Planning an event or party can be stressful! When it’s a surprise party, it’s even more stressful to keep everything a secret. But a few preparations ahead of time will ensure a smooth process and a wonderful surprise! First, decide on the location of the party. Having it at the honoree’s home will make it a little more challenging because you’ll have to make sure they are away the day of the party so that you can decorate and prepare the food. Holding the party at another location like an event venue or restaurant might be easier. Then, invite guests and be sure to let them know it’s a surprise. Include details about where they should park and their arrival time so that it doesn’t coincide with the birthday person! Next, plan a fake event for the birthday person to throw them off a bit and have them focus on something else that day. Finally, it’s helpful for the birthday person to have a chaperone on the day of the party. The chaperone can ensure that the birthday person gets to the place on time but not before. Happy planning!
A Party for Trisha
I was invited to capture a surprise birthday party for Trisha. The event coordinator arranged everything. Her home was beautifully decorated and all the details were meticulously planned by Trisha’s daughter. She even made the gorgeous flower arrangements that adorned the house. Trisha’s husband made sure that she arrived just on time to the party. When she entered the house, it was clear that she had no idea about the surprise and was clearly taken aback. Her tears and smiles told the whole story. Surrounded by family and friends, Trisha celebrated her birthday! Her sisters and brother were there and her kids and their families. What a fun celebration and a beautiful surprise.
The catering was provided by 1836 Steakhouse. Everyone enjoyed appetizers, drinks, and a lovely sit-down dinner. Her cake was adorned with colorful flowers- it was truly one-of-a-kind. Truly a beautiful event!
