Hang pictures of her from her childhood up to the present along with her family and friends, including school pictures, wedding pictures, and family pictures.

You can also have 50 of her family and friends line up and say one adjective each that best describes the celebrant. It is either serious, sentimental, or funny, still you are assured it will liven up the gathering.

To make it more memorable, celebrate the party in an exceptional place. It can be the celebrant’s ancestral home, a boat, vacation resort or elegant hotel. Give this special lady the best 50th birthday ever; after all, it only happens once in a lifetime.
