Small Newspaper's 10th Anniversary Party Ideas

Posted by ronabobey on 250 Points
I have been asked to be the event/party planner for a local - free Newspaper who is celebrating it's 10th Anniversary. The Party will take place in a backyard of a Deep Water Lot. The venue is beautiful and there is also a dock out too the water.
Need ideas of small gifts to give away. Themes and other ideas to make the event very special to loyal customers and employees and friends.
The paper is weekly, and we have decided to somehow showcase the 10 papers of the anniversary week somehow.
We want to also get some t-shirts and hats made, but want a smaller gift for each attendee.
Going to have beer, wine, a musician and food catered.

    If you know the names of the attendees, a custom printed newspaper front page with their name on it.

    The one thing that stands out to me is that the newspaper is weekly. You could do something around the day of the week it appears.

    You could also fold newspapers into the shape of boats to match the marine feel of your party - in fact you could do some origami with your newspapers! It is possible to do folds using rectangular paper - but it's harder.

    Boat people need technology .. "a smaller gift for each attendee", could be something digital, e.g. compass, measuring device or even a relevant prepaid "app". Maybe even have a boat technology theme.
