First Up my Parents 30th Anniversary Party in Pictures..............
We picked a Creole inspired restaurant downtown in the warehouse district, sitting on the water way. My parents had never been there, so that was a major plus for us. It was a nice intimate gathering of about 45 people
The photo invitation was created by my sister. She is super talented I swear. My parents didn't actually see it until the party & they loved it. The restaurant created a special menu listing the entrée choices and it was personalized too but I didn't get a photo of it.
The centerpieces we created that day for the tables at the restaurant. We took them home & enjoyed them for the rest of the weekend !

I created a memento by putting their photo on a mat. My nieces made sure that all the guests at the party signed it. We presented the framed finished product to my parents the day after the party.

Daddy's Little Girls all grown up.
What is an Anniversary Party without a slide show ? Mr. Mixologist was the technical support for the party presenting the slideshow flawlessly.
My parents truly enjoyed the food, the venue, the ambiance, the family, friends and fun.
My high school Band Director's Jazz Trio performed that evening and gave a shout out to my parents for their Anniversary between sets. We really enjoyed the entertainment & my parents now want to come back downtown for a date night ! LOL
Of course we had to have the photo cake with the Old School Wedding Photo along with a current day photo. My parents thought it was lovely.
We got our money's worth out of the centerpieces that we made with the fresh flowers by setting them up all over the house and using them to decorate the table with the wine & champagne glasses. That is what you call double duty ! LOL
My niece Savannah giving a Toast to her Grandparent's. She was hilarious.
My other niece Olivia, reading a poem that she wrote especially for her Grandparents on their special day. She was pretty funny too.
My parents actually met, through my Mom's cousin Danny who was in the military with my Dad. My mom dropped my cousin off at the National Guard Armory one day, my dad saw her and was instantly smitten. He insisted that Danny make the introduction and as they say.....the rest is history !
