Today's real party post has a special place in my heart. It's not just because it's at one of my favorite restaurants, Hillbilly Tea in Louisville, KY, but because it's my parents' 50th anniversary party. On the wedding blog I often remind couples that if they're planning a holiday wedding that means they'll have a holiday-time anniversary every year, which can make planning difficult.
This has certainly been the case for my parents, their anniversary is December 23rd. It's especially tricky because we don't celebrate Christmas. But, I like the way this party feels festive and holiday-like without feeling like a holiday party.
