  • 40th Birthday Party Ideas

    Hi All,

    Having a surprise party for hubby's 40th birthday in September. Just really need ideas - I want to have loot bags for everyone to take home at the end of the night but not sure what to put in them - not too expensive either.

    Also, I want something unusual, for the tables and any ideas at all really. I've started to buy the decorations already and hiding them away, but all family members will be invited so there will be kids and old people there too.

    Anyone able to help?

    Cheers,

    Dx

    I've got two 40th parties to go to already. Themes are:

    *the 70's
    *Spice Girls and Village people.

    The 70s one is next Saturday so can look then for inspiration.

    My hubbie is 40 in June and I want to do a party for him but trying to find a venue in prime wedding time is a nightmare :0(

    Not exactly answered your question have I? Sorry I'll keep thinking.
    What's he into?

        Our garage is now our extension. Garage itself is tiny store room for bikes and not a lot else now. Wouldn't be a very big party in there!!

        Our garden is titchy too or would have looked into marquees. My sis has been hinting to mum that maybe we could use her garden instead. She didn't seem too keen. I don't know why?? lol

          Hi Guys,

          He's into motor racing and stuff and the 80's was obviously our era but he wasn't into music that much and I don't want to make it a fancy dress. We have the normal disco, buffet, etc in a function room in a local pub - which is free to hire.

          My sister did say that we should get sweets from then (if we can) such as black jacks, various boiled sweets and that and put them in bowls on the tables then people can put them in the loot bags with their cake.

                I'm 50 in May and struggling to believe it myself!! the funny thing about the big birthdays is that on the one hand you want to celebrate and have a huge party and on the other you'd just like the thing to quietly pass you by. I'm still in a dilemma but I do know that I want my good friends and family to get together with me. i suspect food and alcohol will play its part and people will make their own fun.
                So not much of an answer but I'm sure your hubby will enjoy the company and the surprise and it sounds like you've done quite a bit already and thats what counts.........
                rambling so will stop.
