Entertainment Activities for Events

Reception Games & Activities: Fun Entertainment Ideas

As soon as we hear the word ‘party’, things like fun, adventure, memories, lights, liveliness, and activities click automatically. Regardless of the type of party that you are organizing, you can expect it to be successful or outshine other usual gatherings if you fail to add the X-factor by adding fun games and activities to keep it going.

Choosing activities and games for events is difficult in itself owing to the fact you have to consider several things like the type of event, demographics of your guests, location, etc. But it gets even difficult in sacred, idyllic events like a Corporate Event.

If you are looking for fun ideas, games, and activities to make them a part of your big day, we have got your back with the following ideas. Read on!

Table Games for Parties

1.      Write-up Games

The easiest and cheapest way you can make your event fun is by getting colorful cards or papers and some pens. All you have to do is get the stationary distributed among your guests and ask them to write something like:

  • A secret that they know about either of the new spouses
  • Wishes for the couple
  • Comments on things they don’t like or like the most about your party

Once the writing part is done, you can have some volunteers read the notes out loud. Both you and your guests will enjoy this activity thoroughly.

2.      Board Games

Board games are slowly becoming an integral part of activities incorporated in events. You can either choose a single board game and arrange it on every table or get different board games placed on the side of each table and allow your guests to play whichever they want to.

3.      Snap It Game

This game includes distributing a list of objects or people that is distributed to the guests. The guests will then use their mobile phones to snap those objects at our event venue. Arrange gifts for those who get done quickly and distribute them during the event only.

Games for Outdoor Events

On the off chance you have chosen an outdoor venue for your event, there is a wider variety of fun options that you can choose from. But make sure you don’t end up choosing the wrong game. And this can be done by considering things like the budget, location, number of guests, and available space.

The games that you can arrange for include the following:

  • Bean Bag Toss / Corn Hole
  • Ring Toss
  • Tic-Tac-Toe
  • Giant Yahtzee
  • Ladder GolfGiant Connect Four
  • Giant Jenga
  • Lawn Dominoes
  • Yard Pong

Have you ever experienced a balloon drop

Balloon Drops

Have you ever experienced a balloon drop? It’s so cool and brings out the child in you as you run around stomping on balloons! Remember the Democratic Convention and their balloon drop? Remember how the candidates frolicked in the balloons? Well, hopefully you are going to a really fun place that has a balloon drop ordered for their New Years shindig!

There are several types of balloon drops out there. They all do the same; it just matters what they are filled with.

These drops are filled with 11” balloons. When the drop opens, a ton of balloons come cascading down. This is the one you normally see. Some concerts have them as well, for the finale. This drop would be fabulous at any one of Venues of North Scottsdale’s venues!

The Multi-Size Balloon Drop

This raises the notch a few steps! We put different shaped balloons into the drop and the fun really begins when it opens. All these different balloons rain down and the crowds go crazy hitting all these different balloons back and forth!

The Lit Drop

This is the first of the more luxurious drops, One fourth of the balloons are clear in this drop, and each clear balloon has an LED light inside. All night, the drop bag is up in the air and you can see all these twinkling balloons. When the bag opens and the balloons come down, these little lights come cascading down and it really looks beautiful! There are certain tricks of the trade needed here for it to be successful and not hurt anyone.

The BIG drop

This drop is only filled with very large balloons. The size of the balloon drop bag obviously dictates how many balloons will be in. This makes a total statement! There may not be a lot of balloons that drop, but they are HUGE and definitely create an impression. We have put up to 50 of these in a single drop so just imagine 50 huge balloons first coming down and then going back and forth among the crowds. This is for really large areas with even larger crowds!

The Luxury Drop

This is the most expensive, most luxurious and most time consuming drop. I am dying for someone to order this baby! It is filled with round mylar (foil) balloons that look like beach balls. It is STUNNING to look at while it is up above, and it is incredible to watch it open and come down. I have tried to sell it a few times. No such luck yet! It was featured on The Voice I think and it was just something else!
