40th Birthday Ideas

Your 40th is one of those landmark birthday that calls for something extra special. However you choose to celebrate, make sure your 40th birthday party is as fabulous as you are.

Bombay Boudoir Bonanza

So designed the year Elizabeth Hurley married in India and Bollywood-mania took hold in England, the Bombay Boudoir adds a touch of pizzazz with it's mirrored burnt orange and pink linings. If your summoning up images of an Arabian Nights or a Bollywood Bonanza for your 40th, the Bombay Boudoir is perfect for you.

Women are most fascinating between the ages of 35 and 40 after they have won a few races and know how to pace themselves. Since few women ever pass 40, maximum fascination can continue indefinitely. - Christian Dior

Dancing and music plays an important part in any celebration, and you can go vivaciously big and bold on colour and entertainment for your 40th birthday party. Consider dance performers -  Bollywood, or perhaps Bhangra, a Bollywood infusion of a classical and Western form of dance!

Ruby Red Arabian

The Queen celebrated her 40th year on the throne with a ruby jubilee, so incorporate rubies into your own birthday with our predominantly ruby red, bohemian patchwork Arabian tent. Feel as if you have stepped inside a giant mirror ball and be transported to the warmth of the Arabian Desert, as you wine and dine the night away.

Viva La Fortieth!

The most recent addition to our tent collection, and perfect for those spring and summer celebrations, is the Viva La Fiesta. Go to town with Indian parasols in blue and pink, and incorporate a full blown fiesta theme with our tissue paper pom poms. The tent name can even be incorporated into the celebration as a 'Viva La Fortieth!'

The party was absolutely fantastic and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone that attended. Guests felt really relaxed in the Bombay Boudoir interior and commented all night – I especially loved the ceiling lamps!
