What are some creative surprises that I can do for my Grandma's 90th bday party?

Asked by dans85 (109points) February 21st, 2007
There will be a photo montage, and the party itself is a surprise, but I wanted to put together something meaningful and clever for her from all the grandkids.

write a spoof song and sing it all together. y'all will be blushing from embarassment, but she will love it.

i think we've used out the spoof song's welcome due to multiple bar-mitzvahs in recent years...

what about using iMovie to make your own mini-"this is your life" documentary with all her friends and family commenting? This could be a lot of work, but creative and fun. Or, a book where each grandkid writes a one-page letter to can bind the book yourself as an artsy project, or have it bound at Kinkos.

My mother came up with her own idea for her 85th birthday. She asked all of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to write her a short letter recounting a memorable experience between her and the relative. She kept those letters until she died. And it made the rest of us zero in on a lovely memory. She was a very wise woman!

I second peggylou's recommendation. It would be a lovely idea to get all the grandkids to write something - a memory, a story, a special remembrance - that you could put together as a small book that she could keep & look over again & again. If you're looking for questions or a place to start, I actually wrote a little something about this topic that you can find here:

It not only will mean something special to your grandmother, but once she's gone, it will be invaluable to those she leaves behind to remember what she was like & the impact she had on your lives.

Just having a get together, a big family dinner with all the children and grandchildren think would make her very happy. We love you Grandama!!

I think contacting the white house and requesting a birthday letter from the president would be a very nice surprise.. I’m certain that they have a program for just such a request.. Go here for more instructions and the address to write to:
