Deciding whom to invite is the first block to building a good party and it's one on which the entire construction can rise or fall. If possible consult the person to go over a guest list, but if it's a surprise party you'll need to decide on the guests. First you will need to decide on the appropriate invitations to fit the occasion, then decide if you will buy them, have them special

designed and made or make them yourself.
