The celebration of a golden wedding anniversary is a very special day and it deserves some special attention to detail to mark the occasion. Whether it’s a table set with candies wrapped in gold foil or table runners made of gold swirl printed cellophane, the little touches can make the day. Color coordinated table settings, confetti, place cards and centerpieces can bring the look together.
Try something out of the ordinary that will create a memorable keepsake such as a guest book frame. Place a treasured photo in the center of a frame and have your guests write their sentiments of congratulations surrounding the photo making this a treasured gift. Or, a custom guest book with scrapbook pages so that guests can write messages as they sign in, maybe adding a few special photos on the pages that will remind everyone of the years of love shared by the special couple.
A memory jar is filled with little remembrances, jotted down by your guests, and collected in a decorative container, like this ceramic gift box with a golden bow. Simply provide paper strips about 2″ x 11″ that they can fold and add. Sharing cards work in a similar way, and can be mailed with the invitation, or placed at each place setting to encourage contributions. A collection box or basket can be centrally located. Insert gold wrapped bon-bons or candies into each place card for a table favor.
