Planning a 'big birthday party for around 50 people and would really love some ideas to make it stand out and make people feel welcome and/ or entertained!
So far I've got a DJ with small dance floor and will do our own buffet so will have 6-8 tables with something pretty on it.
I'd love some ideas for extras I could do... don't like the sweet cart idea but anything along these lines would be brilliant. We've had a really rotten few months and I just want something lovely to look forward to and know my nearest and dearest have had the best time possible too 
Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Hire a waiter/waitress for the evening to keep the drinks flowing, clearing the tables etc. Keep it fun with a bowl on each table with mini games like a rubix cube, mini connect 4, snap, brain teasers. Put them out whilst the wine is flowing and people will take them as gifts, or play with them. smile

That's a great idea, thank you.

A little quiz? Country dancing (I’m thinking Gavin and Stacey Stacey’s mums party!) more importantly : toffee vodka shots!
