6 Tips for a 25th Silver Wedding Anniversary Party This Winter
Tip #1: SEND OUT PRINTABLE SILVER ANNIVERSARY PARTY INVITES
There are many templates to use for anniversary invitations. You can even find free paperless options to send out to your guests.
Tip #2: CREATE A SHIMMERING EFFECT ON YOUR TABLESCAPE
Choose table decorations with a shimmering effect such as mirrors and pearls. We suggest candle decorations incorporated into your table centerpieces. Simple, white pillar candles and tea tea lights laid out on a satin or organza table runner works beautifully when coupled with a scattering of sparkling silver sequins, faux snowflakes, and clear beads.
Tip #3: USE BUDGET-FRIENDLY BLOOMS
Stick with in-season flowers that won’t cost a bundle. Using chic glass vases, budget-friendly options like carnations and baby’s breath look amazing in the winter! You can also stick with silver manzanita branches (via Amazon) for a silver winter wedding anniversary party.
Tip #4: SAVE TIME WITH PRE-PACKAGED DECORATING KITS
We love the idea of pre-assembled decorations of festive balloons and confetti (via Amazon) If you are having a more casual event, 25th anniversary paper plates (via Amazon) and other similar supplies are a practical option. You can find these items via Amazon.
Tip #5: HAVE A SIMPLE WHITE CAKE AND DECORATE IT WITH A CAKE TOPPER
When serving a crowd of 20 or more guests, the cost of a fancy cake can add up! It is surprising that you can turn a store-bought sheet cake into an attractive piece by using a sparkly 25th anniversary cake topper like this one via Amazon.
Tip #6: SET UP A CANDY BUFFET STATION THAT DOUBLES UP AS A FAVOR TABLE
End your celebration on a sweet note with a silver and white candy buffet station with a wintry feel. Guests can serve themselves and there’s minimal clean up. Provide a variety of 5-7 candies purchased in bulk such as white bubble gum balls, silver foil-wrapped chocolates, silver Jordan almonds, white chocolates, and marshmallows. You can provide simple cello bags with silver twist ties or give something fancier in a white sachet bag.
