The least pushy method, is simply to bring it up in conversation as small talk

"Got any plans for the weekend?"
"Cycling trip, what about you?"
"Going out for my birthday"

I cut this conversation down massively just for the example, but the gist is that you don't have to make a big deal of it, bringing balloons or doughnuts, or bringing it up out of nowhere, just start some small talk and make it your answer to the topic. The aim is to sound natural, like as if you just thought of mentioning it, otherwise, you can seem eager or childish.
