About 79th Wedding Anniversaries
When a couple reach their 79th wedding anniversary, it is abundantly clear that their love has withstood a remarkable test of time. The era when they married was one of swing ensembles and big bands, when men wore tailored suits pinched in at the waist, and women donned dresses with low or no backs. In short, it was all about style and elegance.
Gift Ideas for the Couple
A couple who have been married for 79 years will more than likely have been to just about everywhere they wanted to visit, and will have accumulated all the jewellery they desire.
So why not treat them to a poignant trip down memory lane? Find out where and how they met, and transport them back to that scene with a party themed around the fashion and music of their era. Cater for their favourite food, even if they insist it be a Chinese takeaway or fish and chips.
The perfect gift, after so many years together, would be time spent with family and friends. Organise a barbecue or afternoon tea, with the anniversary couple fondly welcomed (and thoroughly pampered) as the guests of honour, and present them with a beautiful bouquet of specially selected flowers expressing what they mean to you.
You could also create a new wedding album. Select photographs starting from the wedding photo and then every subsequent anniversary, annotated with romantic quotes or humorous comments recalling each occasion. This would make a wonderful gift for any couple, evoking beautiful memories and providing many hours of happy reminiscing.
For something a little more decadent, handmade chocolates and Champagne will be warmly appreciated by a couple celebrating their 79th anniversary and – better still – can be shared with them.
Whatever you do and however you celebrate, remember the words of George Sand… “There is only one happiness in life – to love and to be loved.”
