Many ways, one of which is to select the area you want to stay in focus then feather the edges as far as you like,add blur in separate layer then adjust opacity.

Don't use blur and a mask or a less then 100% opacity blur: http://photography-on-the.net …php?p=9316054#p​ost9316054

Use lens blur + depth map instead:
