50th Birthday Party Ideas

The big 5-0 is here!  The product of the 80’s is now buying products more than ever.  Computer/Tech savvy, cool, in the flow of things and getting his or her second wind in life.  No longer a mid life crisis (that’s for the 60+ crowd), this group is wanting it all…and getting it.

Even though many are grandparents, the 50 year old crowd is hardly feeling like it.  Now, they’re out playing as hard as the 30-somethings and loving life!  So, what do you do for the 50th?  What is out there for the person who deserves a big birthday push into the next fifty?

It’s no secret.  We love a great party.  So, let’s talk party.  And let’s talk about what that Madonna-dancing-Breakfast Club-watching-parachute-pant-wearing honoree might like!


Really…be truthful.  What does this special person like?  Observe…what is their taste?  Are they quirky, classy, fun-loving, quiet, crazy, artsy?…All these things are going to play into what they might like for their birthday.

We don’t know if we can come up with 50 birthday ideas, but we will give you as many ideas as we can muster for you to consider.

So, let’s get started…


A great option for a group.  The surprise birthday party is probably the best idea but the hardest to pull off for the obvious reasons. Depending how the birthday boy is, you might not even be able to hide it for a day.  Remember, you are dealing with a seasoned veteran who has “seen it all”.  So, choose this option carefully.  There are many elements involved and best served if you have a few accomplices to help you achieve your goal.


wine-and-cheese-50th-birthday-partyClassy, fun, intimate and of course, spent with good friends, the honoree will get to laugh, drink and enjoy.  Then later, break out a game of Clue or Scrabble and you’ll even have more fun.


50 years, 5 days.  Have a little gift for each of the four days preceding with the 5th day culminating with the best.


Couples are best served for this one.  Although we’ve heard of “destination birthday parties” in the past.  Why not?  We say, “Go for it!”


Have a 50th Birthday Dinner Party, either hosted at your place or a friends…then of course, hire a professional murder mystery group and have fun!


have a chef at your home for a small birthday partyThis is great with either an intimate dinner for two or a bit larger…you could have this coupled with the murder mystery option or perhaps add surprise element of Singing Waiters that can serve a bit of food and then have fun with the birthday boy singing the fabulous hits of the 80’s! We also like the idea of having the a fake chef (while the real one is actually cooking in the kitchen) talking about the courses but is actually a comedian.


Magic is pretty cool for any birthday party.


Invite your guests (this could be a surprise as well) to a destination restaurant or club for a night of drinks, dinner and laughs.


the crazy mixologistA fun trend is to have your drinks served with flair.  A Mixologist is like a mad scientist working with spirits, aperitifs and mixers…mixing and creating those one-off libations for the birthday boy’s 50th.  A fun time and a fun addition to any amazing party.


Themed parties are so much fun because there is no limit as to what that can be.  But since this is a product of the 80’s and he’s going to be 50, we suggest a western theme, reminiscent of the hit TV Show “Dallas”, 80’s Band Revival (complete with big hair), dress like your favorite 80’s band icon…David Lee Roth, Madonna, etc. You could expand this to include all 80’s style.  Ooooh…is there a comeback planned yet?


They are in the prime of their life.  Lots done, yet lots left to do.  Freeze that moment in time with a great photo or painted portrait.  Splurge.  It’s ok to be vain.  “You probably think this song is about you…”


Rock out till Dawn with hits from Night Ranger, Def Leppard, Quiet Riot!…


Don’t forget, it’s a 50th Birthday Party.  Make the magic number important.  Use the number to identify the number the guests, drinks, a top 50 list, Fifty cool things about the guest of honor.  Fifty chronological photos that begin with child birth to present.


Not a roast in the oven.  Roast the guest of honor.  Allow each person to “roast” the 50th Birthday Boy/Girl for 50 (or even 5) seconds-this depends on your guests and guest of honor.  50 seconds may not sound like that long but it is.

Amazing Singing Waiter Holiday Show in Rolling Hills, California


Singing to an unsuspecting luncheon guest in los angeles

The guys love singing to the ladies.

The Amazing Waiters brought in the Holiday Season with some personally served surprise entertainment for a lovely group of ladies at their Country Club Holiday Luncheon in Rolling Hills, California this past weekend.

Posing as Waiters, the guys infiltrated the on-site staff and proceeded to transform from waiters to entertainers singing a mix of Christmas Classics, Rat Pack and Broadway Favorites intertwined with a specially-written script.  The ladies were completely surprised!

3 Amazing Waiters surprie guests in los angeles

“It was great to get back to one of our favorite clients on the Peninsula here in LA”, stated Singing Waiter, James. “I really don’t think they were seeing a show until our third waiter made his grand entrance.  By then, we were singing our 4th or 5th song…It was a fun time!”.

No Hassle Sound Equipment

The club wanted the Amazing Waiter special sound option which made it very easy for them.  We had the peace of mind of having our own sound system and they were relieved they didn’t have to coordinate a third party for our needs.

See The Amazing Waiters Video to see some ideas on how they perform a customized show for you.

Rave Wedding Entertainment Review from our Boston Show

This was so good, we had to share…

This past weekend, The Amazing Waiters were privileged, to surprise BOTH Bride and Groom with a gift from the Mother of the Bride.  Although sometimes risky (when both parties don’t know) to do a wedding reception show like this without either knowing, we were happy to customize this show around and even embracing that with the blessing of the Bride’s Mother.

It was a very cool (although weather-wise it wasn’t) outdoor Bostonian-Styled wedding and reception with the blazers and light pants.  The tables were very elegant outside this hidden stone manor about an hour north of the City Proper.

Sound Check for Wedding Reception in Boston MA.

This show featured James (General Manager of TAW) and Sean (our East Coast TAW Representative), two long time friends and very versed in handling about anything that can get  thrown at them.

The specially written show consisted of inside jokes, dialogue and some fabulous songs that ranged from Broadway, Jazz (Rat Pack) to Opera.  The surprise knocked the newlyweds for a loop and brought them to their feet numerous times during the show.

After the show, the mother of the bride sent a very nice letter that is most worth sharing:

Hi James,

Besides our beautiful daughter and new son in law, the Amazing Waiters stole the show. You were simply extraordinarily amazing and fun. The sad thing the singing was so good we wanted to hear more and more songs. Everyone was surprised and some were so touched by the choice of songs that they choked up.

We made the absolute right choice in hiring you.

Thank you for the happy memories.


You are most welcome Pauline!  And, as we said at the wedding, we’ll plan on being there for the Silver Anniversary as well!
