50th Wedding Anniversary Party Favor Ideas

Updated on October 25, 2011

A 50th wedding anniversary party is a once-in-a-lifetime event celebrating years of memories, trials, and successes. The party favors for such a party should be a keepsake that guests can take home to remember both the party and the honored couple. You can buy personalized party favors from online sources such as and, or you can handcraft your own party favors using supplies from craft stores.

Party Favor Boxes

Small, sturdy boxes hold mints, candies, or chocolates, and they are a keepsake guests can take home and use for jewelry or trinkets. You can buy personalized boxes, or you can personalize them yourself by stenciling a monogram on the lid and tying it with a neat bow.

Tea Light Holders

Small tea light candles are lovely on a table in front of each place setting. Buy small frosted glass tea light holders and personalize them. You can order ribbons with the honored couple's names on them. Wrap a ribbon around each tea light holder, and insert a candle inside.

Candy Dishes

Like tea light holders, small candy dishes look nice at each place setting. They can be filled with mints during the party. You can also prop place name cards up in front of the candy dishes to inform guests of seating arrangements. After the party, guests can take their candy dishes home as party favors.

Personalized Tea Tins

A personalized tea tin can be used over and over again to store tea bags, and each time the tin is used, guests will remember the anniversary party. Using a label-making program, design square labels that include couple's picture, names, and wedding date. Print the labels and center them on the tea tins. Fill the tea tins with the couple's favorite tea bags.

Salt and Pepper Shakers

A set of simple salt and pepper shakers makes a lovely party favor because, again, they'll be used over and over and will remind guests of the party. Salt and pepper shakers are also reminders of how two different people can make such a wonderful pair. Tie ribbons around the tops of the shakers, and place them in small, monogrammed boxes to be handed out at the end of the party.
