Surprises when successfully done provides an extra special feeling to both organizer and the subject. Self-fulfillment to the Organizer while extreme happiness to the subject (or should I say Euphoria).
Throwing a surprise is somehow hard to do, yet truly satisfying. Most especially when you are to devote it to someone you treasured in your life, like families, friends and to whom your heartbeat beats differently. To see the subject’s “tears of joy” is a proof that you successfully served its purpose. Surprises may and might be effective, so planning on it takes a deeper internalization to deliver perfect execution. Consider the following facts on planning your extraordinary surprise:
- Be secretive. As much as possible, keep it to yourself and to the people you decided to involve with. You need to act normal, do your everyday routine and don’t ever give the subject a clue that you are into a surprise project .
- Know the Subject. Touch your subject’s life by deeply grasping their wants and dreams. Then incorporate it in your plan. Like, when the subject’s favorite color is green, make it to a point to fill the place with green colors.
- Involve the Subject’s Key People. Invite the subject’s family, relatives, and closest friends. It will be more dramatic when the subject surrounds with the person he/she loved the most. But, don’t ever forget to tell them that its a surprise, so they are not allowed to spill it out in any way (Tell them to #shutupkanalang).
- Story line. Story line must be well plan and well known by the cast (I mean, the people you involved with) Story line provides the process on how the surprise will accordingly happen (the cast must be a good actor and actresses tho).
- Primary needs. Place, food, music, and design must be prepared strategically and of course ahead of time. Always remember to have a personal touch in all the primary needs: the subject’s favorite place, food, music and as much as possible DIY the designs (include the subject’s photos).
Above all, it’s the thought that counts. The moment you think of throwing a surprise to your special someone is what makes it overwhelming. So, don’t ever feel disappointed when the surprise didn’t work out the way it planned to be. Because in reality, there’s no perfect moment, it’s the love and effort that makes it perfect.
