Yesterday we had a big celebration for Mum and Dad’s 50th Wedding Anniversary.
I must admit that when we celebrated their 40th Anniversary I wondered if they would realistically reach this milestone, as they were late starters, so it made it all the more special.
They knew the party was happening, there was no way that I could keep that a secret, but they didn’t know that their bridesmaid and flower girl would be travelling from Queensland to join them.
It really made the day.
I had fun making a little display of Mum’s wedding dress and a few photos. Mum made all the dresses (she was a dressmaking teacher at the time) and her wedding dress still looks as good as new. It was designed to suit the old cameo brooch. She was so tiny back then and the dress would only just fit on the mannequin for display.
They were joined yesterday by lots of friends and family and I think everyone really enjoyed the day.
