Happy Anniversary!!

I have been so busy planning my parents 25th anniversary party I haven't had much time for anything else. The party was this last Saturday so I am know getting around to getting the pictures up of the party. I had alot of fun making everything. But it sure kicked my but. I hope you enjoy.

This was the table that I put the party favors and the cake. My sister in law made the cake sure was a big help and took alot off my shoulders not having to worry about it. Had a Happy 25th Anniversary banner made to put above the table. Their was only a few touches of black and it really help set off the decorations.
These were gray and white straws made flags to put on them said happy anniversary on one side and 25 years together on the other. Such a simple and cute added touch. The rosette is one I put together with fun stuff I found on clearance at Micheals Crafts.
Made these cute rosettes with black, white and silver paper and a fun stamp I got at Hobby Lobby that has interchangeable letters to spell out K I S S E S.... Put some Hershey Kisses in a nice crystal bowl for the quests to take home.
These are the party favors I put together had white jordan almonds and Hershey Kisses in the boxes with fun tags that said Celebrating 25 years Waldo & Kenra. I made the 35 year banner with white and silver paper and the 25 years was printed on velum that I found at a little craft store.
Got this Love box for people to put their cards in for my parents at Hobby Lobby the box was 50% off who couldn't pass up that deal. I had some fun anniversary glitter, and white and black rocks that I put everywhere on the tables for some added touch and color.

These are more rosettes that I put together from stuff I found on clearance at Micheal's. I had a few of these I was able to put together and able to place in different spots at the party.

I designed the center piece and called a local Balloon company here in Salt Lake, Balloon Bonanza and told them what I wanted. They came about 2 hours early and set up the balloons. They turned out so amazing they really did an awesome job.
More pics of the tables and also a picture of my dads chair. Had some fun banners made that said MR. & Mrs. to put on their chairs. Just another fun added touch.
On the bar I put their pictures in silver frames had fun anniversary glitter and white rocks spread through out the bar. I made 4 of these ball toparies they took forever to make but really added to all the deocorations.

Here is a close up of the toparies I thought my fingers were going to be raw by the time I was done. I used 2 different types of tulle material to make them, added some small sweet white flowers, fun pearls and silver and crystal gems. They turned out beautiful.

Here is a picture of my parents before they cut the cake. What an amazing party. I had a speech I tried to read but I am such a ball baby I couldn't get through it. Here is a copy of my speech, that pretty much brought everyone to tears.

I would like to thank everyone for coming tonight. This year is a special year for our family. Last year we weren’t sure were we would be today. So for me this isn’t just a celebration for my mom and dad but a celebration for our family, and with out the love and support of our friends and family I know we would’ve gone insane by now.

25 years ago my mom found the love of her life, and if couldn’t have come for a better time for her. My mom and I had a lot of tragedy that struck our family at one time. And Waldo was her knight and shining armor. I don’t even want to imagine were she would be if he hadn’t come into her life. You don’t see a love like theirs that comes around too often we are all lucky if we just have an ounce of what they have. And 25 years later their love for each other is still going strong. . I thank my dad for loving my mom and brining her back to life!!!

I also want to thank all my brothers for being here today. My sister- in –law Jeanie made this most amazing beautiful cake. So here is a toast to Waldo and Kenra and to another 25 years together. LET’S EAT CAKE!!

Here is a picture of my mom, grandpa, me and my dad. It was a great night.

Here is some extra pictures I thought would also add to the details of the party.

To me the elegance is in the small details, I wouldn't change a thing I did at the party. Congrats mom and dad I love you.

 I would like to share some websites of the places I got some of the great stuff.
