This is not the first post I have wrote about the celebration of my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary – but I promise it is the last! As a family we gathered together and spent a week in beautiful Bend, Oregon and then on my parent’s actual anniversary my sister and I hosted an open house so the extended families could help celebrate. The festivities were wonderful, however, I wanted to make sure that my parents had a permanent keepsake of the events.
Fifty years of marriage is worth celebrating more than once (OK we did celebrate for seven days and then a second occasion) but I wanted them to feel like they were always surrounded by family. My parents live quite a distance from their children and grandchildren. They are currently renting their home so I knew that I wanted a decorative keepsake they could display on one of their many white walls. OK – let’s face it – I did not really feel the need to have my picture on permanent display – but this is not about me.
What solution did I come up with? Removable photo wallpaper! This concept is genius for bare walls especially in rental and leasing situations. I also love that it is removable…I know what you are thinking they might get tired of looking at me….but really I was thinking how perfect for when they move or if they decide it displays better on a different wall after hanging. I was concerned about the actual application of the wallpaper, but after reviewing their FAQ I realized that application was all about having a clean surface, a tape measure, and a second person to help make sure your 24″ x 36″ wallpaper is level.
If you have celebrated a milestone birthday, a family reunion, went on an amazing vacation and your photo memories are hiding on your computer – now is the time to display them with your own custom photo wallpaper. I can’t wait to give this to my parents for Christmas. Who are you going to surprise this holiday season?
