25th anniversary cake25 years of marriage deserves a celebration of the commitment and love that has made the relationship last.

Whether the silver anniversary party is hosted by friends or intimate family members, it should be an extra-special tribute to the married couple.

25th anniversary party ideas

The party theme? Silver, of course!

You can also opt for a special theme that the anniversary couple will appreciate, such as a travel theme or an 90's decade party in honor of the year they were married.

Local wedding reception halls would be happy to arrange a 25th anniversary party. You can also opt for a party room at a favorite restaurant in town. If your budget doesn't allow for a large gathering, consider hosting a cocktail party or weekend brunch at home to celebrate the day.

A scrapbook of photos and quotes, along with written tributes by loved ones, makes for a very special presentation for this milestone anniversary.

If you're handy with a home computer, also consider a Powerpoint photo slideshow. Or how about a major movie documentary created using a video-making program? (Remember to include early photos of the happy couple!)

A special ceremony renewing the marriage vows is sometimes also included on the 25th, which can either be performed in a house of worship or take place at the party celebration. (Bring tissues!)

25th anniversary gift ideas

Silver is a natural choice when planning your decorating theme, and silver is also the order of the day when it comes to gift giving.

Silver or silver-plated photo frames, vases, engraved silver wine goblets, a silver tea set, a silver champagne bucket, silver candlestick holders, or vintage antiques are among only a few ideas that make for great silver wedding anniversary gifts.

Don't forget the silver wrapping paper, ribbons and bows!
