DIY 50th Wedding Anniversary Party from Salty Bison

Oversized 50 using foam core- awesome party idea!

This past weekend my siblings and I threw a party celebrating our parents 50th wedding anniversary! Between the efforts of us all and the magical land of Pinterest we were able to make it happen. First my brother set up the base structures for us in my parents orchard, (i.e. tables, chairs, backdrops, lights) so we could then go in and fluff it up a bit with some decor. My sister-in-law is a [Read More…]

Leftover Candy Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunt using leftover Halloween candy

Josh created a candy scavenger hunt for our anniversary a few years ago and lots of people have ended up at 30days because of that cute gift he gave me. I was thinking of ways to use up the inevitable leftover Halloween candy….and it occurred to me…why not turn it into a version of a scavenger hunt?
Take this:
and turn it into this: Scavenger Hunt using leftover Halloween candy
You will have some left over, right? If you don’t, that’s ok too.  You can just pick up some candy when you’re out next time.  This could be used for your anniversary, spouse’s birthday, etc.
I’ve made this super duper easy.  All you do is collect the candy and print out the cards.  I used Avery postcards because I use them for just about everything I can. I used glue dots to adhere the candy.  When Josh did this he hid the cards around the house and had me hunt for them.  You could put them on top of presents, stick them in cards, whatever you want.

And the one that happens to be a big softy, even though he doesn’t openly admit it. ;) Little did we know where life would take us all those years ago.  [Read More…]
