    • With the modern theme for this year's Anniversary being home there is no more obvious place to hold you party that in your own home.
    • However if this is not possible you could look at holding it in your Home town, which is perfect if you have a favorite place or restaurant.
    • Or if you have moved away you could look at holding your party in your old church hall, or wherever you all used to love to go.
