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.
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.
