This year, I celebrated 18 years of marriage. It’s a milestone, for sure! But, it also made me reminisce on one of my favorite celebrations, a clients’ Golden Anniversary. I got to plan this couple’s daughter’s wedding a few years ago, so I loved working with this family again. In fact, it’s one of my favorite parts about being a planner!
Surrounded by friends and family (another one of my favorites), this happy couple toasted to 50 years of marriage – something equally important and inspiring, and edified by the guests whose lives they touched in some way or another. We created an atmosphere perfect for catching up and having fun together!
I wanted the golden theme to really shine, so I designed an all-white celebration in a chic and clean modern space that left plenty of room for sparkling details and touches of personality. We started with linens that carried plenty of gorgeous, touchable texture and topped them with simple flowers framed by big balloons trailed in gold streamers.
The delicious food was served buffet style in tailored white dishes offering guests a little taste of the honored couple’s favorites, and leaving no appetite unsatisfied! A fun dessert display showcased treats from decadent, luster-dusted sugar cookies to adorable bite-sized cupcakes, rich, fruit-topped cheesecakes, toasted merengue tarts and more.
The theme carried through at the tables and on the dance floor with the guests all dressed in white and full of energy. We added personal touches for guests to enjoy through artful displays of the couples’ wedding photos – a fun way to remember a very special day. Guests signed gorgeous gold playing cards for the two card sharks to treasure, and we installed a vibrant 3D gold backdrop as a stylish photo op to capture memories from the party.
The details didn’t stop when the celebration ended. In fact, we ended the night by sending everyone home with a keepsake to accompany their new, gilded memories – a gold imprinted glass filled with stylish gold candy. It was a tasty toast to many more years to come!
