Creative Event Activity Ideas

Today I wanted to share a few fun ideas for activities for your next event! I love when events have an extra little something to entertain guests. Whether you're throwing a corporate party, planning a wedding, or hosting a networking event, here are a few of my favorite things!

1 | TEMPORARY TATTOO BOOTH

I think a temporary tattoo booth is a carefree and fun idea for people of all ages at any event! It also makes for a nice ice breaker. Companies like Tattly have made it possible to get some ink without the pain and permanence. 

2 | LIVE SKETCHING 

Caricatures, live sketching or painting are ideas just about anyone could enjoy. They offer a unique way to get a new portrait of you with your loved ones, and they support local artists as well. Companies like Doodlebooth in Chicago offer live illustrating for events, and I always love to see how artists capture the personality of each person they illustrate.

3 | BOUQUET/BOUTONNIERE BAR

I love bouquet or boutonniere bars and I hope they never go out of style. Who doesn't love flowers? This idea gives guests a beautiful memento to enjoy in their homes or just jazz up their attire for the evening. 

4 | SEED BOMB DIY

Similarly, why not give guests something they can enjoy at home for years to come? This one requires getting a little dirty, but seed bombs are an amazing way to add beauty to the community! This would be an especially fun thing for an outdoor event that takes place in the community.

5 | LIVE SCREEN PRINTING

Hiring a screen printer to do live-printing at your event is a unique way to support the arts while also giving your guests something tangible to bring home. Screen-printing has so many material options; you can print on just about any flat surface including paper, canvas, tote bags, and t-shirts.

Have a great weekend, friends!
