Be creative with the food! While birthday cake and punch is fine, for a casual gathering, it doesn't take much more effort to make the party food really shine. If you are worried about budget, you can ask each party guest to bring a favorite party dish (or something reminiscent of the birthday boy or girl), to add as a potluck favorite. A taco, soup or potato bar, can feed a lot of people, without putting a major dent in the budget, and best of all most of the food can be prepared ahead. For a really easy solution for food, you can have the party at the birthday celebrant's favorite restaurant, just be sure to let the each of the party guests know the menu prices, if you won't be picking up the tab.
For within the planning of children's birthday parties and the offering of invitations is a minefield fraught with ethical stumbling blocks and booby traps. Here are three pointers to help you maneuver the maze.
Don't forget the extras-Just because it is a surprise birthday party, there is no reason to forget the extras. You can have games, activities, crafts, and even party bags that are all specific to the age group of the party. For a party that encompasses kids to adults, consider having theme tables. Crafts and activities for kids, with quieter spots for adults to gather and converse. As a final touch be sure to leave some disposable cameras around so that party guests can snap pictures of each other, and the birthday boy or girl enjoying the party.
Lemon Loves Lime designs the cutest numbered birthday girl t-shirts that can be coordinated with a Lemon Loves Lime ruffle skort or a cute skirt. Ooh La La couture birthday dress is another cute option for a birthday girl dress.
Why not throw your own diva dance party at home and include all the extras! You can hire lights and even a mirror ball, and use your iPod or MP3 player to provide an unlimited stream of party dance music for the girls. Why not do a little research and find out what the latest dance craze is, or dances that your daughter and her friends might love. With plenty of birthday party food, and a video camera, the fun is unlimited in her very own dance party. And to top it off, why not include a microphone and have Karaoke performances, making sure that you video tape it because these recordings will bring you joy in years to come, and provide a wonderful source of embarrassment on your daughter's 21st birthday!
