Keeping Children Entertained At Your Reception

  • Posted on July 23, 2011 at 4:36 pm

Dream Group Productions has come up with these great tips for keeping the youngsters busy and happy at your wedding reception:

  • Arrange kids meals with the venues which vary from chicken fingers and fries to smaller portions of the regular meal being served pending the kids ages.
  • Have a special kids only table (with kids 6-12) and instead of having a fancy floral centerpiece use a basket filled to the brim with fun treats such as bubbles, stickers, stamps, skipping rope, puzzles, crosswords, games, etc. Your local loonie store is a great resource.
  • Have a special movie room set up with pillows, sleeping bags/blankets and a DVD player/TV playing Pixar/Walt Disney classics… and serving popcorn of course!
  • If there are several kids between the ages of 3-6, you may wish to have a babysitter on hand to corral the kids, play games, and keep an eye on them.
  • Even though it’s the adults that tend to get the most excited about them, Sundae Stations and Candy Stations always go over well with the kids.
  • You may wish to hire an entertainer like a magician or balloon artist to entertain kids. This is only suggested if have 15 or more kids between the ages of 3 and 10 attending the wedding.

Great Ideas For A Sit Down Dinner At Your Reception

  • Posted on July 20, 2011 at 3:06 am

Why don’t you try…

  • Leaving a chair open at each table for the host (and/or hostess) to visit with their guests (This works best for smaller events. If the event involves over 200 guests, 20 tables is a lot to visit.)
  • Having guests move to different tables for dessert and coffee to encourage mixing groups.
  • I also prefer to assign tables not seats. I find this to be more organic (and less controlling).
