Game Night Party

Do you want to host an event for 
your friends or a large group?

Host a game night!

Game Night - game night, ward party ideas for food, decorations, and games

For any party I am throwing, the 
first thing I start with is the invitation!

Game Night, Ward Party- ideas for invitation, food, decorations, and games

I found some scrabble tiles
and chess pieces on the internet.  
I googled "free game piece png"

A png is like a digital sticker.
It has a transparent back ground.
It's easy to add to an invitation 
in photo editing software.
(I use Pic Monkey, which is free)

This party was held at my church.

Game Night, Ward Party, DIY large dice, decorations

I made dice by wrapping 12 x 12 boxes with
Then I used a large circle punch*
to create circles for the dice.

Game Night, Ward Party, welcome sign, ideas for invitations, food, decorations and games

I used a foam core board to make a Welcome Sign.
I cut colored cardstock into squares
and wrote the words with markers.*

Game Night, Ward Party ideas for decor, name badges, food and games

I used a game board,
my lightbox*, a jar of vintage game pieces
for the greeting table.
I used labels* for name badges.

Our ward (church congregation) just split.  
This is the first time a bunch of new people
have gotten together so it helped to have name badges.

Decoration ideas

I used a rag banner (tied strips of fabric to twine).
I printed large scrabble letters and clipped them to yarn.
I also used a felt pennant banner  
that was made from inexpensive felt sheets sewn to ribbon.

All of the guests brought appetizers and desserts to share.

As a host, don't forget to provide:

and drinks.
I always use bottled water
because it's inexpensive and easy
to serve to a large group!

Appetizer ideas

veggie and fruit tray
salsa and chips

On the tables,
I used white table cloths.
For centerpieces I used board games.
It's a fun and functional centerpiece!
Games were played in small groups at the tables.

We also played 
It was SO entertaining to laugh with friends!


This party for a very enjoyable evening!
I totally recommend having a game night!
