So it's your folks' silver jubilee and you wish to throw them a surprise party. You're planning to invite all your family members, friends and relatives and you really want to make this a truly grand occasion.
You're done with the guest list and the banquet menu and the next thing on your agenda is the party decoration. But somehow, you can't come up with good enough ideas. Look no further my friend. Here are some ideas which you can make use to make your party a memorable one.
Decoration Ideas for a Wedding Anniversary
For perfect decoration, you should keep the following things in mind-
- the size of the party venue and its location i.e., whether indoor or outdoor
- the expected number of guests
- the party theme
- the different events and party games that have been planned
There are various decoration options that you can make use of, depending on whether the party is an indoor or outdoor event. If you are in the midst of the rainy season, you would be advised to have an indoor party unless you are absolutely certain about a clear weather forecast for that particular day well in advance.
Order these flowers in sufficient quantities and arrange them in a centerpiece, as well as on the table where the couple will be seated. If there is a stage or a stairway, you can line the steps with a combination of red, pink, and orange rose petals.
You can also use medium-sized rubber balloons in colors of green, lavender, and orange to decorate the remaining areas. You can spread a few of them randomly on the floor and you can also paste a few on the surrounding tree leaves, chair backs, table corners, etc.
Another option you could consider is running wires of multi-colored rice lights or micro lamps along the wall borders as well as around tree trunks and branches. Try not to overdo the lighting though, as too much of lighting can spoil the look.
Starting from one corner of the room, move towards the adjacent corner while pasting all these photographs in a chronological sequence i.e., from the day of their wedding till date. This 'reel' of photos is an innovative way of showcasing the couple's journey through matrimony over the years.
You can also add to the party décor by using red or gold ribbons, streamers, colored crepe paper, and lanterns. Party embellishments can be extremely easy and thoroughly enjoyable if you know what you want and how you want it.
