Easter was obviously the main, and most important focus on Sunday, but there was also another celebration that day in our home.
April 8th already marked six months since Tim and I were married. It is hard to believe! I feel like it was just yesterday that we said ‘I do,’ but time flies so fast and here we are in the middle of spring already. That day was absolutely perfect in my eye and I could not have asked for anything better. (I am hoping to write a wedding re-cap at some point!) I carried eggplant colored calla lilies and champagne and ivory roses the day of, but Sunday it was all about a different color.
As monotonous as it may seem, we still celebrate our anniversary every month the same way we did the entire seven years we dated. The anniversaries may not be considered a ‘big deal’ to others, but our monthly celebrations sure mean a lot to us. That monthly milestone reminds us to ‘stop and smell the roses’ by increasing our focus on each other for the day. Speaking of smelling roses, Tim surprised me by bringing home a dozen coral colored roses that are absolutely gorgeous! The bouquet is now taking center stage on my dining room table.
I carefully trimmed the excess leaves and placed them in a vase that belonged to my great-grandma, and then my grandma who passed it down to me. The perfect mix of new and old! They really brighten up the whole room, don’t you think?
My new spring placemats and napkins are a Crate and Barrel purchase that I picked up a few weeks back. I still had a few gift cards left from our wedding and sprucing up the house for a new season seemed like the perfect way to spend that money.
I love changing out the table setting from season-to-season. It is such an easy way to mix up a room without spending a ton of money to redecorate. My place settings with the white plates and bowls also transition easily with every theme so I only need one set of dishes.
Another part of my dining room that I am loving right now? The big window that peers right outside where I get to see these two boys enjoying the backyard.
Perfect view in my opinion!
Do you celebrate your monthly anniversaries?
What is your favorite color of roses?
Do you like to decorate season-to-season? (I am a huge lover of decorating according to season! I am probably overkill sometimes (ask my husband who put away all the Christmas decorations in the attic!), but it makes me so happy!)
