Having a kid-friendly wedding? We've got some ideas to keep the kids happy.
Kid-Friendly Wedding IdeasWhether it’s entertainment options or pint-sized portions, check out our ideas to keep kids happy (and grown-ups happy) at your reception.
Kid-Friendly Care PackageA 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 CornerCreate 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.
Mini CheesburgersThese Mini Cheeseburgers are equally elegant and enjoyable. Place them on a sliver tiered tower with miniature pennant flags that match your wedding palette.
Salt-and-Pepper Oven FriesServe these Salt-and-Pepper Oven Fries in ribbon-tied bundles for a grown-up look but a kid-friendly taste.
Ham-Stuffed Biscuits with Mustard ButterMidday brunch or late-night snack, these biscuits are a kid-pleaser and a crowd-pleaser alike. Pile these high on a silver platter for effortless elegance.
Bacon-Grits FrittersFor a Southern soiree, try these Bacon-Grits Fritters for a heavy hors d’oeuvre. These fabulous fritters are easy for kids to grab and go.
Stuffed Baby PotatoesThese pint-size potatoes are perfect for kids (and parents). And while portions are small, they still pack a punch of flavor.
Mini Bacon and Potato FrittatasTry 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.
Smoothies PopsThese 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.
Easy and Elegant Cheesecake BarsGive the gift of creativity with these Easy and Elegant Cheesecake Bars by allowing each child to decorate his or her own. Leave a few pint-size aprons near the station to help with the icing fun.
