Creative party games for your guests

We’ve got a few ways to keep your friends entertained while you put the finishing touches on your meal. Bonus? They’ll be bonding and getting to know each other in the meantime.

1. If your guests are meeting for the first time, why not make a game of it? Create a game of memory by taping each friend’s name and photo under two coasters. It’ll help decrease occurrences of ‘what’s your name again?’ and the coasters can be used throughout the evening.

2. Craftier guests get to show off their creativity when you have them decorate their own wine glasses. We’ve got everything they’ll need in our paper shop, from delicate butterflies to cute stickers.

3. Lure your guests out of their shells with a little friendly competition. Divide them into two teams, giving them everything they need to set the table, including a couple of chairs. Even better, the chairs are stackable and are perfect for storing away for the next time you’ve got company.

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
