Christi's parents will be married for 40 years in August. She wanted to do something special for them, yet something that they would really enjoy. They decided a game day with family and some of their friends would be the perfect way to celebrate. A lunch of different kinds of dips and tortilla chips and flautas with the extras for those, were served. Then everyone enjoyed some treats from the dessert table while they drank their coffee.
Mints with the number 40 on them and sugar cookies the shapes of hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs.
Chocolate cake balls and white chocolate fudge dice added to the display not just in looks but in taste too.
I created this scrabble board with their picture from their wedding day and a picture of them from last year's Florida vacation. I used the tiles to say
"Dan and Deb"
"Forty year anniversary"
I turned tooth picks into croquet sets, complete with painted wooden balls for the tops.
I made them cute little flowers to wear on their shirts. Just a fun added touch.
