If you are turning 70 this year, we thought you’d enjoy the following fun facts! 70 years ago the following stuff happened:
- Bikinis go on sale on July 5th in Paris
- The first Cannes Film Festival takes place in Cannes
- Tupperware sold in department and hardware stores
- Dean Martin’s musical career begins
Here’s a sampling of how much things cost in ’46:

- Average wages per year $2,500.00
- Cost of a gallon of Gas 15 cents
- Average Cost of a new car $1,120.00
- Coffee 85 cents for 2-pound bag

How did we ever live without Tupperware and Dean Martin!?
Just Getting Started!
There was a time not too long ago when turning 70 was met with a sense of trepidation and anxiety. It wasn’t really a much-fêted milestone, largely because, back in the day, 70 meant you were close to death. Put it this way, at 70, no one was starting any long books. Think about it. Look back at pictures of people in their 70’s from the 1960’s –most looked 104!
Fast forward to today and things have changed considerably! Now it seems that Baby Boomers are all living till 107!
Baby Boomers: Changing the Aging Game
The Boomers have changed our attitudes towards age and aging, and the results are evident!
My mother just turned 71 and plays tennis 3 times a week, when she’s not traveling the world! She has more energy than I do, and could beat me at a tennis match on her worst day! This is the new 70!
70 is the New 40
Because 70 is essentially the new 40, it’s fast becoming the new big birthday to celebrate, usurping 40 as the major milestone. And when you think about it, that makes sense!
Celebrate in Style!
By 70 you’ve lived a life! You’ve had a career, raised your kids, survived at least 1 marriage and gained a lot of wisdom and experience along the way! You’ve earned the right to celebrate your big day in style! And, let’s face it, at 40, you’ve barely just begun!
Catering Your Milestone!
We can help you properly mark your 70th birthday with a culinary experience that your friends and family will remember for years to come! Whatever the theme or style you desire, we can help make your dream birthday party a reality.
Catering Dignity and Grace
If you want to go formal for your big day, we can cater a plated event that will wow your guests, and reflect the dignity and grace with which you have aged. We think there is no better time to pull out all the stops than for your 70th! Why wait till 80!
Fun and Flirty
For those of you who want a more informal affair, we recommend buffet-style or grazing stations with a combination of tray-passed hors-d’oeuvres. This creates a more social vibe and encourages mingling!
