You'd be surprised how many "simple" things are overlooked

1. Decide on the Type of Celebration

The first step in planning a surprise celebration is to decide on the type of celebration. Will it be a party, a dinner, or a weekend getaway? The type of celebration you choose will determine the location, the guest list, and the activities.

2. Determine the Budget

Once you have decided on the type of celebration, determine your budget. Consider the cost of the venue, food, decorations, and any other expenses. Be sure to set a realistic budget that you can afford.

3. Choose a Date and Time

Choose a date and time that works for the guest of honour and the guests you plan to invite. Make sure it's a date and time that won't interfere with any other important events or commitments.

4. Create a Guest List

Create a guest list of the people you want to invite. Be sure to include close family members and friends who are important to the guest of honour. You can also ask the guest of honour's significant other or close friend to help you create the guest list.

5. Send Invitations

Send out invitations to the guests on your list. Be sure to include the date, time, location, and any other important details about the celebration. You can also include a note asking guests to keep the celebration a secret from the guest of honour.

6. Choose a Venue

Choose a venue that is appropriate for the type of celebration you are planning. It could be a restaurant, a park, a beach, or someone's home. Make sure the venue can accommodate the number of guests on your list and fits within your budget.

7. Plan the Decorations

Plan the decorations to fit the theme of the celebration. You can use balloons, streamers, banners, and other decorations to create a festive atmosphere. You can also hire a professional decorator to help you with the decorations.

8. Plan the Menu

Plan the menu based on the type of celebration and the guest of honour's preferences. You can cater the food or cook it yourself if you prefer. Be sure to have plenty of food and drinks for all the guests.


9. Capture the Moment

Make sure to capture the moment by taking lots of photos and videos. You can also hire a professional photographer or videographer to document the celebration.

Planning a surprise celebration for a loved one can be a lot of work, but it's worth it to see the joy on their face. With these tips, you can plan a successful surprise celebration that your loved one will remember for years to come.

10. Book professionals

Contact to book a professional DJ and take the stress and worry out of the event. A professional DJ will have the equipment, the music and the knowledge to take your party or event to the next level. If it was as easy as hitting play on a playlist everybody would do it. It's not - it takes skill and experience to be the perfect party DJ and not all DJs are created the same!
