Celebrating an anniversary is the special occasion in a marriage. One way to make the occasion even more special is by baking an anniversary cake to the couples liking. After all, when it comes to sweets, cake takes the cake! Children who have parents celebrating a 25th, 30th, or even 50th wedding anniversary may want to consider baking a homemade anniversary cake themselves. Parents always love when their children make them a gift from the heart rather than simply purchasing the gift at the store. This confection of affection is the perfect personal touch. Parents will love any type of cake given to them in general. Understand what filling the happy couple enjoys the most. The right filling will add flavor and sweetness to the dessert. Say if dad loves strawberry but mom loves chocolate then a strawberry chocolate cake would be ideal. Another option would be to make the cake half strawberry and vanilla and the other half chocolate. Variety is the spice and the sweetness of life.
br> The outside of the cake is just as important as how it tastes on the inside. Keep the design of the cake simple and elegant. Avoid brightly colored cake decorations that would be best suited for a child’s birthday cake rather than an anniversary cake. A simple fondant covering with Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad is a nice, simple message. Make the design beautiful but still warm and very homey. Presenting a homemade to parents celebrating an anniversary is an extremely nice gesture. Any parent will feel special they have a son or daughter who would do such a wonderful thing. Along with the cake, include various party supplies and decorations to ensure this anniversary party is the best ever.

They say that Anniversary parties should get more and more elaborate as you gain more and more years in your marriage. Though who says you have to stay with convention? You’re young, newly married and have survived to the one year or even twenty five year anniversary mark. In today’s world with rising divorce rates that can be a big accomplishment. So go ahead and throw yourselves a lavish wedding anniversary party. This can be even more special if you didn’t get to have much of a wedding celebration. Why you might even consider renewing your vows.

Since you are newlyweds you can take advantage of your youthful energy to plan an unusual anniversary. Maybe you can invite your guests to come on a river rafting trip or take the plunge and go bungee jumping? If you do decide to do one or the other or both make sure someone have a camera going to record these memories forever.

After everyone is done risking their lives, feed them and feed them lots of good foods. Anniversary themed paper supplies can make the party very easy to clean up after a hectic day, so look into getting some classy silver or gold colored plates, cups, napkins and a tablecloth. To make the anniversary even more fun, you can toast everyone with LED light up wine glasses. They’ll light up the night when the sun goes down and your guests are still celebrating. Later, you can just let the guests take them home as special party favors.

If you do want to give out something more to the guests for holiday party favors nothing beats small trinkets. They are easy to carry and can fit into a small bag. Candles are probably the least expensive and personalized items like card decks, key chains and pens the more expensive gifts.

Perhaps nothing is more romantic than an Anniversary Party. And while the sweet, significant core of the anniversary festivity remains timeless and eternal, the specifics of this celebration have changed dramatically over time. The conscientious planner must always keep up with the times.

In medieval times, couples marked only major milestones like the 25th and 50th anniversaries; the husband would gift his wife with a silver wreath to mark 25 years of marital bliss, and a gold wreath to celebrate a union that had lasted a full half-century. The wreath represented the eternal circle of the couple's love.

As time progressed people started to acknowledge marital milestones such as the 10th anniversary, the 20th, etc., until finally people just broke down and admitted that any amount of time spent legally wed is a verified cause to celebrate!:) Every year together is a substantial milestone in a couple's life.

This is especially true today, as soaring divorce rates are causing people to honor couples who have stayed together even five years. And they may even host celebrations for cohabitating couples who, while never saying “I do”, have shared many years together. After all, modern love exists in a variety of forms. Anniversary bashes may also be celebrated for same sex couples, and the occasional single or divorced person has thrown an anniversary party to honor their individual freedom. They are most certainly entitled to their own special observance.

Lists of suggested gifts, both traditional and modern, are available for those who want to give just the right thing (such as paper or clocks to mark the first year of marriage, ivory or gold jewelry to acknowledge the 14th, diamonds and gold to mark the 75th, etc.); and while these gifts vary greatly as the years pass, all anniversary celebrations are typified by food, drink, music, laughter and good times. Plan the ultimate Anniversary Party today! Pick durable items that will last longer and laminate paper ones to reuse at future gatherings. Use fragrance to set a mood by burning scented candles and even incense. Pick durable items that will last longer and laminate paper ones to reuse at future gatherings. The history of Anniversary has different interpretations by each person, so use your own judgement. Share these facts with friends at a celebration.
