Birthdays are a joyous and close to the heart occasion. Even the ones who say ”they don’t like to celebrate their birthday” secretly look forward to their big day. 

So what do you do to make the special day of a special one all the more special??? 

Well, you plan out a SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY. 

The most important part in planning a surprise birthday party is that it’s to be done in accordance with the likes and tastes of the person whose birthday it is. If the celebration is for your partner, then the task at hand becomes relatively simpler. 

In case you are an event planner or organizer not having any personal knowledge of the said person, you should stick to the basics of planning a party, the tried and tested ones, as have been mentioned below.

So, here are my Top 10 Surprise Birthday Places in Hyderabad

1. Home Sweet Home

As cliche as it sounds, a surprise party thrown in the company of intimate friends or family in the comforts of your home, can be an unexpected celebration. The familiarity of home and the personal touch along with a midnight cake, a meaningful birthday card and a handpicked gift, sets the tempo to pleasantly surprise the birthday guest. Alternately a date night like ambience can also be created with a romantic candle lit dinner, movie and all time favorite; popcorn to go with it.

2. Necklace Road

Take your birthday guest for a boat ride and watch the lighting show in the middle of the lake, a drive for an evening view or just sitting on the promenade and watching the beautiful sunset, this place is an ideal surprise spot. The numerous food joints around, take care of the hunger pangs as well.
