30th Anniversary Shin Dig
My parents celebrated their 30th anniversary the other weekend. Here’s how it went down.
My sister and I set up a table with their wedding photos and albums. Guests were asked to bring their wedding albums. Working with a small budget, we purchased two bouquets of flowers from the grocery store and split them among 4-5 vases accented throughout the house.
Then, we asked each guest to bring an appetizer. They have some really amazing friends who were more than willing to whip up their favorite hors d’oevres. We provided simple things like cheese and crackers and chips and salsa. Oh, and the beverages, of course. My parent’s #1 rule of thumb when entertaining, “Make sure you know what your guests drink, and make sure you provide it.”
My dad also smoked a pork. I will give you the rundown of that luciousness at a later date. Pulled pork on small dinner rolls equals mini Southern sensational pork BBQ sliders. If you don’t own a smoker, try this Pork BBQ on for size.
Lastly, my brother’s GF brought wax lips because what’s an anniversary party without a little lip action?
Thanks for stopping in. What’s your rule of thumb when throwing a party? Got any good ideas? Shout ’em out.
