There is no better time to show someone how much you think of them than surprising them on their birthday. The perfect birthday would be a tribute to them from beginning to end.
So, you could start the day off with breakfast in bed. You can make it even more special by selecting foods you know are their favorite menu items.
Then you will want to get ready for the party, (you know the one you have been planning for weeks). Parties can be a bit tricky; here are some tips for you to help ensure the day goes smoothly.
Its Party Time!
Planning a birthday party can be very fun and you can let your creativity flow. The first step to any party is choosing a theme. Of coarse different ages will require different themes. We will just use a party for your teenage daughter as an example.
If you wanted to through her a Hollywood party, you could make invitations that are actually VIP passes to the birthday celebration. It can even be a costume party where the guests have to dress up as someone from Hollywood.
A good idea when making the invitations is to put them on a necklace and make it look like a real VIP passes; you could cut them in the shapes of stars and laminate them for the desired effect.
Then your child could pass them out to all the VIP guests she wants to attend her special day. You could have a red carpet down for your Hollywood guests to make their grand entrances on.
Decorate the inside with stars, pass out a few cameras to the paparazzi and before you know it you have a successful Hollywood party! That is just one theme, you are sure to find a theme that will suit your birthday buddy. Be creative, have fun with it and your party is sure to be a success.
The most important thing about celebrating any birthday is the thought you put in to the day. However, a thoughtful present doesn't hurt either. Finding the right present will depend on the person you are buying it for and their likes or dislikes.
Be creative and extra touches like themed wrapping paper, bows, a nice card, balloons etc. A small sign of appreciation will seem like a very big deal to the birthday boy or girl.
It is the thought that counts, and if you make a big deal about someones birthday, chances are they will return the favor.
But that is not the reason to do it, the best reason to make someone feel special on their birthday is because you want to show them just how much they mean to you.
