4. Rustic 50th Birthday Parties

Taking a party outdoors and hosting a 50th birthday in lovely surroundings can be really special.

Let your environment be part of your 50th birthday party decorations and add some floral accents here and there (for instance, centerpieces) to create a wonderful rustic-themed birthday.

Rustic parties tend to be more relaxed and laidback which can be so much fun and a great way to take a get-together with your guests and take a trip down memory lane.

There are so many fun 50th birthday party ideas to choose from but a great way to celebrate such a significant milestone birthday is by throwing a fab retro-themed party, such as the '70s, '60s, and better still... the '50s.

Have your guest come dressed in 50's fashion, like leather jackets and full circle skirts, and set up a fab photo booth so you can take lots of photos and make lots of memories.

Whatever decade you decide to go with make sure you have a dance floor bashing out hits from that time in history.
