it will be better if you have the party in the day time because most of the guests in their 80s or 90s will not be able to drive at night. The night time will not be much convenient for them. Keeping a party in the daytime will allow more guests to come easily and enjoy as per their convenience.

Little surprises

You have to make sure that the food you keep for the party is light enough to be easily eaten by the guests. Because your guests aged between 70 to 90 years will not be able to have a heavy meal. So, it will be better that you order something, or rather cook the food yourself that will be loved by them.


party sweets

Elderly people love sweet. Not much but even a little amount would make them happy. So, as a dessert, you can have cookies or cup cakes. That will make the guests feel elated at your choice and how you have kept their likings in your mind. Mostly. Elderly people have sugar issues. So.
