May was a decoration no-man’s land until I thought of bringing up our wedding and graduation memorabilia. Five of our six graduations and our wedding were in May, so why not celebrate them, especially since we had so much from those events?
The table decorations are our unity candle set. All three candles are original from our wedding day. I combined the pew decorations with the corsages and set them in a circle around the candles. Mr. Kitty decided the flowers made a comfortable cat bed, so we had to move them.
I’m with my mother in the large picture. She made my dress, most of the wedding party’s dresses and arranged all the flowers.
I shot the little picture of us wearing bow ties in front of the waterfall. Temperature hit 100 degrees that afternoon and we were roasting. Picture turned out great.
I graduated kindergarten the same weekend Dad graduated college. Here we are in our gowns. Mother made my gown, mortarboard and tassel, but only tassel survives. I have Dad’s tassels on left and his honor cord wraps around the rest.
I have my senior picture, diploma, mortarboard and tassel, plus a crocheted rose someone made for every female graduate.
Hubby didn’t get to keep his mortarboard, so we only have his picture, diploma and tassel.
He has a few more knickknacks from his college graduation, but no tassel. He hung that on his rear-view mirror until it faded and fell apart.
I had to buy all my regalia for my first college degree. The gown still hangs in a downstairs closet, but I display hood, mortarboard and tassel along with degree. All I have from my second college graduation, other than the all important degree, is the tassel.
I enjoy commemorating the happiest days of our lives.
