Sinatra Themed 70th Birthday Party

Chelsea PellegrinoContributor

Turning 70 is quite the milestone, but The Best is Yet to Come when you celebrate with a Frank Sinatra themed birthday party! Louis celebrated his 70th birthday with his friends, family and Frank Sinatra. The legendary singer inspired Louis' special night and photographer John Argueta of JargaPix Photography captured some great shots that illustrate how you can incorporate Old Blue Eyes into a celebration of your own.

One of the best things about this theme is that it can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose. Virtually any venue will work, but if you want to stay true to Sinatra style, choose a vintage-looking hall. With its marble floors and mahogany wall paneling, The Graycliff (Moonachie, NJ) was a perfect choice for Luis’ bash.

Décor is one of the most important aspects of a themed event. To take guests back to the 1940's, stick with a classic black and white decorations. Create fun and fancy centerpieces like the ones pictured by filling vases with glass beads and flapper-style feathers. You can even hang portraits or posters of the singer and his famous Rat Pack crew. Incorporate the singer’s love for New York with skyline print on place cards and menus.

A party isn't complete without entertainment, so be sure to book a DJ to spin all of the classics. But of course, what would the night be without Frank himself crooning his biggest hits? With a Frank Sinatra tribute act, guests are sure to be Dancing on the Ceiling!

Frank was famous for doing things “his way,” so instead of a typical guestbook, have friends and family sign a Frank Sinatra record. Like Louis, your guest of honor will have a forever keepsake to remember their special day. Come Rain or Come Shine, there’s no doubt that a swingin’ Sinatra themed 70th will be a hit among guests of all ages!
