Beer Party Elements for a Fun 40th Birthday

Cheers and Beers 40th Birthday Ideas

Nothing like a special Cheers and Beers invitation (1 – from Purple Trail) to get the word out “secretly” to the party guests. Remember, this is supposed to be a surprise!

Then, send the birthday celebrant off somewhere on party day so you can decorate. Or perhaps arrange to host the gathering in a family member’s or friend’s house to keep it really hush-hush. At the venue, have a custom-ordered beer mug cake waiting with a “Cheers and Beers to 40 years” cake topper (2 – via Amazon)—perfect to trim a table centerpiece, too!

Then, set up a food and snacks bar with a rustic-style chalkboard sign (3 – from Little Big Company) along with a beer-tasting station (4 – from Krafty Kate Kreations) where guests bring their favorite brew to display in ice tubs for everyone to sample. A sure hit, too, would be a chips and beer corner (5 – via Pinterest) for everyone to pick their pairings. All these would call for party essentials, like themed beverage napkins (6 – via Amazon), paper plates, serve ware, and of course beer mugs!

And in keeping with the theme, too, prepare a game like Drink-a-Palooza (7 – via Amazon) that boasts of combining “old school” and “new school” drinking games into one. Just be sure to have designated drivers to give everyone a safe ride home!
