How to Celebrate a 90th Birthday. Reaching the age of 90 is an accomplishment worthy of a celebration. If you have a friend or relative who is about to turn 90, then you should consider orchestrating a celebration of the person's life. Here's a few ideas to make the day extra special.

Talk with the person to determine what she might want for her 90th birthday. Some elderly people don't like a lot of noise and commotion, while others might really enjoy a lively party.

Determine when you'll hold the celebration. Lunchtime celebrations may be less tiring for elderly people. Prepare a meal for a quaint lunch or hors d'oeuvres to compliment a lively party.

Select a location that's easily accessible for older people, as many of your guests at a 90th birthday may be elderly.

Ask family and friends to send a photo of the celebrant along with a letter detailing great memories. Place photos and letters into a bound 90th birthday celebration book. Present the book to the celebrant on the day of the celebration.

Contract with someone to create a movie of the celebrant's life. Include pictures, video and favorite songs.

Decorate using a theme specific to the celebrant's hobbies or interests. Place the celebrants favorite flowers throughout the venue.

Set up a video booth where each guest can record a 90th birthday message for the celebrant. It's often easier for the elderly to watch a video than read writing in a book.

Tips & Warnings

  • Place a bulletin board, depicting pictures of the celebrant, at the entrance.
  • Minimize background noise as this may be problematic for people with hearing aids.
  • If weather permits, play some of the celebrant's favorite games outside.
  • Don't overwhelm the celebrant and avoid surprises that may be too emotional.
