My in-laws will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this fall.
They want to go back to the church to renew their vows (which they refer to as "returning to the scene of the crime"), which makes me a little weepy with sentimentality every time I think about it. They've been through a lot over the years and to think that they want to stand up in front of everybody and vow that they'd do it all over again... it makes me realize how special they are.
Of course, I've jumped on the chance to do the invitations.
We're talking about playing the music of their past at the reception and I'd love to do period appetizers (devilled eggs, shrimp cocktail, ramaki -- I may have to encase something in jello).
To fit with the period feel of the rest of the celebration, I'd love to do a spinning record invitation, that looks like an old time 45. It was sparked by this clever invitation, that my friend Carol, of Extreme Cards sent to me:
Isn't it lovely? Check out this link to read more about this beautiful wedding.
Here's the initial proof -- I think it turned out pretty good! Now I'm working on a fake record album cover to slip it into...
Man I love doing what I do!
