40th birthday party ideas Singapore

With some 40th birthday party ideas, we can help you narrow down your choices for your special celebration. Check out some of our recommendations below:

  • 1980s party
    If you turn 40 in 2022, that means you were born in 1980. A party with a 1980s theme isn't the most original idea, but it makes sense. This is a great time to think back on your childhood. Decorate your favourite bar or club with neon colours, geometric patterns, and posters of the pop stars of the time. Some ideal 40th birthday party decorations for dancing and music lovers are things related to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Tiffany, Bon Jovi, and Whitney Houston.

  • A party on the moon
    Book a rooftop venue and enjoy the magic of the night. This is the best idea if you are comfortable hosting your party during the full moon night closest to your birthday. You can set up tables outside and illuminate the place with subtle lighting. Decorate the tables with white tablecloths, bunches of white flowers, and silvery-green leaves. 

  • Private cooking class
    Who said the best 40th birthday party activities should be all drinks and loud music? Invite your closest friends and family, put on your aprons, and join a private group cooking class. You can choose from different courses, learn new skills and tricks, and make various tasty dishes to try on your special day.

  • Outdoor party
    If your birthday is in the summer, enjoy the nice weather and have a lovely celebration outside. There are a lot of outdoor 40th birthday party venues Singapore has to offer! Decorate the tables with potted plants, set out chilled jugs of sangria, and serve light summer foods for the best experience.

  • Private luxury dinner
    Spoil yourself by booking a luxury restaurant and treating yourself to a full course menu in a grand and cosy setting. Nothing is better than having a luxurious dinner with your closest friends, family, or special loved ones.

  • Slumber party
    Adults can also have sleepovers! Leave the kids with Grandma or Grandpa, book a hotel room, and have a fun night with your best friends. Talk about anything you want, watch movies, play games, enjoy the hotel menu, and so on. If your 40-year-old body can handle it, stay up all night and don't sleep.

  • Coffee workshop
    If you couldn't live without your coffee in the morning and the afternoon, now is an excellent time to learn how this stuff is made. Many adults are looking for new things to do these days, and a coffee workshop will not only teach you a lot but also be extremely fun.

  • Theatre party
    Do you love going to the movies? Some theatre venues let you rent out the space and show the film of your choice to all your friends and family. The best part is that you can eat and drink with all your guests while they are there.
40th birthday party games

Your birthday party should reflect that turning 40 is a milestone for you. Whether you plan a small or a huge party, you should put as much creativity and passion into it as you can. Here are some fun games for your 40th birthday party that you can do to make your event more memorable and engaging.

  • 40 Reasons Why: Set up a chalkboard, scrapbook, or other keepsakes where people can write down 40 things they love about you.
  • Photo Booth: Hire a photo booth or set one up yourself. You only need a camera and props like silly hats, feather boas, and whiteboards to write funny messages on. Let's hope the pictures taken at the party will make you smile for the next 40 years.
  • Guess the Age: Show the people at your party pictures of famous people and ask them to guess if the person is older or younger than 40. Keep score and give a prize to the winner.
  • Board Games: Bring a few of your favourite board games from childhood, and have guests compete in a tournament format.
  • Ideas for a "Bucket List": Have guests write down things for you to do before your next significant milestone (turning 50, 80, etc.). Have them write their ideas on a real bucket for a fun twist.
  • 40 Years of Trivia: Let the guests guess 40 facts about you. Have people try to think what the answer is. The person who gets the most answers right wins a prize.
  • Video Scavenger Hunt: Split your group into teams and record yourselves doing things from a list of things that a 40-year-old shouldn't do, like walking around town in a princess costume or riding a kid's ride at an amusement park. 
Planning a 40th birthday party checklist

Depending on what kind of party you are having, you might need different things. To ensure your party goes smoothly, here are the most important things to consider when planning your event. 

  • Venue
    Every party needs a place to hold it, and the best ones are the 40th birthday party venues Singapore has to offer. Book an ideal private venue so you can enjoy their special day without being bothered. Even if you have 40th birthday party ideas on a budget, you can still make them happen at affordable venues here at Venuerific.

  • Food
    Finger foods are great for parties because you don't need utensils to eat them, and they don't take up a lot of space on the table. Don't forget to order a cake for your 40th birthday!

  • Drinks
    Guests will also need drinks, so ensure there are alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. Serve drinks such as juices, beers, spirits, and wines. Also, ensure you have enough cups and wine glasses so you don't have to run out and buy them at the last minute.

  • Music
    Set the mood and get people to dance by playing the best playlist for 40th birthday parties. You can have a throwback by playing the popular hits during your teenage years or prove that you have the "gen-z taste" in music by including the current top hits in your playlist. It would be best if you also thought about the music preferences of your guests or the theme of your party. 

  • Decoration
    Last but not least is the 40th birthday party decorations. Make sure that the decorations for your party match the theme and will make your guests feel welcome and ready for a whole day of fun.
