If your centrepieces aren't rented or you don't want to keep the ones you've bought, you'll need a way to get rid of them.

FB Advice: If you have people that you would like a centrepiece to go to, there are certain games that can be fixed, like: Characteristics, Early Bird Catches the Worm and Twist the Night Away. It's a great idea to keep the boxes that the centrepieces were delivered in for transportation later.

CHARACTERISTICS

Under each centrepiece put a piece of paper with different descriptions of people on them, such as: shortest person, longest legs, woman wearing the most makeup, oldest person, oldest person, drunkest person, etc...

CLOSEST BIRTHDAY

The person with the closest birthday to the wedding date

EARLY BIRD CATCHES THE WORM

We gave the centrepieces to the first person that sent their response card back from each table.

HIDE 'N' SEEK

Put a piece of paper with word "winner" written on it under one plate at each table. Be sure to have the centrepiece game before the dinner plates are removed. Or put a sticker under one chair at each table.

FB Tip: after you place that one item at each table, be sure to tip or turn a chair backwards. That way you’ll know which tables are already done.

HOT POTATO

A - Almost like musical chairs. The DJ will ask that one person at each table grab a napkin and when the music starts this napkin gets past around the table. Whoever is holding the napkin when the music stops is out. The last person standing wins but sometimes the person that started the game wins or the person sitting to the left or right of the supposed winner wins.

B - Similar to the hot potato, except that everyone had to stand up. At each table, a set of keys, a fork, a napkin, and a glass of red wine were passed around. When the music stopped, the person with the set of keys had to sit down. When the music stopped again, the person with the fork had to sit down, etc. Until the last object was the napkin, when the music stopped for the napkin, the people holding the napkin had to go on to the dance floor and do the YMCA facing the head table. After that, the MC said, "the people sitting to the left of the person with the napkin gets the centrepiece". It was a great ice breaker, and loads of fun, because it was unpredictable

LET'S DO THE TWIST

Everyone gets up. Guests from each table stay in their groups (together) on the dance floor. The DJ plays "The Twist", the B&G and parents split up & judge the dancers in their section of the dance floor (include the wedding party if you're having a big wedding), picking 1 winner or 1 couple from each group. Good way to wake everyone up after dinner.

LONGEST MARRIED COUPLE

The couple married the longest at each table wins.

MUSICAL CHAIRS

This is a great way to get everyone up and moving after a big meal. Gets the heart pumping and ready for dancing.

ONE OF THESE THINGS IS NOT LIKE THE OTHER

Everyone will have a little box with a chocolate truffle inside beside their plate. Then the DJ announces, whoever has the white chocolate truffle is the winner of the centrepiece.

YOU'VE COME A LONG WAY BABY

The person at each table who has traveled the farthest distance
