When planning for a 40th wedding anniversary party, the couple should feel and consider how they would like to honor their special day. Reaching a new year of marriage is certainly an occasion worth celebrating for. Reaching 40 years of marriage is definitely a celebration worth planning for!

Feel what you really want. Is it a formal sit down dinner with family and friends, a casual beach luau, or a simple outdoor barbecue? One can achieve their dream party by their ability to organize and plan ahead.

Formal occasions and casual ones need to run committees that will be assigned in budget, preparation, food, program, and a team to welcome guests. Budget is always considered to account how much and whose money will be used. Keep in mind not to miss good snapshots and video coverage to stop the moment from running away!

Sizzle up with a selection of 40th wedding anniversary party supplies to create a warm and passionate atmosphere! Start with the anniversary color of two magical elements that is associated with the symbolism of fire and blood implying warmth and life for mankind: ruby red. This is not just an old shade. No, it is absolutely undiluted, hot, passionate, powerful color that suggests power and passion.

With ruby red glitters, embellish it on flowers, centerpieces, balloons, and vases. Just be sparing on the decorations. Sometimes less is more. Fill the air with songs from the era of your marriage date, light some scented red candles, and serve it with red wine.

Most gift ideas for the traditional and modern ruby wedding anniversary are themed upon ruby, the undisputed ruler in the fascinating world of gemstones. Whether a ruby stud ring for husband, a ruby ring for wife, a ruby cuff links or a ruby tie pin, it all radiates warmth and a strong sense of vitality for those who are using it. Nasturtium, the ruby anniversary flower is a another idea where ones feelings convey what is true and passionate for their loved one. Alternatively, 40 red roses can represent what's untainted and pure. Ruby colored items are also being suggested like ruby red scarf, ruby red glass bowl, ruby red winter throw, ruby red colored frame with the couple's original wedding picture, and ruby red rimmed mugs.

Coming up with an entertainment is better to bring forth the party in gusto. Slideshows of some pictures highlighting the 40 years together including the wedding, homes lived in, the children, grandchildren, friends, places went together, etc are some of the 40th wedding anniversary ideas that must be incorporated . Have family members and friends tell stories and make speeches about the couple. Those who have talent like singing and dancing can perform.

Upon reaching for the moment of just the two of you together, jazz up a romantic aura in the bedroom with red sheets and a `Happy Ruby Anniversary' written in deep red on soft pillows. A trip elsewhere with Ruby in a name would also be better. What a splendid moment for a 40th wedding anniversary party!

You can also let the ruby color theme inspire your food choices eg red velvet cake, strawberries to be dipped in a chocolate fountain, a cherry desert etc.
