Gold + Soul: Inspiration for a ‘70s Themed 50th Birthday Party

Crossing the mid-century mark is pretty huge! No matter if you can only have a small at-home celebration this year, a drive-by birthday parade, or even a virtual gathering. You can still live it up a little with a cool throwback-themed 50th birthday bash!
Glitz up the party setting (even if it will only be seen on-screen) with gold accents and glitter on black. Then, get your guests (both actual and virtual) stepping and swaying to ‘70s “soul music” playing in the background. The beat is on! (*this post contains affiliate links)

The ‘70s were a really cool time to grow up in. So mark your 50th with fun references to that era like this “Back in 1970” Poster (1) that lists all the throwback trivia. In your yard or entryway, display a Custom 50th Birthday Party Personalized Welcome Yard Sign (2) that lets everyone know what you’re celebrating! (Both are available on Amazon.)

Even a 50th birthday party has got to have cake and balloons, right? Have a specially ordered Chocolate Mousse Torte Cake (3) like this one from Bake Me a Wish. And create a backdrop of oversized gold and confetti 50th Birthday Balloons (4 – available on Amazon).

Don throwback attire and accessories, like this “50 Never Looked So Good” baseball cap and sash (5 – available on Amazon) for some photo fun. And of course, you’ve got to have the party music to move to with a classic “Soul of the ‘70s” CD collection (7) from Time Life.

Time to bid guests good-bye? Or thank drive-by greeters? Prepare glittery gold and black “Cheers to 50 Years” gift bags (6 – available on Amazon). And fill them with treats and novelty gifts and keepsakes of the past 5 decades.

The party must go on (despite the limitations)—especially for this golden occasion. Happy 50th!
