Great 60th Birthday Ideas, 60th Birthday Party Ideas
Here's some of the 60th birthday ideas I Had for my Mum's special day. Although she wasn't retiring and nothing would actually be any different, it's still a milestone isn't it?
A garden bench or swing
I remembered reading an article about a guy who does chainsaw carvings and recall my Mum admiring the photo's. So I went to see him, and was completely blown away by his creations. He showed me a new idea that he'd just had, making a planter out of a large log with an bear climbing out of it. It was perfect and I commissioned a planter with a badger climbing from it. It turned out just perfect , totally unique, and my mum adores it.
To give you some
60th birthday gift ideas,
here are some other things she received.
We discussed a few
60th birthday party ideas.
But Mum didn't really want much of a fuss so we arranged a girly night out with some friends. We went to the theatre to see 'When Harry Met Sally', after a lovely set menu dinner at the theatre.
After toying with some
60th birthday cake ideas
I decided to make some cupcakes instead of a cake. Just 6 on a plate, 1 for every-one.
Actually now Mum's birthday has passed, I've remembered that when I was an Italy earlier in the year I bought some authentic flavoured oils and coloured pasta as the base for an Italian Gift Basket, and guess what? It's still in the cupboard, I completely forgot about it until I started writing this! I'll have to think of some-one else who likes Italian food before the use by date!

Hire a classic car and take a trip to the theatre to see a play or musical
