Robert and I had a wonderful time celebrating our 25th anniversary with friends last night! I loved using all of my pretty silver pieces (many of which were wedding gifts), and I was very happy with how my food turned out. A couple of the recipes are elsewhere on my blog. I'm glad to share any others.

Breakfast Room Table set up for drinks
I served Cocktail Beef Wellingtons with Bernaise Sauce, Stilton Tart with Cranberry Chutney, Aegean Olives, Maple Salmon Bites, Cajun Shrimp, Pancetta Medallions with Goat Cheese and Pear. I was happy with how everything turned out, and people ate a lot
Robert and me with my cousin Ted and his wife Susan. They have also been married 25 years this summer. Notice the silver bracelet on my right arm that was my anniversary present from Robert. It's beautiful and was a total surprise!
Toasting 25 wonderful years!
Cutting our silver anniversary cake (it was delicious - I did not make this!)
Vivian surprised us and came downstairs. She usually shuns crowds, but she was so sweet - didn't even try to throw anything at anyone!

What a treat to be able to celebrate with friends and family!
A sweet and talented friend made this beautiful shadow box for us. The white heart is our wedding date, the red hearts our children's birthdays and the silver heart our 25th anniversary date. The other hearts contain passages from an old book with words pertinent to our life. What a wonderful gift!

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
