More party photos!

As promised more photos from the Anniversary party i mentioned yesterday…thanks Natalie Lacy Lange from Texas Live Magazine and the Shady Acre blog for helping with these photos! You are amazing!

My beautiful friend Sarah with her creme brulee masterpieces…she was so calm with that torch! And below is the huge tree the children gave their parents as an anniversary gift…the couple was married under beautiful trees 25 years ago and we used a tree motif on the invitation, for the gift and of course the photo tree i showed yesterday and again below!

The menu was yummy brisket and the was so tender the little wood forks were easy to use!  The tables had plain white cloths with burlap runners and salvia plants in galvanized pots from was so windy we didn’t get many table shots..we used the rocks to try and keep our cloths from blowing away..

I wanted to set out the darling purple check napkins but didn’t chance it for the wind!  Oh well, it stormed the night before and we were just grateful for sunshine!

A dear friend of the family made the cupcakes..i got the pleasure of displaying them on various cake plates and boxes and platters….

Love those demi spoons from Garnish..perfect for the creme brulee (i have no idea how to accent on the keyboard..sorry  peter and camille!)

The tiered stand and chalkboards are from Williams Sonoma.

Other sources include Persnickety Prints for the precious retro prints on the tree simply clothes pinned to twine, Sweet B for the anniversary banner, Tara Royers Steele for the chalkboard art, The Brown Shed for the vintage frogs holding photos, and Garnish for the wood utensils. Digital invitation design similar to this by Hen and Co. and printed at Office Max..Sarah says they were so user friendly and she did a great job mailing them out with burlap bands and cute martha labels..can you tell we had fun!!

Thanks for letting me share and share and share about this…can you tell we had fun?! Thanks for everyone who helped both with the party and me in particular with the decorations..i have talented friends and sources that always help me out in a pinch including babysitters and a great husband! Y’all are the best!
