Look what happened now...
1st let me just say, "No. Don’t even."
2nd "ok." sigh But only because I was asked to help host one for a dear friend.
SO I SHALL.
But I am a Leo. (Which means) I think BIG! And I like Shiny, Glittery, and Over the Top Things. I am the "GO TO GAL" of that sort of thing. A BBQ in the backyard, huh? Me? No. Spa Retreat? YES! Party in Paris? Yes, Cruise? Why yes. I’ll take two!
Here is a list of ideas that I put together for this event. Maybe you can use some of these ideas for your friends. :D
A Destination Birthday
We all have been invited to (or do it ourselves) the destination wedding. Always Fun! Why not do the same for an adult birthday?
Las Vegas – You would not believe how many “little shits” turn 21 in Sin City! I know because they are always in the elevators with me, explaining it’s their birthday…
Anyway..The Room Prices are so CHEAP Right now. Why not go??
Spa Retreat- you and the girls (and the guys) check in close to home or far away for a weekend of pampering! Who wouldn’t love that??
Resort-Call those resorts that offer wedding packages and see what they can do for you as a birthday package. Most properties are more than willing to work with you. Make memories!
Cruise-My favorite! It can be very affordable. They offer both short get aways or a longer awesome trips. This also allows you to plan well in advance. A small deposit holds the cruise allowing time to pay off the trip. There is more than enough to do on the ship for everyone from Spa to Casino.
Always a safe bet for a party, wedding or family event.
Local Bed & Breakfast-Call and discuss your plan & budget. Most are ready to work with you. I planned a wedding shower once like this. We had tea in an old Victoria house and opened the presents. It was affordable and we didn’t have to do those rather tacky decorations.
· Always ask for the package deals!
· Decide your budget first and be realistic.
· Delegate as much as you can to the staff at your venue. Its what they do and your paying for it anyway.
Now please share your ideas. What was a Great Surprise Party you attended? What made it great?
Just a Woman in the World. Sometimes a lonely traveler, sometimes with the Krewe. Eating, shopping and meditating my way through life...
