50th Anniversary Celebration Questions, Ideas & Party Advice
I love your website and got a lot of great ideas, thank you. I wanted to run a few things by you to see what you think. I am not sure if these ideas are tacky or inappropriate for a 50th anniversay party. First instead of gifts would it be ok to say in lieu of gifts a donation may be made to the American Cancer Society or a charity of your choice? Secondly for a centerpeice I was thinking a Wilton cupcake stand with fall decorated cupcakes with perhaps 60's facts sticking out of them on a toothpick or something. The guest to guess the most facts correct wins the cupcake stand plus it serves as dessert. Maybe fall flowers around with a sprinkling of 60's retro candy around? Are these ideas too corny? I would appreciate any input!!!
Those are all excellent ideas! Definitely not corny. Who doesn't' love a good 60's themed party! You have to keep in mind that there are no right and wrong ways to throw an anniversary party. Just do what you think the honorary couple will appreciate and enjoy and you can't go wrong! your idea for charity donations is also great. By your 50th anniversary you probably aren't lacking for much! I'm sure they will appreciate the charitable contributions rather than gifts they don't need. Thanks for your questions and contributions.
