1. Kids Table

Allow the little ones to get in touch with their inner artist and equip your kids table with craft supplies, packed with crayons, pencils, glitter and paper. Allow them to write a card for the Bride and Groom or simply draw until their hearts are content. You may also want to consider designing your own activity briefcases. These make a fun and exciting surprise for the kids. In your briefcases you can put bubbles, glow sticks, costume accessories and craft supplies, everything the little ones need to keep them entertained. Another great idea for your kids table would be to have an edible centerpeice. A chocolate bouquet what kid wouldn’t love that?
