40th Birthday Party Ideas?

Hi all,  I am throwing myself a 40th birthday party- about 50-60 people, including maybe a dozen kids of ages 3-12.  Brunch party at a chef-friend's dining studio (large warehouse industrial type space).  Decorations in a "bohemian luxe" theme- saris of scarlet, gold, purple, pumpkin, lanterns and hurricane vases, exotic music in the background, etc.  I have a friend who will be mixing personalized scents as favors, and probably a mehndi artist as well, but am looking for some more entertainment or decoration ideas.  Although there will be kids there, I don't want stuff that's juvenile- childlike, but not childish.  Think Willy Wonka meets Cirque du Soleil.   Any ideas????  Thanks!!  Bohemiandoc

Re: 40th Birthday Party Ideas?

  • How about (a very PG/kid-friendly) belly dancing lesson? 

    Or a cool (not-old-school) magician?

    If you're at a Chef's studio, can you do a cooking lesson?  Or maybe a lesson on how to make really cool brunch cocktails, a funky Bloddy Mary, alternatives to a traditional Mimosa - and do some sort of tasing.

    For the kids, you can do smoothies or decorating pancakes with berries and nuts?

    Sounds like a great event.  Have fun!
