Three tips for an unforgettable surprise birthday party
If you’re in charge of organising a surprise birthday party for a friend, colleague or family member, you want to do it the right way. Of course you want this birthday to be one that everyone will talk about for months! In this article, you’ll find three tips to make the surprise birthday party an absolute blast!
Choose an interesting venue
A normal party at the bar can be a lot of fun, but also somewhat forgettable. Go on the hunt in your neighbourhood and take a look at the venues around you. A lot of them might be rentable for a night if you ask around! What do you think about a “time for the convent!” party at an old, repurposed church? Whatever venue you choose, keep in mind that it has to has space for all the attendants to hide!
Bachelorettes and kids’ birthday parties aren’t the only kind of parties that can be accessorized to the max. Let’s be real: everyone loves big balloons, banners and personalised, fun items. Furthermore, it’s also fun to buy some personalised products for the birthday boy or girl and the other attendees. You can, for instance, print the birthday boy or girl’s face on a fan (Dutch: waaiers bedrukken) – it is hilarious when they arrive and all the attendants have a fan with their face on it. This kind of personalised gift is also fun for the guests to take home. Other cool items to print with personalised messages are sunglasses (Dutch: zonnebrillen bedrukken) and flip flops (Dutch: slippers bedrukken). You can go as wild as you want!
Make a personalised menu
If you hold a “normal” party at a bar, you can never really personalise the food and drinks. But if you rent out a bar or another venue, you can put your own twist on the menu! Something that’s always super fun for the birthday boy or girl is a personalised menu, full of their favourite drinks and snacks. It doesn’t even have to be bar food; if the birthday boy or girl is obsessed with fairy bread, it’s hilarious to get some fairy bread on a plate, next to, for instance, a glass of their favourite wine.
Hopefully this advice can help you organise the best party ever!
