Yesterday my inlaws celebrated their 5oth wedding anniversary with immediate family and their closest friends. We had a sit down lunch for 30 at my brother in laws house and the children and inlaw children all contributed to make it a special day for them. This time we had the lunch catered, it's just so much work when we are all working during the week. So I was on flower duty. I was really pleased with how they turned out, but with a very small window to get them ready in the morning I have a new appreciation of just how labour intensive floristry is, even if also so very rewarding.
