20th Wedding Anniversary

After spending hours and hours on Pinterest I finally got off my bum and did one of the ideas that I pinned.  


Hubby and I just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. I feel very blessed that our marriage has lasted so long. I give Jesus all the credit that we are still a happy couple. I can't take any credit whatsoever. I know this to be truth because the first 10 years of marriage was under my own efforts and I screwed it up.

I'm usually really good at gift giving. But I was having a huge mental block for an anniversary gift. I don't have a large budget and the few items that I did order for my husband is on backorder until October 24. So that really threw a wrench in my original idea. I also have a problem buying gifts for my husband with his hard-earned money. I know it is really OUR money but I still have a mental block on the subject. I gave a lot of thought about what gift to buy hubby but nothing ever seemed right or it was too expensive. I kept warning my husband, "You know I don't have anything to give you." He said he didn't care about gifts and said it's not like he doesn't know that I don't have a job. I know he means it, but I wanted to do something...it is after all our 20 anniversary. Late Monday night as I was falling asleep still trying to figure out what to do I remembered an idea that I saw on Pinterest and inspiration finally hit me. I'm really surprised that I was able to complete this at all. I like a lot of planning because I am a slow crafter. On Tuesday I took my son to the doctor and spent 3 hours running around town trying to pick up supplies and started printing pictures. I had to stop working on it as soon as hubby got home so he wouldn't get suspicious. On Wednesday I jumped out of bed at 5:30am to start decorating.  Much to my chagrin hanging the photos is not as easy as it looks. It took me several tries getting the shape of the zero to work. In addition, I baked the ultimate vanilla cupcakes (which I will blog about), took my other son to the eye doctor which took 3 1/2 hours of my time, and made the number 20 button craft for the frame. I did it all by myself w/o any assistance from anyone. Eat your heart Martha Stewart (who has over 250 crafters and assistants who do most of the work for her).  

The traditional gift for 20th anniversary is china. The modern gift of a 20th anniversary is platinum and the gemstone is emerald.  So the color scheme I chose was silver and green. 

Hubby was really surprised when he got home. He loved it!

The silver circle is a table cloth.  I picked up 8x10 photo paper and the balloons from the dollar store. I love the dollar store! It sure is a money saver. I used Powerpoint for printing the pictures.
It takes at least 40 sheets of photo paper for this project. You need to give yourself extra sheets in case the ink runs out. I printed out 3 bad pictures before I noticed I needed to change a cartridge. 
Make sure you have extra ink too. 
I also printed out verses of the Kenny Roger's song
 "Through The Years" and posted them around the pics.

For the hanging circles I used a circle cutter and placed ribbon
 in between the circles before I glued them together.
The paper lanterns are $1 each at Michaels.

Make sure you don't apply too much glue. 
See the big circle on top. It's bending from the weight of the glue.

Ultimate vanilla cupcakes and the button craft project.



We brought the frame with us to Piranha's.

On the Beach Roll and our drinks: Raspberry Bonzai and Cowboytini.
This is my dish Chicken & Shrimp Pad Thai. I had already eaten some of it before 
I remembered to take pictures.

The inspiration came from Martha Stewart 50th anniversary party ideas.

  1. Hi, I'm a new follower. I found you on Freestyle Friday Blog Hop. Hop over and
    say hi if you get a chance Jennifer from Just Wedeminute--

    Our 20 year anniversary is next year and I've been wondering what to do...this is GREAT! I'm pinning it to pinterest so I'll remember!

    1. This may not sound fair, because it’s not

      But did you know that you can be a guy’s dream girl...

      I mean, you can literally check off every box on his “perfect woman” list...

      But if you mess up this one thing, he’ll drop you the second another option comes along?

      My friend James Bauer discovered this missing “secret ingredient” all men are constantly searching for in a woman.

      And most women have no clue it exists because guys aren’t even aware of it.

      We just KNOW when it’s missing.

      ===> The “Secret Ingredient” to obsessive love <=====

      The really cool thing is, when you know how to give a man this “secret ingredient”...

      It will send a shockwave of desire for you straight to his brain and he will HAVE to have you.

      In fact, when you do this... watch his face light up, almost as if he’s just been zapped.

      It’s that moment when he says to himself “Where have you BEEN all my life?”

      Every woman should know this. Check it out here: ====> Why men leave “perfect” women... <=====

  2. 20 years! wow...you both look so happy together. May God grant you 50 more happy years. Yes, I agree, a marriage with Jesus as the glue is much better...I've been married 11 years and it seems like yesterday that I was saying "I do" to my best friend.

    Thanks for sharing over at RoCa and Company

  5. That is truly amazing dear! Actually this idea also came into my mind before some time, but at right time this goes out of my focus. I would now definitely start gathering the pictures of my parents of their younger times, to present those all at the occasion of their anniversary celebration at one of the best Wedding venues in Las Vegas. Great Idea!!
