Shortqtpie:  Light birthday cake candles, sing happy birthday, she makes a wish & blows out candles.  What else is there to do?  It’s not her first birthday, it’s her 38th, I don’t think a bounce house or petting zoo is necessary.

I think what you have is enough! My sisters birthday was at midnight on our wedding so we had our DJ announce it and dedicate a fun song to her and we all got on the dancefloor.

Shortqtpie:  Strippers. 

 

Hehe. Just kidding. A cake and saying something about it sounds great to me! ๐Ÿ™‚

My mom’s birthday was on our rehearsal day, too!

I just her a card and said happy birthday!

….Then during the speeches at our reception, I had a small cake brought out to her, and said a few kind words to her in front of everyone, thanked her for sharing her moment with me, and everyone LOVED it!!!  It gave her 3 minutes about her, and it made her feel like the luckiest mom in the world (her words!).  I’d hiiiiighly recommend donating 2-3 minutes of your reception to say something nice to your sister. ๐Ÿ™‚

My sisters (17th) birthday was on my wedding day.  We made an annoucement at our reception and brought out a little cake for her.  Then all the wedding guests joined in and sang happy birthday.  I gave her a DVD of Sixteen Candles, since the main character sort of had the same situation with the birthday being around her sisters wedding day, plus it’s an awsome movie.

First, ASK her before you do anything.

My birthday was the same day as my sister’s rehearsal. She made an announcement, had everyone sing, and served cupcakes. The announcement and singing was a little much for me  (I’m very shy), but I appreciated the gesture. The cupcakes were a nice touch.

Shortqtpie:  helium balloon attached to her chair would be a nice touch. You covered the other aspects but if you are okay it would be nice to have some small decor

Shortqtpie:  That;s  nice . If I may just say – do be careful you don’t come  across  as a tiny bit pitying .I just thought  by your mentioning your relative ages that  maybe  she isn’t married …..and that  you see your state as  superior/more fortunate  . Do please forgive me  if she is a matron of  several years standing  with children of course !

I’m of the camp that a birthday is just another day. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We usually celebrate with dinner, but outside of that we don’t usually go overboard for birthdays in general. I think a cake and card/gift would be totally fine. I’m sure everyone at the dinner will join in and sing happy birthday.
