Sepia Saturday - The Kiss

How's this for a royal kiss?
This was my parents 25th wedding anniversary August 4, 1976.

My sisters and I planned this party and kept it a surprise for them. We had their very best friends, another couple Dick and Cookie, take them out to Sunday brunch. By the time they arrived home the field next to our house was filled with cars. The house was filled with guests and decked out. My father wasn't one to make a big deal of things so this was the only way we could have gotten him to go along with this.


When the party is at your own home I guess you can't avoid it.

I agree with Kristin, love has no age, nice to see an older couple represented, especially a couple that has been together for a long time.

Reminds me of our 25th anniversary over 25 years ago.

Nice memories. They look like they are having a good time.
That must have been a wonderful party, and definitely wonderful memories!
Fun to have such memories. I gave me parents a small party at the Hotel Del Coronado for the 50th. I had to plan everything from the other end of the state, but it went off like a charm though my mother at first could not understand why the waiter was seating her at a table with a bunch of people. Suddenly she recognized everyone and she and my dad both cried.

It's all worth it, isn't it?

Great pictures! Your dad seems to be enjoying himself in the last one. Oh, and I'll have one of the iced buns please!
