Inspiration: The Children’s Table

Wedding Planning | By:cocomelody

If you decide to have kids at your wedding, it’s important to prepare and plan ahead to make sure that they’re entertained throughout the festivities so that their parents can have fun without constantly worrying about them. Also, there’s nothing quite like a bunch of screaming and crying kids to ruin a perfectly good party! Luckily, it’s pretty easy to keep the youngest guests happy and occupied with some good old-fashioned kid-friendly fun. From providing a designated kids-only area to the unyielding power of some coloring materials, here are some great ideas on how to create a stress-free wedding reception for young guests to enjoy:

Having a designated kids-only area not only keeps things more organized, but it also allows the younger ones to feel more appreciated and special!

Giving the kiddies some fun activities that are wedding related not only keeps things festive, but it’s also such a cute way to include them on your big day!

Have some toys at the table, such as Legos, are a creative way to keep their hands occupied at all times!

Let’s face it, children with coloring materials almost always end up shading way outside the lines! If you’re worried about some Crayola scribbles on the table, a great idea is to use a disposable paper table cover instead.

Provide activity boxes for the kids to keep them busy throughout the reception. Great things to include are coloring books, crossword puzzles, some snacks and small toys!
