Reaching 50 years of marriage is nothing short of amazing. How could our parents loved another person for 50 years when we couldn’t last a month with our dating partners. It calls for a celebration that is as grand as their love for each other.
So, for those children who love their parents to the moon and back, here are 5 decorative pieces for their anniversary party to symbolize the beauty that is our parent’s love.
Glitter in everything
Select decorative pieces with glitters on them. You can choose glittered flower vases, candle holders, glittered plates, anything and everything with glitters on them. Choose ones that don’t look tacky, though. I suggest that the location shouldn’t be an explosion of a glittering mess. A splash of it is enough to give it a simple and elegant look. Your parents wouldn’t be happy with the mess after the party.
To truly symbolize the long lasting love of your parents, Marigold should be brought into the occasion. It is a representation of passion and celebration of good relationships. So, what is a more appropriate flower than these Marigolds? You can use them as centerpieces arranged beautifully and elegantly. There are several floral arrangements that will emphasize the beauty of these blossoms.
Wedding photos in black and white
Create a wall that tells the love story of your parents. You can reprint their old wedding photos and other pictures you have of them in classic black and white look. It will not only serve as a good decoration for the event, but it will also create a meaningful one. This will definitely bring back our faith in love.
This is a day of love and romance. Nothing says romantic than the flare of candles. It represents the burning passion and love shared by your parents. To honor the event, choose candles in gold colors. This will also make beautiful centerpieces when you are not fond of flowers. If you cannot find golden candles, then make your own. Nothing like a can of spray paint can solve the problem.
A universal symbol of celebration– balloons. Of course, I am not referring to the party balloons on your sweet sixteen birthday. We should stick with elegant and simple. So we should go with white and gold balloons. You can fill the entire ceiling with these balloons or arrange a bunch of them in key places. Make sure they will look good and clean so as to avoid accidents from tripping over its strings.
Happy 50th to your parents and congratulations for raising such good children! *wink*
