Happy Thanksgiving week, friends! Gearing up for the holidays can be a wee bit stressful so we were all about sharing this super fun, laidback 40th anniversary party by Amorology on such a week. Marilyn and Craig built a sweet home away from home near Julian complete with an on-site barn that was perfect for celebrating their 40th anniversary in, especially considering their theme: 40 years and still kickin’. Cue cowboy boots, line dancing, and lots of little nods to the 70s, where it all began! Keep scrolling for more photos by Yuri Yatel.

From the Amorology team: The Faulkner Family has held such a strong place in our hearts over the past years as we’ve had the pleasure to have planned three out of five of their beloved children’s weddings so of course when Marilyn and Craig reached out to us about planning a memorable 40th anniversary party for themselves, we immediately felt so honored to create a celebration they would cherish for years and years to come! 

After building their sweet home away from home near Julian we knew that it was the perfect place to celebrate their love for one another with a fun boot stomping country-western theme in their onsite barn! We infused small chamomile daisies into their design by layering plates with yellow centers as well as a daisy inspired cake to wink at the 70’s, the era when they devoted themselves to one another. We also incorporated cowboy boot cookies to nod to their “40 years and still kickin’” vibe that guests were able to enjoy prior to hitting the dance floor for some line dance lessons!

Fall touches and florals by Layered Vintage offered cozy to the barn where we brought in warm plaid blankets and table runners as well as pomegranates with guests names to act as place cards among the loose fallen leaves, walnuts and dancing candlelight! Guests gathered next to wood crackling fire pits and comfy lounges while the smell of sweet and savory barbeque filled the air! Touching toasts were given by each of their children to their parents and in true Faulkner form they packed the dance floor with fun the rest of the night!
