Celebrating 6 Years...

hey everyone!
i'm back to share a little party i put together about 2 weeks back to surprise ian for our 6th wedding anniversary! i didn't have any ideas of what to do or buy until the very last min! so the night before, i frantically dig through my stash (and my fridge) and this is what i came up with... 

i made 2 simple banners! one with some doilies and old book paper. the second one, i used the black alphabets (i have been hoarding these) from studio calico cirque main scrapbook kit and bits and pieces from maggie holmes open book collection ephemera pack, vellum pack, layered tags, decorative pins! i basically hang the goodies to some baker's twine with little wooden clothes pins. here's some details...

we are celebrating 6 years, so i thought i decorate my plant with one of the huge mint green numbers from lisse street main scrapbook kit. yes, i have been hoarding these as well...

and lastly, i used some of the labels and little tags from the open book ephemera pack to make a banner topper for my cake! i tied the 2 ends of the baker's twine to bamboo skewers and added the labels and little tags as banners between the 2 skewers.

i had lots of fun putting this little party together and was glad the food and decorations turn out well! i think i will do this again some time soon! :)

hope you enjoyed my little sharing today and see you soon!
