Surprise parties are fun to put together and, for the guests at least, they can be a blast. Before the fun moment of shouting – “Surprise!” – goes the tricky and stressful steps in the planning and orchestration of the event. Adding to the drama is when the honored target of the surprise party is someone you live with or see every single day. To make it happen you really have to adopt the stealth of an undercover spy to pull it off.
If it’s a place related to his/her childhood that you have taken your grandpa or grandma to, be sure that you’ll be thanked with tears in their eyes. Old people love things and places related to their childhood. It keeps reminding them about their youth and growing years. So make your grandparent really happy by driving him to his childhood home or locality.
Finally, once the day has arrived, be sure the person who you’re surprising is occupied up until the party. Spruce up your party space with fun decorations and vibrant colors by adding things like streamers, party napkins, blue tablecloths, and more.
Use one or two trustworthy people to help you prepare because preparing a party on your own is a tough job. You need to coordinate the invitations, food, decorations, music, a birthday cake, and (optionally) a theme for the party.
Type one is where everyone has a good time. The function runs smoothly, on time, on budget and the organiser has a fantastic night with everyone telling her what a great time they’ve had.
The time of day will impact how hungry your guests are. A 10am or 3pm function will need less food than a 1pm or 6pm function. A 60th google birthday surprise spinner party at 10 am or 3pm will eat and drink a whole lot less than an engagement party at 12 noon or 7pm.
Sure you have to sing “Happy birthday,” but what if you jazz things up a bit this year by creating a personalized song for your child? Imagine your child’s eyes light up when he hears you singing his name to a familiar tune. If you’re too nervous to perform the song for your child, you can record it and save it on a compact disc. Play it right before you cut the cake! If singing isn’t really your style, sit down and craft a poem about what your child means to you. You can title it, “Happy Birthday, Child of Mine.” You can put the completed poem in a frame and hang it somewhere in your home.
With just a little planning you can have a fantastic surprise party. Keep your birthday guest of honor in the dark with well-planned and executed birthday invitations, RSVPs and plans. It can be done; you just need the right tools.
