Ideas for Planning a Surprise Birthday Party
Doing something special for the man you have loved and will love for the rest of your life is a very beautiful feeling. After the wonderful roles he plays throughout the year, as a father, a husband and the "man of the house", your hubby deserves a great birthday. Even though he won't really expect you to throw him a party, arrange his favorite local band to play for him, or take him out for a vacation, surprising him with ideas like these will surely make his day special.
Pick an Idea for the Surprise
There are so many things you can do to surprise your husband on his birthday, but of course you need to plan it in advance. Thus, the first step is to come up with an idea for the surprise. When you come up with the basic idea for the birthday surprise about a month before, you get time to chalk out a plan and implement it with the required arrangements. The following surprise ideas might be of some help.
- If your hubby is a sports person, you could plan a party in a sports bar, or get mementos such as autographed jerseys, accessories or helmets for him. You could get him tickets to a game, book great seats and announce a "happy birthday" on the score board.
- Planning the party in a great lounge or his favorite restaurant, and having a theme party with dress codes, music, food and gifts can be an ultimate idea. If he is a bike or car crazy husband and loves collecting miniatures, making some exclusive additions to his collection could also be a great surprise.
- An unplanned vacation to one of his favorite destinations could completely take him aback, as he's surely not expecting this. If you have a low-budget, a simple weekend getaway to the city outskirts and throwing him a party there could also do.
Invite His Loved Ones
Once you have picked the idea for the surprise, the rest of the arrangements can be made easily. All you have to do is make a guest list and include friends and family from far away (those he hasn't met for a long time). If you want to make the party a big one, you could arrange for his close friends and family staying overseas to come over just for the party and surprise him. Office colleagues, his boss, people he interacts every day, your friends, and many others could also join the crowd to make the party more enjoyable. But, make sure you mention it is a surprise, so that everyone keeps it a secret for him.
Make the Arrangements
After the invitations are out to all your guests, you need to take care of the rest of the arrangements such as booking the party venue, decorating it, arranging for the food and music, baking or booking the birthday cake, and buying him his birthday gift (all this without dropping a single hint throughout the month). Make sure you arrange for his favorite food and music, with a personalized cake idea. If the gift is going to be delivered, also find out if there are any delays, as you don't want him waiting for it once he knows right? Well, after you have made these arrangements, you need to think about how to put up the surprise on his birthday! But we are going to leave those ideas for husband's birthday for you to plan, so take all the time you need.
With these great ideas, I am sure your man is going to have the biggest smile on his face. So, enjoy your success and make that surprise the best one he's got so far.
