One Week from Today

I always like to decorate my coffee table in the Living Room according to the seasons or holidays. Today I decorated in honor of our 35th Wedding Anniversary next Monday. We are going to be enjoying some time together in Vegas, so I thought we would enjoy the items now. The big album is our wedding album. The silver goblets are from our 25th Wedding Anniversary party.
This is one of the Bibles I presented to my in-laws and my mother as I came down from the ceremony. I placed my original wedding set and my hubby's replacement (story another time!) ring on the Bible opened to the story of Ruth.
35 Wonderful years! We have been through many life experiences together, us and our Lord, in those years, but my husband was then and is now the love of my life and my soul mate.
I just love this little birdbath and thought it was so romantic looking!
Some ribbon to remind us to remember all the wonderful memories.
A picture of us from our 25th Wedding Anniversary!
We are going to enjoy our time at the Venetian and are looking forward to seeing Phantom. I promise to bring lots of pictures back.

And for my husband....I love you. One life, One love, Always and Forever.

As always, C, your table is gorgeous! This design is my favorite of all the presentations I've seen on that pretty living room table! The theme, your 35th wedding anniversary, is special and represents the true relationship that you and Hubby share. Enjoy Vegas and all the wonderful plans you have made for your time there. Happy anniversary to our dear friends!
XOXO Kathy & S

P.S. I just got your card in the mail today so it might be waiting for you when you get BACK from Vegas!

What a clever idea to make the coffee table a special place to decorate. I love your choices to celebrate your anniversary!

You asked about how to manipulate the photos...Its' really easy, you don't even need a special program. Just go to and you can download your photos for FREE...then use the edit option and go to special effects. There is an option called "fresco" just click on that and it automatically alters your photos. Then I just
e-mailed them to CVS Pharmacy or Walmart and they printed them out. If you have a photo printer then it will be even cheaper! Good luck and let me know if you get stuck and need more info!

Have a wonderful anniversary! We are about 10 years behind you (April 14, 1984). We're going to Atlantic City for a few days.
Your decorating touches are really lovely.
