Don’t get us wrong, having Cirque du Soleil-style aerialists descend from the ceiling between the salad and dinner course is definitely over-the-top. But we love the idea of totally shocking guests with an unexpected detail whether it’s having a fireworks show or hiring a donkey to serve drinks at cocktail hour.
