Most pastor and wife anniversary celebration ideas are probably heavy on church influence, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Beautiful verses of scripture inscribed on a banner, for instance, or delicate crosses covered with flower garland can be featured parts of the décor, but why not think outside the box?
For example, if your pastor and his wife love to travel, consider using decorations themed to the countries they’ve visited. You could decorate each table for one of the 50 states that means something to the happy couple and the feature food stations representing a region they’ve lived in or simply loved. For example: Shrimp and grits if they made a stop in South Carolina, lobster rolls for New Englanders, avocado salad for the California connection, quesadillas for the Texans. The possibilities are endless.
