Your chosen theme will help set the tone for the whole party. You will need to consider who your guests are, what age, how many etc etc. But one thing is true for all parties, whatever the age, the goal is always for everyone to have fun.
50th Birthday Themes
Anyone born in the 1960's will be turning, or have just turned, 50 years old. So why not celebrate the 60's era with a costume party.
Make this one of your 50th birthday party games by having a costume parade and prizes for best and worst dressed, best couple etc.
Along with the costume, why not add some special music. Get a copy of this Pure 80'sPop Music CDs) and turn your party into an 80's dance party.
The hardest part of a surprise party, it keeping it a surprise! Rather than just having the guests jump out all together shouting "surprise!" Stagger the surprises. Have different guests turning up at different times, or being "found" by the birthday person as they move around the house, if it's being held at home.
Change venues and have guests turn up at different venues. This works well at a hotel, and great if guests can't all arrive at the same time.
For example, have some of the surprise guests being "found" in the lobby. More early bird guests are discovered at the bar where drinks are served, as the small group move to the restaurant (near the bar) for food, more surprise guests are waiting. If there are guests that can't make the dinner, then they may be able to arrive later as the birthday cake is served and can join the group for after diner drinks and coffees in the lounge area.
One for the girls. A spa day party. It can be inexpensive, by having one at home. Simply buy some quality products and set them out on a table along with everything they will need to pamper themselves.
You could arrange for a beauty therapist to vista your home and proved a demonstration of their own products. I recently had an afternoon tea party and a Mary Kay consultant came along with everything we needed. You can of course splash out and visit a local day spa.
For an extra special day why not hire a limo or a hummer to carry the guests in style? Afternoon tea style food is an ideal accompaniment to any spa day birthday party.
Add some fun games to ensure that your guest of honor has a truly Happy 50th Birthday!
The host reads aloud each category. When a guest wants to 'fess up, they shout "I did it!" You can decide how gory you want the details they share to be. Super fun! You can play this, while your nails are drying or after as you relax in the lounge.

Use the unique cut-out award trophies for each winner to receive. Make an event of it with a golden envelope, red carpet or velvet curtains -- and don't forget to demand acceptance speeches!
This is a fun way to spend a few hours as your main 50th birthday games. Divide the guests into small teams and send them out into town armed with a list of fun, daring (but safe) activities to complete. Make sure that they have a phone camera to capture evidence of successful completion of the activities. Set a clear time for the teams to return to base for a debrief.
Allocate points for the various activities and award an appropriate prize to the winning team. Refreshments and the important birthday cake can be enjoyed while each team shares the details of their scavenge.
