to have and to hold..

It is with much happiness that I can announce 
a 50th wedding anniversary!
 
My husbands lovely parents 
Pat and Ron,
whom we celebrated with on Saturday night.
Maybe not the best picture,
(a few too many beers perhaps!)
but this ladys is wearing one of
the original bridesmaid dresses
made by Pats Mum.
Its very fifties stylewise
amazing really that it's survived in perfect 
condition after 50 years!
 So this is their surprise cake I've been toiling over
for the past few weeks.
I wanted to emulate their original cake,
I think with a bit of artistic licence,
I pulled it off.
 I made all the decorations,
M&S made the cakes!
(I can highly recommend them)
 I shall be posting how I made these
easy flowers at a later date.
 Here are the biscuits I made.
The zero at the top is the only one that got an iced squiggle...
..two hours later and here they are all wrapped!
After fifty years together
what a blessing they found each other 
all those years ago..
..a bit like me and the squiggle cookie!!!
Out of 70 this is the one I received.
I just cant get away from different can I!!

Many Congratulations to all celebrating anniversaries
may you one day be celebrating fifty fabulous years
together too!

The cookies and cake look great! And what a lovely post, I'd LOVE to get hold of some of the bridesmaid dresses from my Mother's Wedding, sadly they are long gone (although her homemade wedding dress is still there). Beth/The Linen Cat :)
