Senior birthday toasts

Senior birthday toasts should pay hommage to the wisdom of an elderly person and honor their role in the family and their communities.   An 80th birthday or even a 90th or 100th birthday deserves a great speech.Loving birthday hug for grandmother

Toasts for seniors should also be heartfelt.

Emotion is fine because, at their age, the honorees know that feelings are more important than anything else.

All birthday celebrations should have some humor but be careful that your humor is in good taste and will not offend or hurt the feelings of older guests who may be present.

Below are some senior birthday toasts and sayings that pay tribute to those whose advanced years have given them wisdom and insight. You can also choose foreign expressions reflecting wisdom as part of your toast.
