If your extroverted friend or partner loves your and other people’s attention, know that you need to do something extra when his birthday arrives. Planning a surprise birthday party for loved ones is a great idea to not only make them feel special but to show them how much you love and care for them.
Birthdays are special and a chance to surprise all the important people in your life. And when a loved one loves surprises so much, nothing serves better than pulling off this idea.
Throwing a surprise birthday party can be fun. However, the whole event requires a lot of planning and perfect execution of ideas. From the venue to the guest list to food and everything else – there is so much to look after.
Here are some easy tips and instructions to follow to plan the best surprise party for a special one.
Opt for a theme
Start by selecting a theme based on the interest or hobby of the birthday boy/birthday girl. Consider all the things that they love from the bottom of their heart. It could be a movie character, a superhero, a fictional character, or anything else.
As you start planning a theme party for your loved one, make sure that all the activities, food, and decoration will revolve around the said theme.
Choose the venue
The kind of location that you want to choose for the surprise birthday party depends upon two things – your budget and the number of guests. If there are many people on the guest list, select a bigger venue such as a hotel, restaurant, or even a park.
On the other hand, if your surprise party is a low-key affair with only the close-knit circle of the guest of honor, you can plan the surprise in your home or backyard.
Add lots of entertainment
What fun is a surprise birthday party when there is no entertainment activity for the guests and the guest of honor? Let there be rounds of entertainment at the party so that all the people are duly entertained and enjoy the party to the fullest.
Some of the sought-after entertainment activities to include in a birthday party are music, games, dance, karaoke sessions, etc.
Plan the birthday gift
A surprise birthday party is incomplete without surprising them with a birthday gift. Of course, cakes, flowers, and décor are a part of a surprise birthday celebration; but your gift has to be something special.
Choose a custom-made birthday gift for them. A birthday bobblehead is a unique birthday gift idea to give to the birthday boy/birthday girl. You can customize it with their face on the figurine and present it to them at the party. Personalized birthday gifts add a personal touch to the birthday present. We promise they will love this sweet gesture.
It is the most essential and difficult part of pulling off a surprise birthday party for your loved one. You need to play smart while creating a story that will make the birthday boy/birthday girl go to the location of the party without them being suspicious.
Be the Sherlock Holmes and create a story very meticulously. For instance, you can create a background of having an alternate event to attend a few days before their birthday. It will minimize their suspicion and will convince them that such an event exists. You can also involve a friend or family member in backing your story.
Lastly, let there be good food, good drinks, and a lot of good vibes around. You can also keep the surprises coming between the party to pamper the guest of honor even more. Follow everything as mentioned above and make this surprise birthday party a big hit.
