Terrarium Love

We recently celebrated our 4th year wedding anniversary. Ryan and I switch off every other year as to who plans the date. This year was my year. I had so much fun planning the activity, dinner, and gift. A little background on the theme for the night: Ryan and I also follow the "traditional" anniversary gift list. Fourth year is flower/ or fruit.  What to get a guy that is flower or fruit related? I struggled. And then the ideas started coming and it all came together. We visited the DenverBotanical Gardens for the activity for two reasons, one it is flower related, and two our reception was held at Red Butte Gardens.  Although it is not the same garden, it still felt sentimental.  For dinner we went to Beatrice and Woodsley. Wow, this place is magically romantic inside.  The tables are nestled in trunks of aspens, keeping right in line with my flower/ nature theme. For the gift, I gave him a Terrarium. I found the case at Crate and Barrel, and bought the succulents and cacti at our local nursery.  It was super easy to make and I just love the look on Ryan's face when he got it, he loved it!
