Here are some pictures from the SURPRISE 25th Wedding Anniversary Party that our children threw for us. It really was a big surprise!!! The girls let me in on the secret that morning for 2 reasons; 1. I don’t take surprises well and 2. I was suppose to be baking wedding cake for 150 people that day. Nothing like filling every moment of the day with activity!
Emma did an excellent job with the decorations in our pavilion.
The lights were enchanting!
She even sprinkled silver glitter all over the concrete floor
and on the stone walkway to the house.
She strung back and white pictures of us that Olivia took on our anniversary,
that is what is hanging.
Josh was home for a few days and he kept us served all evening.
Olivia made a BUNCH of wonderful, delicious food!
There was beautiful, classical music playing softly in the background.
Stuffed Mushroom Bites,
Cucumber w/ Dill Cream
Shrimp, Mini Toast w/ Chicken Salad
Baked Brie and Apricot Preserves
Several cheeses, crackers, fruits
Baguette w/ herbed butter
Mini Caprese Salad Hor’ Dourves
Parmesan Sourdough Loaf
Did I mention the food was delicious?!
But the best part…
was that they invited 4 other couples that are our closest friends.
They blessed us with an evening of pleasant conversation and sentimental toasts!
I have to say, there are no words to express how it feels when your children rise up and call you blessed!
