Surprise Birthday Party Hacks
Does anyone else like giving surprises more than receiving them. Perhaps its the little bit of “control freak” in me. I really like to know what is going on but really like to surprise people with gifts, events, outings, etc.
What is a Surprise Birthday Party?
A secretly planned party for someone who is not told about it until he or she arrives. Typically when the guess of honor arrives, the crowd yells, Surprise!
Surprise parties are especially great for the person who has it all! The best gift you could give them is to gather all their friends and family together in one room. Everyone is there for them!
Planning a surprise party can be a little bit intimidating. The key word is planning. If you are not a planner, step aside and fine someone who is.
First, you have to do everything you can to make sure the guest of honor does not find out. That can be a challenge, especially with technology today! It’s important to plan ahead. I suggest talking to all guests instead of sending out a mass invite. If you are talking to your guests, you can remind them how important it is that the party is kept a secret.
The day of the party, make sure you line up a chauffeur. Have someone drive them so they can’t bail on the location all together. Can you imagine if they texted you replying “they were too tired to go out tonight!” that would be a disaster. When I had my sweet 16th surprise birthday, I tried to change the restaurant at the last minute. Luckily, my mom (my driver) would not let me change restaurant locations. You could also have the party at home. Everybody makes it home each day, no?
Before the guest of honor arrives, make sure you have parking under control. They will likely recognize cars so use side streets or additional parking lost. You could even bus people back and forth to the party.
Have a way to say “Surprise!” Have huge balloon drop, noise makers, or even face masks with a photo of the guest of honor! Enjoy these Surprise Birthday Party Ideas and hacks. Let us know how it goes!
