There are plenty of fun and unforgettable 40th birthday ideas to commemorate this milestone. To add warmth to the celebration, you could invite the guest of honor’s favorite childhood teacher, first boss, or college buddy. A little research can go a long way. In addition to an informal “this is your life” segment, the guest of honor can receive a special gift from his or her special guests. Make sure to include them at a special table, or give them a way to leave early.
For an inexpensive alternative to throwing a big party, you can rent out a screen at your local cinema. You can also host a private viewing of your favorite movie, complete with snacks and popcorn. You can also opt for a photo booth or visit the spa to treat yourself. And if you’re planning a party with close friends, why not make it a volunteer activity? Organize a party to help others and help them celebrate their birthdays, too!
For the ultimate celebration, plan a concert that your guests will remember for years to come. The concert may be a classic or popular band, or a more unusual performance by a local artist. Some artists even offer VIP meet and greet packages. Whatever your choice, you’re sure to create a memorable birthday for your loved one. You can even incorporate a theme of your childhood school years. The party theme should reflect this.
