We are planning a 60th anniversary reception for our Mom and Dad. We are in need of suggestions/ideas for food. We are looking to being thrifty, but also having something that everyone will like.

So they were married in 1950? Search "recipes from 1950". You will probably get all kinds of recipes that bring back memories, and are very $ friendly, even for a group. Good Luck!

I am throwing grandma and grandpa a surprise 60th anniversary party. I plan to have it on the 4th of July so I can combine the parties and so it will be a surprise. I plan on having it at my house. Does anyone have any ideas for the party or unique gifts ideas?

Maybe you can have a 1940s theme since that was the time your grandparents got married and it would bring back some nice memories. (05/22/2006)

Seems like you already have a great idea in combining it. Make sure you have 60 fireworks.
Presents can be gift certificates to their favourite restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Favourite food items that keep well is another good gift idea. They already have enough trinkets after 60 years of marriage. Phone cards also work well, to keep in touch with friends and family. Hope this helps and have fun.

60th Anniversary Party Ideas

I recently went to a 60th anniversary celebration. The children had a very large frame with pictures of the couple (including some singles of the couple when they were children). The white mat was cut for each picture and the year that each picture was taken was written under each picture on the mat. A 5 by 7 of the couple on their wedding day was centered in the frame. This gift was on an easel for display. The bride's wedding dress was on display on a form, too. (05/22/2006)

How about a search on the internet for price of things, popular songs, president, etc, for the year they were married? Then you could add the same for now? Then print it out and put in a nice frame. (05/23/2006)

60th Anniversary Party Ideas

For my grandparent's 50th anniversary I took 2 8x10s, one of their wedding photo and one recent one and mounted each into an 11x14 mat and set them on easels for the guests to sign with memories. These were framed and given as a gift.

Since it'll be on the 4th of July, I would do a patriotic theme of course, but with more of a vintage WW2 type of feel since they would have been newlyweds at that time. Maybe incorporate some of their interests as well. My grandparents travel quite a bit so we used large maps and globes as decorations. My grandfather was a state representative and is a great Republican so we used small elephants on tables and there was a donkey pinata for the kids. My grandmother was in to the Girl Scouts and was a troop leader for many years so I hung up old uniforms and book covers up, too. My aunt had all the grandkids decorate a quilt square that she made into a quilt.

Ours was very personal and inexpensive affair. Most of the decorations were things we had or made. It was a great day celebrating the life of 2 wonderful people. The portraits matted with memories and the quilt are on proud display in their home 8 years later.

Good luck. (05/23/2006)
