Your parents are important people; they gave birth to you, raised you, and made you into the adult you are today. The calendar provides two days per year to remember these duties- Mother’s and Father’s Day. But is that really enough to fully recognize everything they have done for you?
When you’re a child, a handwritten, macaroni-pasted card or ceramic flower pot is perfectly acceptable, but now that you’re grownup, don’t you want to do something really special? Well, now is the chance to make up for every temper-tantrum, poopy diaper, or hormonal hissy fit you have ever subjected your folks to… you can make it all up by throwing them an anniversary celebration party!
Picking the Venue
For big anniversaries, like anything ending in a “5” or “0”, you might as well go all out. These special occasions are the rare chance to commemorate a lifetime of commitment. With more and more marriages ending in divorce, your parents’ relationship is a beautiful example of what true loves really looks like.
Throwing a surprise party means you will want to host the anniversary celebration away from your parents’ house. You could ask a close family friend or relative, but Los Angeles banquet halls make for the most memorable venues. De Luxe Banquet Hall features catering, dance floor, ample seating, and exquisite décor. Your parents will feel like it is their wedding night all over again at this luxurious location.
Planning: Inviting Guests
This can be trickier than you’d imagine, especially for a surprise party. You want to keep the secret, but also make sure you invite all of your parents’ friends. What to do?
First of all, it is not bad to ask for help. Confide in a close family friend that you need help getting email and house addresses for everyone so that you can send out invitations.
Secondly, check your parent’s Facebook profile to see who they are friends with. You can easily send messages to everyone, insuring no one is left out of the loop.
Decorations and Food
Once again, this is a reason why booking Los Angeles banquet halls, like De Luxe, can actually be beneficial. Instead of doing all these things on your own, the staff members will help you each step of the way, from picking a menu and theme, to shopping and preparation, and finally to execution. While servers bring out trays of hors d’oeuvres, you can enjoy the amazed smiles of the two greatest people on earth: your mom and dad.
