Have you ever had to plan a party for someone that really just wasn’t into the idea? Unfortunately, this all-too-familiar situation happens way more often than you would probably think. If you find yourself in this situation, planning a surprise birthday party may be the only option you have. Here are the important steps you need to keep in mind throughout the planning process.
Keep It Secret
A surprise birthday party isn’t really a surprise if the guest of honor finds out about it beforehand. For this reason, it is important to ensure you keep it as secretive as possible for everything to go smoothly in the end. Enlist the help of a few friends or family members that can help ensure no private information gets leaked about your event to avoid ruining the surprise.
Make An Alibi
You may have to bend the truth a little bit to get the guest of honor to the required destination for their surprise birthday party. To do this, invite them out to eat or come up with some other reason to get them to the venue you have chosen. In many cases, a close friend or relative will be responsible for this and get them to the venue at the appropriate time.
Give a Heads Up
For it to truly be a surprise, the guests in attendance will need to be waiting at the venue for the guest of honor to arrive. The chaperone in charge of taking the person to the venue should give a heads up message prior to their arrival to ensure everyone is ready for the big reveal. Once they walk through the doors, all of your hard work will pay off and the party can begin!
