Then on Sunday it was my lovely mother and father-in-law's 50th wedding anniversary! What a truly fantastic milestone. My husband is one of five children and they all arranged the most lovely party. I made the cake and was thrilled with how it turned out. The only blip was that I'd ordered a tiny floral arrangement to go on the top corner of the cake but when it turned up it was huge. It doesn't look that big in the background here but it was! Luckily we had bought some little artificial ones as back up. I have a serious dislike (to put it politely) of fake flowers but these ended up looking quite sweet. And as the rest of the family pointed out, they can be kept as a memory forever. My mum-in-law even had her wedding dress, shoes, headgear and wedding telegrams on display. Miss 4 got to try on the wedding dress while standing on a chair. She thought she was the bees knees. Happy Anniversary Jo & Ian!
And also a huge thank you to TwoLuLa for passing on an award too! It made my day ladies - thank you so very much.
