Anniversary parties allow others to share in your happiness
February 02, 2010
Anniversary parties are the perfect way to celebrate the milestones in your relationship as a couple. They bring together friends and family and allow others to share your joy and happiness.
If you have an anniversary coming up, whether it's your first or 25th anniversary be sure to throw yourselves a big bash to celebrate.
Many couples women especially experience a little bit of a letdown after their wedding, because they looked forward to it for so long. However, new brides don't have to get the post wedding-bell-blues, they can just be sure to make each anniversary a special bash that recreates the joy and happiness they felt on their big day.
Plan for the party ahead of time
Just as you would plan for your wedding, be sure to begin organizing the festivities of your anniversary party well in advance. Stock up on anniversary party supplies, like festive paper plates, cups and napkins, as well as anniversary decorations like banners with your names and wedding date, festive centerpieces, metallic garlands and plenty of party lights.
Serve your guests some delicious and fancy fare, like your favorite appetizers, and make sure to have a cake ready for the end of the night. For a touch of nostalgia, you could consider ordering the same flavor or style of cake that you had on your wedding day.
Big anniversaries deserve a lot of attention!
For landmark anniversaries, like your 25th or 50th anniversary, go all out to celebrate the success of your union. You could even consider hiring an event planner so that you don't have to do all of the work!
If you plan on having a huge crowd at your next shindig, considering hosting it at a venue, like a restaurant or lounge that you frequent, or an especially big space like a banquet hall.
Have the meal catered by your favorite restaurant, or consider recreating the menu that you served at your wedding.
Of course, it wouldn't be a big party without music and dancing, so make sure that wherever you choose to host your bash has a dance floor, or at least an open area. Hire a DJ or band for the evening, or at least convince a friend with good taste in music to be in charge of the tunes. Make sure to include songs that you played at your wedding and reserve the first dance for just you two as a couple.
Break open the bubbly!
No matter how you choose to plan your anniversary party, just make sure that it's a night that you and your significant other will enjoy, because that's all that really matters. It's a night meant to celebrate yourselves as a couple, and all the experiences you've had so far and all of the good things that are yet to come.
So pop open some champagne, hand it out to your loved ones and make a toast to yourselves!
