Surprise, Senbei, Party !
A surprise party is a party that is not made known beforehand to the person in whose honor it is being held. Birthday surprise parties are the most common kind of surprise party. The guests might even conceal themselves from view, and when the honored person enters the room, they leap from hiding and all shout, “Surprise!” For some surprise birthday parties, It is considered to be a good tactic to shock the honored person. Streamers, silly string, and balloons may be used for this purpose. Evidence of a party, such as decorations and balloons, are not made visible from the exterior of the home, so that the honored person will suspect nothing.
HOW TO THROW A SURPRISE PARTY (AND NOT GET CAUGHT)
What makes a surprise party so good? If you’re the host or planner, it’s from the giddiness that forms from knowing what will happen. If you’re the guest of honour, you get the joy of knowing that people have planned something just for you. It’s a special feeling…
At all times, you need to remember who is in control: you. Everything that happens is because of you. If you lose control, don’t expect things to go off without a hitch. You can delegate, but you need to know that those you’ve delegated to are trustworthy and reliable. Otherwise, your intended surprise might end up a dud.
There are some basic rules you should follow to ensure that your party goes well and without hitches. Above all, you don’t want to get caught in making the preparations, and spill the beans to the indenting surprisee.
1. Secrecy are the first and second words
2. Separate and isolate communications
3. Better to over-involve than under-involve
4. Inform clearly and explicitly
5. Know what’s going on at all times
6. Be mindful of what you say
7. Cover your tracks
7. Make sure you have a backup plan
