Sixtieth Anniversay Party. With Pictures. Just a Few.

Today I’m sharing some pictures, taken by Carolina C. Page, of my grandparents’ anniversary fiesta.

We did the whole catholic ceremony shebang and everything. I realized sitting through an hour long mass wasn’t so bad. I could barely even sit through an hour of Housewives and I choose to watch that.

The candid picture of my grandparents is my favorite. My grandpa is quite the funny guy and grandma rarely shows any real emotion in her pictures, and this one here depicts just how much grandpa still charms the panties off of grandma. Hope no one got any mental pictures with that one. Now you did.

I did the centerpieces. And thank jesuschristo my aunt’s sister was visiting because it was her idea to steal greenery from my uncle’s garden when we ran out of flowers. Here I was thinking I bought extra to be safe. It’s tough to judge the exact amount of flowers one will need for twenty plus centerpieces. I even asked my usual guy at the flower mart. Thank you flower mart guy, you really know how to stress a lady out. The 230 degree temperature didn’t help either. Every flower stem was like, I want the last sip of water. For vases, I went with these buckets that reminded me of the days my grandparents used to milk their cows. Moo.

In the end it really (usually) does work out and I’m getting good at practicing my patience.

And no Mexican fiesta is complete without the mariachi.

Arriba arriba.

Happy Thursday!

    Awww! Your grandparents are so sweet! Love the centerpieces, you did a great job, but man/hombre, how totally stressful!

  4. I adore that pic of your Grandparents! So sweet! Fantastic job on the centerpieces, even more special some of the stems came from your Grandparents garden. Oe!

  5. I mean uncles garden!

  6. I really enjoyed reading about your grandparents 60th anniversary. You must be so proud. I love your idea and the thinking behind the centerpieces. They look so simple, but it is the simple design that made them so pretty. I love the purple with the greenery. I am sure you will have many memories (good and not so good including the heat and running out of flowers) about the day. Thanks for sharing!

    They are the cutest! I love your flowers and I bet they loved the fact that it was you who did them. This makes me miss my Nana and Boppie even more. Grandparents like those are a special gift for sure!
