I married the man of my dreams! It hardly seems possible that we have made it to our silver anniversary. That is for old people. And after 25 long, memorable years, are you wondering how we celebrated? Not only is Rick sick (with a fever and chills and cold) but he is also in Texas at SimCom, renewing his pilot training. I’m at home with our four lovely children. Big celebration, right? Wrong.
However, we did throw a shindig last Saturday, that beat the band! I’ve been dreaming of decorating for a party for a few years now…. all shabby chic, bird cages, vintage books, roses, old picture frames and lace. Pinterest has held my interest in this avenue for quite some time now. All my decorating dreams came true for our 25th celebration. Here is my photo tribute to Rickey, my knight in shining armor, who tore up the dance floor and didn’t mind all the fru-fru in the house.
The Love Birds name tag table on the front porch. I love birdies.
Here was our guest book table and my wedding dress…. 25 years later.
These were the thank you gift bags that my friend Ginny made. They were darling. We put nuts in the bags and the tags said “Still nuts about each other after 25 years!” See, corny! But it made us laugh!
Another friend of mine, Darla, helped me assemble the largest collection of pink, white and brown edible delicacies this side of the Mississippi. It was a sugar-loving haven.
We displayed the dress my mother wore to the wedding as well as my banana-yellow going-away suit. :o)
The party was such fun! Yes, I’m saving all the decorations for the next family wedding, or baby shower, or birthday, or retirement party, etc.
