{BN Black Book of Parties} Fabulous 40th Birthday Party – Adult Birthday Party Ideas

We are always looking for adult birthday party ideas and I am IN LOVE with this fabulous party that Dawn at Ruby May Designs created to celebrate her 40th birthday! It is the perfect combination of fun and sophisticated with a pink, black and gold color palette.

The gold sequin fabric is a gorgeous backdrop for the large black sign, which I think just screams “this is going to be a fun night!” And it should be! Turning 40 is definitely a reason to celebrate! Dawn created the equally fabulous tissue tassel garland draped across the front of the table.

The dessert table was filled with plenty of beautiful, delicious desserts including a simple white cake adorned with gold sequins and a fun pink topper, a beautiful pink ruffled cake, pink & gold macarons, mini heart cookies, and chocolate tarts.

A pretty white hutch was used to display additional treats and “Midnight Snacks”.

And of course, the champagne bar. Fun spray-painted letters were used to identify a very important area of the party.

A simple ribbon backdrop was used in the photobooth area for guests to have some fun with!

Here’s the gorgeous birthday girl getting ready to blow out her candles!

I may or may not be turning 40 next year and would absolutely LOVE a party like this for my celebration. I’ll have to work on that, I guess ūüėČ

Dawn, thank you so much for letting us share your fabulous birthday party with our readers – truly an inspiration!

    HEAVEN LOVE the whole thing. Love the color combo. Love the thoughtful details. Love the mini bottles of champagne with ribbon and paper straws! Thanks for sharing.

    Wow what a chirpy shimmering vivid birthday party. I love the idea of ‘Eat me’ cake and mini heart cookies. Hot pink ruffled cake is looking so yummy. I’d say Dawn has done a tremendous job.

    Is their a printable for the “time to drink champagne and dance on the table” sign? Or a vendor to order it? Love it and want it for a party!!

    • Dawn says

      Hi Charlotte, if you google the sign you will find a few suppliers in the states, it just comes as a small poster, and I brought it to a printer to get enlarged.
      Hope that helps.
