FREE Printable: History Through the Decades

free printable 1950's - 2000 year in review remember
So, my father-in-law was turning the big 6-0. Hitting a milestone like 60, calls for a celebration, a party, a SURPRISE party!!!

My sister-in-laws Leanne and Katy planned out the entire event. Everything was beer themed. From the beer coaster “happy birthday” sign to the beer caps in vases centerpieces. Even a beer cake:

Besides making my famous stromboli (Ok, ok maybe not FAMOUS, but they are delic) I was responsible for creating a “history through the years” display. Basically highlighting significant facts, events, pop culture, history for each decade that my father-in-law, Paul, has been alive.

Leanne and Katy purchased these 8.5×11 frames for a couple bucks at IKEA. I printed out each decade on a piece of 8.5 x 11 photo paper, added them to the frames…and done!

The display looked awesome on the mantle as a decoration for the party and it made for a great conversation piece.

I searched many websites high and low to come up with this comprehensive list of facts for each decade and pictures to go along with each decade. From 1950 – 2000.

  1. Can you create another printable page up to current (2014)? Please let me know. I am throwing my mom a 60th birthday party and would love to use your history pages!! Thank you!

  2. Hi Melissa! Love this idea! I am having a tough time figuring out how to print these. Is there a link to the images? They are great! Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Hi Melissa,

    I would like to print this for my Mom’s sixty Birthday party and I do not know how to print these either. Also, I saw the post for current pages up to 2014 and I was curious if you did that? I would be interested in that as well.

  4. Hi Melissa. Like Megan, I cannot figure out how to print the “History Through the Decades”. Is there a link to the images? Thanks so much!

  5. Hi! My brother is turning 50 and I would love to print this for him – any chance you’ve added 2010?? :) Thanks, Mary

  6. this is so creative. I too would love a current one (2010 on) as well as one from the 1940’s (I have a 75th to plan)
