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?
