Relationships require vulnerability, which takes time to unfold. That’s why the journey during which we share ourselves with our partner and others we’re closest to is worth celebrating. Every anniversary carries the weight of our memories together and the hope for future ones.
Anniversary parties are important celebrations because they allow couples and other loved ones to define their togetherness. What themes, food, decor and entertainment you choose to complement the couple’s story should be thought out and carefully considered. However, the most essential factor is the people you choose to celebrate with. If you’re planning a unique anniversary party, feel free to choose from the following ideas for inspiration:
Custom Fit Menus
Depending on the theme you choose, we can customize a menu to fit. Let’s say you’re celebrating the first decade as a married couple. We could create a theme around your honeymoon location and select styles of food and drinks to match. Maybe the location was a tropical one. We could easily concoct a surf-n-turf menu and colorful, rum-infused drinks you enjoyed on a beach to recapture the mood. Or tell us all about your wedding day. We could certainly incorporate a dish or two from your wedding menu.
If you’re looking for options that are lower maintenance and could be easily ordered and dropped off in a shorter time frame, take a look at our Takeaway Menu. We can have a delicious, home-cooked meal or assortment of sides ready for pickup or delivery. Couples will enjoy the range of options our takeaway menu has to offer.
If you’re looking for an intimate sit-down gathering with friends and family, choose from casseroles like chicken Florentine or vegetable lasagna. Don’t forget about our housemade marinara or bolognese sauces.
Platters are an anniversary party must. Guests can easily mix and mingle, converse and walk room to room with delectable platter bites scattered across their plates. Some of our favorites are the artisan cheese, cocktail sandwich, cold boiled shrimp and antipasto platters.
Other takeaways that your guests will enjoy are the smoked salmon lollipops, fruit kabobs, caprese salad skewers, mini beef wellington and brie and raspberry crepe.
We can’t emphasize enough how much your guests will enjoy our desserts. Our talented pastry chef can whip up a table’s worth of romance in no time. Did someone say chocolate dipped strawberries? And we promise that our mini bundt cakes are as delicious as they look.
There are so many ways to dress an anniversary party and turn it into a time capsule. You could put together a memory board filled with photos and sayings that showcase some of your most intimate and most hilarious moments together. And it’s always fun to fill an entire room with balloons and streamers.
If you need someone to help you arrange your home and fill in all your details, we can help.
Our planning team has an eye for design and an ear for your story. We would love to create custom centerpieces, ice carvings or heart-shaped cookies with you and your significant other’s initials engraved on them. Whatever you need to relax and celebrate—linens, glassware, tenting—we can bring and set up. Our friendly, professional staff has the tools to help you make sure your special gathering runs smoothly from start to finish.
What’s a party without entertainment? Couples who’ve spent 50 years together, we’re looking at you. Hire that DJ. Bring in that band. Make sure they play the songs you’ve enjoyed together. Finally, consider hiring a professional photographer to capture all the special moments. Not only will you be able to look back at these photos, but your loved ones will be able to hold onto them and share the memories too.
We have plenty more ideas to share with you and yours. Let us know how we can help make your unique anniversary party truly special!
