Mom & Dad 50th Wedding Anniversary
My parents celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary on February 11, 2011. On January 21, 2011 we had a surprise celebration for them which included approximately 70 family and friends who gathered at the Glooscap Curling Club in Kentville, N.S. to celebrate with them. The party was a complete surprise to my parents and was a tremendous success due to lots of help from my brother, Dan, dear family friends, Erma and Austin, and many other members of our family and friends. The above photos are the front and interior of the invitations we sent out to our guests.
This is the Anniversary Card I made for Mom and dad. Got to use some of my flower stash as well as ribbon from Michaels.
This was the fabulous cake we had made by Cake Designer, Lena Fevens of Lena's Designer Cakes in Port Maitland, Yarmouth Co., N.S. She did a wonderful job. The bottom layer was Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Icing, the middle layer was French Vanilla with Butter Cream Icing and the top layer was Chocolate with Butter Cream Icing. There was also a layer of Fondant over the top of the icings. There were gold embellishments on the cake as well as swags, swirls and flowers which were just lovely. The only inedible parts of the cake were the stamens in the flowers. It was delicious!!!
