If someone close to you is celebrating a special milestone or event, marking the occasion is the perfect way to build lasting memories and of course, show them that you care. Event planning can be complicated for anyone, no matter how capable – after all, there are so many details to plan to give the event the ‘wow factor’. 

Whether it is your parents’ anniversary, or even your partner’s big birthday, celebrating the special milestone will allow you to look back fondly on the occasion and feel a sense of pride that your hard work paid off.

Host a party

What better way to celebrate an important event than by hosting a party?! This is the perfect option if you’re keen to celebrate with a large crowd. As part of the planning preparation, you’ll need to find a venue and consider the style of catering you’d prefer –  your decision will be highly reliant on your budget. 

There are various styles of parties to consider, depending on the atmosphere you’re hoping to achieve. Some ideas include: 

Before getting the plans underway, keep the individual you’re hosting for, in mind. If they would prefer something a little more low-key as opposed to an over-the-top celebration, aim for a more modest theme. 

Choose the right entertainment 

Entertainment plays a crucial role at any party. It encourages your guests to have fun with one another, and is sure to become a talking point of the event. Every party needs a distinguishing feature – whether it be a live band, photo booth, or sparklers. Due to the variety of options, your decisions should reflect the type of guests you’re planning to invite.

Give a special gift

Show your loved one you care, with a special gift. Whether it be a trip to the theatre, a city break, or even a piece of luxury jewelry such as a ring from Newman Bands – a thoughtful gift will serve as a lasting memento of the occasion. When searching for gift options, always consider the recipient’s individual interests, and chances are, you won’t go wrong. 

Surprise!

Not everyone is a fan of surprises, and if they’re not really a party-person, you could plan a surprise treat as a token of your love or friendship. This could be a weekend spa retreat, a romantic getaway, or even a night out with their closest friends. Think about what would mean the most to them, to help you come up with the best plan of action.


Regardless of the occasion, never let it pass by without acknowledgment. These moments are precious for looking back on and passing stories down the generations in the years to come. Marking an occasion could be as extravagant or as simple as you like – all that truly matters, is that you’re letting them share it with the people that matter the most.
