Cheering Up A Loved One: Give Them A Surprise To Remember

You already hold your loved-ones dear; however, have you ever thought about throwing them a surprise get-together? You might want to show a family member how much you appreciate all their help over the years, or perhaps one of your closest friends is going through a difficult time and could use the distraction. Whatever the reason is to organize something special; there’s no time like the present to make them feel truly special and appreciated.

You don’t have to spend a fortune, or create a major event; your nearest and dearest will appreciate any effort you put into making them feel better. The following are some ideas for those who are keen to show someone just how much they mean and that you want to give them a day to remember.


A Venue

No matter how big or small the guest list will be; you’ll need to find a suitable venue that can fit everyone inside comfortably. Bear in mind who’s coming; you might not want to hire out a rooftop that’s only accessible by stairs if there are elderly guests attending. Similarly; you don’t want to hire somewhere too quiet and stuffy if your group are young, and a little loud when they’re having fun (nothing wrong with that). Restaurants often have private dining rooms; so you can enjoy the service and ambiance of the venue without any interruption from the general public. VIP areas in venues could also be a great option, and it will make it feel special.


Your loved one won’t be expecting a gift; however, something thoughtful, that they can keep forever and remember their special day, will give them something to cherish for years. Jewelry is the perfect way to pick something that you know will suit their personality and style, and they can wear it each day. Check out what Alex and Ani offers for some inspiration, and think about colors, textures, and styles that the guest of honor will adore.

Food And Drink

Classic party food and plenty of nibbles is a sure fire way to please all your guests. If you’ve chosen a restaurant as a venue; hopefully you’ll pick your loved ones favorite cuisine, or somewhere you know the majority of people will relish. Check out Pinterest ideas and discover some great recipes and party food inspiration so you can apply what you like the look of to your special day, evening, or night.


A banner with your best friend’s or family member’s name on is the perfect way to set the tone for the party; it’s all about them. You can use traditional balloons, and add homemade bunting, streamers, and ribbons for a low cost, but effective, decorative touch. Have fun with your decor, and stay in the party spirit!

Music And Entertainment

You can create more of an ambiance with music, and ensure everyone gets into the party spirit. If your loved one favors a particular era or genre of music, or they love certain groups and bands; you can play all their favorite songs and truly give them a special night to remember.

So, take time to plan a special day or evening get together for someone special.
