Clarence and I are invited to a 25th anniversary party tomorrow.
I've never met this couple but Clarence has worked with the husband for over 30 years, so he really wants to attend. Me, not as much-though I'm much more outgoing than I was when I was younger, I still have a very hard time going to an event where I will know no one.
I started with the questions early on, like what to wear and, most stressful, what gift to give these (to me) virtual strangers. Since their last name is Logan, we decided on a gift card to Logan's Roadhouse (we hope it's a good place-we've never eaten there) but I saw a cute idea online and decided to do my own adaptation of it to go along with the gift card.
Although you can't really tell in the picture, I used a silver paint pen for the lettering (all 25th anniversary style). Julianne was a huge help to me as I planned how I'd do it, with choosing fonts, and cutting the letters out on her Silhouette for me to trace around.
It was a challenging project at times, but it was fun and I'm happy with the way it turned out...as long as you don't look at that pesky black paint too closely.
What would you give as a 25th anniversary gift to people you don't know well?
