What are some good birthday ideas for my mom's 50th?!

Question: It will be in June, in Denver, and want to do something everyone can come enjoy, maybe outside. It's 50 so it's a big deal, any good ideas? Are there traditional things to do for a 50th?

hmmm a collage maybe of everyone of her friends or everyone she knows would be great. but most of all your family, and her close friends would be perfect

When my ex-husband turned 50, I had invitations printed up with photos of him at 6 mo, 6 yrs, and 16 yrs. The invitations said "Turning 50 on (date), bring something that's older than he is!" He got a lot of gifts that were pretty cool. One friend even brought him an antique cabinet!
