Plan a surprise 30th anniversary themed party complete with decorations, party supplies, invitations and of course party games. Throwing a themed anniversary party is makes wonderful surprise for the happy couple. Since the party is a surprise, it is not possible to ask the couple what type of party theme they would prefer. Hopefully, some knowledge on their likes and dislikes is known so an appropriate theme can be chosen.

Invitations: It is important to indicate somewhere on the invitations that this 30th anniversary party is indeed a surprise party. Establish a plan by calling guests and giving details on where and when everyone should meet. Select themed party invitations related to the party theme.

Themes: While the couple has been married for thirty years, they may still feel youthful. With that being said, just because the couple has been married for thirty years does not mean they want a traditional party. The numerous party themes to consider include a Luau, a decade theme, e.g., 50's, 60's, 70's, western, sci-fi, and Hollywood.

It is important to find a theme that means something to the couple. Does the couple love movies? Create a Hollywood movie theme party with movie posters, popcorn boxes, star balloons, Hollywood scene setters, and star lights.

Perhaps the couple loves the wild west. A western theme party is a great way to celebrate a 30th anniversary. Use various western scene setters, cowboys hats, inflatable cactus, wagon wheels, barrels, and pictures of famous cowboys. An easy party game in which all can participate is Horseshoes. Set up this game in an outdoor location with plenty of space.

"Who Was I Then?" is another popular party game. Have everyone bring a picture of themselves from their childhood or young adult years. Have everyone try to match the pictures from then with the people there.

A fun trivia game all can play is answering trivia questions on pop culture, music, sports and other events from the year the couple married. Write down a few questions and see how well the couple, and other guests can answer simple, yet challenging questions.

A surprise 30th anniversary themed party is a great way to gather family and friends and celebrate the couples life together. Plan a slideshow of the couple with various pictures over the years, share stories and have a fun time. Remember, keep the party a secret beforehand, to ensure that the memories created during the 30th anniversary party will last a lifetime for all who attend.
