  • Create unique and personal invitations with photos.
  • Song lyrics or common phrases are a great addition to an invitation.
  • Send an index card and ask each guest to write down a memory or funny story about the anniversary couple and bring it to the party. Put out a card box for the memory cards, or put them all in an album with photos from the party for the special couple.



  • Use disposable tableware to make your job easier. Pick a festive design, or choose two or three fun solid colors and mix them up.
  • Plastic glassware is fancy looking, but affordable and disposable. Great for any party.
  • Don’t forget to order extra tablecovers for the food and gift tables. Table skirts are a nice touch too; they add a more finished and festive look.
  • Anniversary Party Packs are a great way to order the essentials.
