Throwing the Party of the Lifetime (Literally!)

For two years I have been planning on throwing an epic “Decades Party” because so many loved ones in my family were born ten years apart.  This was the year to celebrate all my family members born in 1949, 1959, 1969, 1979, 1989, 1999, and 2009! What a great opportunity to get everyone together to celebrate life and love.

Last year we collaborated with the Odyssey and set off on a memorable lunch cruise.  After seeing the Amethyst Deck, I set my sights on Lake Michigan for the party.  Coordinating the details of the event was easy thanks to my events coordinator. As far as cost goes, the brunch cruise is a great deal for what you get – good food, amazing service, and the best view of the city from the water.

We ordered 5” cakes for each birthday which made for a fun centerpiece to the room.  I also ordered these printouts from Etsy along with these buttons.  Between all that and the décor of the room itself, it was a really beautiful celebration. 

Since time truly is the greatest gift, there was no better way for us to spend time together than on the Odyssey! No stress, no planning, no cleanup- it was a dream!

A very special thank you to the Odyssey staff for making this special occasion so memorable. We will be back!
