Sometimes the best way to show your love to someone you care about on their birthday is to give them a gift. In other situations, nothing besides a huge surprise party will suffice. Unfortunately, a lot of health law degree graduates of Hofstra Law go on to be so successful that their schedules are indefinitely busy. If you are trying to plan a loved one’s birthday party, you at least have to have some idea of when they are going to be available. Here is a helpful guide that will aid you in throwing a birthday bash for Hofstra University alumni and others who are busy in their careers and always racking up extra hours at work.
The Planning Phase
This is the point where you can be creative, playful, and fun with your birthday party plans. Choosing a venue is important as this will help to maintain the element of surprise. Is your special someone more inclined to be surprised at home or do you think that hosting the party at a bar or restaurant will help with keeping your plans under the radar? Choose a theme for the birthday party, as well as a time and date so that you can get on to the next step.
Coordinating with Guests
Birthday parties are more fun when you are going to have a lot of guests in attendance. Be sure to try and invite your Hofstra University graduate’s best friend and perhaps some other alumni. Family is also important, so when you are drawing up the guest list you should include all siblings, parents, cousins, and even grandparents who want to come and help you celebrate in a special way. Planning a party where guests are going to be coming in from far away will be a little harder, but the surprise will also be that much more special.
Keeping the Party a Surprise
Think to yourself if you are going to be able to pull this off without arousing suspicion. Can you keep everything a secret without being obvious, or panic when your loved one becomes suspicious? Try to do all of your party planning away from your home and at times when your loved one is going to be busy. Next, find a way to lock your special person in for a specific date and time. You can do it under the guise of having something important to talk about. In addition, try to ensure that you have a contact at your loved one’s place of employment so that he or she doesn’t get stuck at work during your planned surprise party. This is one of the few times it can be appropriate to invite a boss to a subordinate’s birthday party.
Get a copy of your loved one’s schedule and plan the party for a date and time that you are sure they won’t be at work. Make excuses and be theatrical if you have to. You don’t want to make big celebration plans for someone who ends up missing out on their own surprise birthday party.
