Ideas for Surprise Birthday Invitations

Aug 17, 2007
Since surprise birthday invitations cannot be made by the person for whom the party is being held, the task of making them lies on the shoulders of someone who knows him or her very well. A friend, a relative like a sibling or a parent or a co-worker might make these invitations. Knowing the guest of honor well is important because the party, and hence, the invitations, would be based on the personality and tastes of the person who's celebrating the special day.

Surprise birthday invitations should be interesting to get people to attend; they should also have a personal touch. Imagine the surprise and pleasure of the guest of honor when he or she becomes aware of the surprise party. Realizing the time and effort spent on making the invitations and organizing the event would surely touch that person's heart.

A person who knows the guest of honor well can include intimate touches on the invitations; for instance, personal verses or poetry. Fond memories and images that hold special meaning to the birthday boy or girl may also be included in the invitation's design. This way, a very personal touch is added.

If ideas seem hard to come by, the party planner can always seek the help of the Internet. Various Web sites, such as colorsbydesign.com, MyGatsby.com and invitationhaven.com offer suggestions on how to create surprise invitations. The invitations vary in size, types of paper, and price. If time constraints prevent friends or parents from making these surprise invites, they can opt to purchase them instead. This does not have to be a costly matter and can save you lots of time, while still providing a very nice invite.

Party invitations, if done well and in good taste, often find their way into memory albums or are otherwise tucked into a special place as a treasured keepsake. Compare this to what usually happens with dime-store invitations with no personality - it's not unusual to find such things in the garbage bin soon after the party is over.

In making surprise birthday invitations, make sure that the guests understand that the birthday person should not be told of the coming celebration. Also, make sure to confirm whether the people to whom invites were sent are going to attend the party or not. There is nothing worse than planning a surprise party only to discover at the last minute that no one is going to come.
