The Task of Turning a Field Into a Party Venue

Though it might be difficult to visualise an outdoor event at this time of year, I am in the middle of planning one for next May. It is one of those cases where you think in retrospect, you should have been careful what you wished for, because the venue is a bare field. I wanted a blank canvas to plan this party, and I got one. The laundry list of things to do covers everything from need generator hire to line up string quartet.

It is quite exciting to know that the final design will have been due 100 percent to my efforts. On the other hand, it is scary to think that if I do not plan properly for things I know nothing about, like that generator, the lights, the music and the whole kit and caboodle will fall flat on its face. But, with each new task I check off the to do list, the more comfortable I become with this duty.

Since this is my parent’s fortieth wedding anniversary, I want everything to be just perfect. And because they both love nature nearly as much as they care for each other, this party could take place nowhere other than outside. So this will definitely be a test of my planning and organisational skills, but they are definitely worth it.
