My daughter waited until the last minute to give her input on her 6th birthday party. We begged her to make up her mind. Would you like to go bowling? To the beach? To the trampoline place? No. No. No. Her birthday was soon upon us and I needed to get on with the rest of our lives. So, I suggested to my husband that we take matters into our own hands. If we beat her to the punch and plan a surprise party for her, we no longer have to wait for her to make up her mind. We planned it a week early so that it would catch her off guard. An evite alerted all parents that this was a surprise so please keep a secret from the invites if they can't keep it quiet, or let them know to not tell the guest of honor.
The party was a huge hit. Her friends loved hiding and yelling "Surprise!"
