Birthday

Birthdays usually include a party or gathering to celebrate the life of the person whose birthday it is.  Although having a party is not a necessity for birthdays, we will be going over the steps involved when deciding to have one.

Planning and Invites

The first thing you will want to do is plan a date to have the party.  It does not need to be exactly on the date of the actual birth of the person the party is for.  If the person's birthday falls on a Tuesday you can very well have the party on Saturday if it's more convenient.  A birthday party can be a surprise, it can be at a special place, or it can happen simply at home. Coming up with a guest list and sending out invitations would be the next step.  Below we will look at possible questions involved with the planning of a birthday party.

"My birthday this year is on a Monday.  Should I have the party on a Saturday instead?"
"Should we have a surprise birthday party?"
"Who do I invite?"
"What's the best way to send out invitations?"
"Should we have people RSVP?  RSVP means 'Please respond.' You are asking people to let you know if they are attending beforehand so you can plan ahead."

"Should we reserve a room for the party?"
"Where should we get a cake?"

If you are asked any of these questions, here are ways that you could respond.

"I would have the party on Saturday then more people might be able to come."
"It does not really matter, have it whenever you like."

"He does not like surprises so I would just do a regular party."
"A surprise party would be fun, just make sure he does not find out."

"I would just invite family since it's a small party."
"You could invite friends and family.  Make it a big party this year."

"You could just pass out invites when you see the people."
"I would mail them since it is a surprise party."

"I would have people RSVP so you will know how many people are coming."
"Having people RSVP lets you plan the party easier."

"I would reserve a room so no one else is using it."
"They require a reservation so they can plan ahead for your party."

"We should get a cake at the bakery."
"We should get an ice cream cake from the ice cream store."
