Snack sets from 51 years ago!

I was having some friends from church over for tea and a light meal.  I have a set of snack trays that came with the house I bought at auction.  And what I mean by that is that I bought my house at auction and everything that did not sell at the auction was left behind.  Going through the boxes I found a a snack set I thought I would have fun using. I thought I would use my snack set for my little party.  

The set of snack sets come in set of four.  I would need an additional plate and cup, since there would be five of us.  I asked my mom and dad if they had a snack set I could borrow.  My mom said yes.  But, when I went to get the snack set she gave me two boxes and said I could not borrow them, but I had to keep them.  
Ha, I loved it!!  What a way for my parents to clean house!!!  And then my parents said that the snack sets were wedding gifts- that means they were over 50 years old.

Here are my parents on their wedding day over 50 years ago.

The snack sets each had a tag on them.  One said 67 and one said 89- I asked what the tags were for- my parents said that they tagged all the gifts , so they knew who gave them what.  And funny enough, they still had the list and knew who had given them the wedding gifts.  But, if they did not have the list I could tell who gave them the snack sets.  How you ask???

The boxes still had the wedding cards in the boxes.  One of the boxes even had the $2.00 price tag on it.

Enjoying tea with friends and the new snack sets!!!!
