Celebrating 50 years of marriage is quite an impressive and important milestone! When it came time for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, I have to admit, it was tough to decide how to celebrate something so special. We thought we would go on a family trip to celebrate, or maybe a small family party and a bigger church reception...but, ultimately, my parents decided that they wanted to share the day with friends and family in one party. This was just days after Christmas and so the calendar was full. We almost waited too late to plan as we flip-flopped on just what to do! We finally settled on a coffee and dessert drop-in at a local restaurant that is known for its antique cars and airplanes. It was a fun day with so many family members and friends! The photos will make for a great family photo album as it captured friends from so many parts of a 50-year-marriage. I also wanted to share a few of the ideas we used to decorate and celebrate!
