dance. Is it a welcome-back-to-school dance in the fall, a winter
holiday dance or a spring fling? Does the dance have a specific theme

Centerpieces can range from simple and inexpensive to complex and
exotic. Either way, they will set the tone for an exciting
dance.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Things You'll Need

Bouncers are the security personnel at clubs, bars and concerts. They
are there to assure that partygoers act responsibly, which can be a
chore anywhere that alcohol is served. They also filter out people at
the door. If a person is not dressed to the standards of the club or
appears to already be intoxicated, the bouncer may not allow him
inside. A few good tips can mean the difference between standing out
in the cold and getting your groove on. Arrive EarlyIf you aren't
very lucky with the bouncers when you go out, you should always arrive
early. If the club opens at 10, arrive at the door no later than 10:30
if you want a better chance of getting in. The bouncers are instructed

A 50th wedding anniversary is such an achievement of love and
marriage, the couple deserves a celebration to commemorate it. Instead
of a dinner to spend two or three hours with friends and family,

A banquet is an important event, whatever the occasion is. It keeps
the community together. It marks an occasion. It celebrates life,
present or past. A banquet depends on its emcee. The attendees need
