50 years of marriage is quite an accomplishment! After a Google inquiry, I learned that only 6% of marriages last 50 years! We recently celebrated my In-Laws 50th wedding anniversary by hosting an afternoon open house gathering. I created a festive environment filled with framed pictures from their wedding. I purchased the frames at The Dollar Tree!!!
I used glass blocks as risers and white tulle to fancy up the “shrine” of pictures on the counter. I used their original wedding book for guests to sign in and framed a poem about “A Golden Anniversary” that was found in my Grandmother’s poem book.
I placed green tulle down the center of the tables, with vases full of fresh flowers.
Using boxes that I covered with a white table cloth, I created risers on the food table. I covered the lifted area with silver tulle, and put a vase full of flowers and pictures on top.
Lastly, I hung white tissue paper balls over the dessert counter. Simple, yet elegant.
I hope you get the chance to celebrate a loved ones 50th wedding anniversary! Be sure to impress upon them how special the accomplishment is!!!
