Tips for Throwing a Surprise Party

Throwing a Surprise Party


Birthday parties, retirement parties, or promotions – whatever the celebration, show your special someone how much they mean to you by surprising them with a private yacht charter! By following these tips and leaving the rest to our full service event planner, you’re sure to throw a flawless, one-of-a-kind surprise party!


You’re going to need an accomplice, so make sure it’s someone who is tight-lipped. This person’s phone and address will be the go-to for R.S.V.P.’s and any other evidence you don’t want to be caught red-handed with.


Once you have your “partner in crime” – start planning! A guest list is a great place to begin. After that is complete, it’s time to spread the word. Phone calls work best as there is no hard evidence but mailed invitations and Facebook events work well, too! Just make sure to reiterate that it’s a surprise party. If you do decide to utilize Facebook, double-check that the event is private or your guest of honor might see it on their Timeline. (Rookie mistake)


A theme is always a great addition to a surprise party. Once you have a theme set in place, start adding in all the details. This is where our event planner comes in. From photography and videography to the entertainment and setting up the decorations – we’re here to assist you every step of the way or just to tie up any loose ends.


When it comes time for the big reveal, it’s important that no one ruins the surprise at the last minute! There’s nothing worse than someone running late and your surprise-ee prematurely noticing that your “company’s party” is in fact a party in their honor!
