So I just pulled off a surprise 40th birthday party for a friend last night.
Me and two other girlfriends were in this together; we took our friend to dinner while the party was being set up. After dinner our friend received an "emergency" call to get to the location of the party "right away".
When she opened the door and saw the group of people, she closed it right away, turned around to us in utter shock; she had bought the whole act!! It was sweet!
So, have you ever planned a surprise party and actually had it work?
