I'm struggling between a few concepts. I will be graduating from college (after a long and crazy six years) and my husband WANTS me to have a graduation party. He doesn't care where it is as long as it is nicely put together. Where I live there is not much to choose from unless you want to pay through your nose. We have it narrowed down to our church or the world famous Ice Cream Parlor in the ice cream capital of the word (cringing...yes, our town is famous for ice cream). Our church is in my husband's home town which is about twenty-five miles away, which is not big deal since we go every Sunday. The church can seat about two hundred people in the basement. I was thinking about doing family pictures at the alter (my dad's side does this for special occasions and they look very nice!) The ice cream parlor is limited to a certain amount of people and has many requirements. The last option is our house, but we live on a cul-de-sac, so parking my be an issue, plus the only room to have the party would be our basement.
Second item on the agenda, he wants to serve a sit down meal. That's means everyone has to be there at a certain time, and I can see the plus and the negative of that. I have been between colors, themes, and all of that other junk, but I need help on the location and if it should be a sit down or not! What advice do you ladies have? I am horrible with making up my mind, so any suggestions would be awesome!
