Golden Birthday

What is a golden birthday?

Simply put, it is when you are turning the same age as the date you were born.

For example, if you were born on January 16th, the year you turn 16 would be your "golden" birthday.

If you were born on October 9, the year you turn 9 would be the golden one.

Obviously, many people celebrate this very special birthday without knowing what it is and they find out too late! But if you can catch it in time to celebrate it, you can make it special because, after all, it only happens once in a lifetime!

If you are planning your event and realize it is a golden occasion, here are some ideas to help use gold as your party theme or as part of it.

One fun idea is to take a golden celebration and expand into a Casino Party (think James Bond Golden Eye).

Actually, anytime you can mix a treasure hunt into your birthday party plans would be fun...such as:

Western Party (adults)
Western Party (for Teens)
Pirate Party
Indiana Jones Party
Another fun birthday celebration idea is to do a Willy Wonka Party, with the “Golden Ticket” as the birthday invitation to your event!
