5 Easy Anniversary Decoration Ideas for Home

1. Candle Decoration

We are sure you’ve seen those enchanting candlelit pathways on Instagram. It’s time to recreate it. Set up a cozy nook by creating a canopy bed decorated with flower petals, fairy lights, mini chocolates, and velvet cushions. You can also scatter a few rose petals alongside the candle trail to guide your partner into the room. You can also take your special someone for a walk down memory lane by arranging your favourite couple pictures on the mantlepiece and interspersing them with candles of various heights to create a dynamic and memorable display.

 2. Table Setting

If you are shooting for a romantic anniversary dinner, it is important to set your table in a visually appealing way. A classic white tablecloth paired with silver and gold cutlery, coupled with a simple arrangement of fresh flowers housed in a sleek vase, should do the trick. Towering pillar candles perched in slender candle stands will also help create a warm and atmospheric setting so that you and your loved ones can enjoy a nice meal in the flickering light. If you are feeling a bit bougie, you can arrange champagne bottles and tie bows around their necks to create a lovely look. 

3. Centrepiece & Flower Decor

 Here’s a rundown on flower arrangements and centerpieces to leave your partner in awe:

  • Red Roses: No romantic setting is complete without classic long-stemmed red roses. Arrange a dozen or so roses in a crystal vase and use it as a delightful centrepiece.

  • Flower Ice Cubes: Fancy up your anniversary dinner by making edible flower ice cubes. Incredibly easy to make, you can make them beforehand. To get crystal clear ice cubes that are not foggy, fill up your ice trays with distilled water and immerse edible lavender flowers, mint leaves, roses, and lilac flowers. You can then fill up a bucket with these colourful ice cubes, and dump your champagne bottles too.

  • Heart-shaped Arrangement: Strategically placed flower petals and create a heart-shaped arrangement in the middle of the room. You can also form the heart out of flowers on a shallow dish or tray and use it as a table centrepiece.

5. Fairy Lights & Tea Lights Decoration

Create a soft luminous glow by hanging fairy lights in front of a sheer white drape so you and your partner can bask in the warmth. You can also arrange the fairy lights in a heart-shaped design. You can also set afloat tealights in a bowl filled with water and a few scattered flower petals to infuse your anniversary venue with grace. If you’ve created a canopy bed, you can also wind fairy lights around the bedpost.
