Let’s be honest here—throwing a surprise birthday party isn’t exactly the most stress-free activity in the world. The task can be truly daunting! The reason is that it can be difficult to get everyone organized and on the same page. And, most importantly, surprising the birthday person can prove to be quite challenging as well. However, fret not, as we have listed 5 tips to help you throw the best surprise birthday party!
Tip 1: Deciding on the venue (date/time)
Of course, you must decide on a date, time, and venue for the surprise. You must ensure that the birthday boy or girl is available on that day and time. It might be best if you throw the surprise birthday before the real birthday date. Doing this will lower suspicion. There are many options for you to choose from when deciding on a venue. For example, you could have the surprise party indoors at your home, outdoors at a park, a swimming pool, or at a campground. Get creative and plan the party around the guest of honor’s interests.
Tip 2: Dress code for the occasion
It is important for you to think of a dress code for the surprise party. For instance, you wouldn’t want the guests to be dressed in formal attire when the birthday boy or girl arrives at the venue in casual wear.
Tip 3: Make sure everyone is on the same page
It is of paramount importance for you to appoint a time for guest to arrive that is much earlier than the time the surprise is planned to begin. By doing so, you will ensure that the late attendees won’t play an atrocious role in ruining the surprise. Hence, when inviting the guests, you must ensure that they know it is a ¨surprise¨ party; you must also tell them that they are expected to turn up in the ¨surprise area¨ at the stipulated time! And, if someone is late, you should send a text to alert them of the situation. If you want to be really safe, you should request the late person to stay in the car for a while until the surprise is over.
Tip 4: Document the experience
You must document the entire surprise. Hence, it is imperative for you to film and take snaps of the surprise moments. In order to ensure that the guests feel involved and are invested in the surprise, you can consider distributing disposable cameras around. You will have pictures of the surprise moments from all angles and directions!
Tip 5: Consider hiring the services of a live band
No party should be devoid of the services of a live band. The interactive live band can easily get the guests involved in the celebration by performing chartbusting numbers, encouraging all the guests to report to the dance floor, and dance till their feet hurt. These bands at Black Tie Group in Brisbane will undoubtedly help you take the surprise birthday party to another level.
