Dad and Mom's 50th Anniversary

We had a nice family reunion this month in Arco.  It was Atomic Days weekend (the celebration of the anniversary of the first city to be lit by atomic power).  We thought that it would be a great opportunity to also celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary.

The planning of the party somehow fell to me, and I had a great time preparing decorations.  My siblings helped me execute the plan and it turned out beautifully.

I painted the mason jars with chalkboard paint and then wrote on them with a chalk marker.  I put wedding pictures into another mason jar and filled it with vegetable oil to give it it the golden look.

The guests signed into a Project Life book and could write some fun sentiments. I also created this "I have loved you for 50 years" and then printed it at kinkos and adhered it to foam board.

This digital print is now for sale in my Etsy Shop for only 99 cents!  It is an instant download that you can print at your local photo printer.  There are digital prints available for all milestone anniversaries, including 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, and 75.

Note: I updated the numbers to reflect leap years for a more accurate print.

New to my Etsy shoppe is this matching 50 Anniversary banner!  Print on cardstock and embellish as you wish to create a beautiful sentiment.  Finished banner is approximately 5 feet (60 inches) long.

 I created a doilie banner with pictures of them and their names.

The cake was made by Amy Bogart, a family friend.  It was delicious.  I also glittered some paper mache numbers I got from Hobby Lobby.

Happy 50th Anniversary mom and dad!  We love you so much!  Congratulations!
