We celebrated my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary this past weekend in Colorado!! We {my sister, brothers and I} threw them a surprise party!!! Boy, were they surprised!!! Their Anniversary was in April but I couldn't make it home with the kids in school and my husband super busy at work, so we decided to wait until all the kids were out for summer break and throw them a huge surprise party!! We invited all of their friends and all of our extended family!!! It was so much fun & I had a great time creating their dessert table. Their wedding colors were light pink and white ~ so I opted to use those colors with a little bit of yellow {to represent the "golden" anniversary}. I'm very pleased on how it came out!! What do you think? Do you like the color combination or do you think I should have used the actual gold color?  Here are additional photos:

My Aunt Addie made the cake for them ~ it turned out great & it was SO good!! It melted in your mouth!!!

I used some light pink candy ~ strawberry malt balls, jelly bellies (watermelon & pink lemonade), Hershey Dark Chocolates wrapped in pink wrappers!!!

I LOVE their wedding photo!! We updated it with a new modern frame!!! On this side to of the table we used gold wrapped candy - Werther's original hard candies, Almond Roca, mints and some chocolate kisses!!

What would an anniversary party be without the 'cutting of the cake'?

And of course.......the KISS!!!!
You two are just so stinkin' cute!!!!

Thanks Mom & Dad for showing us you can have a strong and healthy marriage with a little work & a Whole Lotta LOVE!!!!

Happy 50th Anniversary!!!
We Love you,
