DIY Birthday – for the BIG kids

And by big kids, I mean the ADULTS!

I’m planning a 40th birthday party and I’ve been looking for fun DIY birthday decorations and party themes that don’t involve “over the hill” or black balloons.  Thankfully, I’ve found a LOT of inspiration out there!

From Sweet Scarlet, a Paris Theme Birthday.  You can get the very inexpensive party printables in Sweet Scarlet’s etsy shop.

More party inspiration and ideas, from Kara’s Party Ideas, a gorgeous houndstooth inspired 40th Birthday Party theme:

We have a Tiffany Favors category in our Diva Entertains shop too!

   

Now, I can’t decide if I want a sophisticated glam theme… or a more FIESTA party theme.  For the latter, I’ve bookmarked this fabulous Fiesta 40th Birthday post on the Hostess Blog:

And I found this paper flower bouquet tutorial for Flirty Fiesta Flowers, from Aesthetic Nest:

Now… just in case I decide to go ALL OUT GLAM for this party I’m planning, I’ve marked this Zebra birthday cake as inspiration:

AND… this Bold Zebra + Tiffany Blue inspired party post. Isn’t this a gorgeous Zebra fondant cake.  Want to have this cake (or a very similar one) for your party?  Print out this picture and take it to your bakery and ask them to recreate! (I do this all the time):


I’m ready to PARTY, aren’t you?
