    What are some good ideas for a 40th wedding anniversary party?

    Because the red ruby symbolizes being married for 40 years, a good idea for a 40th wedding anniversary party is to focus on items of that color. Red and white balloons for table centerpieces, red and white candles and a red velvet cake all fulfill this theme.
