Planning a 60th birthday party can be a lot of fun; you have 60 years of life to celebrate and plenty of creative resources to use. The invitation plays a fundamental role in any party; it should represent the party and be fun. In the case of a 60th birthday party, it should make people smile or laugh and want to do their best to come to the party.

An Old Picture

Find an old picture of the person as a baby, a child or a teenager, and use it as the main part of the invitation. The photo will make people smile when they see it and remind them of their past. If you really want to make it funny, use a picture from an old birthday party.

Theme Invitation

Look up trends from the era when the birthday celebrant grew up. Include items from this era on the invitation, and make it a theme party. A theme can give the party guests something exciting to look forward to, as well as bring fond memories upon receipt of the invitation.

Big 6-0 Numbers or Phrases

A key part of the invitation involves displaying the number large somewhere on the invitation. You can do this in several ways: simply by just making the "60" part of the font large or clever by using a catchy phrase. Some examples include "The Big Six-Oh," "Sweet 60" or "Sixty is Nifty." The year is a huge part of the party; display it in an obvious manner but have fun with it.

List Happenings from Birth Year

To personalise an invitation, gather facts from the birthday celebrant's birth year, and list those on the invitation. For example, think of which major events occurred during that year or how much a postage stamp cost. These facts will make people smile and bring them back, as well as realise what a profound year it is to celebrate.
