A surprise party is an amazing way to gather together your friends and family for a fun celebration. Surprise parties are generally held to celebrate birthdays, engagements, weddings, retirements, or holidays like Christmas or Easter. The biggest downside most people fear is that knowing it’s their birthday, engagement, or other special occasions most likely means the person will start trying to guess what is going on and ruin the surprise. The key to throwing an amazing surprise party is to keep it a secret and follow our guidelines for putting together all of the details, so nothing gets missed or messed up.

Surprise Parties – How To Do A Surprise Party In 7 Easy Steps:

Step 1. 

Speak with individuals who would like to attend the surprise party. This ensures that they won’t tell your loved one

Step 2. 

Decide on a date, time, and location for the party. It’s best to schedule it for some time when you know your loved one will be occupied or out of town. Also, make sure it is at an easily accessible location with ample parking nearby if you are throwing your party at a restaurant or other venue.

Step 3. 

Invite every person who will attend the party, even if you already know they can’t make it. The more people you inform, the better because that means that there’s less chance of someone giving away the surprise to your loved one before it happens. Also, be sure to include all of your loved ones’ friends as well as close family members.

Step 4. 

Plan out the surprise party as much as you can, without giving away what you’re planning to those that haven’t been informed. Decide on a theme for the party, whether it’s a birthday, engagement, or graduation celebration, and get started with food, drinks, and entertainment.

If you do not use caterers and want to prepare the food yourself remember to keep it easy, light and tasty. Try a barbecue, restaurant style hakka noodles or snack platters. Make sure you have presents for the guest of honor, and try to book entertainment, performers, or party games if you don’t want your guests simply sitting around talking all night.

Step 5. 

Send out invitations at least a couple of weeks in advance, planning it close to when your loved one will make their big announcement. That way, they are caught off guard when you tell them that it’s for their party instead of what they were expecting.

Step 6. 

On the night of the surprise party, make sure to capture every moment with pictures and video. The best way to do this is to have someone take pictures with a digital camera or smartphone while another person records things on video. This way, even if you forget to take pictures, your friend or family member can still have proof of the amazing time they had on their special day.

Step 7. 

Give your loved ones an incredible surprise party that they will always remember! Be sure to include all of their favorite foods and drinks as well as the people that matter most to them in their life. Having this moment will be an unforgettable memory for everyone involved, and you’ll all cherish this day forever.

There You Have It

If you follow these steps, your surprise party is sure to turn out great! Everything should run smoothly, so there’s no reason why your loved one should suspect anything!
