What are some great ways to celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary?

We need ideas for something special for our parents.

We gathered at a local scenic gorge by a waterfalls and my parents renewed their vows to each other on their anniversary. Then we drove to a hot air balloon launch area nearby - something they always wanted to do. It was beautiful and something they will always remember.

The best thing to do is arrange a family get together. What you should do is book a banquet hall and help celebrate their anniversary like you would a big wedding ceremony.

To celebrate, arrange a vowel renewal and invite the couple's family and friends. Afterwards, host a reception/annversary party. The traditional gift for 40 years is ruby, so use the deep red color in decorations. Include red flowers and complete the celebration with a red-accented wedding cake. Make the cake a replica of the original if possible.

Maybe you can throw them a surprise party and invite a lot of family and friends that they have not seen in a long time. Take pictures at the party and then make an album of all of the pictures that you took to remember the party.

Contact lots of people they have known through the years and ask them all to write a note -- with pictures if they have them -- for an album you will put together. Make sure they send their input to you and you keep it a secret. Have a surprise party with as many of these people as you can.

This is the ruby anniversary. The flower for this anniversary is the nasturtium. So, incorporating these into the celebration is a good idea. Ruby colored wine, wine glasses, dinnerware..

This is the ruby anniversary. A party to celebrate can be given with rubies somehow worked into the theme. Or a romantic get away for two for a weekend would be great.
