Last month, I prepared a special surprise for my cousin-in-law who was turning the BIG 30! She wasn’t too thrilled of that number, so I wanted to give her something special that she would definitely remember!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 30 individual cards & envelopes
- washi tape
- number print-outs (#1-30)
- 30 helium filled balloons
- assortment of gifts for celebrant
Step 1: Write down a list of 30 close friends and family names. Ask them to say a special message or “1 Reason why they love that person” for the birthday celebrant. Print out their message on individual cards.
Step 2: Once all of your messages have been gathered, seal all envelopes and cards. Print out #1-30 on each envelope. Tape down with fun washi tape.
Step 3: Sneak into their apt or house and scatter helium-filled balloons throughout. I bought 30 of them (to go with the “turning 30″ theme, but feel free to buy however many you want) from Party City. *Party City isn’t always the cheapest, but they get the job done.
Step 4: Scatter the balloons throughout and let them await their surprise.
You could also shower them with gifts! (One for each letter of their name. )
By the way, the surprise was a success! She loved it! She even said it brought a tear to her eyes when she read everyone’s messages. I love when things work out!
