Long Time No See/ Reunion Party Game: Animal Couples

This is quite hilarious, and sounds like a zoo!! Very fun!

Prepare cards with different animals.
Each animal should have 2 cards.
Each guest will receive a card with an animal.

Then, explain that the guests should make sounds of the animals when the game starts, and then find the other matching pair.

Simple Entertaining- Long time no see/ Reunion Party

It’s nice to catch up with friends you haven’t seen for ages, but when there’s a sizable group to catch up with, why not have a mini party for all? It’s a nice treat for everyone.

There will be lots of chit-chatting, so, make sure there are enough seats for everyone, and enough space for people to walk around mingling around. The best solution is still to have a simple buffet table, and let everyone focus on the conversations.

Simple Entertaining- Housewarming Party- Treasure Hunt Centerpiece and Menu

Since a new house is only slowly getting stocked, coupled with the fact we are busy giving attention to the guests, we can keep it simple with the decor and meal. After all, guests are here to see the house and walk around chatting.

Set up a table for food and drinks, and use paper plates and cutlery to save time on cleaning.
Candles set the mood for a housewarming party, so maybe a centerpiece like this will be great!!

Have chairs around to encourage people to sit while eating.

Suggested Menu:
To minimize mess, it's better to use food that can be held easily, or if it's wrapped separately.

Satay/ meat skewers
Mini pizzas

Simple Entertaining- Housewarming Party Idea: Treasure Hunt

How to make a housewarming party interesting? It's quite boring just to have someone bring along a plate, and sit down and eat.. and of course one wants to show off the new house a bit after all the effort put in. :0)

Theme: Treasure Hunt

This unfortunately require quite a lot of preparation. But, it's quite fun for the guests.
You need a treasure map, which is essentially a floor plan of your house.
Mark a few places on the map, which you would like to show your guests. Eg: your beautiful toilet? :0)
And thereafter, at those marked places, place a bowl of wrapped sweets, chocolates or candy canes. (Try to put it at very obvious places cause you don't want people to mess up your room)

The idea is for your guests to follow the floor plan to find all the rooms you want to show them, and at the same time collect the 'treasures'. In the end, they will be led to the dining room, where the food is!

Doughnut Party Game- Doughnuts on a String

This is a very common game with kids, but i think that adults enjoy it too. It's very funny when you see people going for the doughnuts.

Tie a rope between two poles. This rope has to be higher than the height of the participants. Then tie strings from the rope, some longer and some shorter. Have players start on the count of three. And then, with hands behind their back, they have to finish one doughnut. The first to finish wins.

Simple Entertaining- Doughnut party!!

I love doughnuts, and I thought why not have a doughnut party!!

Have each of the guests bring a different type of doughnut.
To make it a bit special, make or buy doughnut drops, and put out some sauces
For example, caramel sauce, strawberry sauce etc. Add another plate of powdered sugar or chocolate sprinkles and the guests will be able to create their own doughnut.

Stack a couple of doughnuts up just like this..

Happy 10th Anniversary Party Game- How well do you know each other?

Preparation: Box filled with questions either prepared by yourself or ask guests to contribute.

There's 2 parts to this game:

1st part is for the couple.
The guests picks a question from a box, and ask the couple to write down their answers on the paper, to see whether their answer matches each other.

Example of questions:
1)On your first date, who paid for the meal?
2)What is your husband's favorite drink?
3)What is your wife's favorite drink?
4)Where did your proposal take place?
5) When driving, which radio station can both of you agree on?
6) What is the best gift your husband has given to you?
7) What is the best gift your wife has given to you?
8)When was the first time they met?

2nd part is for the other guests (so that your guests won't get bored :0)
The celebrating couple picks out a question from the question box and reads it out. Then the guests each write out the answer, and match it with the celebrating couple's answers.

Example of questions:
1) What time was their wedding held?
2) What is the couple's favorite animal?
3) What is the couple's favorite thing to do together?
4) It's sunday afternoon, would they rather go to a movie or stay at home?
5) What does the husband like most of the wife?
6) What does the wife like most of the husband?
7) Where did the couple go for their honeymoon?
