If you have a close friend whose birthday is coming up, you may want to consider throwing your friend a surprise party. Everyone wants to be made to feel important on their birthday and there is no better way to make a person feel very special than to throw them an amazing birthday party. Throwing a birthday party is quite simple and it does not have to cost excessive amounts of money. Most people do not throw parties because they believe that parties cost a lot of money but there are many ways to throw parties without having to spend much money at all.
Choose a location
It is the location that you choose that will define the cost of the surprise party that you are going to throw for your friend. If you choose a very expensive, high end location, then your cost will go up significantly and the truth is, you might not even be able to have a lot of fun at a location like this. You could instead look for pubs with function rooms because these will not only be cheaper but you will also have more freedom to be yourselves.
There is no doubt at all that your friend will very much enjoy a birthday party at a pub with a few beers and some great pub food.
Create a guest list
This is the tricky part. You will need to figure out who your friend’s closest friends are. If you are already a part of a group of friends or a clique, the party could be for just the few of you but if you are planning on inviting other people, you will need to get your detective skills sharpened and do a bit of research. If your friend is married or in a relationship, his or her partner should be able to clue you in on his or her closest friend’s which will make things a lot easiest for you. You will also need to invite the birthday person’s siblings and close family members if the party is going to be more than just your group. You will need to get one friend to take your friend out on another errand and then bring him or her to the party location under the guise of grabbing a birthday beer or something of the sort. Your plan needs to be meticulous in order to prevent the secret from getting out because sometimes, more often than not, surprise parties end up being found out because someone slipped up with their duties.
