{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 😉

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