Life Begins at 40!

#40th #Birthday {Life Begins at 40! Silly #Party Theme}

Do you ever feel like you’re forgetting something?  I do.  A lot.

In addition to Valentine’s Day, we had company from out of town, and it was my hubby’s b-day.  While he was out running errands, someone said, “Hey, is Steve turning 40 today?”

Oh, my goodness!  Yes!  I totally forgot the milestone. We quickly brainstormed and came up with a clever theme for an important day.  No gloom and doom for us.  Instead of “Over the Hill” — which he is definitely not  — we went with “Life Begins at 40!”

To go with the “life begins”–why not a baby theme?  A bottle of Gatorade got a baby bottle top, some yellow balloons got a makeover, and we were ready to go.  I know.  Silly, but it made for a great and cheerful 40th b-day theme!  I guess I could have wrapped up a package of Depends, but maybe that would have been a little too much!

Have you ever tried to take a picture of balloons outside on a windy day?  Forget about it.  It’s impossible!

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.

  2. I love the theme!!

  3. Stopping by from a linking party because I’m turning 40 next month. EEK! I like the idea that “life begins at 40” much better than being “over the hill!”

    • Happy Birthday, Bonnie! I turn 40 this year, too. We are definitely too young for “Over the Hill” parties, don’t you think? Forty is young!

  4. This is too cute!! So fun! Yikes, it seems like just yesterday I turned 40!! LOL Thank you so much for sharing at A Bouquet of Talent. Have a great weekend. :)
