Ideas for a Woman's 40th Birthday Party

A great party starts with fabulous plans.

A milestone such as this should be given extra creativity in planning so that the result is fun and festive.

Simply stated, no ordinary party will do!  So, what kind of party should you throw for the woman?

Consider a theme-based costume party.

-First of all, this allows the birthday girl to take her mind off the fact that she is no longer a spring chicken; instead, she will be distracted by all the details involved with planning her bash.

-Secondly, everyone loves to dress up.

Consider an all-woman party.

-This allows the girls to be girls.

-No men allowed! Who needs "Them."

 -Don't just assemble friends and relatives. Invite lady neighbors! They'll be thrilled to be a part of the celebration.

Now there are several ideas that come to mind for a theme party.

How about a 1940's theme?

Think outside the box. It doesn't have to be about Joan Crawford and her shoulder-padded dresses, or other inspirational styles from Turner Classic Movies. How about WWII? Have your party ladies consider sporting a costume as a Wac (Womens Air Corp) or a Wave (Womens Navy). There are lots of creative ideas for that era.

Consider a Ladies Afternoon Tea Party

These days there are many businesses that are thriving as hosts for tea parties.

With so many options for exotic and organic teas available, a boring cup of tea is a thing of the past.

Have the ladies come dressed in old antique hats and gloves. Make it fun.

Make it personal and request each lady bring in something of importance to them and share it with the group.

How about a Laughter Yoga Party?

Laughter Yoga is the latest craze in mind-body therapies for stress relief as well as many other cardio- vascular benefits.

It isn't about jokes, but a great way to expand lung power, but because even faked laughter is contagious, everyone joins in.

You can hire a certified Laughter Yoga leader to attend your party and lead your group into the sillies, bringing joy to everyone.

The ideas for a Woman's 40th Birthday Party are endless. But the main ingredient should be fun.
