• Did You Know That #Pottery is the Traditional Gift for your 8th or 9th Anniversary?

    Depending on where you live, #pottery is the traditional gift for either your 8th or 9th anniversary. Why pottery? The history behind the gift is that pottery is a source of continuing sustenance. The pot carrying the water of life symbolizes the future of the couple.

    The historic origins of wedding anniversaries date back to the Holy Roman Empire, when husbands crowned their wives with a silver wreath on their 25th anniversary and a gold wreath on their 50th. In the 20th century, commercialism led to anniversaries being represented by a named gift. Not necessarily a gold or silver tiara, but something more practical.

    Which brings us to pottery. Even though it’s a traditional gift, why not put a modern spin on it and make your own? Come to #ClayCafeStudios and paint something together for your home. As a surprise, why not give a gift certificate to your spouse for a pottery date? You and your husband or wife could even paint something for each other to commemorate the day.

    Whether you stick to the tradition of giving a specific gift on a special anniversary or you just want to have fun, come to #ClayCafeStudios and we promise you will have a memorable day!
