A Special Anniversary Celebration

Ever thought of renewing  your vows in front of friends and family to celebrate an anniversary? I was honored when this couple asked for help decorating for a sweet celebration honoring their anniversary. We used their original color palette and they even had a cake made incorporating their original cake topper.

Simple arrangements of hydrangeas, rice flower, freesia and ‘Sterling’ roses in square glass vases graced the gazebo alongside candles nestled in sand.

Floating candles and rose petals lined the floor of the gazebo. The simplicity of the evening kept the focus on the romance of the occasion and the importance of relationships…with family and friends.

Have you had a special ceremony  to celebrate an anniversary or renewed your wedding vows? I’d love to hear about it!

Hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for another great week of sharing flowers and thoughts…
