Creative Ways to Celebrate Your Golden Anniversary

The golden anniversary is a momentous occasion that any couple has reason to be incredibly proud of. Many regard this milestone as one of the most admirable ones you’ll achieve during your lifetime. As such, you want to make sure that your celebration is deserving of the occasion. Choosing how to commemorate those precious years spent together may seem difficult at first. However, whatever you do is sure to create memories that you’ll cherish for years to come.

It’s important to us that you and your loved one share a celebration that’s unique to your relationship. We specialize in creating gifts that pay tribute to the important moments in life, the ones we hold close to our hearts. We’ve curated a list of ways you can make the celebration for your 50th anniversary even more special. Use these for inspiration as you craft the perfect event. And remember, you don’t have to limit your activities to only one day. This is an important occasion, and we encourage you to fulfill your entire bucket list—no matter how long it takes.

Give Them a Sentimental Gift

Anything you give your loved one is sure to be special, so long as it comes from the heart. With that said, you want to put thought into the gift you choose. Though you cannot buy someone’s love through gifts, it’s certainly a meaningful move to make. An anniversary present is a physical representation of a nonphysical feeling. That said, Crystal Central’s custom engraved crystal 50thanniversary plaques are a great way to display you and your partner’s love for one another.

For example, couples who are strong in their faith are sure to cherish acrystal plaque with your names and loving words engraved onto the front. The golden accents on this Christian-focused 50th-anniversary gift serve to stand as a reminder of this important milestone.

Incorporate Violets

When Joséphine de Beauharnais married Napoleon, she wore a string of violets. As a reminder of his love for her, Napoleon gifted her a bouquet of violets each year on the anniversary of their marriage. Many call violets the official bloom of the golden anniversary, as the flower is a symbol of endless love. Show your devotion in the way Napoleon and may of those after him have by incorporating violets into your anniversary celebrations. Gift a bouquet to your loved one or place them in a vase on your table during an incredible dinner.

Learn Something New

You haven’t only reached your golden anniversary, but your golden years as well. It’s never too late to try something new, and now is the perfect time to do so. If you and your partner have a shared passion that you’ve always wanted to pursue, use your anniversary as the excuse to forge ahead together. Perhaps the two of you will take an art class together or learn to play an instrument. Whatever it is you choose, this is the time to explore something new.

Renew Your Vows

Many couples choose to renew their vows as a reaffirmation of their love for each other. This can be an intimate moment shared between you and your family. There’s no better time for a vow renewal than now—50 years after the day you first wed. A vow renewal is a wonderful way to celebrate the occasion with family and friends, as they’re likely to want to celebrate with you.

Come up with ways to weave the memories of your wedding day into the present celebration. After exchanging your vows, host a reception/anniversary party. Be sure to use gold decorations! Plus, if you have your original wedding toppers, put them on top of your cake to serve as the perfect finishing touch.

Create a Playlist

It’s common for couples to create a playlist with all their favorite songs. However, this year, consider getting even more creative with this endeavor. Make a playlist with 50 songs, one for each year of your marriage. When you play this back, you’ll be able to reminisce through all the times you’ve spent together. We recommend creating this list together so that you can share old memories as you choose your favorite hits from each year.

Take a Boat Ride

A romantic boat or ferry ride is a great way to spend some time in the great outdoors with your better half. The two of you can take this journey in the late afternoon and watch the sun as it sets on a day well spent. Bring your favorite dessert with you and pop open a bottle of wine established in the year you married.

Get Professional Photos Taken

Photoshoots are an incredibly effective way to commemorate and capture life’s auspicious moments. Many do so to memorialize events such as a child’s first birthday, an engagement announcement, and Christmastime. Ask friends if they know of any good photographers and get creative during your shoot. You could recreate your wedding photos or old family pictures with your children. Once you receive the final photos, create a scrapbook that chronicles your memories together.

See a Play

There’s something timeless about the theatre. When you’re there, you almost feel as time has stopped and the entire world exists inside of that one small room. It’s for this reason that the theatre has been a popular romantic activity for several decades. Keep an eye out for future productions a couple of months before your anniversary. This way you’re sure to get tickets for the show that speaks the most to you and your partner before they sell out. You’re sure to enjoy dressing up to the nines for a night at the theatre.

Have a Night Out of Town

The two of you should take a night away to escape the grind of daily life. Consider going somewhere you’ve never been before to experience something completely new. Whether you see the sights or merely order room service at the hotel, take a break from your daily routines. This time away will provide you the chance to wind down and catch up with one another.

Celebrate Each Other

Whether you throw an elaborate party or a enjoy a quiet night in, your golden anniversary is a precious symbol of your time spent together. We hope that you can take some inspiration from our list, but don’t forget the most special element of this day—you and your partner. Here at Crystal Central, we congratulate you and your spouse and wish you happiness in all the years ahead.
