40th Birthday Planning For The Mr

I actually can’t believe I am thinking about my husband Turning 40 this year!

Sadly in our own heads we are still spring  chickens and more often than not act like we are still twenty one; but the reality is he has made his way up to the top of the hill and this needs celebrating.

At the moment I have a nice blank note book all ready to be filled with guest lists, themes, venues and dates but to be honest I’m finding this harder than planning for than my wedding day.

Most of us ladies have had ideas and aspirations for our wedding day since we were little so I remember being able to scribble down pages upon pages of ideas that I knew would make my day as special as I had always imagined.

When it comes to my husband’s birthday however I have all the pressure to make this into a day to remember as well as the expectation that I should know exactly want he wants for his day…even when in reality I have no idea!

Our nights out have changed dramatically since we were first together and wehave traded bozzy nights out for tea and chocolate in front of the TV, but then the odd night out we do get to let our hair down it is always such a welcome change.

The only parties that I have hosted over the past few years have mainly consisted of pass the parcel, superheroes and stodgy party food so I think if I want this to be a success I will have to pass the baton onto the professionals and get a some advice from events management companies.

They will be able to help me source that perfect venue that I may never have considered before, get menus together that will be something to remember rather than a sea of beige offering of bread, sausage rolls and sandwiches that are never massively appealing but are always an easy option of it is down to you to organise.

Those welcome drinks will be down to someone else to prepare and hand out while we can both sit down and enjoy and most importantly no cleaning up! 

How have you all celebrated your 40th birthdays?
