50th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY PARTY

Celebrating 50 years of marriage is quite an impressive and important milestone!  When it came time for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, I have to admit, it was tough to decide how to celebrate something so special.  We thought we would go on a family trip to celebrate, or maybe a small family party and a bigger church reception...but, ultimately, my parents decided that they wanted to share the day with friends and family in one party.  This was just days after Christmas and so the calendar was full.  We almost waited too late to plan as we flip-flopped on just what to do! We finally settled on a coffee and dessert drop-in at a local restaurant that is known for its antique cars and airplanes.  It was a fun day with so many family members and friends! The photos will make for a great family photo album as it captured friends from so many parts of a 50-year-marriage. I also wanted to share a few of the ideas we used to decorate and celebrate!

FASHIONABLE {DESSERT} PHOTO SHOOT

There is something special about dressing up and dishing out desserts for the kiddos for Valentine's Day!  Shaundra, of Cherished Affairs, shares a beautiful dessert table with us that she styled for a Valentine photography party.  Desserts were served while each guest had their fashion photo shoot with fabulous photographer Danielle McCann.  Perfect to adapt for teens and tweens and also for a grown-up girls-night-out or daytime luncheon, this party is fashionable and fun!

PEACHY-KEEN PARTY

e the Peach theme for a party for a birthday girl of any age-  it is perfect for a first birthday and equally perfect for an 80th birthday!  And, that is just the theme Lauren, of Capes and Crowns, used to celebrate her grandmother's 80th birthday!  Lauren added pin-up posters to the theme to tie in the popular pin-ups of her grandmother's earlier years- and to recognize how beautiful her grandmother is!  It really is just peachy!

HAVING A BALL OF A BIRTHDAY

I love parties with sweet sentiment, and this party is overflowing with it!  Gretchen, of Three Monkeys Studio, hosted this party for her grandmother in honor of her grandmother's 90th birthday!  Now, that is something to celebrate!  I was also touched by the fact that Gretchen said she was inspired by the party I threw for my mom's birthday!  How sweet!  This is one special party for one special (and very loved) lovely lady!
