we did a family portrait pic the sitting was £10.00 and then we got a package which in all was £100 but that was quite an expensive one as they had about 6 pics, I think the one for one pic was only about £20 as well as the £10.
don't think it would be rude to ask them to have a party in their house, could you perhaps do it as a surprise one? erm.. and food, well if u do value everything etc.. and iceland deals then it shouldn't be too much for 20 ppl. (could suggest drink a bottle or alternativly is htere family close who'd pitch in wiht the food?)
If you are trying to keep the cost down, what about buying a BIG photo frame and doing a montage of family photos? I did this for my dh's 40th birthday and he was (and still is) thrilled with it - it's on one of our kitchen wall - everyone who visits really like it.
Another idea - for my sister's 21st (about 12 years ago) I did a "This is Your Life" album - a chronological book of her life, with captions etc. She still treasures this.
love your idea puff...3 of my mums sisters live in england and 1 in canada so couldnt get whole family in, which I would have liked...will phone them all today and get them to send photos over and put it in a silver frame too!
thanks everyone for your input.. aunt said I might be able to have a family party at her house, and she would make up an excuse for them to come visit a few days before the anniversary, so it will remain a surprise party! (then i realised its my aunts 10th wedding anniversary today..felt bad for not getting her anything while making such a fuss over parents!)
