How To Personalize Your Own Anniversary Card

Anniversary cards are readily available from a variety of sources, including online. Here is my review of the top 5 websites to help you find Free Anniversary eCards online.

Of course, nothing is more romantic than making your own card or adding a personal wedding anniversary quote to an online or store-bought card. A good way to create a personal anniversary quote is to modify an existing, well-known rhyme.

One of my favourite rhymes to personalize for your loved one is:

"Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you!"

The trick is to modify the second half of the rhyme to suit your personal situation. Fortunately, it's pretty easy because lots of words rhyme with blue (thank goodness violets are not orange)!

Turkeys are Beautiful!

Turkeys are Beautiful!

Here is a real-life example that I used for our first wedding anniversary. When I was newly married a local turkey farmer was advertising his poultry on TV using the phrase "My turkeys are beautiful!". So, ever the romantic, I added the following rhyme into our first anniversary card:

"Roses are red, violets are blue, turkeys are beautiful, and so are you!"

I took a risk but it paid off ... believe it or not, it was a big hit and got a lot of laughs!

Here are some other versions to start your own creative juices:

  • Roses are red, violets are blue, love me so much, like I love you!
  • Roses are red, violets are blue, chilli is hot and so are you!
  • Roses are red, violets are blue, I don't want to spend a day without you!
