Turning 90 is certainly a momentous occasion. Not many people can say they have lived an impressive nine decades, making a 90th birthday party an important celebration that requires thoughtful planning. The most memorable moments come from the intricate details you are able to prepare in advance.

Adults and children alike will enjoy a cheery singalong at the party. Birthday girls or boys who like music may appreciate joining family and friends in singing verses of their favourite old-fashioned songs, such as "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and "Animal Fair." Do your research and choose some of their favourite songs. Print lyrics in advance for children and younger adults who may not recognise the songs.

Central Location

Whether you are inviting 20 or 200 guests, hold the event in an easy-to-reach location. A state park with useful accommodations, a vacation home, rented hall or even someone's house are just a few suggestions. Make sure parking and rest rooms are available, as well as wheelchair access if necessary. Plan ahead and be sensible; choose a location well-suited for your chosen type of gathering.

Birthday Bingo

This unique twist on the traditional game gathers everyone together --- even young children --- for entertainment and to celebrate the life of the birthday girl or boy. Fill out cards in advance by drawing a traditional bingo grid and then, instead of numbers, entering their likes and dislikes, interests and hobbies, into each square. Play the game as you would normal bingo, with a moderator calling out grid descriptions and thick markers or items to place over the squares.


Often, those lucky enough to be celebrating their 90th birthday will not want to be showered with gifts. Instead, spend time making a slideshow presentation reminding them of memories to treasure. Include photos, a timeline of their life, meaningful memorabilia and even kind messages from their loved ones. It might be a good idea to create a "hard copy" of your slideshow by placing everything into a decorative scrapbook he or she can take home with them as a reminder of how much they are cared for.
