The Big 4-0! Fun and Clever Ideas for a Fab 40th Birthday Party


Ready to plan the most epic 40th Birthday Party ever? The Flutter FETTI Team has you covered with these awesome ideas for planning a 40th birthday party!

3, 2, 1…SURPRISE!

Surprise 40th birthday parties are a huge trend. The “typical” plan is for the guest of honor to arrive at the party location and be greeted with Happy Birthday shouts and cheers. Why not kick the party into high gear by showering the birthday girl or boy with confetti frenzy?Our Birthday Confetti launchers and sticks create a magical moment as the guest arrives. Custom FETTI colors make it a breeze to coordinate with your party color theme.

Insider Tip: Keep the candles lit a little longer if you'd like as all of our birthday confetti products are dipped by hand in a flame-retardant bath and are safe and non-toxic! And clean-up is oh-so-easy!

Cooking for a Crowd

Imagine for a moment that the party you’re hosting has run out of food. Yes, it’s time to hit the panic button (several times). Every host worries that they might have too little food and drink for their soiree. Unfortunately, this can turn into overbuying and a fridge full of leftovers. How can we avoid this challenge?

Heather at Chickabug created a food-tastic infographic that details just how much to serve at your next gathering. Whether you’re hosting close family and friends or a small army, this guide is your secret weapon to buying just the right amount of party food.

 Insider Tip: It’s ok to let your family and friends help! Avoid kitchen mishaps (burned appetizers, running out of ice or (gasp…food) with a little help from your friends. It’s close to impossible for one person to do it all and enjoy their party.

Flashback Fun and Games

Do you remember Mad Libs from your childhood? The object is to create a wild and wacky story by using word substitutions. For example, “Now that Julie is 40, her hair may turn a shade of _____ (color).”

Mad Libs are an awesomely interactive ice breaker. One person will be in charge of filling in the sheet as the rest of the players offer word suggestions.Remember, no peeking until the Birthday Libs are completed!Then the birthday girl/boy or party host can read the stories out loud while peals of laughter erupt.

All you need is a stack of Birthday Libs, pencils, and some creative minds! These adorable "Guest Libs" are from the For Moments That Matter Etsy Shop.

Forty Years Ago…

Wow, how times have changed! Flashback cards are a creative way to celebrate the year the guest of honor was born.Have one printed out and framed for a personalized gift or use the answers as part of a Flashback Quiz.Either way, it’s fun to reminisce about the “good old days”.  The WhiteTail Designs Etsy shop creates these wonderful flashback posters:
