Walk Down Memory Lane with a Milestone Birthday Slideshow

What do you give a person celebrating their 60th, 70th or 80th Birthday? A birthday slideshow video.

Birthdays are really special because it marks our growth and journey through life and we get to share this special time with family. It is really hard to buy anything for someone who has everything.

My mum celebrated her 80th a couple of years ago and we had a small family celebration.

I have also been gathering old photographs and some new video clips to put together an 80th Birthday Slideshow Montage Video with music.

This is a present that you can give someone special and it will ignite joy to see their memories!

Give your Birthday Slideshow Montage Video the WOW Factor!

You do not need to include all your photos, you just need to choose the right ones and make them stand out. Your song choice is very important to set the mood to your show and if you include special effects synchronized to music, your photos will come alive, to tell of an extrordinary story of life.

Choosing photos that mark changes in life in the following ways is a great start.

1. Achievements in Childhood and Growing years;

2. A life changing Adventure or Holiday trip;

3. Wedding Celebrations within the family;

4. Birth of Children;

5. Any other Celebrations within family and friends.

I am sure you know that these special moments always creat joy and that is your aim in creating these special slideshows.

You can include some sad moments but always remember the aim is the bring out the joyful moments from that sad period.

We all have different stories in our life but often forget about them.

A Birthday Slideshow Video Montage is a great way to celebrate life.

Choosing Songs to Fit your Birthday Slideshow

These are some songs that I have used as a Birthday Presentation

  • Times of your Life – Paul Anka;
  • Because you Love Me – Celine Dion;
  • We are Family – Sister Sledge;
  • Happy Birthday – Stevie Wonder;

Using Quotes

One of my favourite quotes is by Maya Angelou.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Look for that special quote to touch that someone special.

The result of all your efforts is an amazing Video Montage to share that joy with your family and a wonderful keepsake treasured video.
