Fifty years ago
The anniversary couple.
The table decor. (My mother-in-law used gladiolas and magnolia leaves at her wedding, so we used those in the center pieces on the tables.)
The food. Fruit with a fruit dip, a cheese ball, a hot chicken dip, mom-in-law's favorite punch and ice water were served.
The photo table. There were scrapbook "guestbook" pages made by yours truly, for the guests to sign, a box for cards from guests, beloved family photos, a bouquet for the couple from my brother-in-law and family, and her wedding dress, which she made. The wedding dress was pink, so that is where I got the color scheme for the party. I went with her dress and flower color rather than Las Vegas gold.
What's a party without a party favor. These were handmade by a friend for the big day. Cute, huh?
The family took pictures on Saturday. Here is my favorite of the anniversary couple.
This is my favorite. My hubby, being the student minister that he is, insisted we take a "silly" pose. I love it!
Well, it was a busy weekend for sure, but a lot of fun. There was a huge turnout and Grandma and Papa enjoyed their big day.
Hope you had a GREAT summer. My kiddos go back to school this Thursday, so summer is officially over. We've bought school supplies, signed up for the upcoming soccer season and shopped for first day of school outfits... YEP! Summer is over. :( Did I tell you my son is in middle school this year? 6th grade. A new kind of chaos is about to begin...
Have a great week, friends. I'm going to try and find the time to stop by and say "hello."
