Birth­day

Birthday script for a woman

Not always a birth­day is a hol­i­day to which a pro­fes­sion­al pre­sen­ter is invit­ed. For many rea­sons (includ­ing the rea­son for sav­ings), peo­ple decide to take on the orga­ni­za­tion of a spe­cial day them­selves. And they suc­ceed at it. And if you don’t need to invent con­tests, tasks, nuances of the hol­i­day, but you can peep on the Inter­net, the mis­sion will def­i­nite­ly not seem impos­si­ble.

What to consider when preparing a script?

A hol­i­day at home for a woman is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to turn the evening into a show for the birth­day girl from ordi­nary table gath­er­ings with tra­di­tion­al toasts and typ­i­cal con­ver­sa­tions “about every­thing”. More­over, one that match­es her taste and is sure to impress the hero of the occa­sion.

Before writ­ing a script, you should read these rec­om­men­da­tions.

  1. Not a sin­gle item in the pro­gram should be from the series “what if it works out”. If there is not enough space for a full-fledged com­pe­ti­tion or task, then it is ini­tial­ly delet­ed from the script. You need to include only what can be unam­bigu­ous­ly car­ried out and not dis­tort the mean­ing of the task. Exam­ple: danc­ing, where you want to por­tray a “train” in a small liv­ing room, is not the best option.
  2. There must be absolute sur­pris­es in the script. For exam­ple, a birth­day girl has school friends who live far away. But in the era of social net­works, find­ing them, con­tact­ing them, ask­ing them to record a small con­grat­u­la­to­ry video is not such a prob­lem. But how unex­pect­ed and pleas­ant it would be to turn on such a video at the hol­i­day.
  3. You need to know the script by heart or close to the text. Even if these are just home gath­er­ings, and the orga­niz­ers of the hol­i­day are not actors at all, the man­ner of read­ing every­thing from a sheet and being inap­pro­pri­ate­ly shy at the same time is a rel­ic. Gen­uine atten­tion is excel­lent readi­ness, con­fi­dent com­mand of the script, which express­es respect and love for the birth­day girl. Yes, and those present will appre­ci­ate the lev­el of prepa­ra­tion.
  4. Do not include dubi­ous con­tests in the script. Tasks “with pep­per­corns” are not liked by every­one. More­over, many peo­ple there­fore avoid going to ddings and anniver­saries, because they do not like such tasks. And you can almost always do with­out them. To laugh, to have fun, to be nos­tal­gic — oth­er typ­i­cal tasks and com­pe­ti­tions are enough for this.
  5. If the pro­gram is too dynam­ic, those present will not be able to relax. There is no need to issue com­pe­ti­tion after com­pe­ti­tion, and even those requir­ing great activ­i­ty from the guests. Let a quick com­pe­ti­tion be replaced by a task where guests are most­ly just spec­ta­tors. After a cou­ple of com­pe­ti­tions, there should be a pause for com­mu­ni­ca­tion and treats.
  6. It is nec­es­sary to deter­mine in advance who will record the event (pho­to / video). It’s great if then the chron­i­cle of the hol­i­day, select­ed, prop­er­ly designed, comes to the birth­day girl and each guest by e‑mail.
  7. The script should nev­er end. The finale is made bright — either it ends with some­thing grandiose (like fire­works or fire­works), or with some­thing cham­ber, but lyri­cal and mem­o­rable (com­mon song by can­dle­light).

And, of course, the more detailed the script, the more con­fi­dent the pre­sen­ter feels.

Age Options

16-year-old and 17-year-old girls make up a youth sce­nario or the pro­gram that is as close as pos­si­ble to the inter­ests of the birth­day girl and can involve her friends in the fun. At 22–25 years old, these are often sce­nar­ios that are also based on the pro­fes­sion­al activ­i­ties of the girl. But cheer­ful incen­di­ary par­ties can be arranged for old­er women: 39, 41, 45, 46 years old is no rea­son to turn a hol­i­day into some­thing pre­ten­tious, full of offi­cial­dom.

Birth­days aged 56 and over may be asso­ci­at­ed with a vul­ner­a­ble peri­od for a woman — she is retir­ing, but does not want to empha­size this. Hov­er, even if this hap­pens in 61, the essence does not change.

But for ladies old­er than 70, 75 (77, 78, 79 years old), pen­sion is no longer per­ceived as a hint of age, and ladies eval­u­ate their old­er years as alth and a rea­son to gath­er the whole fam­i­ly for a hol­i­day.

Fea­tures of sce­nar­ios for dif­fer­ent ages.

  • 16–20 years old. If this is a hol­i­day where both friends and rel­a­tives gath­er, need uni­fy­ing, neu­tral com­pe­ti­tions that are under­stand­able to every­one. You can focus on com­ic tasks, drama­ti­za­tions of fairy tales, musi­cal num­bers. Com­pe­ti­tions relat­ed to child­hood mem­o­ries (pho­tos and videos) with the birth­day girl will fit per­fect­ly into the pro­gram.
  • 20–30 years old. Hold­ing a hol­i­day just for friends is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to focus on com­mon tastes and inter­ests, favorite music, etc. If peo­ple of dif­fer­ent ages have gath­ered for a birth­day, com­pro­mis­es need to be found. For exam­ple, offer neu­tral tasks like a com­pli­ment con­test, the best audio descrip­tion of the birth­day girl, draw­ing her por­trait “blind­ly”. But in order to bring the old­er gen­er­a­tion up to the real­i­ties of the time, you can arrange a mod­ern pho­to zone in the house (in the form of a social net­work win­dow, for exam­ple) or shoot a video with all and quick­ly edit it, show­ing the result at the end of the hol­i­day.
  • 30–40 years old. This is still a very young female age, but still there are more com­mon themes and inter­ests with old­er guests. And watched movies, and favorite music. There­fore, this can be put in the basis of the script. The main thing is to avoid speech­es and eye­lin­ers about wis­dom, grow­ing up: while you should not focus on this, it can be per­ceived ambigu­ous­ly.
  • 40–50 years old. For a birth­day girl of this age cat­e­go­ry, a hol­i­day can be orga­nized by their own grown chil­dren. They will approach this mat­ter with humor, they know their moth­er ll. And at the same time, it will be inter­est­ing for all guests to play youth games, and the birth­day moth­er will be hap­py with such agili­ty from chil­dren.
  • 50–60 years old. Quite often, at this age, women begin to be more rev­er­ent about their birth­days. Because it becomes an occa­sion to gath­er the whole fam­i­ly, to see rel­a­tives, chil­dren and grand­chil­dren, to meet with neigh­bors not in every­day life, but at the fes­tive table. And the more guests gath­er, the more the hol­i­day needs a con­duc­tor. There­fore, per­haps, not one per­son-orga­niz­er is need­ed here, but a whole team.
  • 60–70 years old. Not all peo­ple at this age sum up, but many think about it. There­fore, it is not worth repeat­ing these ideas in the script, there will be a bust. It is bet­ter to make good fam­i­ly com­pe­ti­tions, with the help of pho­tos and mem­o­ries of con­tem­po­raries, to recall the youth of the birth­day girl, but with­out loud toasts from the “draw the line” series.
  • 70–80 years and more. The main con­di­tion of the pro­gram is not to tire the guests. Many of them will be of respectable age, and there­fore you need to be as tact­ful as pos­si­ble and not do any­thing that will not allow guests to relax. Bet­ter the pro­gram will be not very big, in many respects nos­tal­gic, musi­cal. Let it be kind words from the guests, said in a cir­cle, or a beau­ti­ful pre­sen­ta­tion on the big screen as the cen­ter­piece of the evening.

It is advis­able to inquire in advance which com­pa­ny will gath­er at the hol­i­day. You can add infor­ma­tion about unfa­mil­iar guests: a pro­fes­sion, per­haps tal­ents, or some flat­ter­ing moments of a biog­ra­phy.

When the host knows those present ll, the sto­ry of their friend­ship and the birth­day girl, it always cap­ti­vates.

Interesting scenarios for a colleague

A hol­i­day orga­nized by a col­league is not uncom­mon. Espe­cial­ly if it is an anniver­sary, and it is cus­tom­ary in the team to pay such atten­tion to anniver­saries.

Sam­ple sce­nario plan.

  • Start. You can start unex­pect­ed­ly and include a film about the hero of the day. Shoot it in advance using var­i­ous pho­tos. This is always inter­est­ing, because many col­leagues know each oth­er only through work, and pho­tos from ordi­nary life rep­re­sent a com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent per­son. You can also include pre-record­ed video post­cards from those who can­not attend the cel­e­bra­tion.
  • Rap con­grat­u­la­tions. Per­haps such an incen­di­ary con­tin­u­a­tion of the hol­i­day will already con­sol­i­date the dis­po­si­tion, open­ness of the guests and will become an appro­pri­ate stage in the first part of the cel­e­bra­tion. And there are sev­er­al options: either find rap per­form­ers ready for such a show in advance, or arrange an impromp­tu. There will be text, there will be a beat, and the par­tic­i­pants on the stage will read it “live”. Nat­u­ral­ly, the text is sim­ple, the speed is not fast, so as not to turn the hol­i­day into an extreme test.

  • Blitz. It’s time for a com­pe­ti­tion where every­one will par­tic­i­pate. The facil­i­ta­tor should ask ques­tions that can be ansred with only one word. Ques­tions should relate to the birth­day girl, her pro­fes­sion­al activ­i­ties, etc. And they should be ridicu­lous­ly provoca­tive. For exam­ple: “What do you like to do with (name of the birth­day girl): sub­mit a report and receive praise from the author­i­ties or drink tea with deli­cious cakes and dream about a vaca­tion?”

  • stag­ing. You can imag­ine a birth­day cel­e­bra­tion with­out the­atrics, but why, if it’s fun. Fairy tales, per­haps, are tired of many, but mod­ern per­for­mances are some­thing more orig­i­nal. A sim­ple exam­ple of text that is fun­ny and inter­est­ing to visu­al­ize. “It was a lan­guid, uncom­fort­able evening. Char­lie Chap­lin nt out into the city to admire the snow-cov­ered streets. He walked, afraid of slip­ping on the ice. A set girl came out to meet him, she laughed out loud and curt­seyed to him. The girl was replaced by a nim­ble lit­tle dog who barked mer­ri­ly at Char­lie. Rarely passed a car, sig­nal­ing Char­lie. He nt into the can­dy store, the door creaked, the sales­woman squealed. She wrapped Char­lie in the most deli­cious cakes, and he made her laugh in grat­i­tude. It was win­ter out­side, howl­ing and blow­ing Char­lie’s thoughts away. He still fell on the ice, but was not upset, but smiled and waved his hand to us all. It’s sim­ple, cute and fun­ny. Espe­cial­ly if you remem­ber that the actors need to show the dog, and the creak­ing door, and the howl­ing win­ter.
  • Table com­pe­ti­tions. This is fol­lod by a series of table com­pe­ti­tions, for which you do not need to go up on stage. These can be the stan­dard “mind-read­ing hat”, “toasts, where all the words start with one let­ter”, “pep­py tongue twisters com­pe­ti­tion”, etc.
  • lyri­cal end­ing. Often, guests pre­pare a song for the birth­day girl. They take her favorite or sim­ply suit­able com­po­si­tion (so as not to be repeat­ed and be banal, prefer­ably mod­ern), shift the text and sing all togeth­er. Soloists can be iden­ti­fied. This will be a ded­i­ca­tion song. You can also do this: on a pre-made paper lantern, col­leagues put their own paint­ings (prefer­ably also in advance), this lantern is passed around in a cir­cle. Who­ev­er holds it in his hands should strict­ly wish some­thing to the birth­day girl in one sen­tence.

The pro­gram can be short­ened if it does not involve a full-fledged evening, leav­ing only the main com­pe­ti­tions, accord­ing to the orga­niz­ers.

Ideas for a relative

Con­tests and tasks of a fam­i­ly birth­day par­ty held with­out a toast­mas­ter may part­ly repeat the steps that are men­tioned in the sce­nario for a col­league.

For Mom

More often, the daugh­ter takes over the orga­ni­za­tion of the pro­gram. If a small com­pa­ny gath­ers, then one per­son can han­dle it.

Exam­ples of tasks and com­pe­ti­tions.

  • “While every­one is at home.” This is an impromp­tu sto­ry­telling con­test. It is very sim­ple, but always ll received. The host starts first: “Some­how every­one gath­ered at home and decid­ed to cook …”. The per­son sit­ting next to the leader picks up the text and con­tin­ues. And so in a cir­cle. As a result, a col­lec­tive sto­ry will come out, in most cas­es fun­ny and very accu­rate­ly indi­cat­ing the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the char­ac­ters of fam­i­ly mem­bers, their habits, rec­og­niz­able words, etc.
  • “Fam­i­ly of Excel­lence”. It’s a com­pli­ment con­test. Each of the guests must say what he learned from the birth­day girl for the “five”. For exam­ple, a daugh­ter will say that she learned how to cook pies for the “five”, and her hus­band will say that he learned to be heard, etc.
  • “The warmth of our hands.” Par­tic­i­pants of the com­pe­ti­tion are giv­en a piece of plas­ticine. In a cou­ple of min­utes, they must blind what they asso­ciate with the birth­day girl. While some are sculpt­ing, oth­er guests are invit­ed to ansr the ques­tions of the ques­tion­naire.
  • Ques­tion­naire for Mom. Mom is asked 10 (as many as pos­si­ble) ques­tions, this is done even before the hol­i­day. And at the fes­ti­val, the same ques­tions are already being asked to the guests. It will be clear how ll they know the birth­day girl.
  • “Year after year”. The host calls the year, and the guests must guess what mem­o­rable hap­pened that year regard­ing the biog­ra­phy of the hero of the occa­sion. This usu­al­ly caus­es humor­ous con­fu­sion and every­one is hap­py and cheer­ful.

Impor­tant! The best prin­ci­ple of cel­e­brat­ing is to alter­nate beten a calm com­pe­ti­tion that does not require leav­ing the table, with a more active one. You can do this: 2 calm — 1 active — 1 sur­prise.

A sur­prise means either a video post­card, or a gift, or a cre­ative num­ber from one of the guests.

For grandma

It is even eas­i­er for grand­chil­dren to unite and spend a hol­i­day for their beloved grand­moth­er — both in a cafe and at home.

What to sat­u­rate the pro­gram?

  • “Box of mem­o­ry” (or “box”). In it you need to col­lect items that are an attribute of some mile­stone in the fate of the birth­day girl. For exam­ple, a school cer­tifi­cate, a sou­venir brought from a resort, a tag from a mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal, etc. And each guest must get the sub­ject (blind­ly). Or some of the guests, as far as enough items. First, he sug­gests what the sig­nif­i­cance of the thing is, and then the birth­day girl either con­firms her words or says the cor­rect ver­sion.
  • “Pho­to tour”. You need to scan pho­tos of your grand­moth­er from dif­fer­ent years and make a pre­sen­ta­tion or slideshow out of them. Dur­ing view­ing, you need to choose a guide (one or more), whose task is to com­ment on the pho­to with­out leav­ing the image of a pro­fes­sion­al guide.
  • “Hap­py Jam” In advance, you need to draw and cut out a jar from thick paper or card­board. Large enough for all guests to see. Fix in a con­ve­nient place (bring an easel, for exam­ple). Guests are giv­en paint­ed halves of fruits and berries. The task is to write a wish on each. Guests write and attach these halves to a paper can on dou­ble-sided tape. Then the pre­sen­ter reads out the “recipe”, from which this jam was pre­pared.
  • “Musi­cal Nos­tal­gia”. Frag­ments of songs or melodies that grand­moth­er likes and are asso­ci­at­ed with some events in her life are record­ed in advance. A school waltz is a grad­u­a­tion, a pop­u­lar hit is a song that sound­ed at dances in youth, etc. The task of the guests is to guess how these songs are con­nect­ed with the biog­ra­phy of the birth­day girl.

Exam­ples of con­tests from pro­grams for mom and grand­moth­er can also be used in a birth­day script for an aunt or oth­er rel­a­tives.

Organization of a holiday for a beloved girl

And a few more tips for a man who under­took to orga­nize a hol­i­day for his beloved.

Help­ful Hints:

  • if pho­tographs are used for com­pe­ti­tions, you need to be sure that the birth­day girl likes all these pic­tures;
  • you can not take the girl’s pride (for exam­ple, she draws or embroi­ders) with­out tak­ing her per­mis­sion — per­haps she would have cho­sen oth­ers to demon­strate to guests;
  • great if the orga­niz­er asks the rel­a­tives of his belovedlearns from them inter­est­ing sto­ries from her child­hood and writes real cas­es into the out­line of the script;
  • if you are already arrang­ing a hol­i­day, then on the prin­ci­ple of “all inclu­sive”: and clean­ing, and invi­ta­tions, and even cook­ing is also on the orga­niz­er;
  • some com­pe­ti­tions require pre­lim­i­nary prepa­ra­tion, includ­ing from guests: you can write to them, ask them to remem­ber some case, come up with a toast or a poem about the birth­day girl in advance, per­haps com­pose a song.

Let the hol­i­day turn out to be won­der­ful, regard­less of the short or long pro­gram and the num­ber of guests!
