Forty Things To Do Before Forty- Throw A Party

On my forty things to do before I'm forty list I had to add Throw A Party! Most of us, the last time we had a big party it was our wedding day! We invited friends and family to celebrate with us. Well, I feel at forty, this is the perfect time to do that again!

I decided on a Tapas restaurant near by and suddenly I had a theme! Fabulous Fortieth Flamenco Party!!!
I had the most fabulous invitations made up by Papercourt press, a fabulous bloggy friend who does the cutest invitations!!!

The night came and friends and family were there. Some even flew in from across the country!

Husband did the most amazing video with pictures and video clips all to my favorite songs. It was the best gift I could have received. It was so much fun seeing high school friends, next to college friends, next to my Mom friends!

Throwing a party was on my list because I feel when you turn forty you need to start over. Gear up for new goals, new directions and new adventures! Even if you can't afford a big blow out, have a celebration. Honor where you have been and what you have accomplished. Then set the bar again, this time even higher.

Cheers to Forty!
