Hire a Wine Connesieur

Ah, the big 6-0. It just screams sophistication and wisdom, doesn’t it? And what better way to celebrate this milestone than by hiring a wine connoisseur to educate you and your loved ones on the finer points of wine? Because let’s face it, at this age, you really should know more than just red or white. Impress your guests with your newfound knowledge on tannins, acidity, and all those fancy wine terms that you’ve always pretended to understand. And who knows, maybe you’ll even discover a new favourite vintage to sip on during your retirement years. So go ahead and treat yourself to a little refined indulgence. You deserve it. Cheers to 60 years!

Hire a Private Chef

Let’s face it, spending hours and hours in the kitchen preparing for your 60th dinner party is not what you had in mind for your special day. And let’s not even mention the amount of money you’ll end up spending on ingredients that you’ll never use again. Why bother when you can hire a private chef to do all the hard work for you? It’s time to ditch the TikTok recipes and say goodbye to the Saffron you’ll never use again. Sit back, relax, and let your private chef impress your mates with their culinary skills while you spend your time enjoying the party – it’s your day after all!

Perfect for a formal dinner party and those who love wonderful food!

Hire a Property for the Weekend

Ah, milestones – a time to celebrate with family members and friends. But why settle for just one night of excessive drinking and regretful decisions? Why not extend the party and really live it up? Hiring a property for the weekend is the perfect solution! And with a large group, you can all chip in for the cost, making it the perfect excuse to drain your bank account and feel like a millionaire for a couple of days. With options ranging from majestic mansions to modern properties with all the bells and whistles, you’re sure to find the perfect spot to get your party on. And with the added bonus of not needing to worry about how much alcohol you consume because you’re already home, every family member can enjoy themselves without the need for a designated driver or having to call an Uber. So embrace the high life and hire a fancy property for your next milestone celebration – because who needs responsible decision-making anyway?

Live Music

Oh, sure. You could just settle for plugging in your speakers and hitting shuffle on your Spotify playlist, but where’s the fun in that? If you’re celebrating your 60th birthday, why not do it in style? Hire a professional musician to add that extra special touch to the occasion. From jazz bands to pianists and everything in between, you’ll be able to match the vibe to perfectly suit the celebration. And let’s be real, live music just hits differently. So go ahead and ditch the predictable playlist, and opt for the unforgettable experience that a professional musician can provide. It’s the ideal way to mark this milestone birthday.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

Oh, you want to give someone a unique gift? May I suggest strapping them into a basket and lifting them thousands of feet into the air in a giant balloon? Yes, that’s right, a hot air balloon ride! It’s the perfect way to say “I care about you, but also enjoy watching you squirm.” I mean, who wouldn’t want to spend an hour or so floating above the earth, completely at the mercy of the wind? And let’s not forget the added bonus of potentially getting stuck in a tree or landing in a lake. It’s all part of the thrill, right?

Don’t worry if you have a fear of heights- or do. You’ll come down eventually. It’s the perfect adventurous birthday treat.

So go ahead, give that special someone a gift they’ll never forget (whether they want to or not). Optional extras for the birthday girl: life insurance 🙂

Themed Costume Party

Well, well, well, if it isn’t the perfect excuse to dress up as your favourite childhood character and act like a complete buffoon. Who doesn’t love a good ol’ fancy-dress party? It’s the only place where you can show up in a banana suit and not be judged. Plus, it’s the perfect ice breaker – no one can resist a laugh at the sight of your husband in his ill-fitting superhero spandex. So dust off those old costumes, embrace your inner child, and get ready for a night of laughter and embarrassment. Who needs to be grown up anyway?

Ideal for party themes that range from the wild and wacky to the sophisticatedly surreal.

Rent a Yacht

Looking to live like a movie star without actually having to shell out millions of dollars? Look no further, my friend. Renting a yacht for the day will give you the lifetime experience of pretending to be a big shot. Why bother with the cautionary “save for rainy day” mantra when you can just throw caution to the wind and rent a yacht? Sure, it might cost a pretty penny, but hey, what’s a price tag compared to the priceless memories you’ll make while sunbathing and sipping champagne on the high seas?

Invite guests upon board to enjoy a birthday celebration that’ll surely make waves.

So throw on your oversized sunglasses and hop aboard the yacht of your dreams, because today, my friend, you’re a millionaire (or at least you can pretend to be one).

Host a Murder Mystery Night

Are you searching for a way to make your special milestone even more memorable? Look no further than hosting a Murder Mystery Night!

Who knows, maybe they’ll even provide some award-winning performances that will have your guests on the edge of their seats. And, let’s be real, even if their acting isn’t quite up to par, it will still beat the awkwardness of your Dad hamming it up as a detective. Embrace the chaos, embrace the fun, and let’s see who will be the first one to crack the case.

Whatever you decide for your 60th, it’s important to plan a party that provides talking points, icebreaking moments and memories that will last a lifetime. So don’t settle for the same old dinner party in your local pub – push the boundaries and really make this milestone celebration one to remember!

Swap the beer for bubbly and ditch the takeaway for good food or even a private chef. Hire a property for the weekend, hire in some live music and let your guests show off their costumes at a themed party. Or, if you’re feeling really adventurous, rent a yacht or hot air balloon to mark this special occasion.

And for the ultimate 60th birthday gift, hire a close-up magician to bring a smile to everyone’s face with their amazing illusions and sleight of hand. Fond memories of this special milestone are just around the corner.

About Chris

Who is Chris, you may ask? Well, buckle up, because you’re in for a story. First things first, Chris is a magician. Not the pull-a-rabbit-out-of-a-hat type, but a close-up magician. This lad is all about delivering astonishing illusions right under your nose. He’s got the kind of skills that make you question reality and wonder if you’ve accidentally walked into a Hogwarts convention.

But Chris is more than just a man with a deck of cards. He’s a seasoned party aficionado who knows how to turn your average shindig into an unforgettable event. He’s the life of the party, the king of banter, and the master of fun. He’s got an endless supply of sarcastic remarks, and a sense of humour drier than the Sahara desert.

When Chris isn’t stunning his audience with his magic or lighting up a party, he’s likely enjoying a good laugh or an expensive coffee at the local cafe.

So, next time you’re planning a milestone celebration, remember Chris. He’ll not only provide the entertainment but also leave your guests questioning their reality, and more importantly, who their favourite magician is.
