After celebrating the completion of 25 years together, couples generally wonder how they are going to commemorate their next anniversary milestone. Anniversaries are an opportunity for reconfirming commitment and romance as well as remembering the times spent together. By using some ingenuity and traditional associations, it can be easy for you to plan a memorable celebration of your 30th anniversary.
Since pearl signifies 30th wedding anniversary, it would be an exquisite decoration colour scheme for the party. However, you need not stick to hues resembling pure and shiny white. For example, Tahitian pearls are available in a wide array of shades such as black or grey with greenish or bluish overtone. Thus, there are several options you can choose from as the colour scheme for your party. If you wish to hike up the elegance of your bash, do not forget to incorporate bouquets of colourful sweet peas into your decoration.
Since pearls are found in the ocean, you can plan the party for your 30th anniversary with ocean as the theme. Hold the bash outdoors with streamers, balloons and patio lanterns, and make use of coloured sand, oyster shells and sea shells as extra table embellishments. Keep several dishes, appetisers and soups prepared with oyster and other seafood on the menu. As per traditions, oysters are regarded as aphrodisiac. You can even have a cake prepared in the form of oyster from any reputed baker dealing with custom cakes. If you do not like seafood, you can instead arrange for beach boardwalk stations serving fries, chicken sandwiches, hamburgers, etc. For entertaining your guests, organise games that would be enjoyed by adults as well as children, such as dunk tank, bean-bag toss and knocking down the cans.
A 30th anniversary bash can never be complete without a walk down the memory lane. And the ‘30 Things’ game is a great way to do that. Start by making a list of 30 of your favourite memories with your spouse and ask him or her to do the same. Once done, share the list with your spouse as well as invitees at the bash. Alternatively, you can pen down 30 things about your spouse that you love or 30 relationship goals you plan to achieve during the years to come.
