Birthday / Semi-Retirement Party Ideas ?

Hi All ... I'm going to be 50 in Sept and my birthday present to me is that I am quitting my job and working my home biz only!
Soooo, since this is a double milestone for me, I want to have a fun and unique party!

Here is a bit about me to give you some ideas to help personalize this a bit.
I am a young and athletic 49, wife, mom, grandma , volunteer firefighter and emergency response trainer. My current job is office mgr, but will be doing only my home busines after Sept. Adventurous, loves camping, hiking, gardening, bowling, working out.
Not big into country or rap music and dont' mind experimenting with food, but for meat, I like to stick with the basics, beef, pork, and chicken or shrimp. Love all fruits and veggies.

Looking for themes, decor, food, drink and party game ideas ... whatcha got for me ? lol

  • Lets see you could have wait what is the weather like where you are? You could have a sea food party with a fruit salad and it could have the out door them drinks i'm not sure what you would like with sea food. If you dont like that you could still keep the out door them and have B.B.Q chicken with different kinds of salads. Hope you like some of my ideas i hope they are helpful. If i think of more i let you know. Have fun and let us know how it turns out for you.
