Are you writing a 70th birthday speech for a relative or a friend and wondering just how to put one together that will convey exactly how you feel, make the birthday boy or girl feel great and also have the audience listening?
Its no easy task – you're dealing with so many different sets of people that it can be daunting. Let’s have a look at some of the things that you can do to come up with a great speech.
This also gives you time to make sure that the speech and the 70th birthday card match. You want to keep the same tone and theme to make the party even more beautiful.
This could save you a lot of face if there is something wrong with your speech that you have not seen yourself. Second opinions should come from someone who knows the birthday girl or boy very well.
You can ask their spouse, son or daughter for instance, if the 70th birthday speech that you have come up with is appropriate. Remember, this person is turning 70, a time when they may be beginning to feel like they are getting really old. It’s good to know their thoughts as they are now, so that your speech does not do anything to upset them, but rather, will make their day.
Finally, here is something that you can do if you're confident you’ve come up with a good speech. You can turn it into part of the gifts for the birthday boy or girl.
One of many good 70th birthday ideas is to have it made into a scroll,
the way they had them in ancient times, and then wrap it. They will
have heard the speech before they open the presents, but the fact that
they get it in writing, so beautifully crafted, will make them really
You can also have it framed in case you can’t get a scroll. They will see their 70th birthday speech always, and they will be reminded of how much love there was at that party.
