3. Mail party invitations to all of your invited guests. Make sure the party invitations clearly state it is a surprise and with their help, it should be kept that way. Ask them to please not share the information with your guest of honor or anyone else who might mention it to them.
4. Come up with a planned event which everyone who may run into your guest of honor can use as a diversion if they need to. However, if your guests don’t think they can “lie” to the guest of honor with a straight face, suggest that they avoid them for the time leading up to the party, whenever possible and practical.
5. Ask your invited guests to arrive at least thirty minutes before you expect your guest of honor to arrive. If your guest of honor generally arrives early to events, then you might want to ask your invited guests to come a bit earlier, just in case.
6. Ask your guests to park down the street and out of sight. The only caveat to this is if the guest of honor believes they are attending another event at your home on that day. If this is the case then it won’t really matter much were people choose to park.
7. Once you have done all of the other things suggested, then the only thing you can really do is pray and hold your breath that no one will slip-up and tell your guest of honor about your planned surprise birthday party.
Planning a surprise party can be a lot of fun. If you take the time to build in some diversions into your plan, you are able to help those who might be asked questions by the guest of honor. This will ensure that they are not caught off-guard and without a good, solid, quick answer to give to any questions that they may be asked. By doing this you can have a wonderful surprise party.
