We love the idea of sending an 80th birthday message to the Honoree on their birthday. This is perhaps the easiest strategy to involve everyone no matter where they live.

A virtual party ensures that everyone gets in on the fun. Relax, planning a virtual party is quite similar to an in-person party. Start with an invitation via online or mail. Once you have a date and time, focus on the theme, decorations, party favors and games. Consider mailing party kits to the guests, so that everyone invited can participate...80th birthday hat, noise makers, balloons, etc.
It's always a good idea to choose a video conferencing method that is familiar to most, such as Zoom or Facebook. That information should be included on the invitation, along with the time including the time zone if needed.
Many great ideas were born out of necessity. If your senior wishes to socially distance, consider a car parade. There is more than one approach...
Plan a car parade to drive by the Honoree's place of residence. Seat the Honoree in a special place, so they can see and be seen by parade participants. It gets pretty exciting as the cars ride by with horns honking and loved ones waving.
Plan a parade tour of special family and friends that the Honoree would love to visit. Decorate your car and follow the route. Be sure to notify participants of approximate time of arrival.
With either plan, be sure everyone is informed of the parade date and time, along with any special instructions i.e. car decorating, etc. Then put your best 80th birthday ideas for men forward with age appropriate car parade decorations, 80th birthday yard signs and party favors to host an unforgettable celebration.
