IELTS Speaking topic: A family celebration

Describe a family celebration (such as wedding) that you attended.
You should say:
when and where this celebration was held
what you did in this celebration
who was there
and explain why this celebration was held.

The last time we celebrated was in the National Day when it came to my son’s birthday, on October 3rd. We threw a party to celebrate his 4-year-old birthday, and all of our relatives in Beijing took a part in the celebration.

This meal was really a big banquet. We booked a room in a restaurant and decorated it with some flowers and balloons hanging on the wall. Then we prepared a big birthday cake and some other tasty foods like salads, biscuits and fruit juice. Besides as for adults we had some delicacies like Gong Bao Chicken, Simmer Meat, Roasted Duck. And we had noodles as our staple food because in China, long noodles are traditionally eaten by person celebrating his birthday.

I invited all my relatives to come to dinner mainly because I wanted to strengthen the family bonding between us. Besides, it was a desirable opportunity to teach son how to share his happiness and especially, how to interact with others. On top of that, admittedly, we just would like to sit down together and enjoy the tasty food.
