90th Birthday Party Ideas

It is important to think through a party for this age group - especially since some of the guests may have mobility issues to consider.

90th Party Venue

One of the most important things to consider for a 90th birthday celebration is accessibility.

There may be people arriving in wheelchairs and you need to make sure there are no steps to get in the way. Wheelchairs need to be able to get in and out easily.

Similarly, check that the toilets are accessible and easy to use.

Parking needs to be carefully thought through as well. Most people will probably be arriving by car and some may need to be close to the main entrance.

If the birthday person is in a residential home, consider having the party there. This will be less stressful and the birthday person will be in familiar surroundings. Most centres have a large dining room that could be used for this purpose and they may even be happy to provide the food for an agreed fee .
