AUTHOR: BEC OF 'FOR EVERY HEN'
After a sweet party game? One that works for a huge range of events (not just hen parties and bridal showers)?
Let me introduce you to 'The Jar'.
The sweetest game there ever was, this jar will end up holding memories that will last a lifetime! Read on to learn more.
PLAYING THE 'JAR' GAME
YOU WILL NEED:
An empty jar (obviously!), some small pieces of paper and pens.
On a table, set up your empty jar alongside some paper and pens. Make sure this table is easily accessible so that guests can participate in the game throughout the party. That's it - done and dusted until everyone arrives!
HOW TO PLAY:
Once everyone has arrived at the venue, let them know that there is a special jar sitting on a table. This jar is currently empty, but by the end of the celebration you expect it to be overflowing.
Because this jar is all about remembering the good times!
Each time a guest experiences something funny, sweet, nice, fun, etc. throughout the day/night, they have the chance to write it down and place it in the jar. Over time, these notes will build up to create a wonderful picture of the celebration - through the eyes of bride-to-be and guests' alike.
Following the event, your bride-to-be can then re-live the BEST times, over and over again!
Hen Party Warning: Imagine the stories and funny notes as the night goes on... the more drinks downed, the more outrageous they'll become!
ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO PLAY
A GAME WITHIN A GAME
Encourage everyone to leave little notes by turning it into a competition! Hand out short checklists with different types of memories to be recorded. For example, 'a funny moment', 'a sweet moment', 'something that made me happy cry', 'something that surprised me'. The first to write notes for each of the items on their list gest a cheeky prize. But the overall winner in all of this is the bride, who will have even more to look back on!
Add a clock to the table and ask guests to record the time at the top of the paper when they write their note/s. After the event sort messages into time order, meaning you can re-live moments as they actually happened!
