Celebrate 50 golden years of marriage with a traditional or modern floral bouquet or centrepiece.

The yellow rose is the more traditional flower given for the golden anniversary.

Violets

For a traditional gift of flowers, present a nosegay of wild violets. Tie the bouquet with a golden ribbon. Set lavender, white and purple African violet plants in a row on the anniversary-banquet table. Cover the plant pots with gold foil for an elegant touch.

Golden Yellow Mix

The classic yellow rose is the modern-day golden anniversary flower. Display 50 roses in a large glass vase or centrepiece for the couple. Set a full-bloom rose matched with a rosebud in a simple bud vase for a gift or table decoration at the celebration for the couple. Give the couple a corsage and boutonnière of yellow roses, golden ribbon and baby's breath. As a gift, create or order a golden-anniversary bouquet with mixed yellow flowers and roses.

Mixed Flowers

Mix the traditional violet colour with yellow flowers for a modern 50th wedding anniversary arrangement. Combine purple lilacs, white snapdragons or glads, yellow carnations or lilies with yellow roses in a basket or glass container. Use potted violets set in a large floral centrepiece of mixed flowers and deep yellow roses. Order a fresh or silk floral arrangement that uses the flowers the bride carried on her wedding day. A florist can custom-design a silk or fresh floral replica of the bride's bouquet.
