Party Ideas.

My mom and dad will be married 35 years on Monday. I want to have them a little surprise get together with only about 10 people (12 including them) next Thursday (my dad isn't going to have a day off from work until then). I truthfully can only afford to spend maybe $40ish. I know that's not a lot but my husband and I are really low on cash right now. Anyway I know I definitely want to get them a cake. I'm not necessarily against making one myself, but I'm not the best at decorating cakes and I really want something that looks nice. I'm willing to make that my big splurge is necessary by buying a nice sheet cake somewhere. I even thought about getting one of those cakes with their photo on it, but I'm unsure of the cost there. I'm not really worried about decorations, but I mostly need ideas of cake, cheap punches, small snacks, anything like that. My other issue, and this isn't necessarily a poor skill so I can edit this out if the mods want, is that I don't know how to get them out of the house in order to get the guests there and get things ready. I thought about sending them out for dinner and then getting everything ready and just having cake and punch, but I can't afford to pay for their dinner too and they aren't already planning to go out anywhere that evening that I know of. Anyone have any suggestions or ideas they have successfully used in the past? Thanks guys :)
