Plan your entire surprise ahead of time. Pre-arrange everything from the menu, the activity and the reveal to be sure everything checks out. Be sure your birthday surprise plans will not conflict with something he would normally do regardless of the day, such as a mandatory late-night meeting at work.
Be secretive in your mission to set up logistics so you don't spoil the fun. Make special arrangements and orders at a time and location that is out of his eyesight and earshot. Ask vendors such as a caterer or baker to call you on your cell phone and not your home line for questions and confirmations.
Pick a location and activity for your surprise. Plan to host an intimate dinner at home or spend a night on the town. Create a dummy plan for him, such as planning to go to dinner with friends or having a fun family night doing something pretty generic. Let him think that whatever you'll have planned will be something pretty predictable.
Lead up to the main event by creating small surprises. Start the day by giving him a note wishing him a happy birthday. Check on him during the day to be sure he doesn't have any emergencies that might permit him from getting home on time.
Plan a scavenger hunt for him when he arrives at home. Leave a note on the door with a note that says, "Surprise, change of plans. Tonight it's just me and you." Give directions for him to go to another location in the house for the next note. Accompany the note with a small gift like a bottle of cologne or a new watch.
Give him two or three more clues that lead up to him finding you where you either have a meal prepared by candlelight while you're dressed in sexy lingerie and robe or to meet you outside where a limousine pulls up to take you out for the night.
Use the clues to lead him to do something you want him to do, such as change clothes or meet you somewhere special. Make sure the clues and directions are short and simple so that he doesn't get confused or bored. Enjoy your time alone with your honey finishing up your surprise with a sensual massage or dessert in bed.
