When your child turns into an adult and is about to celebrate their eighteenth birthday, you may want to surprise them with a party. You can invite their friends and family to join in the celebration of them becoming an adult and ensure they have a fantastic time. It does not have to be a massive party, and if you plan it well, you can ensure everyone has a fantastic time, and the party is memorable. Below are some tips to help you plan a fabulous surprise party and ensure you get everything you need to arrange a party they will never forget.
Consider Who To Invite
You will need to make a list of all the friends and family you want to invite to the party and ensure that you are discreet. If the party is a surprise, the last thing you want is for someone to let the cat out of the bag and spoil the surprise. As such, do not bother with written invitations and speak to all the guests on the phone and have them confirm if they will attend or not. Once you have all the invites done, you will need to decide where to hold the party.
Where To Hold The Party?
You will also need to consider where you are going to hold the party, and you may struggle to keep it a secret if you are going to have it in your home. You can consider holding it at someone else’s home if they are willing, but this will cause a lot of mess, so it is a massive imposition. However, you can consider hiring a venue for the party, which will help you keep it secret, and once you have confirmed the venue, you will need to think about the catering for the event.
Catering For The Party
You will also need to consider the catering for the party and whether you will do it yourself or hire a reputable catering company to do it for you. You can also ask the venue for the party if this is something that you can do, which can save you a lot of time and hassle. Ensure that you have a wide selection of food available for guests and try and make sure that vegans and vegetarians have options to eat.
A Stunning Birthday Cake
You will also need to ensure that you get a superb birthday cake for the celebration, such as a wonderful champagne bottle birthday cake. As they are eighteen and allowed to drink, a champagne bottle is an excellent choice and can make for a stunning centrepiece for the buffet table. However, when it comes to having a custom-made cake for the birthday, you need to order it early to ensure there is availability, or you may be disappointed.
Once you have arranged all the above, all you need to do is wait for the day of the surprise party, come up with a way to get them to the venue without suspecting, and have a fantastic time celebrating. You can help ensure that their eighteenth birthday is a celebration they will remember for many years to come.
