50th Birthday Surprise with Singing Waiters

50th Birthday Surprise Party with 2 Singing Waiters

Parties are always fun, no matter the time of year. They’re even better when it’s your 50th birthday, surrounded by 50 of your closest friends.  Such was the case this past weekend in Calabasas, California for a 50th Birthday Surprise Party with The Amazing Waiters (just north of Los Angeles for those of you who don’t know where this is…it’s where Justin Bieber used to live before he sold to Khloe Kardashian in 2014, but we digress).  Needless-to-say, Calabasas is lovely.

We were contacted by the birthday girl’s mother who wanted to do something different and special for her daughter and thought The Amazing Waiters would be a nice addition to the festivities.  She wanted to keep it a surprise for her.

SOMETIME SECRETS HAVE TO BE TOLD

…as was the case here…

Do you know that person that you can NEVER keep a surprise from?

secrets sometimes need to be told

Well, the birthday girl was one of those people.  And it’s good she knew before the “surprise”.  We immediately received a call from here and we walked through our proposed surprise show for her.  After some discussion, we adjusted the show to her expectations regarding time line and music preference and immediately began refining her show.

 

SURPRISES ALL AROUND

Our 2 awesome singing waiters managed to surprise the fifty ladies (yes, all women at this birthday party) and we previously decided that our waiter, Allie would be a planted guest and at the “right” time, would be pulled into the show.  Actually, our waiter, Ben pulled her into the show through a brilliant rouse while he was posing the head waiter.  It never ceases to amaze guests when the waiter starts singing…and singing well.

As it became more evident that these waiters had skills, the show’s apex was some unique A Capella singing that went immediately into a song from the show Glee!, closing with Pharrell’s “Happy” (who doesn’t want to toe-tap to THAT?).

Mom and Daughter loved the show and what it brought to the party.  Guests had a great time and we did too!

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!

DECIDE WHO HE/SHE IS

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…

50TH BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

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.

HAVE A WINE AND CHEESE TASTING PARTY

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.

THE FIVE DAYS OF BIRTHDAY OPTION

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

PLAN A TRIP TOGETHER

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!”

MURDER MYSTERY SURPRISE

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!

HIRE A PROFESSIONAL CHEF TO COOK YOU DINNER

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.

ENTERTAIN GUESTS WITH A SPECIAL UP-CLOSE MAGICIAN

Magic is pretty cool for any birthday party.

MEET AT A DINNER CLUB

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

HIRE A PROFESSIONAL MIXOLOGIST (BARTENDER)

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.

HAVE A THEMED 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?

 COMMISSION A PORTRAIT

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…”

 HIRE AN 80s TRIBUTE BAND

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

 MAKE 50 THE MAGIC NUMBER

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.

 50 SECOND ROAST

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.
