Decorating A Surprise Party For My 17 Year Old Friend

Hey guys, I'm planning a surprise party for my friends 17th birthday. It's going to be at her house and I know who is coming. Do you have any ideas as to how I could decorate her house? I was thinking streamers in her room but I also wanted to do stuff to the rest of her house! Thanks a bunch!

I would make sure you at least do the streamer thing where she will be walking in. Then an occational decoration. (A theme you have chosen) something she likes. Hawaiian etc. Then go from there.

what about going with a theme. and working from could be something she likes, color, like a pink party, or something she collects, or a sport, a favorite book or movie, a make over, (hair,makeup,clothes) or for a way out there could use a theme from the past...the roaring twenties, the fifties, something along that line..when planning a party of any kind its always good to have a center theme plan..makes it more fun and easier to pull off!!...i personally sell invitation note cards(not a pitch,just an idea!) could get personalized invitations with little keepsakes inside for the party goers..that makes the company feel more involved! Hope this helps! nothing better than a party!

I'm actually doing a surprise party for my friend end of this month, too. Well about the decorating, you don't want to spend alot of money on decorations, so go to the Dollar Store, preferable Dollar Tree. Dollar Tree has some really nice decorations. Simply make sure that you have a lot of balloons hanging around so it will make her feel like it's actually a birthday.

Make sure you get her a pretty birthday cake, it's not a birthday if you don't have a a cake and candles, you have to make her feel special. Play some fun games with her, you have to make sure that all the attention is on her, because this is her big day, her birthday. Of course you want her to remember this day forever.

Also, another great idea, go to Michaels or Joanns, whichever, and buy a picture frame, with room around the picture slot for sigings. Have all the people who came to the party sign that frame, and insert a picture from the party so she won't ever forget this big day!! Good luck and best wishes. -Kristine K.
