My daughter added many creative DIY Pinterest ideas and we went with an outdoors Mexican themed party.
Anniversary Wishing Tree
Framed instructions encouraged guests to write an anniversary wish on a tag to hang on the Anniversary Wising Tree.
It was a family collaborative effort on Tex-Mex food and a special cake.
One of the biggest conversation pieces which unfortunately I did not get a photo of was my wedding dress with its train hung from the ceiling. It was in great condition considering how many years have gone by.
Keeping with the Mexican theme I bought a very large can of tomatoes, emptied it out (for a later recipe) and my landscaping sister (her business- Blooming Gardens) created many table floral centerpieces including this one.
This photo has particular significance. It's rare to get all seven of us together for a picture. Secondly, there used to be eight of us but sadly my other brother died a few years ago. He was always silly when we took family photos giving bunny ears to those standing near him . So we all did it one more time to remember Donny.
Last but not least, my brother Peter made this awesome DIY window picture frame with a collage of family photos. His inspiration -Nicole Curtis HGTV Rehab Show.
Indeed we were filled with love and gratitude sharing the day with friends and family.
