An Anniversary Party for Our Parents

My parents celebrated 50 years of marriage last month. My brothers and I wanted to do something really special for them because that is just something not very common anymore. We decided to throw them a surprise anniversary celebration and invited all of their friends as well as all of our family. That meant we had nearly 100 people who were invited, but the number actually grew to 120 by the time we were done. I was tasked with finding some quality party entertainment while my older brother handled the decorations with his wife and my younger brother and his wife took care of the food.

I was excited to handle the entertainment because I knew exactly where I was going to turn for help. There is a company that provides all kinds of entertainment options ranging from singers and dancers to magicians, comedians, and artists, with so many different options in between! I knew that we definitely wanted to have a band there because our parents love to listen to music and they still dance at least once a week. I was happy to be able to get a band that plays mainly songs from their era, and I knew that they were going to be excited to hear all the different songs.

I also wanted something fun for the people who did not like to dance. There would be games and lots of food, but I wanted something interactive. I decided to go with a couple of magicians who went from table to table and performed neat tricks for everyone. The kids really got excited over this, but quite a few of the tricks left us adults wondering how they were done too. The party was a huge success, and everyone had the best time. We are looking forward to the next anniversary party now!
