Birthdays are always fun, but if your mother is turning 70, you want to make it memorable and unique. Try moving beyond the usual cake and ice cream party to something that she'll truly appreciate.

Spa Day

Having a spa day is not only a special way to celebrate a birthday but also a way to bond with your mother. Invite other special women in her life to celebrate her day, and choose a spa with an a la carte menu of services so she can pick the ones she wants.

Fifties Party

Celebrate your mother's golden decade with a 1950s party. Play oldies but goodies music and have guests dress in poodle skirts and peg-leg jeans. Hold a dance contest with 1950s-themed prizes.

Queen for a Day

Playing off the classic '50s TV show, Queen for a Day, crown your mom for her special day. Hire a maid service to clean her house, take her to buy a new dress and to get her hair done. Finish the day with a dinner fit for a queen.


If your mother likes history or art, consider a trip to a local museum. Check into special lectures or classes that might interest her and combine it with a lunch at a nearby restaurant.

Be Crafty

Check out local craft centres for classes. Many florists offer classes in flower arranging, and some pottery stores specialise in letting people create their own ceramics.
