Life Celebrations | 40th Birthday Bash

There’s one day each year that we all have the same thing happen. You know what it is. You think about it every so often as you reflect on what you’re doing and where you’re going in life. When seasons change and you begin a countdown. The months get shorter and before you know it, it’s your big day. That’s right, it’s your BIRTHDAY! The one day each year that can be all about YOU! Now imagine your birthday this year is going to be one of those milestones… 16, 21, 40, 75… These birthdays call for a special celebration. What are you going to do? A quiet dinner at your favorite neighborhood spot, a party on a yacht, an Alaskan backpacking adventure? Or maybe you’d like something really special but something you can invite people too without making a big fuss. Perhaps a throwback to a certain decade or carefree time in your life. Well that’s exactly what our clients Jill and Matt decided to do.

The dynamic husband and wife duo were both having a big milestone birthday last year. The big 4-0. It used to be that when you turned 40, the standard party theme was “over the hill.” Countless decorations and balloons were made in shades of black and gray; canes, tombstones and ugly graphics of cartoon elderly people were the norm. Modern times call for change and Jill and Matt’s party was so far from this idea that it should set the trend for 40th birthday parties to come. Our team planned the event from start to finish, executing all the details that the couple wanted in their celebration. The celebration started with a delicious, seasonal family style dinner in their backyard. Fresh floral arrangements, top notch catering, wine pairings. Sophisticated yet casual and intimate. And then it was really time to party. It was a birthday party after all! Jill and Matt are such a fun couple so we planned lots of fun festivities. Teams divided up for games of flip cup, shots were poured down an ice luge, a costume box was raided, open air photo booth and a silent disco kept the dance floor full and the party going all night long. And just as planned, there was absolutely nothing “over the hill” about this 40th birthday celebration. Here’s to celebrating four decades of fun! Happy Birthday Jill and Matt!
