That’s so wonderful – 70 years together is a rarity for sure.

Maybe you could do some research in old newspaper archives and find headlines from their anniversary date in 10-year increments…ie: on their 10th anniversary (or 10th year…)"headline" happened….showing different changes in the world throughout their life together.

How inspiring, bellenga!  What a true testament for us all.

I think it would be really sweet to make a family tree of sorts, showing the generations that have sprouted forth from them over the past 70 years.  You could list all of the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  I’ve alway been inspired by this project and this one, too. (Both from dear Martha.)  That way you can have it framed and presented to them at the party.  You could also make it in a book format (and include photos and special messages) by using a program like Blurb.

They are going to LOVE whatever you do!  :o)

also maybe a faux time capsule from the year they were married. Or a "this day in history timeline" to look back on all the world has gone through during their marriage.

P.S. Wikipedia does a good this day in history
