Flowers Fruit

The wife and I alternate years; so it was my turn to plan. I reserved a room at a nice hotel, ordered some silk flower petals in the colors of our wedding and placed them in the room on the floor. That morning I made strawberry and bananna pancakes for her and left them in her car for her breakfast, and I put three different flower bunches of gold, purple, and white on her desk at work and wrote happy anniversary. At lunch I gave her an edible arrangement of fruit made into a flower.

Symbolic

For our third annivesary, we went on a midnight horseback ride. There is a place near us that does this. It included a guided horseback ride on trails, a hayride, and a dinner of pulled pork and macaroni salad under the moonlight next to a campfire. You can even BYOB.

We are both going to do some new landscaping to one particular area of our new home. Plants, flowers, rocks and such. With some framed photos of fond memories on the side (not of the landscaping, just in general)

4th Anniversary Idea

I plan on going to the new York botanical gardens to have a picnic with lots of fresh fruit, cheese and wine while enjoying the fresh air and spectacular flowers. That covers the traditional theme of fruits and flowers for the 4th Anniversary

Romantic Weekend

We left the little one with the grandparents and enjoyed some of Louisiana's most decorated plantations.... Flowers were everywhere! Rosedown plantation and the Aston Villa... Couldn't have been more lovely. And upon returning to the suite at our hotel we were greeted with chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. :)
