Rehearsal dinners can be a boring affair for children in the wedding; at my son's wedding rehearsal dinner in our Hospitality Room at our church, I designed a child's table for the four children in the wedding.
I had paper place mats made for each child with their name on it, along with the bride, groom's names, date of wedding. Placing on the table, I put a box of crayons on the placemat; the children colored a picture and they could present it to the bride and groom or keep it as a keepsake of the wedding.
The centerpiece was a large Ice Cream Sundae Bouquet which was in a large Coca-Cola glass; it was placed on a 45RPM record bowl I made. Around the centerpiece I scattered flat pieces of bubblegum. (The adult tables had marbles scattered around the center of the table around the centerpiece)
At each child's table setting was a small version of the large centerpiece as a favor for each child. Regular dinner plates, glassware and silverware were used for the children.
On the back of each child's chair was a large sand bucket filled with candy, gum, small games, coloring book, crayons and small toys; it was tied to the back of each child's chair with a satin ribbon of the wedding colors; their names were written on the sand buckets with a metallic paint pen. The contents of the bucket were enjoyed while the adults were involved in their presentation of bride and groom, devotion.
