If you have a friend or family member who is about to celebrate their birthday, you may be planning a party. Someone's birthday is the perfect time to show them how much they are liked and loved by those around them. Below is a guide which will help you to plan the perfect birthday party.
Keep it Secret
While the person will, of course, know that their birthday is coming up soon, they don't need to know how it will be celebrated. A surprise party can really increase the thrill and enjoyment of a party for the person who is being celebrated. However, if you keep your plan completely secret, the person will guess that you have a surprise in store. Instead, you should create a decoy plan, which you can discuss with them, such as going for a quiet meal. This will help to keep your actual plan secret.
Invite People They Haven't Seen in a Long Time
While the family and friends of the birthday boy or girl will be expected to attend. You should do your best to reach out to people that they have not seen in a long time such as old friends from the other side of the country, former schoolmates or former work buddies. Inviting these people to the celebration can help to add a new dimension to the surprise. If you wish to track down people from the person's past, you should speak with their old school, former workplace or older relatives who may remember the people they used to know.
Hire a Party Bus
The surprise doesn't have to happen when they walk through the door into the party. You can build the suspense by hiring a party bus. A party bus is a vehicle which is fitted out with a sound system, lights and comfortable seats. Drinks and snacks can be enjoyed while the party bus transports the person celebrating their birthday and their close friends to the surprise party. You may also wish to speak to the driver so the route to the party can include some local places which have a special meaning to the person. Or, you may opt to have the party bus stop at the houses of friends and family so they can jump onboard.
