Turning 40 is certainly a milestone, but it's one that elicits a wide range of emotions. Still, the occasion needs to be celebrated! If you know someone special who is about to enter their fifth decade, why not take the time to plan an incredible and unforgettable shindig?
It's safe to say most guys are comfortable with turning a year older. Because of this, you may want to infuse the event with fun, humorous jokes. For instance, why not purchase a number of balloons with phrases such as "Over the Hill" or "Old Man" on them? Small details like this are bound to elicit scores of laughs from party attendees.
Women, of course, can be a bit more sensitive about the big 4-0. If this is the case, you'll want to find scores of birthday party favors that highlight her interests but keep her new age secret. Personalized candy wrappers are a fantastic idea, but try to emblazon them with images of the birthday lady as opposed to those terrifying two digits.
