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!

One thought on “DIY FRIDAY!!!

  1. Birthday parties are supposed to be fun, entertaining, and a thing to remember, forever. While planning and throwing a beach birthday party, one of the most important things is that your guests are having a blast. If you live in near the coastal region or are a short drive away from your favorite beach, you should definitely not miss the opportunity to plan your party there. A beach party may seem tough, but it has its own rewards. There are so many beach activities you and your guests can do, the venue is already set, and all you have to do is wait for everyone to arrive. Although there are certain things you need to take care of before, while, and after the party.*
