5 Important Hints To Plan A Successful Surprise Party

Successful Surprise Party

Successful surprise parties should have the element of surprise intact.

It takes a lot of work to plan a successful surprise party. With the helpful tips below, you can throw out the best and most memorable surprise party they never saw coming!

1. Invitations

In-person is the best way to invite people to a surprise party. For a surprise to remain a surprise, no one should overhear or accidentally stumble upon your plans.

If you can’t meet with someone in person, a phone call is your next best option. Make sure there are no text invitations as it can be overseen!

Nothing is worse than having a surprise party being ruined by an invitee revealing the secret beforehand. Therefore, make a wise choice on whom to invite and who should be kept in the dark. If there’s a risk of certain invitees spilling the beans about your celebration, make sure it remains a surprise for them as well.

2. Choose a fitting location.

Instead of hosting your event at an obvious, outlandish location, make sure to plan a successful surprise party at a particular place in which the recipient never saw it coming. This will be the most perfect way to plan a successful surprise party without arousing their suspicion. There is a good chance that the person of honor might put two and two together and figure out that something. Therefore, pick a venue that is not so familiar to the person of honor and make sure that it is spacious enough to host all of your guests.

3. Proper Preparations

The person hosting a surprise party is pretty likely to be extremely close to the person of honor. This means that it can be extremely tricky to prepare for it without them noticing it. 

Come up with a really good excuse that suits your situation. Reddit, Quora, and similar sites can come in handy.

Getting the person to the venue is half the battle. There is always a chance that the person of honor might change plans and not want to go. Always make sure to prepare in advance for any unexpected turn of events and the best way it can be tackled. Just make sure that whatever excuse you use sounds believable and doesn’t sound rehearsed!

4. The big reveal

To make it a successful surprise party, you must make sure to maintain the surprise factor at the big reveal. Keep all of your guests quiet and away from the windows and doors! The party will be running very smoothly until an excited friend is spotted at a window by the recipient. This can cause major disappointments for you as well as your guests who were expecting to be entertained by this huge surprise.   

Therefore make sure everyone is quiet and keep them away from common areas, such as the parking lot and the reception.

5. Plenty of party favors and entertainment. 

Nailing the surprise element is not the only thing you’ll have to do. You must not just ensure that the person who is to be surprised is pleased, but that all of the guests are entertained and amused as well.

That means you’ll need to load up on delightful snacks, food, beverages, games, and party favors. Add some relaxed activities like board games, poker, a DIY cupcake bar, etc. Hire a DJ and turn up the music! Bring out the alcohol! Fill your faces with cake and enjoy the party!
