Turning 50 is a time in a man's life to reflect on his many accomplishments over the past five decades. Help with this act of introspection and make him realise his achievements throughout his birthday party. In addition to serving his favourite cake, giving presents and exchanging stories, commemorate the evening by adding high-end alcohol, showing a touching slideshow or compile a rocking play list from his college years.

Wine or Beer Tasting Station
Men turning 50 have typically moved beyond the days of consuming cheap alcohol and wine during the poor college student days. In addition to having an open bar at the party, ask the bartender to offer flights of wine and to educate the guests about the different types. If the birthday boy is more of a beer drinker, find a variety of exotic, high-end beers at the store and have a beer tasting instead.
50 Pictures and Memories Slideshow
Old School Party
The music, fashion sense, movie scene and food are remarkably different today than when the birthday boy was in high school or college. Bring back these youthful times for his birthday by making the party theme centred from the era of his school days. Compile a play list of songs and hang movie posters on the wall reflecting this era. If he still lives near the same town as his high school or college, get the food for the party catered from his old favourite hangout. Also ask guests to write on a strip of paper what they liked best about this era and read the memories aloud at some point throughout the party.
