40th Birthday Party Ideas - An Open Letter to Cameron Diaz

Dear Cameron Diaz

It was recently brought to my attention in a tabloid magazine that this year you are turning 40 . At first I was shocked that a magazine would reveal the true age of a female celebrity (a lady never reveals her age or weight) and to this day I am pretty sure no one really knows how old the likes of Cher and Joan Rivers actually are. Yes, this story was about you allegedly tweaking and touching up your already beautiful looks to fend off the ravages of time and loves lost as you approach the 4-0. You are not alone though as further research has revealed a bevy of celebrities getting set for their 40th birthday. Hollywood is going to be pretty busy in planning and preparing for these celebrities. Other female stars turning 40 this year: Jennifer Garner (April 17th), Selma Blair (June 23rd), Sofia Vergara (July 10th) – have to admit if I was turning 40 this year and I had Sofia to contend with, I’d be heading in for a nip/tuck too! The Queen of Domesticity Gwyneth Paltrow (September 27th). Our own Aussie star, Toni Collette (November 1st). I would also like to point out the following male actors turn 40 this year: Dwayne Johnson (May 2nd), Ben Affleck (August 15th), Josh Duhamel (November 14th) and Jude Law winds it all up on December 29th. If any of these men happen to read this I would like them to know that I am totally available! My husband is 36, so I have no problem with an older man. Dwayne, I’m talking to you! My husband is reading this over my shoulder and shaking his head and laughing at me.

If I was a stellar celebrity turning 40 in the company of those listed above, I would look at my achievements – my goodness you dated Justin Timberlake! You have a knock out body that most of us could only dream of and you have broken your nose twice and still look pretty (my two year old broke my nose a few weeks ago, pretty I was not!) and instead of lining the pockets of a plastic surgeon, of which he is already rolling in it thanks to all the Real Housewives, put it to a super fantastic birthday bash. You’ve come this far and look this good, let it all out and celebrate. I am sure if you don’t want to party in a public venue, one of your many friends could host it in the grounds of their Hollywood Hills mansion. I think you would love a party on a stretch of beach where you and your friends can surf, paddle board, stroll around in bathing suits (or lack of suits) and just relax. I would like to then take this opportunity to introduce you to this fantastic place, they happen to be Australia’s #1 Party Shop, Pink Frosting. Whether it is a beach party or a house party, Pink Frosting have everything you need to party away the past 40 years and welcome the next 40.

Australia’s #1 Party Shop has all the themes, styles and products – your choice will be a tough one! Stick to a white background and pick one feature colour. So for example, white table cloths, plates, cups and decorate with hot pink balloons, streamers, pom poms, napkins, vases of pink flowers. For the birthday boy, go for blues/greens/oranges. Set up some oval plastic drink tubs with ice and soft and mixer drinks. Next to the drink tubs, have glasses filled up with a choice of retro fruit straws, cocktail parasol straws and drink charms to add some fun and retro quirkiness to it. Secure balloons to the “40th” balloon weights. I love the cheekiness of the “Aged to Perfection” cupcake decorating kits that Pink Frosting has. You can personalise you party banners and bunting too! Scatterfetti (glitter confetti scatters) all over the tables will add sparkle to the centrepieces. Get your hands on the Martha Stewart “Happy Birthday” deep edger punch and some bright coloured cards and make your own Happy Birthday place cards, invitations and tags to attach to the party favours. Have the DJ play the classic tracks from the year of birth – for this year, 1972 some chart toppers were American Pie - Don McLean, Popcorn - Hot Butter, Rockin’ Robin - Michael Jackson, Bang a Gong (Get It On) T-Rex – I am a HUGE fan of T-Rex.

If you have an event organiser, or for us mere mortals wanting to put together an incredible 40th birthday party head over to Pink Frosting and they will help you to select the celeb-worthy supplies from the invitations right through to the party favours. Who knows, you may walk in to your party and be amazed at how great it all looks, you will have your peeps tipping off the paps to come and take photos – oh Pink Frosting also has a range of photo booth backdrops just for this!
