Hire a Cartoonist
One of the things you can do that is fun is hire a cartoonist. This is someone that will draw a cartoon sketch of your guests. This is a great keepsake for your guests to take home and it is a great way to entertain everyone, including the kids.
Play Some Limbo
This is entertaining for kids and adults which can be done in a small place and will not need a lot of preparation. This is a fun way to keep everyone entertained at your reception.
Have Fun with Karaoke
This is interesting especially if there’s an open bar. The guests are amused and the vocalist has lots of fun. Even if you don’t have an open bar, karaoke is fun for all ages.
Piñata is another interesting thought for everyone. Grownups and the children will have fun swinging and hitting the piñata. Kids will especially love this!
Lease a Photo Booth
