7 Unique Ideas For Celebrating Your 7th Wedding Anniversary
Traditionally the 7th anniversary is represented by copper or wool. Copper is a durable metal and according to Greek mythology attracts love and protects against evil. Wool, on the other hand, symbolizes warmth and comfort. Definitely a milestone in your married life together that should be celebrated, but just how do you come up with ideas to include one or both elements on this special day ?
Read on for some out of the box ideas to get you started.
1. Visit A Stately Home or Country House
You really do need to think outside the box for this one, but bare with us. Many large properties like Audley End have well equipped kitchens full of copper pans and kettles, and some even have estate farms with sheep that you can visit during the lambing season. One such place is Wimpole Hall in Cambridgeshire.
2. A Walk In The Woods
If your anniversary falls in the autumn, how about walk in the woods just enjoying all those autumn tones including copper ? Richmond Park is beautiful at this time of year with the added bonus of the deer rut.
3. Whiskey Distillery Tour
This one is definitely thinking outside the box, but did you know whiskey is distilled in a copper still ? Why not book a romantic weekend away near your favourite distillery ? Not only do you get to spend time together as a couple in a romantic hideaway, but you also get to visit your favourite whiskey maker, and maybe even make a purchase or two.
Rather than just going for the standard flowers or chocolates, how about a gift that will stand the test of time ? How about a picture or portrait like these from the fabulously talented Julie Connor ? Julie is a local artist based near Colchester in Essex who takes on commissions for your personal projects too.
5. Wax Warmers
Who doesn't love candles and scented wax melts ? Perfect for creating a romantic atmosphere for you and your loved one. These ones from Scents for You by Katy will look lovely wherever you place them in your home.
6. Copper Coloured Terrariums
For those that have a green fingered partner, how about these copper coloured terrariums from The Copper Cacti ? A wonderful gift with a difference for the plant over in your life.
7. Gifts wrapped with copper coloured ribbon
Sometimes you have to think outside the box if you want to follow a particular theme or have a specific gift in mind. So how about buying the gift you really want to give and then wrapping it and using copper coloured ribbon to finish it off ? This chocolate slab with copper coloured ribbon from Lisa's Chocolate Bouquets is perfect for the chocolate lover in your life.
