Last weekend our family celebrated
a very special event!
50th Wedding Anniversary!
Isn't this the cutest invitation?
Well...probably because they were
just the CUTEST couple!!
We transformed dad's barn into a little something special!
A little elbow grease and quite a bit of painted plywood
and paper lanterns transformed the shop into
something quite special!
The weather even cooperated and the tent was pleasant to sit in!
Mom's colors were turquoise and pink so we got
turquoise table sashes to put down the tables
and added LOTS of paper doilies
(because mom LOVES doilies...almost as much as she loves pillows lol!)
Peonies, Roses, Hydrangeas & Succulents...
need we say more???
Well...we will say that we've been collecting a LOT of
Hobnail Milk Glass and it was
We had printed off all of her pictures from
mom & dad's wedding album...
and put them in either gold or black frames
to sit on the table with the flowers
These little succulents were just darling...
we had to share another picture!
We also used a lot of bedding plants in shades of pink
to line the tables with...
that way we could use them in mom's outdoor pots after the party!
One of the "HITS" of the party was the life-size cutout
of mom and dad's wedding picture...aren't they adorable?
They had their picture taken with people ALL night long!
On the table in front of them,
they honored their parents with their pictures...
Up top is mom's dad Billy and her mom Norma,
next is Dad's mom Betty and dad Paul,
next is mom's stepdad Harmon with her mom Norma.
The picture up front is this one with their parents.
Keeping with the hobnail theme...
mom wanted her cake to look like hobnail as well...
and it was too cute especially sitting on
that milk glass ruffled plate!
There were tons of beautiful cupcakes!
Vanilla, Chocolate & Carrot Cake...
In fact....it was the
never-ending tower of cupcakes...
there were a LOT of cupcakes eaten that night!
Although they did cut their cake...there was no feeding each other
pieces of cake...per mom!!!
Another fun spot was dad's request to have the
Hornet + 3
or "MQF" ~ NASA's Mobile Quarantine Facility
so that everyone would be able to:
1. Learn a little Airstream History
2. Have fun taking pictures in it!
This was a pretty popular spot that night...
We couldn't even begin to tell you
how many people
wanted their picture in the Airstream!
That evening was a great memory maker...for sure!
Everyone had a blast...and to remember the night
we had a guest book made up for everyone
to give their good wishes in...
it had all of their pictures from their wedding in it,
so it will make a wonderful keepsake for mom & dad!
Thanks for visiting...and sharing in our
