I need ideas for a 20 year old's birthday party. Her sister wants to do a surprise party for her, but I am not sure where. I thought about the park and that may be where we end up. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome!

You could always bring back memories by throwing an old school themed party. Things like photo banners and slide shows of her and friends could be hung up. As for food, serve snacks that you used to eat when you were kids (combos, Bagel bites, Twinkies, etc.).
In front of each snack, on a small folded piece of paper that stands up, write funny memories that may have something to do with the food it's in front of (e.g. "Hey Jen, remember when you dared me to eat a whole case of these [twinkies]? I got so sick!") Play music that was a big hit when you were in middle school, mixed in with some of the newer stuff, and Karaoke is always fun.
You could also do a red carpet themed party with lots of glitter, a plastic red carpet, and some cocktails. Feather boas and other little fancy details might make it more fun. You can designate one person, or a few on rotation to be your paparazzi for the night.
Some nice paper or real flowers might be nice at either party, so guests can put them in their hair, and nachos are always a good party snack to help bring people together. (08/17/2008)
