for the kiddos

When you have a flower girl like this . . .

Then how can you not design some high jinx + silliness at the kids’ table?

Start out with a playful place card- like this die cut wood plaque with calligraphy wood-burned name.

Lure them in with a fun party favor. Ours was a foundation of play foam (addicting stuff) topped with a plastic globe ornament (December wedding!) filled with silly band bracelets, glow-in-the-dark balloons, and other trinkets.

Switch up the centerpiece. Little folks don’t care about les fleurs, mes amis. We had our florist plant wheatgrass from which were “blooming” flower lollipops. You can imagine the reaction!

Let the centerpiece be lighthearted. Chargers = damage/not necesssary. Teak flatware was easy to grip, curly straws make everything taste better, who doesn’t love those wee birch pencils, and a craft paper topper made for lots of “art” throughout the night!
