How to Host a Surprise Birthday Party Without the Key Guest Knowing!


Nov 12, 2015 | Editors

We all have that dreaded fear that the person we are arranging a surprise birthday party for works it all out and our surprise is no longer a surprise! 

If you have that fear, do not worry as these 4 tips will ensure that your party remains a top classified secret that even Sherlock Holmes could not figure out: 

  1.      Decide on your Party Venue. 

Naturally, your party will need decorations, entertainment and arranging. Due to this, it is ideal to have an external venue where you can do all of this that is out of the way, so that the guest of honour will not have an inkling of what is going on. 

  1.      You need an RSVP system 

If you are getting messages and phone calls about the surprise party, it will soon be worked out. Therefore, create a Private Facebook event or a new email address that everyone can RSVP to, so that you ensure that a conversation is not overheard or a message read by mistake. 

  1.      You need a place for deliveries 

If you are ordering party supplies online, the last thing you want is a delivery from a surprise birthday party being signed for by the person whose surprise party it is! 

Therefore, ensure that you arrange with a friend or family member to accept deliveries to their home or place of work. 

  1.      You need an alias 

Of course, the key person at the surprise birthday party is the guest of honour. It is crucial that he or she does not have another engagement booked for that day, so make sure you have something planned with them for that day. 

This could be anything from a concert to a meal, just as long as it reserves them for that day.
