How To Host A Golden Anniversary
For any couple a 50th wedding anniversary is a big feat. Since very few marriages survive for so long, these days, a 50th wedding anniversary is something that is worth celebrating and if you are planning to host a golden anniversary there are tips here to make your party a great success. After all, this is one occasion which both you and your partner want to remember with fondness for the rest of your lives.
Tips To Throw A Golden Anniversary Party
Deciding Upon The Venue
This is the first thing that you need to think about for hosting a golden anniversary. The venue that you choose should be large enough to accommodate all your guests. It can be a restaurant, a banquet hall or even your home.
You also need to think of your budget before you decide to book a place for the big occasion.
Sending Out The Invitations
Once the venue has been decided you can sit down together to make your guest list. This is one occasion where you cannot leave out any of your close friends and relatives. To make this event extra special you can decide to send out handmade invitation cards to all the guests informing them about the date, time and place.
On this big event of your life you want to create the perfect ambience not only for your guests to enjoy but also for you and your partner to rejoice the years you have spent loving each other.
Although the decorations are going to largely depend on your budget, you can decide to keep the theme golden or red to symbolize your love for each other. It is best to hire professionals to do the decorations as they can also supply you with balloons, streamers, tableware, etc. to go with the theme.
Setting The Menu
The next important agenda is to decide the kind of foods you want to serve to your guests. If you are celebrating your golden anniversary in a banquet hall or restaurant you can hire a caterer who will prepare all the food. This will take off quite a burden from your shoulders and leave you free to mingle with the guests.
However, one thing that you should not leave it to the caterer is the party cake. Find a cake that goes with the theme of your party. For instance, if you have kept everything golden then you can order a golden butter cake or golden rum cake.
Golden Anniversary Party Activities
Simply throwing a party is not enough. You need to ensure that the guests are having a blast. Since it is an anniversary party there should be some activities for you and your spouse along with the other couples in the guest list.
For instance, you can plan a question-answer round to see which couple knows each other the best. A party is dull without music. So, hire the best DJs who can take you back to the time when you and your spouse had just met.
