How to organize a surprise party

  1. Would your friend enjoy a surprise party? It is very important to know if the person would enjoy being surprised, because there are people who are more shy and could feel uncomfortable in a surprise moment.
  2. Another important point is not to forget anyone! Therefore, a tip is to contact parents or someone who is also close to that person so that you can gather all the friends and family that person would like to be surrounded by and celebrate the date.
  3. A practical idea is to create a WhatsApp group with your guests to see all the details of the party, such as date, time and location. Ask them to confirm their presence until a few days before so you can organize the party in the best possible way!
  4. Ordering, decorating and organizing the space can be a bit complicated and stressful for one person, so get your closest guests to help you organize and plan the surprise party!
  5. The location is also an important point, you can rent a hall, do it in a restaurant, in a club, or even organize the celebration in your house or in the house of one of the guests that can accommodate all the friends and family. Check this in advance so the person doesn't get suspicious!
  6. The cost of having a party can be quite high, so make a pool among the guests to pay for the rent (if any), food, drinks, and decoration. Another interesting idea is to ask everyone to bring some dish or drink! This way everyone helps out and the pocketbook weighs less.
  7. Choose a date and time that suits most of the guests and, of course, don't forget to ask if the person to be surprised is also available on this day and time. Be careful how you ask, it's important that the person doesn't suspect anything so as not to lose the element of surprise!
  8. Think of a party theme that the person would like to have. You can create the decoration inspired by a movie or TV series they like, a team they cheer for, or even a country they want to visit. It is important that the decoration be in accordance with the tastes and preferences of the birthday boy or girl. After all, the party is dedicated to him or her, isn't it?
  9. Does the person like Mexican food or can't live without pizza? Bet on a menu that the person really loves! You can also choose to order snacks and sweets or each guest can bring a dish or drink. If you choose the last option, be careful not to have too many snacks and not too few snacks or drinks! Organize well what each one can bring!
  10. The cake is the most important part of a party! Choose the person's favorite flavor and order according to the number of guests. If you have a lot of sweets, the cake doesn't need to be so big. Decorate it with a personalized cake topper with the event's theme!
  11. For the decoration, how about creating a photo wall to remember good moments? Ask the guests to bring some pictures for you to create this small space. Very easy to do, you can stick the pictures on the wall or, with some string and clothespins, you can hang the pictures around the place of the party.
  12. Finally, choose someone who will be responsible for bringing the birthday boy or girl to the party. This part is extremely important to guarantee the surprise! So plan the "story" well so that they arrive at the place at the scheduled time. You can also arrange for the person to show up at the party, but it's safer if you have someone accompanying you to make sure everything goes smoothly!

With these tips it will be easier to plan the event, and by following them all, your surprise party will be amazing! Below, check out some super creative ideas to decorate the place and make it look just like you!
