There is a fun tradition in my family that my brother and I just put to use. Our family lives all over the U.S., and it’s not always practical to get together for the big celebrations. Instead, we put out a call for cards, a sort of “card party”.
This summer, my parents are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. We were told, “No party!” Instead, we came up with a great idea to send them to a cabin where they spent part of their honeymoon. But, we still wanted everyone to know about the occasion. So we sent out our invitation for cards.
It was a success. My parents had a nice stack of cards that they opened with breakfast on their anniversary. What a nice way to start the day. And some of those sending the cards were so clever, including $40 for 40 years and even a photo album of old photos of the two of them.
designer takeaway: This is a great way to make someone feel loved!
