Delegate, delegate, delegate. Micromanaging will backfire. Parents love being involved, so take advantage of their enthusiasm.
Choose a reliable florist with great contacts so the pink hydrangeas you jet in don’t arrive a shade of muddy brown.

Communicate regularly with your parents. No matter how westernised you think they are, there’s a good chance they will be disappointed if you decide on a colour scheme traditionally reserved for funerals.
