So, You Want to Have Some Fun?

We encourage incorporating action stations into your wedding reception.  They are always a big hit and add an element of excitement to the party with the smells of the food and the sounds of the pans and fires.  Pop up action stations are a great way to entertain your guests while they wait for the bride and groom to arrive while their photos are taken.  The stations will force your guests to mingle which is a great way for them to meet for the first time.  Put a station close to the dance floor and watch the magic unfold!  Action stations can be tailored around the theme of the wedding or personal tastes of the bride and groom.  If you have a large number of children on your guest list, an action station just for them can be an excellent way to delight them as well as their parents.  I mean, who doesn’t like grilled cheese sandwiches, right?
