My grandmother and grandfather from Italy have been staying with my family here in the United States for the past six months. My grandmother is sick and is taking advantage of one of the best doctors in the world who specializes in her disease and who happens to be based at a hospital near my parents’ house. Of course, this is a stressful time for my family, especially for my grandfather. Not only is his wife very sick, but they have also both been transplanted to a foreign country where they know no one but us. My grandfather is a very social man, so I know it is very hard on him. Also, he has great love for his country – (he was not happy at all when my father decided to move to America).
Last week was my grandfather’s 78th birthday party. I really wanted to help make the day special for him so I thought I’d make it an Italian themed party. It goes without saying that the food would be all-Italian as would the music, but that’s just like any other Sunday dinner we have with the family only on a larger scale. I wanted something more. I went online and googled factory direct party supplies. A few clicks later, I was on this great party supply website boasting thousands of factory direct party supplies. And wouldn’t you know it? They had a selection of Italian themed party supplies! I couldn’t believe my luck! Real cute stuff too! I was able to get Italian flags for everyone to wave. I also got these cute centerpieces with the Italian flag colors. Also, there was this great banner proclaiming, “Viva Italia!” that I purchased as well. Plus, I was able to get invitations, an Italian music CD compilation, and these cute little Italian flag toothpicks for the appetizers and other finger food.
Upon first entering the basement and seeing all the Italian flags and colors all over the place, my grandfather grinned from ear to ear. It was the first genuine smile I had seen on his face in a really long time. He was very touched by my efforts to make him feel at home for his birthday. He thanked me over and over again. The party was a hit! I thank the factory direct party supplies I got to purchase from this special website. The whole process was hassle-free. I would buy again from the same site.
