Nothing ruins a surprise party more than the celebrator knowing ahead of time. It makes all the effort pointless and also undercuts the reaction you wanted to get from the start. Keeping secrets as big as surprise parties can be difficult especially when a lot of people are involved. Here are some measures you can take to make the party an effective shocker.
Tell no kids
Kids are known to be honest little beings. They still do not grasp the concept of lying for a surprise. They can easily slip and blurt out intel even when not asked. Make sure to keep them in the dark just like the celebrator. If they want to help in the preparations, allow them but tell them a completely different story. Keep the information among your closest friends helping you arrange everything. If you plan on inviting people the celebrator knows, make sure they are closest to them. It can be an added surprise for the celebrator to have the most important people in their lives as part of the plan.
Completely denying the existence of the special day will only lead to more suspicion. You cannot keep them waiting for you to greet them until your surprise. This will signal them that something fishy is going on. What you can do is provide a smaller celebration like an introductory gift. They will think that’s the end of it for the day until you bring them to the main event, which you can schedule in a place like Regatta Hotel.
Choose the best location to make things grander for the celebrator. Look for private function rooms in Brisbane to hold your surprise party. It is easier to set up somewhere else when you do not have to worry about them getting home earlier. Just make up a valid reason to make them go to the function room.
