Decor and Details for the 60th Anniversary

Can you believe they still have the bride's dress? And I thought I'd try a new style of bunting too.

Friends from church brought some goodies for dessert. Can you believe this layered Jello?
I've never seen anything like it!
She even made it to match the color scheme.

What a wonderful party that honored this deserving couple! If a couple has been together for 60 years you know they've got a lot going for them. Good health, obviously, much in common and a good sense of humor are a few of Ed and Lorraine's attributes. This couple's marriage has been filled with travel, family, friends, parties and a whole lot of music. I decided to focus on the music and used vintage sheet music as a runner down the long tables, breaking it up along the way with some folded music fans, paper roses from sheet music and then real yellow roses tucked in here and there. No great surprise there was singing at the party! The church choir did an adorable rendition of "Do You Love Me?" from Fiddler on the Roof and some family members sang the song which Ed serenades Lorraine.

My client made a wonderful program that included a custom crossword puzzle on the back that had "Ed & Lorraine" clues and answers. Lorraine is a regular NY Times crossword puzzler. The pinwheel on a pencil was the party favor and it had a dual purpose. One, the party-ers needed something to solve the crossword puzzle with, and two it represented how the couple met all those years ago when Lorraine's dropped pencil was picked up by Ed. Awe.
