About 67th Wedding Anniversaries
Like the roots of a hardy and verdant tree, your married bond remains strong and deep as you celebrate your 67th wedding anniversary.
Appropriately, the gemstone associated with this impressively long-lasting milestone is the star sapphire, which signifies commitment and fidelity. It is also believed to promote the spiritual energy of power, as well as astuteness, and to generate prosperity and help sustain the gifts of life.
Gift Ideas for the Couple
As for wedding anniversary gifts, a star sapphire set in a ring or brooch, or cufflinks or a tie pin, would make a truly thoughtful present for your partner or another celebrating couple – parents, grandparents or friends.
The traditional colour associated with the 67th anniversary is purple. This is classically significant of luxury, so why not treat the special couple to a moonlit river cruise along one of the many picturesque European waterways. The Thames, Danube, Volga, Rhine or Douro, for example… all stunning river journeys that offer guests the opportunity to dine on deck in grand style and star-gaze the nights away.
There are no specific flowers customarily symbolising the 67th anniversary, but you can never go wrong with a bouquet of lavender roses and lilies. Of course, it doesn’t necessarily have to be flowers: alternatively, you could give the couple an evergreen shrub for the garden or an attractive plant for the house.
These days, you probably prefer a more sedate celebration than adventure activities or robust partying. So how about afternoon tea at The Ritz London? This would not only make a pleasantly elegant celebration for 67 years of marriage, but could also be enjoyed with other members of the family.
Afternoon Tea at the Ritz
A quintessentially British experience, in one of London’s most sophisticated settings, afternoon tea at The Ritz is usually served daily at five sittings (from 11.30am to 7.30pm).
- The menu includes a selection of finely-cut sandwiches, freshly-baked scones with Cornish clotted cream and strawberry preserve, and a range of pastries and teacakes.
- Tea is served in the Palm Court, a dining area that features glittering chandeliers and elegant mirrors which add an elegant flourish to the room.
- In addition to a choice of 18 different types of loose-leaf tea (including the exclusive Ritz Royal Blend Tea), guests can savour a glass of Champagne to add even more sparkle to their wedding anniversary celebration.
- The Ritz London has a certified tea sommelier who travels around the world to tea plantations to source the hotel’s blends.
- The stylish ambience is enhanced by a musical ensemble of The Ritz’s resident pianist and harpist.
