Five years is often referred to as a five-year anniversary. However, what if you want to celebrate this date for more than five years? You can, and a few ways of doing that are detailed here.
First, go out and buy a cake, a lot of cakes. It doesn't really matter which one you buy, but it should look delicious. The next step is to find someone who is close to you, or at least have an interest in your family or in your marriage.
Get them involved in the decision process, whether it be picking the theme of the cake or getting them involved in the decorations and even the food. By getting involved, you are giving them a say in how the date is celebrated. This will help set the mood and tone for the celebration to come. They may also be able to point you to an event planner who specializes in planning five year anniversaries.
You can get in touch with friends and family and ask for their help with decorating. If they have experience decorating cakes, they will know where to get some of the special decorating tools. Don't forget to get some of the special items needed to help with decorating the cake. Some of these may include icing tools, cake toppers, or edible flowers.
It may also help to get a cake from someone who is willing to cut the cake for you. This will not only give you a chance to watch it being made, but it will give you the opportunity to see the finished product before you buy it. This can make it a lot easier to tell if the cake you choose will fit in with your style or taste, which may be different than the style or taste you had when you were planning the cake.
Now that you have taken care of planning the party, you need to plan the food. When it comes to your party, you don't have time to spend on every detail, so you may have to put together a few things yourself. Plan ahead of time to decide what food you need, when you need it, and what kind of invitations or party favors you will need.
One idea is to make some homemade invitations or cards, and then use them as favors for the guests to take home as party favors. You can add a little bit of information about the anniversary or about the person who is celebrating the anniversary. You could also send a card with a short note asking for a short note of congratulations. For that, you will need to have your own personalized writing station and a pen.
Don't worry too much about the food, but you may want to consider buying some party favors to take home. When you go to the store to buy these, check online and get some ideas. You may be surprised at the variety of ideas you can find.
