party : paul & marilyn’s 50th anniversary

We have been gone for quite awhile!  Amidst a death in the family, a broken computer and general busyness, it’s finally time to share some photos with you from our most recent party!  We recently had the privilege of styling a 50th anniversary party for a sweet couple named Paul & Marilyn.  It was so much fun!  The party was hosted in one of their daughter’s backyards.  Here’s a little glimpse into the event . . .


IMG_7726The colors used were turquoise, red, pink, and gold glitter.  Signage was used to direct guests to the backyard where the party was being held.  Stripes were a big part of the decor and led the way in!



We used crepe paper streamers to brighten up the surrounding area and give the party a cohesive look.



We made a giant “50” that was placed at the center of the party.  It turned out to be a great photo op!


Each table had a centerpiece that highlighted different milestones from their relationship.  We made turquoise flower boxes,  added gold ribbon, and created tiny banners to display the different milestones. The flowers used were hydrangeas, dahlias, and yarrow.



At the cake table, we created a board that had all the different milestones together and various photographs for guests to look at.






Guests enjoyed Italian food served on the deck.  A banner for Paul & Marilyn flew overhead.  Overall, it was a great success!


xo, R.
