dinner at eight
Last week my husband and I celebrate our eighth anniversary. My gift started with inspiration from these adorable pillow cases!
Since we went to France for our honeymoon and our bedroom is black and white, I knew these would be perfect! I used the translation "good evening" to put together some items that would ensure that we had a "good" evening. To start with we had dinner at 8:00 at our favorite French restaurant on the Cape. For the gift I used the pillow cases as the tissue paper (the bronze heart tissue paper that I made kept smudging and I didn't want it to get on the new white pillow cases). I included the movie "dinner at eight," a new cd by one of my husbands favorite Irish artists, a chocolate "8," and some prosecco that had a bronze foil wrap. I love that this gift included a lot of meaning for both of us and our evening turned out even better than good, it was fabulous!
