A surprise birthday party is fun for both the guests and the guest of honor. Planning a surprise birthday party takes some secrecy and just a little bit of trickery to pull off the perfect surprise. You can hold the surprise party at the guest of honor’s home, at a friend’s home, a restaurant, or even plan an entire surprise getaway day. While any type of party is fun, there are a few elements that are essential to planning a birthday surprise. The following tips will help you keep the surprise and plan a birthday party that the guest of honor will enjoy.

Planning the Party
It is great to have an accomplice when planning a surprise birthday party. Although it is not impossible to keep the party a secret and plan all of the elements by yourself, having a helper who does not live in the same house as the guest of honor makes it that much easier. If you have someone off-site to help, it is easier to store party supplies, decorate the party venue, and receive responses from guests without the birthday guy or girl discovering your secret.

Like all parties, the best surprise birthday parties have a theme that relates to what the guest of honor likes. If they are casual, have a barbeque in the backyard or even a luau. If they are interested in good food, book the party at a nice restaurant that they have not tried. While the big reveal is the main focus of the fun, have something for guests to do afterward. Depending on the type of party, this can be dinner, games, swimming, or dancing.
