Commemorating a Milestone  Back to Events

Whether your best friend just turned the big 5-0 or your father is nearing 75, honor the landmark occasion with an extra-special party.

Silly gag gifts and old-age jokes are just one possible element of an "over-the-hill" party. Before you break out the denture cream and reading glasses, however, remember that friends who strive to conceal their ages may not find a gag party amusing.

Check out our milestone party tips so you host a memorable party that ensures everyone has a good time. Get guests into the party spirit with themed over-the-hill decorations.

Peruse the wine selection at your neighborhood Publix to find a wine that is aged to perfection—just like the guest of honor. And no matter how old you are, it's hard to resist a custom cake from your Publix Bakery.
