5 Reasons to Celebrate


We have almost reached the end of January – gosh what a damp, grey month it  has been. We still have a way to go before Spring arrives, so thought we would cheer you up with 5 reasons to celebrate and plan some fun events.

5 Reasons to Celebrate

Everyone loves a celebration, and what better time to plan some than in the middle of winter? Here are some of our ideas:

  1. A Big Birthday. My Grandad is 70 this year, and my sisters are 21 and 18. They are pretty big birthdays! Mummy might plan a big party, or a special mini holiday to celebrate.
  2. Graduation Party. MeeMee will graduate from University this summer – what better way to celebrate than a wonderful meal on a fabulous boat in Bristol, where she is in Uni.
  3. Hen Party. Mummy would love to organise a Hen Experience for one of her friends – there are all sorts of ideas from Abseiling to Zorbing, or maybe wine tasting or a pamper day.
  4. Halloween Party. Mummy loves Halloween and would love to hold a big party. She would love one for the grown ups which she could make extra spooky.
  5. New Years Eve Party. It is a struggle to find anywhere near us that holds a New Years Eve party where children can go too. Every year Mummy says she will organise one herself. A fancy dress one would be awesome.

There are so many other reasons to celebrate throughout the year including Easter, Midsummers Eve, Bonfire Night and of course Christmas. Other events to celebrate are any birthdays, engagements, anniversaries, baby showers, christenings as well as any cultural or regional dates such as St Davids day for us here in Wales.

Have you any big celebrations coming up?

This is a collaborative post.

  18. Brilliant ideas, and congratulations to all on their milestones this year! There’s usually a celebration of some kind in the near future for anyone in the mood; it can be fun to try a new one sometimes, too.

  19. It looks like your family will have a year full of celebrations this year! I think I am going to have to plan a joint celebration this year as both my son and I have milestone birthdays at the end of the summer. I’m also hoping to plan a holiday this year as it has been 18 years since my husband and I have had one!

  20. Sounds like you have a super exciting year coming up! I’m turning 30 this summer so that’s our big celebration- well that and the fact that I’m finally getting to go to Disney World! Have a great year! xx

  21. Oooh sounds like you’ve got a lot to celebrate this year. I have not a lot planned for the year yet but we usually make a big deal out of Birthday’s in our family xo

  22. The only big celebrations we have this year are our 5 year wedding anniversary and normal birthdays. No biggies for us. That was all last year x

  23. I love a party for any occasion. It’s my mum’s birthday tomorrow.
