My husband is turning 40 next week! He is not taking it so well, so I decided to give him a surprise 40th birthday party this weekend to rub it in a little. I am not 40 yet, so I can do that. For now. Anyway, did you know that you can get all of your Milestone Birthday Party Supplies from Oriental Trading?! They offer a wide array of Over the Hill party supplies, 30th birthday party supplies, 40th birthday party supplies and 50th birthday party supplies. You can gear up for some party fun with milestone dated cups, banners, birthday yard signs, tablecloths, invitations and much more. Banners can even be personalized with the name of the birthday person.
Make birthday party desserts and appetizers extra special with food picks stamped with 30th birthday, 40th or 50th. These colorful food picks are the ideal way to ramp up the birthday party decorations and festivities. I used the Look Who’s 40 Food Picks to decorate even the food for the party! I think they are super cute.
Drinks were served in style. We used the Striped Paper Straws that are so on trend. They come in a variety of colors and offer a fun way to make your drinks match your party colors. We also used the Black Velvet Cups. These large plastic 16 oz. cups are a perfect way to extend the color and style of your event to each of your guests' place settings. They were very sturdy and perfect for serving drinks.
We combined the Black Jumbo Streamers and the Birthday Pattern “40” Streamers for a fun and festive look. The crepe paper streamers are bleed, fade and flame-resistant. You can mix and match rolls in different colors to coordinate for holidays, parties or celebrations. We used them to create a curtain in the doorways. Then we took the Birthday Pattern “40” Streamers and put them along the edge of the pool. The plastic streamers made turning the big four-oh more festive.
For food, I selected the Black Square Dinner Plates, Black Square Dessert Plates, and the Black Luncheon Napkins. The plates can be a colorful addition to birthdays, wedding receptions, showers, graduations and other events. Serve lunch, finger food or snacks on the paper plates. I was impressed with the quality of the plates. No flimsy materials here! They held a full meal with no problem. They come in many colors. Choose a color that best goes along with your decorations. The 12 7/8" paper luncheon napkins are perfect for any party and also come in many colors.
I invited everyone with the Look Who's 40! Invitations. The fill-in cards are perfect for birthday parties and a great choice for those who want a lighthearted theme! The inside says, "Come on out and help us count the wrinkles!" They are very cute. Finally, I wanted to add extra embarrassment by ordering my husband a Personalized Team Grey T-Shirt. I personalized it by adding his nickname and then 40. He loved it and so did our friends and family. Need personalized t-shirts for your event? Order one, two, three or more t-shirts personalized with your own unique message, name or date! It was very high quality and was larger than I expected it to be. Don't be afraid to order your normal size. Oriental Trading made planning this 40th Birthday Party for my husband so easy!
