How an Affiliate Program Helped Me Plan a 50th Wedding Anniversary Party!

I've been so busy the past few months with a huge family project and haven't been spending much time updating my blog. But since part of the project ties in with one of my online income streams I wanted to share it here.

My husband and I, along with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law have been planning and organizing a 50th Surprise Anniversary Party for my in-laws. As far as we know it's still a "surprise"....we don't think they have a clue...close relatives have sworn to us that no one has slipped and let the cat out of the bag---yet. We've still got a week and a half to go so anything can happen between now and then.

The party is going to be in another state close to my in-laws and the majority of their family and friends, which just happens to be 500 miles away from us. My husband's aunt and uncle had secretly taken his parents wedding album and other old albums from their house while they were out of town so we could put together a slide show of the past 50 years of their lives. Thank goodness, they haven't noticed the albums were missing or else they probably would have reported it to the police and then we'd surely have a lot of explaining to do! Afterall, what kind of thief steals family photos and leaves the jewelry and TV behind??

I handled most all of the arrangements online or over the phone from 500 miles away. Very scary, I know! I booked a catering hall and DJ over the internet and I'm praying that all of the arrangements I've made without actually seeing or meeting with anyone in person will turn out to be as spectacular as expected. One thing I do know for sure is that the party favors I ordered online are as wonderful, if not more so, than I expected them to be.

I came across this party favor website while I was searching for affiliate programs to sign-up for at shareasale.com. (Funny thing was, we hadn't even thought of favors at that point and this jolted my brain into gear and I thought, "Holy Mess! We need to order favors for this party!") Shareasale.com partners with many websites that pay you for promoting their links and banners on your blog or other places on the web. Some of them pay you per click, per lead, or per sale. Just go to shareasale.com and browse the many affiliates in their network to see which ones would fit with your blog and sign-up. Free of course!

Anyway, back to the party favors. I ordered some really pretty glass picture frame coasters, 2 per set in a clear box tied with a white ribbon. We are putting a picture of my husbands parents on their wedding day in 1959 in one coaster and a recent pic of them taken a few months ago in the other one. I also ordered some custom printed stickers with their names and anniversary date to be placed on the clear boxes. I'm so pleased with how they turned out and can breathe a sigh of relief that this aspect of the party project is finally done!
