    Kid-Friendly Care Package

    A Kid-Friendly Care Package is an easy way to ensure optimal enjoyment for the little ones. Include various toys and games that will even make the adults envious. Simple card games or Silly Putty (tablecloth allowing) will keep their attention. Skip the markers in favor of crayons, and give them disposable cameras to capture the night. Just be sure to ask for doubles of their candid pictures!

    Kids Only Corner

    Create a Kids Only Corner, complete with crayons (markers stain clothing, making moms mad) and crafts to keep the little ones entertained. You may even catch a grown-up trying to join the fun.

    Try these fun fritatas for a brunch reception. Garnish with chives and sour cream for easy elegance and full-bodied flavor. Their size (and the fact that they're basically a mini omelet) are sure to inspire kids to give them a try.

    These smoothies-on-a-stick are a kid-friendly alternative to cocktail hours. These pops are perfect for cooling down at sweltering summer weddings. And of course, you can always make a batch of grown-up-friendly pops.
