Golden Indian 50th Anniversary Party

Party Recap

In October, we hosted a party for my husband's parents to celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary and his father's 75th Birthday. We hosted friends and family from five states for a fun-packed weekend. The anniversary party, at our house, was the culmination of the weekend, which also included a day at the races (Keeneland horsetrack), two casual dinners and a brunch. My in-laws immigrated to the United States from India over 35 years ago, so we wanted the party to place special importance on their Indian heritage. Also, in addition to adults, 10 children from the ages of 2-13 attended the party, so we wanted to make it as special as possible, but still fun for the kids.

The Decorations: I started by choosing a color scheme of jewel tones -- ruby red, peacock blue, royal purple and midnight blue. My father-in-law's favorite color is purple, so that had to part of the color scheme. The other colors were chosen to match the two saris used for decorations. One sari was cut into two pieces and used on the dinner tables. The second sari, my wedding sari, (which I didn't want to cut!) I wrapped and pinned around the dessert table. My husband's parents and aunt and uncle loved the use of the saris on the table for decoration.
