Unusual Ideas

For a carnival feel, stilt walkers can circulate during drinks and, later, fire-eaters can perform for the guests.

Chocolate fountains, with a variety of dipping fruits and other treats such as marshmallows, can be hired for the evening - an opportunity for the guests to indulge themselves after they have finished dinner.

On hot summer evenings, ice cream vans can provide guests with something sweet after dinner and are a popular choice with children.

Mobile cocktail bars are an alternative to the expected beer and wine and become a focal showpiece, with professional barmen shaking drinks in flamboyant style.

Special entertainment, such as a clown or face painting, is a good idea if there are lots of children at the reception. This should take place in a separate area or kids-zone.
