Nothing brings down a party like all the guests just sitting at their table and not interacting with others… At your next event try an interactive centerpiece. Put a different, guest engaging centerpiece on each table, and let the mingling begin!
For instance, one group recently did a music through the decades theme for their fundraiser, they had different trivia questions in the middle of every table.
Using cards from a board game asking questions is always fun too. Tic/Tac/Toe, Crossword puzzles and trivia games are always good to get your guests involved.
Another group put vases of different candies on each table and gave guests an empty favor box to fill.
Photos are another way to engage your guests. Black and white or vintage photos of your guests or yourselves are wonderful ice breakers.
Something this easy and inexpensive can really get the party started!
