40th birthday – celebrate and have some fun!

By: Monica Foth

It used to be that when a person had their 40th birthday it was considered middle age. Nowadays, for most people the 40th birthday is typically when life begins. It is a time when we feel our best, are all the wiser and have a zest for life.

Regardless of what people believe, a 40th birthday is still a milestone and considered a day that celebration is in order. Many people love a theme party where they dress up in clothing of that era. Some ideas might be a Mexican, a sixties theme or a Luau party. The decorating and food add to the fun and excitement of doing a party that is different.

Gifts for a 40th birthday can be serious or along the lines of a gag gift. For something serious you could run an ad in the local paper congratulating the birthday person or rent them a luxury automobile for the day. Gag gifts such as planting forty plastic pink flamingos or black crows in the front yard are always fun and can really get the party going. You can get personalized banners and invitations printed up to add to the décor. Any way you look at it turning forty can be as fun as you make it.
