Celebrating an anniversary with flowers.

Anniversaries are often very personal events you wish to celebrate or mark in some way.  This could be a wedding anniversary or a death but for whatever the occasion you wish to mark, making the moment personal is an important aspect of the celebration.

For wedding anniversaries, there is a tradition of giving something of increasing value each year to mark off the time spent married.  These are traditional gifts which vary from country and give rise to names such as “Golden wedding anniversary” (which means 50 years of marriage).

This varies between countries (for example in the United States, the modern tradition is to give a clock on the first anniversary, and electrical appliances on the 4th anniversary).  There are also traditional flowers which can be given to celebrate an anniversary.
