40th Birthday Party - Some Ideas
by: Margit

The first thing I'd recommend is to go through our Checklist, as the choices you have for the decoration will depend a lot on the venue (at home, restaurant, how big / high are the rooms etc) and the time and money you can invest.

Our Bouquet Elegant is definitely a great eye catcher and can be done in any colour combination you like. As you mentioned light blue and yellow you could try the so called "SuperAgates" - latex balloons in beautiful marbleized colour combinations and combine them with matching plain balloons.

If there will be a "head table" or a cake table you could even highlight them with a Floating Arch.

Another great idea that I've seen lately is to let the helium filled balloons float freely under the ceiling. You can see a picture of how that could look like here.

I hope that helps. Good luck with decorating the suprise party.

I would be delighted to see some photos once you're done. Just come back here and post them!

all the best,
Margit
