Red wicker hearts by Maria Panayiotou
These red wicker hearts would make a great decoration in all sorts of places at your 40th anniversary party. They could be hanging on the door to welcome your guests or just liek this photo they could be hanging on the trees outside. If you were renewing your wedding vows you could have these as pew end decorations. Or you could hang them from the ceiling or the backs of your chairs at the party.
Red ribbon table by Tracy Hunter
Love the very subtle use of red at these party tables, a small red ribbon with a flower at each place setting and on the favor boxes. Plus delicate red flowers scattered on the table.

Red roses are the flower of love, but they can be expensive. This table centerpiece uses 3 red roses and then additional color is added with the scattering of red rose petals.
