How to plan your next surprise party

Hiii lovelies, so about a week ago I posted about surprising Mr. Ryan

for his 30th!! He didn’t really want anything but I am HUGE on birthdays.

Like- I take a week off every year for my bday *HUGE*


I also LOVE planning *insert anything here*

So planning his surprise party was so much fun for me.

Here’s how you can plan a successful surprise party for your boo:


STEP 1: Plan a month ahead!

The older you get, the more difficult it is to get people together.

(Even for birthdays)

So planning ahead will give everyone & yourself time to plan accordingly.

STEP 2: Guest list?

Find out who’s willing to come out to celebrate and if they are willing to travel.

STEP 3: What & Where?

What are you doing and where.

I decided to do something different for Ry. I knew he never celebrated at Foxwoods before.

So I asked all his friends if they were willing to drive there.

And if the specific day I was planning would be doable for everyone.

STEP 4: Make a reservation!

Make a reservation WAY ahead of time.

You don’t want to be stuck on “plan b” due to poor planning.

Refer to Step 1 for reasons why.

STEP 5: Play the role

Step 5 is the most difficult, or at least it is for me.

I suck at lying but I had to play the role until his surprise party.

I was texting and talking to his friends but I couldn’t tell him!

I had to make him believe we were going away alone.

When we arrived at the hotel, I hardly looked at my phone.

Looking at your phone all the time is suspicious.

I did it once and told him I was speaking to one of my girlfriends about “xyz.”

It’s also important to let the door man know ahead of time that it’s a surprise.

You don’t want to go through all that work and have it ruined seconds before.

Play it cool, go with the flow and have fun with it  😉


It was worth all the planning seeing him happy and enjoying time with his friends.

We had an amazing night at Scorpion Bar, Foxwoods.

I made dinner reservations and then we stayed for the night.

A huge UFC fight was playing- so half the crowd was watching it.

And the other half was at the dance floor.

Everyone had an amazing time.


I hope this is helpful for your next surprise party planning;)
