Over The Hill

If the birthday girl or boy has a sense of humor about hitting the 50th milestone, create a birthday celebration with an “Over the Hill” theme. This fun party can be held at a restaurant, bar or a family member’s home. Decorate using black balloons, black table clothes, black chair covers, black napkins & black dinnerware to set the “mournful” mood.  Contrast the black decor with white christmas lights around the room, dinner tables and gift table. Add a humorous graveyard themed cake and other funeral themed decorations like cardboard grave stones to give everyone a laugh. Instead of the typical birthday gift, encourage your guests to purchase silly gifts like a senior citizen survival kit or a depends adult diaper cake. Top the party off with personalized chocolate favor like our item SBP15 Over the Hill Times.
