For another couple

Request an anniversary greeting from the White House. You will need to do this several months in advance. Request it through the couple’s U.S. representative or senator. His or her website may have a section called “Constituents Services” that will give you more directions. They will need the couple’s names and address, how to address them (i.e., “Dear Merrill and Marilyn” or “Dear Mr. and Mrs. Johnson”), the date of the anniversary, how many years they have been married and your name and phone number.

Present the couple with a huge bouquet of sixty diamond white roses at a small gathering to commemorate this milestone.
