We are having an afternoon wedding and reception serving High Tea but there will be no dancing. The reception will only be two hours and we do have a shutterbooth for some fun but I had an idea today and wanted to bounce it off as cute or lame.
We have a poet reference (the love story of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning) running through the wedding which I am tagging as romantic, whimsical and vintage. I thought of doing a magnetic poetry kit (love themed) at each table with a diy magnetic board done in a vintage frame for guests to play with if they want.
So would this be fun or rather strange?

I think that sounds like an awesome idea! Who doesn’t get a kick out of magnetic poetry?!

When we had magnetic poetry on our fridge EVER SINGLE PERSON that came over rearranged things. Totally cute.

I think it’s a cute idea. I wouldn’t stress about filling in the time however. People love to socialize with other guests they haven’t seen for a while and 2 hours will whiz by.

OK my 16 year old son said that they made dirty poems in english class with these and could not stop laughing when I told him – so I think I have to if for no other reason than to crack him up at the wedding

OK we have just about finished the first one – we are making 8 kits – this has been the most fun project – we made the word list and printed it on magnetic 8.5x 11 paper and cut it out using a guillotine style paper cutter between the rows and then scissors for the letters. We made chalkboards out of roofing sheet metal sheets and chalkboard paint and got the frames at goodwill
Highly recommended if you want something fun and silly and personal but super easy too 🙂

I like the idea of high tes but must admit I’d miss a good boogie if there wasn’t one

I saw that as a “kissing” idea. Instead of clinking glasses the table has to make a poem with magnetic poetry and read it. I TOTALLY LOVED IT and thought about doing it as favours. Can’t wait to see if you post a pic of the finished product!

@Scottish_lassie: We have gone back and forth on the dancing a million times – we can have a dance floor for free, and we are having fun crooners type music, think Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald but most of our guests are not dancers. So we are not sure do we have the dance floor there for ppl that do want to dance or would that just be awkward 🙂

I love that idea. It’s SO creative.
