40 is the new 20! Creative Party Ideas for Your 40 But Flirty Auntie!
Who says forty is old? Forty is the new twenty, and there are a lot of ways you can throw a party for your turning forty-year-old sister, female cousin or your girlfriend that’s either flirty or fun. But just because it’s flirty doesn’t mean it has to be dirty. Here are a few ways you can have a fun, flirty, fortieth birthday party for your Auntie.
Retro is a theme that’s always on top of the list of any party. It’s also going to be a hit for a fortieth birthday celebration, no doubt. Take your Auntie back to the past by throwing a retro-themed party for her. Ask everyone to arrive wearing their favourite retro attire. Make sure there’s a lot of singing and dancing, too. Create a list of songs from the 60’s to the 80’s, and have everyone moving and dancing to their favourite classic tunes. Renting a jukebox and decorating the venue with anything that’s retro – disco balls, strobe lights, records, and colourful cutouts – will surely make the evening a night to remember!
What’s more fun than a comedy night on your birthday party? Book some of the best comedians in town and plan a comedy club-themed party for the celebrant. Some comedy bars let you rent the place for exclusive use. With this option, you won’t have to worry about food and drinks anymore. And since we’re talking about a flirty forty party, make sure you have at least one blue comedian on stage. Just make sure to warn the entertainers not to be too vulgar with their jokes, especially you’re considering to have kids joining the party,
We’re not saying that your Auntie likes to gamble, but ‘Casino‘ would definitely be perfect for an adult-themed party. Pull this off by making sure your guests get into the casino ambiance the moment they step inside the party room. Have a life-size cutout of the birthday girl standing at the entrance, welcoming the guests in her elegant dress. For a casino vibe, play some Vegas-themed tunes, such as Sin City by AC/DC, Blackjack by Ray Charles, and Waking up in Vegas by Katy Perry. Great entertainment will be your key to success with a party theme like this one, so make sure to prepare at least one game table, a karaoke machine for those who want to sing, and a spacious dance floor for those who want to Salsa!
Cosplay & Mascot Fun
Anime actually started to become popular in the 70’s, so a cosplay-themed party, even for a forty-year-old lady, shouldn’t be a bad idea at all. The ladies can dress up as Sailor Moon while the men can come as their favourite Marvel or DC character. If you want it to be more unique, you can consider throwing a mascot-themed party instead. Sesame Street would be a great inspiration for the celebration. Whichever theme you decide to choose, the key is to make the party fun and something that would make the guest of honour feel younger.
