Your spouse’s 40th birthday is a big deal. It’s a landmark birthday and should be celebrated accordingly. Make sure you strive for something special for arguably the most special person in your life. Try getting creative and recruiting some outside help to ensure that it all goes smoothly. If you and your spouse have been together for many years, you might feel like you’re fresh out of good ideas. Here are a few unforgettable ways to celebrate your spouse’s 40th birthday.
You don’t have to go far in order to create a birthday party that’s unforgettable. Throw a swanky, upscale cocktail party with your closest friends and work colleagues. Have everyone dress up, and hire your spouse’s favorite restaurant to cater the event. If you have enough room in your home, you can hire local musicians to play in the background. Everyone at work will be talking about how sophisticated the evening was. Make sure your bar is stocked with your spouse’s alcohol of preference, and have a bartender keep the libations flowing.
What about the kids?
If all of your friends and family are at your house soiree, what are you going to do about the kids? There’s a very easy solution. Have all the guests bring their kids over, and organize their own special evening in the basement or backyard. Hire professional birthday party clowns from a trusted entertainment rental company, like Clowns 4 Kids. Their entertaining clown show includes lots of activities to engage your children and keep the fun going while you enjoy your evening. If you’re worried about children being frightened by the clowns, you can request clowns wearing very minimal makeup. In addition to clowns, you can also request a “costume character” for free! Your kids can interact, take photos, and dance with some of their favorite characters. You’ll be able to enjoy the birthday celebration, and your kids will be begging to stay up with their friends.
Hey, Big Spender
Make your spouse feel like a high roller by setting aside some money and going to a destination casino. Your partner will feel like a 20-year-old again while rolling dice at the craps table. Relax, and enjoy the food and entertainment offered by big casinos. Depending on which casino you go to, you should consider checking out the surrounding areas through site for shore eyes. Make some loose plans and go with the flow, then see where the adventure takes you. You might even come home a little richer than you left.
The Great White Way
If your spouse is more reserved or would enjoy doing something as just the two of you, consider taking a trip to New York City and seeing a show on Broadway. Your spouse will love seeing the newest hit before it ever goes out on tour—those are some serious bragging rights. Make a whole evening out of it by going to a nice dinner somewhere close to Times Square, and cap the evening at an upscale cocktail bar that serves desserts. Your partner will love the gift of theater.
A New Best Friend
Has your spouse always wanted a puppy, or do they desperately miss their little black cat from childhood? A great surprise for their 40th birthday is to give them a companion that will stay by their side for the next two decades. You can either secretly adopt a pet as a surprise or make a birthday event out of picking their new pet. Don’t forget that adoption is a loving option. Check out places like The Anti-Cruelty Society and Treehouse Humane Society to find their new best friend.
