A couple's wedding china takes a beating over a couple of decades of use. Likely a child or two will be responsible for diminishing the numbers of plates, cups, and saucers. This anniversary is an opportunity to add a few new sentimental dishes to the family cupboard. Children love fire-your-own-pottery shops.
For a china anniversary, enterprising relatives might encourage the kids to make custom dishes for serving breakfast in bed. The plate here reads, "Happy Anniversary to Mom and Dad, the coolest parents I'll ever have." Currant scones, jam, and tea round out the happy wake-up call.
