Search for local highly-rated restaurants or caterers with the word "diamond" in their names. Be sure to check the dietary restrictions of the anniversary couple when planning the menu, as the couple celebrating this event may have dietary restrictions.

Buy curtains made of crystal strands from a party store. Hang them at the party entrance, use them as a backdrop for a designated photo spot or drape them across the front of the table where the couple will sit. Decorate individual tables with bowls of crystals and photos of the couple throughout the years, displayed in crystal picture frames.

Play the couple's favorite songs in the background, interspersed with songs meeting the diamond theme, such as Neil Diamond and the Beatles' tune, "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds."

If the party is more than six weeks away, request an anniversary greeting from the White House to present at the party. Any couple celebrating an anniversary of 50 years or more is eligible to receive such a greeting.
