Find the days horoscope for the birthday celebrant in a newspaper or magazine. Copy it out onto a large piece of cardboard and put it up on the wall. Read it out loud for some fun during the party.

Make your party room look like an old castle or forest from the "middle ages." Do a search on the internet under the word "middle ages" to get some ideas for colors or schemes. With a little paint and paper you could set your rooms up to look like something out of the middle ages.

Hang up photos of the guest of honor from the past and present. Write funny captions under each photo. keep them in the dark (maybe hang them in a spare room or cover them with a cloth) until the party is in full swing and unveil them for some fun party laughs when you feel the time is right.

Fill the party rooms with colorful streamers, confetti or balloons. Attach streamers to the ceiling, draping them out towards the walls and letting the ends hang down to create a gazebo effect.

Sprinkle confetti on the floor or make up a whole bunch of colored little numbered 40's from paper or cardboard and scatter them everywhere.

40th Birthday Party Games

Here are some ageless games you can play.

Take each guest aside during the party. Have a video camera on hand and ask each guest to provide a funny thought or ancedote about the birthday party honoree. Play the tape during the party and give the tape to the celebrant as a gift to take home.

Dig up a few fun facts about the honoree such as a hobby, a favorite food or pet or their middle name. Write them on cards. Make up several strange facts that are not true and write those on cards also. Mix them up and put in a party hat. Draw them and read each one and have guests guess if they are true or false. Keep score and award a gag gift to the winner or winners.

Rent the movie "middle age crazy" starring Ann Margret.

In the middle ages they used to play drinking games. So, a good 40th birthday party idea is to have a wine tasting or make and drink cocktails.

Ask guests to bring a favorite bottle of wine. Tell them they must cover the label up.
