Set The Mood With Anniversary Centerpieces That Sizzle
A marriage that has lasted the test of time deserves to be celebrated. Whether you’re celebrating your first, 25th or 50th wedding anniversary, you can add a spark or some flair to the occasion with these festive centerpieces.
Candlelight Cuisine: For that intimate dinner party for two, you’ll definitely want to include candles. They bring a beautiful glow to the night that can only be exceeded by your love for one another. A great way to get the sparks flying is with an elegant wrought iron candelabra centerpiece. Holding three candles at various heights, the night will be set on fire when you place additional tea light or pillar candles around the room.
She Said Red: The universal color of love, red adds romance and drama like no other color can. Make a bold statement with red tablecloths, dinnerware and other dÃ©cor. Top it off with a daring red heart-shaped vase filled with rich red flowers.
Smoke and Mirrors: No, this is not the name of a magic show, but it does make a great theme for a 25th wedding anniversary. The natural silver color of mirrors combined with the reflective nature of the glass make it a stunning accent to your dÃ©cor, especially when it is paired with smoke gray accoutrements. It’s a stylish combination that can be elegantly displayed with floral centerpieces resting on mirrors or even a mirrored vase full of beautiful flowers.
Golden Rose: When it comes to celebrating your 50th, nothing less than gold will do. Shimmering through the years like each precious memory you’ve shared, gold-kissed decor can be highlighted with gold picture frames used as place card holders. But to really make a statement, create a unique centerpiece with real roses dipped in 14k gold for a spectacular finish.
Funky, Fresh and Fun: Add an unexpected twist to your decor with unusually shaped vases. From over-sized wavy-stemmed martini glasses to connected globe vases, there are all sorts of designs made of glass or metal to make your centerpieces sizzle. They’re perfect for chic cocktail parties or lively celebrations with a tropical touch.
Vertical Limit: Raise the bar with your centerpieces by placing them high above the guests’ view with elegant, tall vases filled with floral or candle arrangements. They’re perfect for large parties and banquets because they make a stunning first impression as guests enter the room and won’t get in the way of conversation while they’re at the table.
As a final touch, add some unique anniversary favors to add elegance to your tables.

Vertical Limit: Raise the bar with your centerpieces by putting them high over the visitors’ perspective with exquisite, tall vases loaded with botanical or light plans. They’re ideal for extensive gatherings and meals in light of the fact that they make a dazzling early introduction as visitors go into the room and won’t hinder discussion while they’re at the table.
