Ah, youth isn’t on your side anymore. You’ll get teased about creaking bones and aching muscles, but so what? Find some humor in it! You may even need some muscle pain relievers after all the dancing and games.

When we say be proud of your age, we mean it. And we want you to put it up there for the world to see. Do it with these glistening gold 50 balloons. They can be hung on the wall or used as hand-held photo booth props. Have fun with both floating and non-floating variants!

These are way too adorable! Give your guests a glimpse of your childhood by putting up one of your photos as a young kid on your invitation. If they can’t get enough of it, display some more of them at the 50th birthday party itself.

Don’t forget the desserts! Life at 50 can be sweet or bittersweet – but at least there’s still a hint of sweetness, right? A gold-crusted “Happy Birthday” topper is the only thing this white rosette cake needs. But if you prefer for your age to literally shine, head over to Ella Celebration for an equally glamorous “50 and Fabulous” topper.

Who would you like to invite to your mid-life celebration? At 50, you must have loved, lost, gained, and won back a lot of people. Celebrate your life with the people who matter the most. Are you a big party kind of person or would you rather keep it small and intimate? Either way is perfectly acceptable. Some people would like to celebrate their 50 meaningful years with a big crowd - all the people who have been instrumental in living through it. Meanwhile, there are other people who would rather take it easy. This milestone merits some reflection on the lessons and memories, and this is done best by celebrating with only a handful of people.

You have a treasure trove of good and bad memories. That is an achievement worth celebrating!
