Fabulous 40th Birthday Party Ideas

They say that life begins at 40, and we at Rhinestone Sash absolutely couldn’t agree more. Forty is FABULOUS! You finally know yourself, support yourself, and are all around fierce. We’ve come up with a list of 10 party themes that are totally worthy of the phenomenal, fun, and fabulous milestone birthday that you have coming up!

1. Dinner Cruise.

Dinner cruises are fun, romantic, and will surely make for a very special fortieth. Whether you invite a few couples to make reservations alongside you or you go all out and rent an entire boat in order to include all of your friends and family on your special evening, it’s sure to be a memory to be cherished for years!

2. Keg Party.

Relive your college days with a backyard keg party! Have all your friends dress up in their best nineties attire and pretend that you’re back in your old stomping grounds for a night! Don’t forget to blast lots of Spice Girls and put out the beer pong!

3. Private Dinner and Show.

Rent out a local theater and show a movie that came out the year you were born. We recommend Rocky, Star Wars, or Saturday Night Fever! Serve drinks with a buffet afterward for a more fun and festive twist on the usual movie and dinner.

4. Tequila Mockingbird”.

Invite all of your friends to a boozy literature-themed party for an extra special evening! Ask your party guests to dress up as their favorite book or book character- but with a boozy twist! Costumes could include Fahrenheit 151, The Adventures of Huckleberry Gin, Wide Smirnoff Sea, The Call of the Wine, etc.

5. Pub Crawl.

Rent a party bus and plot a path that hits several different local bars and pubs for a fortieth that is guaranteed to be a total blast! The party will last all night long- or at least until last call!

6. Camping.

Grab a big group of your best friends and head for the great outdoors! Taking a weekend to unplug from technology and just relax and celebrate with all of your best pals would be a fun and fairly low-cost way to celebrate your 40th.

7. Casino Party.

If you love the idea of a Vegas birthday but can’t get away for an entire weekend spent on the Strip, a Casino party would be perfect for you! Invite your friends over for an evening of delicious cocktails and fun gambling.

8. 70’s Party.

Throw it back to the decade you were born with a fun 70’s-themed birthday party! Dress up in your best disco attire and get your Saturday Night Fever on! Cue up the ABBA and get ready to groove the night away.

9. Amazing Race Party.

Invite a group of your most adventurous couple friends and embark on a birthday that’s nothing short of amazing! Compete with one another in a series of challenges inspired by the TV show- even give out prizes to the winning group. This party’s sure to be a success.

10. Weekend Away.

Leave the kids at home and jet off somewhere tropical with your hubby! You deserve it. Taking a weekend trip to relax and rekindle your flame will be a fun and exciting birthday memory that you hold close for years!
