Last week, my parents celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary.
We celebrated the happy occasion with a lovely cocktail party last weekend with family and friends. As it was their golden anniversary, the theme was gold.
Mum and I made the invitations….
and Mum made all the flower centrepieces, which were arranged on mirror tiles, with some scattered gold and white hearts on the tables.
We made up chocolate Bride and Groom boxes as party favours. I used the Cricut Tie the Knot cartridge for the boxes, and then embossed the dresses with the Cuttlebug. Mum assembled all the boxes and added the ribbon and pearls.
Mum ordered the cake from Sugar and Spice. They printed one of their wedding photos on a layer of fondant for the top of the cake (white chocolate mud cake) – it was delicious.
Mum’s wedding dress was on display. My sister and I used to love trying her dress on when we were kids.
It was a wonderful party and we all thoroughly enjoyed helping them celebrate such a special milestone.
Congratulations Mum and Dad – you are truly an inspiration to all the family.
