Sweet Ideas for a Kid-Friendly Reception

Charleston wedding receptions have a tendency to be heavy on the sophistication (and adult beverages). As caterers and coordinators, we live for those things, but we also understand the importance of family too. We’ve put together a fun list of family friendly ideas for those of you who can’t imagine your special day without your favorite munchkins. 

Think Outside the Cake

Wedding cake is great, but sitting through a ceremony, first dance, toasts and a meal is an awfully long time for little ones to wait. Make other deserts available (like the milk and cookie bar featured below) that are sure to keep kids of all ages happy.

Keep the Kids Busy

Kids will be kids (especially after cookies and cake), so make sure they have something to do! We found some great tips on WouldntItBeLovely.com… 

  • Play lawn games (a bean bag toss, corn hole, croquet or bocci ball).
  • Create a kids table or corner with crayons, coloring books, games and snacks.
  • Designate a baby sitter.
