How to Organise a Surprise Birthday Party

Organising a surprise party for someone is great fun although it can be a bit stressful too. There’s a lot of careful planning that goes into organising a birthday party at the best of times, so when you have to keep it as well, it can prove quite difficult after all if the person finds out about it – it’s no longer a surprise. With this said, all the effort that goes into making the event a complete success is well worth it just to see the look on the person’s face when they realise what is happening and how it was all done without them knowing anything about it!

Making the Person Feel Extra Special

It goes without saying the person whose birthday it is will be well pleased by the fact a party has been organised for them because it shows just how much people like and care for them. It can make the person feel pretty amazing even if they are a little surprised and that’s what it’s all about.

Decide on the Sort of Party

The first thing you have to decide on is the type of party your friend would really appreciate. You can go a bit wild and if you are thinking “big” then make sure you have a few friends to help with the planning or you might find you’ve bitten off more than you can chew. The key to organising a great surprise party for someone is to make sure you and everyone who helps you, enjoys doing all the work beforehand because it guarantees a great time will be had by all on the day.

The All-important Timing

For a party to be a complete surprise, it’s far better to plan to have it just after the big day itself. If the party is on the same day as your friend’s birthday, all the planning might just arouse their suspicion that something is going on! You also need to make sure that all the key people you want to invite to the “do” will be able to make it – there’s nothing worse than a few key players not being there to enjoy the festivities. This means letting everyone know earlier rather than later when it’s going to be held.
