"Happy Birthday" written on the side of candles

Birthdays are one of the most special occasions in a person’s life, and as a result, it is essential that you try to make it as memorable as possible. After all, we only have a limited amount of time with our loved ones, and we need to make the most of it. One of the best types of birthday parties to have is surprise parties, where the birthday guy or girl, is completely unaware of the party. This is a great way to make anyone feel special and loved and can truly make the birthday, one to remember. So, we will now cover a few great ideas that you can use to plan your next surprise birthday party.

The “Kidnapping” Surprise Birthday Party

In order to do this, you will need to “kidnap” the surprisee. All you have to do is show up at the person’s house once you know that they’re home. It is important that they don’t expect you on that day. Once they answer the door and see you, you can simply blindfold them and take them to your car. Once they are in the car and are still blindfolded, you can take them to the location of the surprise party. This is definitely unexpected and most people absolutely love this idea. Alternatively, you don’t have to “kidnap” them at their home, but at any place that you know, they’ll be. Of course, if you plan to do so at their workplace, be sure to get the permission of their boss so that they have the day off.

The “Treasure Hunt” Surprise Birthday Party

This is one of my favorite type of surprise parties because you have to give the birthday guy or girl, a map to their surprise party. This map can be in the form of clues, that are left in different locations. For example, you can leave a clue next to their bed, or wherever they will see it. This clue should lead them to another clue in another location. Once they have found that clue, it will lead them to a next location. This can be done in such a way that the person has to go to various locations throughout their home and even neighborhood. It is extremely interactive and fun and is great for the person that loves mysteries. The final clue should lead them to the location of the surprise party.

The “Renting A Limo Or Party Bus” Surprise

If you have a large budget and really want to give the birthday guy or gal a treat, you can rent a limousine or party bus for the day. However, you should pick up all the friends and loved ones of the surprisee, and decorate the limo or bus with lots of balloons, decorations etc. You should ask the surprisee to meet you at a specific place or street corner, and then show up in the limo with all their friends and family. This is truly a lovely surprise that they will definitely remember for many years.

As you can see, there are many different ideas that you can come up with for a surprise birthday party in Newark. All that it requires is a bit of forethought, planning, and creativity. However, it requires a lot of organization to ensure that the surprise goes off without a hitch and the surprisee is truly caught off guard.

In closing, when it comes to planning a surprise birthday party, be sure to keep the above ideas in mind. These ideas will definitely make the birthday guy or girl, truly happy on their special day.

Cool High School Graduation Party Ideas Your High Schooler will Love

Hosting a graduation party is an excellent way to show a high school graduate how proud you are about their achievements. If you are stuck trying to come up with graduation ideas, do not fret. There are numerous ways that you personalize the event based on the high schooler’s tastes and interests.

Backyard Party

One of the best ideas for a graduation party is a low-key backyard BBQ. Just fire up the grill and serve the graduate and his or her pals burgers, hot dogs, chicken and ribs. If you have a swimming pool, ensure you tell the attendants to carry their bathing towels and suits. You can even keep the bash going after the sun sets with tiki torches, bonfire and some cool music. Do not forget the chocolate, marshmallows and crackers.


Another excellent high school graduation idea is to host a potluck with the graduate’s relatives and friends. Depending on his or her preferences, you could turn the potluck into a dinner party where everybody brings a different side dish or entree. Other distinct ideas are to host a themed potluck such as an Italian foods party, taco party or even world foods party. You can get the guests to state the types of foods they will be bringing to avoid having too much of the same food item.

Friends Shared Graduation Party

If the graduate has one or several close friends, you can decide to host a shared graduation party. Communicate with the parents and friends of the other high school graduates regarding guests, food, and gifts. A joint gathering is an excellent idea for high school graduation as it allows guests to attend a single, massive party instead of being forced to choose who’s to attend when they fall on the same weekend as another.

Local Venue Party

Another excellent idea for a graduation party is to host the event at a local restaurant, hotel, or party center. A local Heath party venue is perfect if you plan on having a large number of guests at the event and you don’t have to worry about the decorations or clean up. Other excellent location ideas for such a graduation party would be a ranch, cruise ship or even a convention center. However, bear in mind that most of the guests will be the graduate’s close friends and so, you may not want them to travel too far to get to the event location. If you pick a place that requires driving, consider hiring a shuttle bus to transport everyone.

Considerations: Budget

When planning for the graduation party, there are several things to consider, and one of the most important is the budget. It can be relatively easy to get carried away with spending money on decorations and the rest of the things. So, sit down with whoever is assisting you and create a financial plan. This is essential as it will dictate most of the decisions you make and prevent you from overspending. A budget will also determine what type of graduation party to host. If you are not looking to spend a fortune, a small backyard bash will be sufficient. If you want to go all out, a renting our a restaurant or local venue will be more fitting. A budget will also help determine the type of food and entertainment you’ll be able to afford as well.
