Your 40th wedding anniversary party! Close your eyes and imagine the perfect party, all your family and friends there to celebrate your ruby wedding anniversary.
With your 40th being celebrated with ruby it would be difficult not to include this beautiful red colour in your party theme.
When decorating your party you could use ruby as your main colour, great for a winter anniversary as it brings a warmth to the room.
Photo Guest Book
One really sweet idea at your party is to have your guests either sign a guest book with their anniversary wishes or have them sign the frame of a photo of the couple, that way it can be displayed all the time at home after the party.
This is currently available in our own online Anniversary Gifts Store.
Entertainment for your 40th wedding anniversary party should be anything you want; bands, dj, or if you have talented family and friends you could think about an open mic night. Remember to tell them about this before the evening!
You could theme your 40th anniversary party with either the color ruby red and ask everyone to wear something red. Or you could have a 1970s themed party! Go back 40 years and have the mini dresses, the tartan trousers, the flares and the great music you enjoyed in the 1970s.
Your music could be from the era and see if you can find some of you and your friends dressed up in all of your 70s finery!
Here are some real life 40th anniversary party ideas.
