Since our families (and bridal party) won’t meet each other until the wedding we thought it would be fun to have our rehearsal dinner at a Dave and Busters type place with dinner in the restraunt followed by bowling, games and laser tag. We rented one of their private rooms so we will have tables for dinner. Do any of you ladies have any ideas for decorations? I’m not planning on going all out but a cute centerpiece would be nice.
I’m going to have mad lib cards for each guest at their seat but wanted something “bowling themed” for the centerpiece.
Any creative suggestions??? THANKS!

You could use wine bottles as a base for paper mache bowling pins.
Or, find some old bowling shoes at a thrift store and use them as a planter. Create miniature bowling shirts from painted foam core, attach to skewers and insert into the arrangement.
Make pomanders that look like ten-pin bowling balls- ie different colors for the holes.
Use white vases with a ribbon to look like a bowling pin.
Find miniature or toy bowling pins-add a veil to one and a black tie to the other.
Find old bowling trophies at the thrift shop and have new plates engraved for them-
“Team ___ and ___”

LOVE the old shoe as a planter idea. Not sure how I will execute it but it sounds so cute =) and I really really like your trophy idea. I know you were probably meaning for centerpieces but how cute would it be to give a trophy to whoever had the highest score of the night! haha.

@Terryal87: I haven’t done the bowling shoe centerpiece, but I have used a child’s rubber boot, cowboy boots etc.
If you want to use fresh flowers, just find a small low glass or other container that fits inside the opening of the shoe to use to hold the arrangement.
If you use plants, just tip it out of the pot it comes in and plant it inside the shoe.
You could have the trophies engraved and ready to go- then cover the engraved plate with a removeable sticker. Use them as your centerpiece then remove the sticker and present the trophies to the winners. That way you get rid of the centerpieces too!
