40th Birthday Ideas
Know someone turning the big 4-0? It used to be that 40 was considered "over the hill." However, many people would argue that 40 is the new 30. Forty-year-olds are more fit and fabulous than ever. That said, you might be interested in planning something beyond a family dinner or cookout at home. Here are some 40th birthday ideas to consider for hosting a "40 and Fabulous" birthday party!
- Plan a Night Out: Find an amazing venue—whether it's a trendy restaurant or swanky hotel—and invite a group to a fancy dinner party. Encourage guests to get dressed up, maybe get a limo for the night, and have a swanky night out with great company.
- Plan a Party: There is no shortage of 40th birthday party ideas. Sticking with the "40 and Fabulous" theme, make the party a cocktail party. Create a signature cocktail to offer guests, serve hors d'oevres, and have a dessert bar with chocolate covered strawberries, gourmet chocolates, and cordials.
- Plan a Spa Day: Nothing is more fabulous than a day at the spa. If parties aren't your thing, a spa day with close friends tops the list of 40th birthday ideas for women. Choose a package that includes a few services, take advantage of the spas amenities, like the hot tub, sauna, etc., then head to lunch or dinner afterwards completely refreshed.
- Plan a Golf Day: A golf weekend is one of the top 40th birthday ideas for men. Escape work, chores, and more with a birthday weekend trip to a golf hot spot with the guys. Get in a few rounds of golf, have birthday drinks at the clubhouse, and return from the weekend fully relaxed.
