The first thing that had to be made was the peep garland. You'll remember this picture from the sneek peek on Friday.
here. What I liked about their garland was that it was no sew. You saw last week how my sewing turned out. So I just cut out the peeps from felt and used my handy-dandy glue gun to stick them to the ribbon. I must find a better way to hang things like this because it fell down twice! Any ideas there?
One of my favourite parts of the party was that we brought out my mom's fine china. We have probably used it only a couple of time so it was nice to have it out again. Isn't it beautiful? They got it for their engagement, so it was fitting to use it for their anniversary party.
A while ago I made some etched jars and this was the perfect opportunity to use them. I'll share how I made them later this week.
Her cakes are wonderfully decorated and oh! so delicious.
As always, we had way too much food. I baked some Raspberry Coconut Macaroons. You can find the recipe here. And Courtney brought her Speculaas Cookies. Find her recipe here.
There are many more elements of this party that I'd like to share with you. So stay tuned for tomorrow as we look at more fun party ideas.
