Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on December 2nd. My brother flew in and we planned a small dinner party for them with family and friends.
My Dad took a picture of their wedding cake to the bakery and they recreated a smaller version for the occasion. It came out great. My mom noticed right away and was very touched. Did I mention it was also delicious?!
My brother and I (Yup, he is practicing for his daughter's wedding next year!) made centerpieces for the table using large mason jars and fresh flowers and evergreens. My mom carried a large bouquet of white mums and roses on her wedding day. Her bridesmaids carried white carnations. We distressed some tags and added photocopied pics from the wedding day. We tied them on with a gold shear ribbon. She loved them!
Jack surprised us all with a toast to his grandparents, "To Grandmom and Pop Pop, this has been a long time coming." lol That kid is a piece of work.
Congrats, Mom and Dad. As I said in my toast, "Thank you for setting such a great example for the rest of us to follow." xoxo
