Anniversary parties are a great way to celebrate the love two people have for each other. There are many wonderful ways to host your occasion. This article will focus on the best anniversary party ideas you can use for your next special occasion.

Marry Me

This is for couples who want to renew their vows with an anniversary party. You can also invite your parents and grandparents if they are around, and allow them to say their own vows to you. The couple may choose to have a more formal wedding, with guests and original attendants. Or, opt for a more intimate gathering, with just family members and close friends present. 

The Golden Anniversary

This theme is perfect for couples celebrating 50 years of marriage together. Celebrate your 50 years in style by serving gold-themed food, decorating in gold, and wearing golden attire! 

1950s Theme

Celebrate your 50th anniversary with a 50’s themed party. This decade was known for its rock and roll, cars, and classic films. This theme will be perfect for those looking for something new and different. Themed decorations, music, and clothing can easily be incorporated into the event. A 50s theme can be either formal or casual, making it a very versatile anniversary party theme.

Hollywood Glamour Party

Have an evening of Hollywood glamour and create a red carpet event that will make you feel like stars! The Hollywood glamour anniversary theme is one of the most popular themes that many people choose. This theme is all about making the event as glamorous as possible. The Hollywood glamour anniversary theme is perfect for events that are celebrating their 50th, 60th, 70th, 80th, or any other number of years together.

Retro or Throwback

A decade-themed party can be a fun way to celebrate an anniversary. You can invite your guests to dress up in the decade’s style. You can have them bring old photographs or memorabilia from that period. For example, if you are celebrating your 50th wedding anniversary, you could have guests dress in 1960s clothes and bring items from that era. Other decade themes: 

  • A 1970s theme will take you back in time with music, decorations, and food. You can even dress up as characters from that era if you want!
  • A 1980s theme will give you all of those 80s vibes with neon lights, funky clothes, and crazy hair.
  • A 1990s theme will take you back in time with 90s music and movies playing on TVs around the room. You can even dress up as your favorite 90s character.

After deciding on the decade, pick out some songs from that period and make sure plenty of decorations are available for guests to take home.


Casino-themed parties are a great way to celebrate your special event. Have your guests dress up in formal wear, sit down at the tables, and use tokens to play games. You can also have live dealers or poker tables for entertainment. This theme could have blackjack tables, roulette wheels, slot machines, and plenty of cocktails.

Hawaiian Luau

The Hawaiian Luau Party is a fun theme for people of all ages. Guests can enjoy an authentic luau-style pig roast, tropical drinks, and all the typical party food.
