Planning the summer birthday surprise party and still want to give a gift? Send your friend the All Wrapped Up Red Flower Arrangement! Nothing says "happy birthday" like this arrangement does. Designed to imitate a real gift box, this arrangement has beautiful red roses, carnations and hypericum. The birthday girl is sure to love it, and it could even double as a stunning centerpiece for the surprise party that all your guests will admire.

It's time to send out invitations! When creating the invitations, stick to the theme you have chosen, you will want to incorporate the theme into as much as you can, but particularly on the invitation so guests will know how to dress. Since this is a summer birthday surprise party, be sure to make it clear on the invitations that it is a surprise party and emphasize the importance of arriving on time so as not to spoil the surprise. Make sure to also tell everyone to keep it a secret.

Arguably, one of the most important parts to a party is the food. Try to incorporate the theme into the presentation of the food, whether that be the table cloth, napkins, plates, or in the food itself. As for the cake or desserts, get a design that fits the theme. That could be that the cake is airbrushed with a design or the cupcakes have those plastic superhero rings in the icing. The most important part when choosing what food to offer and what flavor cake, is to first think of the person you are throwing the summer birthday surprise party for, and next, think of the guests. Try to pick their favorite foods, while also putting a menu together that the guests will want to eat.
