Anniversary Gifts & Colors

In Bridal Madness: Vintage Bridal & Baby Shower Party Plans, I show off some scans from vintage publications -- mostly mocking them. But one page, from The Bride’s Party Book (published by Dennison), has a "Dates To Remember" list. This page not only has the traditional anniversary gifts (paper for the first anniverary, etc.) but "suggested colors to use for each"; I'm guessing the colors are for gift selection as well as colors for party decorations.



I always find it a bit sad that after the 15th anniversary, anniversaries are not list for each year, but are then acknowledged in five and even 10 year increments. Is say the 19th year, the 34th or the 62nd any less special and remarkable?

This is a neat idea for a blog. Especially for you as you so often have those old ads and such from 50 years ago.

Our 1st anniversary is right around the corner and my hubby is still trying to find something great to give as a paper gift! I'm thinking it will be a book cause we love to read but I know he wants to find something really unique!

Thanks for this!

I love your blog. Just one quick "huh?" thing about this post. When I try to click the first link it takes me to a Russian online dating site. Color me confused.
