Centerpieces are an essential part of any event as they set the mood and add to the décor. No matter what type of event you’re hosting, a wedding or a bridal shower, centerpieces are usually given away at the end. Games are a fun way to make the event more exciting and table centerpieces can be given to the winner! Our popular NJ wedding DJs can help with these centerpiece giveaways by announcing their top centerpiece games!
Here are some of our NJ wedding DJs favorite centerpiece games!
Long Centerpiece Games to Play:
Musical Money: One person at each table will be asked to take out a dollar bill and our popular NJ wedding DJs will play music. When the dollar has been passed around the table a few times, the music will stop and everyone will stop! Then our NJ wedding DJs will ask the person holding the dollar bill to stand up. Everyone standing has to play a game of “Simon Says”. After your guests play Simon Says, our popular NJ wedding DJs will say “Simon Says return to your table”. The person who took the dollar out of their wallet is the one who wins the centerpiece! Watch how your guests react when our popular wedding DJs NJ announce the winner!
Pass the Napkin: The napkin should be passed around the table until our NJ wedding DJs stop the music. Guests who are holding the napkin when the music stops are eliminated from the game. The centerpiece will be awarded to the last person standing!
Pass The Coin: Our NJ wedding DJs will ask everyone to stand up and one guest from each table will hold up a coin. Our popular NJ wedding DJs will then start the music and respectfully ask guests to pass the coin around the table until the music stops. When the music stops, whoever is holding the coin will be eliminated. Then everyone repeats! The last guest holding the coin wins the coin! The centerpiece will be given to the guest who contributed the coin. Watch how your guests react when our popular NJ wedding DJs announce the winner!
Bride/Groom Trivia: Our NJ wedding DJs will present a list of questions about the bride and groom to everyone in attendance. The centerpiece will be awarded to the person who answers the most questions correctly! Play this game to see who knows you the best!
Musical Keys: Our popular NJ wedding DJs will ask one guest at each table to produce a set of keys and pass the keys to their right. When everyone stands up, our wedding DJs in NJ will begin playing music. As soon as the music stops, our NJ wedding DJs will ask the person who has the keys to take their seat and pass the keys to the person to their right before starting again. After only one person is left at the table, the popular NJ wedding DJs will congratulate them on holding the keys but will tell them to return them to the person who provided them so that they can place the centerpiece in their car! Watch how your guests react when our popular NJ wedding DJs announce the winner!
Mystery Envelope: Each chair will have an envelope attached to it. The envelope in each chair except for one will have a message that says “Thank you so much for coming but you did not win.” One envelope at each table will have a message that says “Don’t go home feeling blue. This beautiful centerpiece belongs to you!” Have guests remove their envelopes from beneath their chairs and pass them around as music plays. As soon as the music stops, have them open the envelope they are holding. Another option is to play musical chairs. Have guests go around the table as the music plays. As soon as the music stops, have them sit down and open the envelope.
Quick Centerpiece Games to Play:
Hidden Message: Include a hidden message inside the centerpiece of every table. Create unique messages for each centerpiece. You could write, “This centerpiece belongs to the person whose birthday is the closest to the wedding date” or “Hand the centerpiece to the couple who has been married the longest” or “This centerpiece belongs to the eldest guest at the table.”
Additional messages that can be used:
- Hand this centerpiece to the eldest person at this table to take home!
