A Breakdown of Traditional Anniversary Colors

Happy Anniversary!  We say this all the time, but, did you know that there are official colors correlated with each anniversary year? This helps us festively mark the milestone of a given passage of time.
 
These colors can be used in gifts, decorations, invitations, lighting,  food, drink, linens, favors, and flowers, or any party planning you desire.  The season during which you were married will also dictate how you incorporate color into your celebration. In the spring and summer, for instance, certain flowers, bushes, and trees are blooming. You can identify the color literally on an object, or figuratively as part of a theme, (Blue Skies, Out of the Blue, Men in Blue, Blue Pencil, Bolt from the Blue, Blue Blood, Blue Ribbon, Once in a Blue Moon, Blue Collar, Green Thumb, Green Light, Grass is Always Greener, Silver Spoon, Silver Screen, Silver Platter, Golden Opportunity, Red Light, Roll out the Red Carpet, Paint the Town Red, Red Hot,  Rose Colored Glasses, Tickled Pink, White Elephant,  Black Tie, Black as Night, Pitch Black, In the Black,  Dark Colors, Flying Colors, True Colors, etc.) You can use the color of your particular anniversary year, or, multiples of your anniversary year, or, even every color of every year you’ve marked.
