Sunday, July 17, 1960 at 2:00 p. m. I was married. Saturday, July 17, 2010 is my Golden Anniversary. On this special occasion I wanted to share my wedding day memories with my Wonderful family and Great friends. And, in celebration of my Golden Anniversary. I would love to show you a few keepsakes I have saved for 50 years. There is a Summer Cloche Party at A Stroll thru Life and I thought I would use cloches to show you my keepsakes.
Between Naps on the Porch is having Tablescape Thursday. Golden Anniversary Tablescape is #4. The soft white cupcakes with white sugar crystals and gold papers remind me of my beautiful wedding cake and the lemonade is very refreshing on a hot July day.
My thrifty find at a party store. 50 says it all.
This is my Bridal Headpiece.
Golden Anniversary reminds me of GOLD. I found this Limoges cup, saucer and dessert plate at an estate sale. Just one. OK!!! $10.00 dollars. I love GOLD.
OK. You're asking why salt and pepper shakers? Well, our neighbor across the street from where I lived, gave me this pair of sterling silver salt and pepper shakers as a wedding gift. And, she said "If you give the bride and groom a pair of silver salt and pepper shakers it will bring them luck all through their married life". Oh my goodness, I think it worked.
This pair sat on top of my wedding cake. And have moved around for 50 years in a shoe box. I was very careful with the bottom, because it's just about to fall into a dozen pieces. I'm so happy they made it to the party.
I set the table with my 'good china' Style House, Fine China with a platinum edge trim. It was made in Japan and the pattern is called 'Rhythm'. The silverware is 'First Love'. The salt cellar and spoon are vintage. And the crystal was a wedding gift from a very dear friend.
The crystal is called 'Shell Pearl' by Fostoria. I received 12 Champagne, 12 Clarit wine glasses and 12 Water goblets. I registered for this pattern and I was so surprise when I opened the box and saw all the beautiful crystal. I still remember the feeling of delight. Thank you David for giving me this beautiful glassware.

I know we look young. Yes, we were young.
Thank you for visiting me and I hope you enjoyed my romantic story.
I think Marriage is a life long journey. And, I am so blessed to have a husband who loves me and fabulous children and granddaughters who are my inspiration to live one day at a time and enjoy every moment.
