This is Kelven Book of Canard Catering and Event Planning in New York City, here with tips on how to throw a 50th wedding anniversary on a limited income. No matter what your budget is, a couple celebrating the 50th anniversary deserves congratulations and recognition. All you need to do is get creative and ask for some help. Decide what your budget is and the tasks you can’t do yourself, and spend your money there. For the rest of the items, reach out to family and friends for expertise and help. For your invitation, ask guests to bring a fond memory and a photograph. Have them write the memory in the guestbook and affix the photo. For music, set an iPod to play music from the decade in which the couple was married. For food, create dishes that are inexpensive, tasty, and easy to make – something like a chicken pot pie. Just make sure that you create a vegetarian pot pie as well. If you can, create something that ties into their wedding. Perhaps recreate their wedding cake, and if not, a cupcake tier would be great. And, if you can, use their topper – I’m sure they’ve still got it. For beverages, think about an inexpensive sparkling wine instead of champagne, and that along with sparkling water is still very festive. For décor, it’s all about the color gold, so stock up in all things gold – it’s wildly available in December, and severely discounted in January. Try gold Christmas balls, gold pillar candles, gold votives – all things gold. Display photos from the couple throughout their years, and think about having a program that involves young children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Sit down with them – ask them things like, “I know Grandma and Grandpa love each other because…” Rehearse it a bit, write it down for them. It’ll be an adorable and memorable program. Above all, keep yourself organized. Keep a list of all the tasks, and make sure that everyone who has something to do knows when to do it. This is Kelvin Book, have a great party!
