decade, then by all means, throw in a few references making
light of their 60 years of life. A word to the wise: don't go
overboard here, because where a couple of jokes bring laughter,
an overdose may bring on depression!
Your 60th birthday party invitations can be a collage of all
the emotions that play into the celebration. Go online to some
of the e-card sites where you'll find a range of sentiments
expressing the full emotional symptoms of one experiencing
their 60th year. Make a compilation of the feelings one might
have upon attaining their 60th year. You may be surprised to
find the 60th birthday party invitations require a lot of
insight on your part.
Talk to all your friends who will be attending the party.

guest of honor, all of whom can contribute a good idea to make
your 60th birthday party invitations a beautiful tribute to the
Think about the birthday girl or guy's special interests.
