Now let's get started by taking a look at my birthday speech samples below...
These birthday speech samples show what I've done for others, directly based on the information they've supplied me.
This is one of those classic 100th birthday speech samples. It has all the ingredients of a heartfelt 100th birthday tribute: a trip down memory lane, recognition of a life well lived, a big show of respect and inspiring words for the future (whatever it holds).
Birthday speech samples like the one below show that even a sister-in-law can deliver a heartfelt birthday speech (with a little tongue-in-cheek to add some fun and whimsy to this tribute).
When it comes to birthday speech samples, it's important to show "range" (how far you can go). In this case, I wrote a birthday speech for a young woman, a daughter who wanted to commemorate her mother's 50th birthday in a cool way. That doesn't mean throwing a bunch of the latest buzz words into the speech. It means capturing how a young person speaks (not what he or she actually says). Take a look for yourself...
This birthday speech sample is different from the others on this page in one very important respect: it's delivered by a platonic friend, not a family member or sweetheart.
This type of speech requires a certain tact. A friend should not try to appropriate what's a big celebration for, in this case, the 80th birthday boy and his family, stealing the scene (so to speak) and ending up as the lead in this major "birthday" production.
A friend's speech should just serve as a complement to the evening. That's exactly what the speech sample below does.
This video of Mark Twain's famous 70th birthday speech (with Val Kilmer as Mark Twain) is one of the best birthday speech samples in the world. Intelligent and witty, it proves that the more personal you get, the better the birthday speech. You can see the video right here.
