Yesterday, I celebrated 2 years of marriage to my amazing husband. We had the most wonderful wedding weekend I could ever have imagined and I love reliving the day by looking at photos and watching our wedding video. I will have to share photos with you all soon ... since it's been two years and all ...
I always wanted to follow the "traditional" anniversary gift list of gifting rules. Year 1 - paper. Does a card count? Year 2 - cotton. I'll have to get creative. But, as you know I live for tradition so don't let me fool you into thinking we don't have a tradition each year.
I am lucky enough to have been passed down china from my grandmother and great grandmother, so needless to say this was not something we registered for. This did give us the opportunity to register for one of my most favorite things of all - Match Pewter. Oh, the patina is to die for and there is really nothing I love more than a good serving piece.
My husband-to-be gifted me a gorgeous platter as a wedding day gift and from that day forward we vowed to spend the rest of our lives together, and to continue our collection. We love to entertain with family & friends and these make a great, memorable addition to the party.
Year 1 - fork + spoon.
Year 2 - a gravy boat.
What piece will we celebrate with next year? I'm open to your thoughts - but might have my mind set already ...
