Turning 60 is a special time in your mother's life, and you will no doubt want to throw her a terrific birthday that she will always cherish with the fondest memories. After all, a 60th birthday is a viewed as a milestone for most people, and your mother will certainly be no exception to this feeling.
Depending on your mom's personality, there are many options on how to celebrate her birthday. Consider what she likes, any hobbies and favorite pastimes. What kind of music does she listen to?
If your mother is more of a homebody type, you may consider having a surprise party for her birthday at her house. Inviting family and close friends over is ideal because it will have a more relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Have someone bring a cake they either baked or bought, and show home videos or just reminisce about the great times you've all had with her.
A concert is always a great idea for anyone's birthday. Think about your mother's favorite musical artists and check in advance who is playing at clubs or arenas in your area. Some 60-year-old moms are conservative and listen to softer music, while others are cool and still love their rock n' roll or even heavy metal. Purchase tickets for your mother and her significant other or buy tickets for you and her to enjoy together. This will definitely put a smile on her face!
If you live in an area that features shows and plays and your mother is a fan of the theater, this is another wonderful option for her birthday. You know her well and know what she likes. If she is interested in drama, treat her to a show that is chock-full of it. If she prefers comedy, find a funny show to take her to. Or maybe she is the type who would prefer attending a comedy club and laughing it up in the front row at the crazy stand-up comedian.
Bowling is another fun idea for a birthday. Most people have the misconception that bowling parties are only for kids, but this couldn't be farther from the truth. Many bowling alleys offer to host birthday parties for people of all ages, and your mother will have a blast! Treat her to dinner at her favorite restaurant before or afterwards.
Whatever party ideas you come up with, your mom is sure to have a great time for a memorable 60th!
