Today's soiree is a very special one. One of my best friends gave her fabulous parents a surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary party 2 weeks ago and I had the pleasure and honor in helping! The celebration was held at one of the fairly new hospitals in the area...they have an Education Center that has a terrific space for parties, meetings and such.
*Warning: lots of photos ahead!*
There were 3 'vignettes' down the all before the room that we set up.
Small Welcome Table
Yep! That's my chalkboard stand! That sucker is so useful!
Leave a Sentiment Buffet
There was a place to hang a picture of the couple already so I took full advantage of that!. My friend had purchased the amazing stars from Pier 1 a year ago! The candle holder I just happened to find at Kirkland's on sale for $13!! We used 2! And I made the sign-in sign with papers my friend got at Hobby Lobby.☺
Memory Lane Counter
I arranged the photos while my friend put all 7 stars together!
The flower arrangements were provided as part of the room rental. I believe my friend added the candles and just simply scattered sepia tone photos of the couple on each table. Simple and fun!
(Sorry for the darkness! I'm by no means a professional!)
Bride and Groom figurine is a family heirloom!
Money saving tip: do a small special cake for the couple and then do a simple sheet cake to feed guests.
So glad I got this shot! These are extremely wonderful people! Very down to earth, hard working, love the Lord good people. What an awesome example of love and devotion!
They were happily surprised and the evening was lovely.
My friend did a fabulous job planning!
It was so fun to help!
Happy Soiree Day!
