Are you looking for 60th Wedding Anniversary ideas to help you plan a very special celebration for your parents or grandparents?
A sixtieth anniversary is such a joyous occasion to share with family and friends. But like all special events, it requires a vision and a plan.
Here are a few ideas to help get you started in planning a very memorable party.
The health of the couple will be a deciding factor in where and how big a party to have.
An informal dinner party held at a relative's home or a favorite restaurant would be a great idea.
However, if the couple resides in a nursing home or retirement community, then hold the celebration there and invite all the residents. Everyone will have a great time!
If any of the attendants from the original wedding are able to attend, this would be a wonderful surprise for the couple.
Another nice surprise would be to have a limo pick up the anniversary couple and deliver them to the party.
Decorations are important in helping to set the mood of any party. If you choose a theme for your anniversary party, then decorating becomes easy.
For example, you could choose a theme that represents the year or decade that the couple was married in.
Or you could choose a Valentine's Day theme and decorate with hearts, roses and candles.
A fairy tale theme using plenty of sparkling lights is another great decorating idea.
Below are a few more decorating ideas:
A very memorable 60th wedding anniversary idea is to duplicate the original wedding cake that the couple had 60 years ago.
Or have a cake made with a very large diamond ring on top.
Another idea is to have a cake made in the shape of a hobby the couple has enjoyed together, such as, a sailboat or golf bag.
The traditional gift for the 60th year anniversary is diamonds. However, do not feel that you have to purchase diamond jewelry for the couple.
A perfect gift for the couple is a "Memory Scrapbook". Make the scrapbook with 60 pages of pictures and notes from family and friends.
