When Ryan and I got married, we decided that we wanted to commemorate each year of our lives together with a Christmas ornament. In ten years we'll be reliving a lot of memories as we decorate the tree!
After trying unsuccessfully to find a bride and groom ornament that we actually liked, we decided to make our own ornament with a brooch and some ribbon from our wedding day.
But then we found another ornament that would remind us of our honeymoon in Charleston (a pineapple). It was an after-Christmas sale and we just had to pick it up. So we'll probably be buying an ornament for every trip or big event in our lives.
This year a couple more ornaments joined our brooch and pineapple. I filled two clear ornaments with rose petals. One has petals from corsages and bouquets from our wedding.
I can't wait until we have enough of these ornaments to put on their own tree! At this rate, it shouldn't take too long!
