We are planning our 25th anniversary party for the end of October. It will be for about 80 people, and will cost about $100. Our church will allow us to use the basement for the celebration. I plan to have quilt squares cut out for our guests to sign, and later I will make them into a quilt.
Our decorating theme is Fiesta. A friend lent me her serape to hang up. The dollar store had some cute Mexican-style piggy banks in sunny colors; they also had honeycomb paper pineapples and toucans. I bought some streamers in complimentary colors to make flowers from. I will also make some miniature (ornamental only) burro pinatas to add to the table centerpieces.
First of all... congratulations! 25 years of marriage is quite an accomplishment. Wow. Your party sounds incredible and for only $100! I could never pull that off. Sounds great!
Pin-the-Tail-On-the-Donkey. Get a mariachi (as in marriage) record for background music. Hat dance record(?) for the Hat Dance--using a sombrero or old men's felt hat.
Pinata. Fill it with hard candies or teeny-weeny toys. Put a dime in some enchiladas for prizes.
Videotape everyone saying their best wishes. This is a great job for a kid.
Sounds great!!! Congratulations on 25 years of happily wedded bliss!! Mark "Happy Anniversary" or some emblem onto the bottom of one of the plates you have for your guests or under one of the chairs where they'll be seated. Have a door prize for the person who gets that chair or plate. The door prize could be one of your nice, homemade yummy sounding apple pies.
Mexican fiesta goods can be found in most party supply stores. To keep costs down, I would go with plenty of inflatables like cactus and Mexican themed posters. Red, green, and black balloons (for the Mexican flag) add plenty of color without spending a great deal.
