Planning a surprise birthday party can be stressful, but if you are determined, to provide the birthday boy or girl, a party they won't ever forget, it just may be the right choice! A surprise birthday party can let that special someone know, that you really care about their special day! It should be noted that if the birthday boy or girl, especially hates surprise parties (and has mentioned this repeatedly), don't be lulled into thinking you can change their mind. However, for most people, they are thrilled and happily surprised that someone took the time to remember them. So if you think planning a surprise birthday party, for someone close to you is a good idea, then here is what you should know-
The tendency to hand out invitations in public places tracks through the grades. In the hubbub that followed a middle school play, I witnessed one preteen distributing birthday party invitations to a delighted crowd surrounding her. Glancing around, I noticed other youngsters also watched the excitement, and were not as pleased about it.
When my younger daughter Hannah was in preschool, I noticed that parents would tuck birthday party invitations into the children's open cubby squares. Though this method did not present a problem when all children in a class were invited to a party, when some youngsters were invited and others were not - particularly when the invitations were in brightly colored envelopes - it was all-too-clear to the ones not invited that there was no envelope in their cubbyhole. In the preschool years, it's better for parents to hand the invitations directly to the other parents or caregivers. Or, if that's not possible due to work schedules, to bite the bullet and mail them. Better yet, to email the invitations if that's an agreeable alternative.
This is my most favorite part of the process! You will need to select a cute birthday girl outfit that coordinates with your birthday party theme. Some of my most favorite brands for cute birthday outfits for girls are Mustard Pie Clothing, Giggle Moon clothing, Ooh La La Couture, Persnickety Clothing clothing and Lemon Loves Lime.
While looking on the internet for birthday party invitations you will very likely find some template software that will guide you step by step through the process. Template software gives you the best of both words, it is as easy to use as ready made invitations that you really get to create yourself.
