Planning a party is great fun but it can also be very stressful. Well, you don't have to be a professional party planner to do it. But, having a surprise birthday party is a tricky thing. This year, a few days before 5th March, I discussed with our friends what our expectations were for Ralph's birthday party but we didn't choose a theme for the party. We browsed through some terrific party ideas and helpful planning tips to find just how to throw the perfect birthday.

Party Secret is the trusted source for our complete birthday party supplies needs. They offer over 6,000 party supplies in case quantities at up to 70% off retail prices and complete party decorations for birthdays, baby showers, Halloween parties, corporate events and casino parties and other celebrations! Each theme includes plates, napkins, cups, table covers, invites, banners, cutlery and much, much more! Disposables are a great idea especially the tablecloths, as all the mess can just be bundled into the middle and thrown out at the end of the party.

By all means, I put the effort in but took the shortcuts available to me and tried and made the night as enjoyable as possible for all. I am not going to elaborate my own stress-levels on that day. So, to cut a long story short, we turned off all the lights when he arrived. The moment he opened the door, voila!


*Yell "surprise!"*

Now, what to do for his next birthday... hmm!!!

Organising a party is really not an easy task. I organize a few before. Took a lot of time and energy. But the most important thing is our guests. Ha ;)
