My aunty, my two sisters and I decided to throw a surprise 40th Anniversary Party for my amazing parents. My parents are very stable, loving, giving people and they have had a very beautiful life.....but they never had a wedding reception, through no fault of their own.
So we tried to recreate that. Here are some pictures:
|My friend Kelly and I got together and used her awesome skills for screen printing the table runners|
|Using Kale (from the cabbage family) for the floral arrangements|
|Table numbers in distressed frames (they didn't look too distressed, quite happy actually)|
|Odd tea cup candles made by my beautiful 10year old owl. All cups were op shopped (with a little help from my fellow friend op shoppers)|
|A Singapore orchid and Moss arrangement|
And this is how it looked:
|The beautiful chocolate mud cake|
What we wore:
|Mr Owl and also the MC. Sharp!|
|I ran out of time to make my dress so this was a last minute purchase from ebay. Attempting to pull of peach and red.|
My parents were shocked:
It was a beautiful night- one that my sisters, my aunty and I put a lot of effort in. I will never forget it.
Much has gone on since. Stay tuned for a tale of two cases:
