Ideas For Anniversary Party

Here are some unique and creative ideas for an anniversary party that are sure to elicit joy and appreciation from the guests of honor as well as the party guests!


· Include the couple’s wedding picture on the front of the invitation. If it isn’t available, any picture from the early days of their relationship or marriage will work beautifully.

· Ask each guest to come prepared to share a favorite memory of time spent with the guests of honor.


· Keep it simple, but elegant. Sticking with a color theme helps pull a ‘finished’ look together. Of course, a silver theme is for 25th anniversary and gold for a 50th anniversary are the standard.

· A banner on the front door such as “Happy 25th Paul and Lisa” is a lovely and welcoming touch to the couple and the guests.


Whether you decide to have a sit-down dinner, just appetizers or just dessert – plan an activity to honor the couple. Having each guest briefly share a favorite memory of the couple will be very meaningful. Be sure to assign someone to bring a video camera to record all of the comments.

Gifts to Give:

· Gift certificates in the same denomination as the couple’s years together. For example, a $ 25 gift certificate to the movies, a $ 50 gift certificate to a restaurant, etc.

· A gift that is comprised of the same ‘amount ‘ as the couple’s married years together. For example, 25 lottery tickets, a 50 minute couples’ massage, a beautiful flower bouquet of 25 flowers, etc.

As the Party Ends:

· If gifts were opened at the party, provide the couple with a list that notes each gift and next to the gift the person(s) that gave it.

· Give the couple a list of who attended so that if they want to follow-up with a thank-you to those guests they can easily do so.
