November 6th, 2017

Often birthdays of special ones make us very eager. We wait more eagerly for the date to arrive, for us to throw them a surprise party and shower our love in the form of gifts and cakes. So, in today’s article, we will be talking about the commonest thing of all, how to make a successful surprise birthday party.

  1. Cake- the most important thing is the cake when it comes to the birthday celebration. And since you are throwing a surprise birthday treat, make sure the birthday girl/boy has no clue about the cake delivery. Also, if you know the preference of the cake then you can make it special too. Go for personalized cakes, because they look amazing and they are really trending these days.
  2. The theme for the party- since you are the organizer, you have to think of a theme. Based on that theme, you need to arrange for the decorations, keep a dress code and order the cake. Also, you need to keep in mind whether the party is going to be a day event or a night event. All these things have to be synced in properly, or else your preparation looks very haphazard. And I am sure this is not what you want to be spreading by word of mouth.
  3. Guestlist- now remember; this is not your birthday party. It is for someone else. So the guest list has to be according to the birthday girl/boy. So, if that means you need to invite someone you don’t really like but those people are close to the birthday girl then you have to invite them too. The whole point is to make a memorable birthday bash. So you do whatever it takes.
  4. Food and drinks- this is the most important part when it comes to any party. Many people only for a party invite to the free food and drinks. So, you might end up inviting a few such people too. But then it is something you just can’t avoid! So, make sure you get the best of caterers to take care of the drinks and food. Also, do supervise the menu prepared by the caterers and please do not leave everything up to them. Your involvement is necessary.
  5. The surprising part- this is the most important part. You need to make sure that the birthday girl/boy has no clue about the birthday party otherwise there is no point in organizing a surprise birthday party. You could order birthday cakes online so that the birthday boy is clueless. Also, make sure that all the party planning is done without him/her knowing anything.

I am sure keeping these things in mind if you throw a surprise birthday party it will never go flop. Also, just a tip for the planner- make a list of the duties you need to fulfill and to avoid any confusion. Avoid last minute decisions and if the party responsibilities are too much then you must delegate some work.

The 15th wedding anniversary is the third in line of the five yearly milestones of the marriage of a couple. It is certainly a cause for celebration when you cross the mark of a decade and a half of togetherness. You may celebrate it quietly in each other’s company or throw a grand party.


Crystal is the traditional gift for the 15th anniversary. It stands for the clear and sparkling love shared by the couple. Modern symbols of this anniversary are glass and watches. A watch represents the valuable time you have shared together as well as the time in the future which you have planned to spend.

Many spouses find it tough to choose between traditional and modern gifts. For instance, no matter how pretty, a Timex will not qualify for a romantic gift.

Crystal has a reputation for being fragile and delicate. It must be handled with care. It can serve as a glorious reminder of the love you shared for the last 15 years. It is also a pointer to a future of togetherness. For a sturdy symbol, you can gift a solid crystal paperweight which is not too fragile. Some other amazing crystal ideas include crystal vases, decanters, bells and stemware.   Order a cake delivery for the occasion and display it in a crystal plate.

If you are bent upon a modern gift, go for a watch or time-piece. Time pieces come in all sorts of sizes and shapes. They may hang on walls or sit tight on a work desk or fit snugly around your wrist. One can even buy a time piece that dangles from a chain of silver or gold around your spouse’s neck.

The value of a watch or time piece is in representing the wonderful time you have spent together and the many years you desire to spend with each other in the future. For gifting your husband, you can go in for practical choices like watches that are water and stress proof which can be worn during strenuous sporting activity.


Crystal and watches are not the only symbols of this anniversary. In fact, there are 3 gemstones associated with this tradition. They are Alexandrite, Garnet and Ruby. Hence if you find crystal and watches a boring idea, go in for jewelry. Keeping in mind rubies and garnets, the official color of this anniversary is red. Alexandrite changes color and can appear as red in the night.


The traditional flower of this anniversary is the rose. The rose symbolizes perfection, love and passion.


  • Toast each other with red wine in that crystal ware.
  • Go shopping for crystal clocks.
  • In a crystal box, keep a love poem, picture of you together and a small romantic note.
  • Plan to travel to a destination, connected to crystal and watches like Italy and Switzerland.
  • Renew your wedding vows: Go through the ceremony again in front of old and new friends and family. This is a chance to relive that event and incorporate all those details you wanted in your original wedding which you could not have.
  • Host a party with a glass theme. Hold the party in avenue with large, panoramic glass windows, greenhouse conservatories and patios. For added effect, include glass tables and crystal pieces. Don’t forget to get anniversary cakes delivered for the event.

These are some of the aspects about celebrating your 15th wedding anniversary.
