75th Birthday Backdrops
Looking for impressive bang for your buck? An oversized background is such an easy decoration that your guests will be sure to notice!
Hang the backdrop over your dessert table, or create an impromptu photo booth by hanging it on the wall (Removable Command squares are an easy way to hang it) . The backdrop pictured above is a clever way to show what life was like 75 years ago.
Every party needs a little bling – and I’ve found some lovely 75th birthday party decorations that will set a cheerful tone for your celebration!
It’s not really all that difficult to decorate for a memorable party. Hanging a banner or putting up a sign in the front yard is a wonderful way to greet your guests.
Add coordinating tableware and a few balloons and you’ve set the scene for a festive event!

Not to worry, though – once I got the idea to look for personalized party decorations, I was able to find several places to order decorations that can be customized for a 75th birthday event. Here are my top picks – just click on the picture to find out more details about each theme.

One of the easiest ways to make your party stand out is to decorate with a banner that sets the tone for the party.
Shindigz is my top pick for personalized banners.
They offer a fabulous selection of personalized birthday party banners that can be customized to say “75th Birthday”.
I especially like the photo banner pictured on the right, since you can show how the guest of honor looked at 3 different ages.
They also have an amazing collection of themed party banners, which can also be personalized with the guest’s name and age.
Prices start at around $15, so personalized banners are an affordable way to make a huge statement at your celebration.
Personalized Bottle Labels
Obviously, you’ll need to serve beverages at your party – and personalized bottle labels are an easy way to add style to your drinks!
You’ll find a vast array of personalized bottle labels at Shindigz.
Choose from water bottle labels, wine bottle labels or beer bottle labels – any of which can be personalized for a 75th birthday celebration.
If you’re having a themed party, you’ll find bottle labels in a variety of colorful themes.
Look for the fun photo bottle labels – just upload a favorite snapshot of the birthday man or woman to create a sure-to-be-talked-about decoration!
What’s a party without a bit of something sweet?
Impress your guests by offering personalized candy treats at your celebration.
You have loads of choices of types of candy, each with several different themes to choose from. Choices include:
- Chocolate bars -choose regular size bars or miniatures. You can order just the wrappers if you’d rather, or choose milk chocolate, dark chocolate, dark chocolate with mint, or crispy milk chocolate.
- Lollipops – your choice of chocolate or candy swirl.
- Mint tins – includes small peppermints.
- Chewing gum slider packs – with sugar-free peppermint gum.
- Candy jars – fill the individual-sized candy jars with your choice of candies
Life Sized Standee Decoration
A unique and charming decoration to greet guests with, or to let everyone know where the party is!
Just upload a favorite photo of the guest of honor, and Shindigz will create a life-sized full color standee.
You can have the image cropped to be the exact shape, or you can choose a rectangle. Combine it with a motion-activated voice recorder to greet your guests or provide directions at a large party.
For a 75th birthday, it might be fun to order several of these with pictures of the birthday celebrant at different ages (at under $25 each, it won’t cost a fortune).
Someone close can’t attend the party? They can if you create a life-size standee! Be sure to take pics of everyone at the party with the standee and send it to the absentee guest.
Don’t be surprised if the standee turns out to be the life of the party! It’s perfect for photo ops, starting conversations, and guests love to take them for a spin on the dance floor.
If you want this party to be the talk of the town, then you need to start with first impressions.
Your guests will be wowed when they walk through a personalized arch that perfectly fits the theme of the party.
I’ve pictured the Paris arch on the left, but there are loads of other themes to choose from – cowboy, Hawaiian, disco, cruise ship, Hollywood and more.
These oversized arches (up to 10″ tall) do require a little bit of work (and some extra hands), so be sure to allow extra time to set one up.
Perfect for photo ops, and a sure conversation -an extravagant arch like this sets the stage for a memorable celebration!
Personalized Photo Stand Ins
Party guests will love taking their pictures with the guest of honor in a fun photo stand in like the one pictured here.
Shindigz has many different stand ins available; just pick your favorite theme.
Some of the options include Western, motorcycle, 50s, Aloha, backyard BBQ – too many to list here!
Some of the photo stand ins offer a single photo opening.
If you opt for one with two photo openings, be sure to take a picture of everyone with the guest of honor – a great souvenir for everyone!
I was amazed to find that theses are priced at well under $40 – a fairly inexpensive party centerpiece that will bring excitement to your party.
