40th birthday: 7 ideas to celebrate

40 years old, that's worth celebrating! We celebrate both the end of our thirties and the entry into a new decade. The 40th birthday is symbolic! Here are our 7 favorite ideas to inspire you to organize a 40th birthday party that is out of the ordinary.

A distinguished birthday party with the services of an in-home chef

If you're thinking of throwing a fancy party at home, the services of a home chef are a must!

The cocktail reception offered by our partner will make a good impression!

At a cocktail reception, guests are not seated at a table. They mostly stand while the gastronomic team serves them a variety of appetizers. This assortment of sweet and salty, as well as hot and cold, delights make up an 8-course menu. This is a complete meal, not just a pre-dinner happy hour.

The in-home chef package includes:

  • Plates
  • Verrines
  • Trays
  • Utensils
  • Napkins (disposable)

Not only is it simple, it's a great way to discover all kinds of canapés and add a touch of glam to your evening!

40th anniversary and strong emotions

The birthday boy or girl likes excitement? Why not bet on a good adrenaline rush for his 40th birthday? Gather his family and friends for a day of memorable adventures!

Here are some ideas of activities to do in Quebec.

  • Skydiving: available in Farnham, Saint-Esprit, Alma, and Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes

Activities for her 40th birthday

We are used to traditional birthday dinners with a few balloons and a cake. For his 40th birthday, organize an original birthday party by opting for an activity (at home or elsewhere).

Here are 7 interesting ideas:

  • A pottery class
  • A pole dancing class with friends - laughter guaranteed
  • Learn to play poker with your buddies
  • Learn how to make your own candles or lip balms
  • A cooking or pastry class
  • A mixology workshop

A moment of relaxation for his 40th birthday

The jubilarian is running out of time and seems exhausted lately? It's true that between the kids and work, it's hard to rest. For his 40th birthday, offer him a party with a relaxing theme.

The birthday party could be held in a zen cabin in nature. You could also enjoy a spa experience and a massage. The advantage is that you too can get your energy back.

You should know that there are also aesthetic and massage therapy services at home!

Celebrate a 40th anniversary on a trip

Celebrate her 40th birthday in style with a big or small trip!

Why not be a tourist in your own province and explore a new region of Quebec? You can rent a cottage and book some activities.

You want to give her the whole package and you have a bigger budget? A health and wellness retreat south of Tulum in Mexico seems like the perfect alternative.

A costume party for its 40th anniversary

40 is the age of maturity... but that doesn't mean you can't have fun!

Choose a theme and invite family and friends to dress up for a costume party. These kinds of parties are just as much fun at 10 as they are at 40!

Here are some ideas for themes to adopt:

  • Characters from TV series
  • Chic outfit
  • Superheroes
  • Vintage (we advise you to choose a particular decade)
  • Horror

To motivate your guests, tell them that whoever wins the best costume of the evening will receive a Crafty Cocktails recipe kit!

Remember to film their arrival to keep a nice souvenir of this evening!

A karaoke night

A karaoke party is a timeless classic, and with good reason. It's a great way to liven up any party. Plus, the performances are always quite comical!

If you are organizing a very large 40th birthday party, it may be worthwhile to deal with a professional karaoke and animation service such as those provided by our DJ karaoke supplier. Games and challenges, adapted sound, lighting and dance floor as well as 2 wireless microphones will make your event a real success!
