My husband and his siblings threw a surprise anniversary party for his parents last weekend. They have been married for 35 years.
Their wedding color was yellow and my sister-in-law thought it would be nice to decorate with the same color. She also used white and some other accenting colors. I tried to get pictures of everything but I wasn’t really focused on making sure they were perfect pictures.
For the table centerpieces, we used mason jars and a yellow ribbon band with a white ribbon bow over the top. (And yes, I said we because I helped tape the ribbon on and fill the jars with flowers though all of it was my sister-in-law’s idea)
All my pictures of the photo wall turned out blurry, which is a bummer because it was really cute. We put the pictures on scrapbook paper frame and hung them on long strands of yellow ribbon.
I volunteered to make the punch. I found this recipe on food.com while searching for yellow punch.
Servings: 24 people
- 2 6 oz cans frozen orange juice concentrate
- 2 6 oz cans frozen lemonade concentrate
- 1 46 oz can can pineapple juice
- 2 quarts water
- 1 2 liter bottle sprite
- lemons sliced (optional)
- Combine all juices and water.
- Add sprite and sliced lemons.
You may also want to add ice if your punch is no longer cold.
I love the color of this punch and it has that sour kick of lemonade but it still yummy!
Overall it was a great time! My husband’s parents were very surprised and seemed to enjoy themselves greatly. It was fun to be a part of planning and decorating.
