A Personal Touch Group Momento

Hi Krista,

I have two questions.

First, I need a great idea for a 60's birthday party for my special male friend. I'd like it to be both fun but also touching. Any ideas?

My other question is, I'd like to have everyone jointly create or do something to personalize this birthday. For example, have everyone dress or wear something that reminds them of him or something like that. When my former husband turned 60, I had all his friends sign a tile and then with those tiles, I created a table. The tiles being the table top. I can't go through all that trouble with my new friend because first of all, I don't know many of his friends and second of all, it was too much work. But I'm now thinking that if there is something else that maybe the guests can do, like create an ornament of some kind or something like that, that has meaning for them and my friend, it would be great. I know I'm close to having a good idea, but I'm not quite there. Maybe you can take this idea one step further and have the perfect solution. It's worth asking!

Thanks for your time and thought.

Party and momento idea
by: Krista Blaes


I recently helped plan a 50th birthday party that had two locations. The first was a local bar/restaurant the second a skating rink. The birthday girl loved the movie roller boogie and wanted to include skating. We decorated with troll dolls, lava lamps and peace signs.

People had a blast! Those that didn't want to skate went along to watch everyone else. Many of them returned to the bar after the skating rink closed.

As far as a momento, why not have a frame and matting ready for an party photo. Have the matting there so guests can sign. Later, have an enlarged photo printed, put it in the frame with glass and use as the momento gift.
