For the Love of Flowers

This past weekend we had a wonderful time celebrating my grandparents


 60th wedding anniversary.


Seriously, I had no idea what an accomplishment that was until I went perusing stores for anything "happy 60th" - No. Luck. At. All. So then I went to Etsy to see what all I would miss (due to shipping and the party being a few days away...) and only ONE page came up. 38 results for "60th anniversary" - most of which were customizable items that didn't even have 60 on them in the picture..... If someone is looking for a part time hobby, start cranking out the 60-ness! However...



I am blessed to have such a wonderful example of affection and communication. I cherish my time with them.



Our dear friends, Kim & Dottie, helped make the day even more special by arranging several pieces. And, I must say, they were absolutely stunning! They have started a company called: "For the Love of Flowers" and specialize in weddings, events, and any floral decorating needs.









If you remember the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, 60 is represented by the Diamond. So, I (of course loving anything that sparkles) had to have lovely fake diamonds thrown across the table and candles. LOTS of candles!


























I absolutely LOVED these arrangements, so much they are sitting on our table (dying...) along with the diamonds. We don't like parties to end in our home!

We had a delightful lunch of: beef tenderloin, green beans, and mashed potatoes. Followed by various cakes from Athens, GA brought by my Aunt Jill! They were to die for! Cecelia's, if you must know! I can't wait to show you the rest of the photos from the happy day.



XOXO,
