Over the past weekend we hosted an anniversary party for my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary. My mother-in-law loves bright colors so naturally she decided she wanted to do a tropical theme, but without feeling too much like we just went to a party store and picked up everything in the “Hawaii” section. Imagine: plastic leis, grass skirts, blow up palm trees; I think you get the picture. She wanted a more sophisticated tropical. Hmm, a more sophisticated tropical.
