50th Anniversary Party Ideas

50th Anniversary Party Ideas - Memories & Love Happy CoupleWhen planning a 50th anniversary party, we love to focus on the memories and the love between the happy couple. While our 50th anniversary invitations are designed to begin your event in this way, we have also gathered some 50th anniversary party ideas to make your party planning easier throughout the entire event!

  • Ask each guest to bring a fabric square of a memory of significance to the couple and have them sewn into a quilt.
  • Ask guests to write out their favorite memories of the couple, which can then be assembled into a scrapbook as a keepsake.
  • Choose a menu evoking items from their first date or wedding meal.
  • Top the anniversary cake with the topper from their wedding cake if possible.
