After traveling around Asia for years, I noticed that people there are more creative and can more easily put on a special birthday party.
I think that Westerners have become a bit boring when it comes to these things.
In Asia, they take care of the details and appreciate more things that may be simple but still important.
Would you like to put on a special birthday for your couple or a friend that they will remember forever?
And for little money?
Spend a lot if you want – it is up to you.
I will give you a great idea for a birthday party. I will show how to do it step by step, and I will use a real example.
What Do We Need?
–Three or four gifts.
The gifts don’t have to be expensive. In fact, I would recommend that they not be expensive.
Anyway, it’s totally down to your budget.
This is the minimum that we need. From here you can add more decorations. Personally, I think that the balloons are enough and help the person to focus on the party.
In my case, I chose a flower, a Buddha figure, pillowcases with hearts, and a photo mosaic of the person and me.
I consider the last of these the best gift you can give. It is also something that will make the other person remember the good time you have had.
Also, the person will keep it in his or her room.
How To Prepare The Birthday Party?
The key is to put lots of balloons everywhere. Only some will be attached to a gift.
You need to tie a balloon to each gift and leave it in such a way that the gift is hidden.
For example, you could put it behind the curtain, under a pillow, inside a drawer, etc., so the person sees only the balloon, not the gift.
Try to arrange it in such a way that the least important gift is the first to be found, and the best gift, the last.
The most important thing is that the person finds the best gift last. Like a good story, the end is extremely important.
Another important matter is that the “party” should be a surprise. This way, you will multiply the effect of the gifts. When you’re expecting something, it’s never as good.
The person will feel they are living an adventure.
Happy Birthday My Love
Create a playlist with different versions of “Happy Birthday”.
I recommend Whitney Houston’s and Mariah Carey’s versions.
There are some great songs out there.
You can also add songs that are important for both of you.
When the person opens the door, start the music.
It should last more than 20 minutes – long enough for the person to find all the gifts.
Here, you can see a screenshot of my playlist.
Make a Video of The Event
Nowadays you can make a good-quality video with your own mobile. It will be an unforgettable experience.
Start recording when the person enters the room and continue until they have discovered all the gifts.
The key to all this is that the person takes part in the event. It’s not only about getting the gifts.
Do you know why?
Because you will create an amazing birthday that will be an emotional experience, and the person will remember it forever.
You can make small changes to adapt it to your personal taste.
I invite you to create your own parties.
