Shark Tank's Barbara Corcoran is laughing in the face of death!

Over the weekend, the businesswoman and TV personality decided to make her 70th birthday extra special by hosting her very own funeral -- sort of. She posted a series of photos of herself at her party, which began with her lying in a coffin as attendees arrived.

"Surprise 70th!! I surprised my guests laid out in a coffin on Saturday," she captioned the fun images. "After 90 friends and family paid their respects, I popped out of the coffin in a red Carolina Herrera gown to the Diana Ross song 'I'm Alive!', and danced the Tango. What the heck, you only die once, you might as well be around for it!"

In the images, she's shown lying ever-so-still as her guests posed alongside her for photos. The presentation also included two flower arrangements on either side and a cardboard cutout nun. There was even a podium set up for guests to offer words honoring her.

She's also shown climbing out of her coffin and greeting everyone, including pals like Mark Cuban. Later, she was photographed dancing with friends at the glassed-in rooftop location and blowing out the candles on her cake, which was fittingly decorated to look like a shark with a Barbie doll in its teeth.

Clearly, the birthday girl and her pals have a wicked sense of humor when it comes to the sands of time!

Check out images from the get-together up above.
