The traditional color associated with a 35th wedding anniversary is coral, but jade is a modern choice for this milestone. In ancient times, coral was given because magical powers were associated with it. Coral also was believed to prevent sterility.
Color themes for a 35th wedding anniversary party can also be the sea coral colors of red and orange combined with the green of the jade gemstone. A green table cloth can complement a floral centerpiece that is red or orange in color. When giving a gift for this wedding anniversary, a spouse also may opt for jade or emerald jewelry instead of a sea coral piece.
