Adult Parties: 40th

40th Birthday Party

Although I love doing kid's parties, I had just as much fun with this 40th birthday party. My friend wanted to do a gold and black themed 40th for her husband in their backyard (which was gorgeous) so I got to decorate inside and out. We started with a sign on the front door to greet the guests as they arrived.

Inside we hung a custom banner I made for the party in gold, black and cream with her husband's name and then with the extra pieces of card stock I created another banner.


I rented tall round cocktail tables and covered them with cream tablecloths and tied them at the bottom with a black and gold sash. They looked stunning next to the pool. On each table I placed a custom centerpiece made from square glass vases filled with gold beads and artificial cream roses. I placed a glow stick inside each vase for when it got dark.

Centerpieces and cushions

They also had a couch on the patio so I made a couple gold/black cushions to add a little something. 

I also made a photo booth background out on a piece of plywood covered in back fabric. I added a string of clear lights and a banner to hang across and placed some props on a nearby table. This was a hit!

For the favors, I got some gold Hershey kisses and placed a small sticker on the bottom of each "kiss". Some stickers had an "S" for Scott and some said 40. I then places a handful of "kisses" in a clear favor box and added a cute thank you tag. The guests loved these!


The party went great and my friend was very happy!
