Celebrating Wedding Anniversaries: Steel, Silk, Lace, and Ivory

Martha Stewart Living, January 2002

Steel The gardener in your life might need a spanking-new English steel spade; nongardeners might like to be reminded of their 11-year-old selves with a bag of glass marbles and a steelie.

Silk Hang up a new silk robe in the bathroom, and tuck an appointment card for a massage in the pocket.

Lace Give a silver lace vine (Fallopia aubertii) ready for planting on a trellis or garden wall; enfold the card in a lace handkerchief or doily.

Ivory Arrange a visit to a piano bar where you've tipped off the player to "your" song.
