My husband, Kevin, graduated with this Master’s degree this year. To celebrate such a major accomplishment, I decided to throw him a surprise party.
I schemed with his parents who was hosting the graduation party in their home. After checking with each other, the only date in May that worked with both of our schedules was Mother’s Day. Oh no!
That was my initial reaction. But after thinking about it, I realized there is NO WAY he would see this surprise party coming.
A graduation party on Mother’s Day? Who would do that?!
Planning a surprise party on a holiday provides the perfect cover story.
The Perfect Cover Story
I simply told Kevin we needed to go to his parents’ house because for a Mother’s Day brunch. He easily believed it. I didn’t need to concoct some elaborate story to get him there.
Do you have people coming from out of town? They can say they’re coming into town for the holiday.
