Wedding lawn games with a sustainable twist!

Published by Claire Gould on

I had an email the other week from a lovely person called Adele, who’s recently launched her business hiring out sustainable wedding games.

The idea came up when she looked back on her childhood. “On a Sunday evening we would all get together as a family at my grandparents’ house and play games such as dominoes and tops & tails. When you are attending big events like weddings, it can be quite daunting for some children and adults but the games can provide a really relaxed atmosphere. You can’t just buy these either so it inspired me to look at other games and think how can we make them bigger and more sustainable which is really important to me.

So with the help of local craftsmen Adele began to assemble an impressive collection of novel games like dominoes, skittles, ring toss, boules. Slowly adding more to her collection, along with trying to make her games as sustainable and recyclable as possible.

“The games are tactile and offer a real connection between people which mobile phones and television cannot.”

It’s this analogue approach to a world dominated by digital games that sets Adele’s concept, called The Sensory Area, apart. This award winning small business which provides an Event Hire Service can deliver across Cornwall.

In keeping with our values of trying to use as much recycled wood as possible, such as different sized pallets for games and props. Our signs have that real look and natural feel which is what we want to achieve in our rustic style’.

The Sensory Area provides rustic packages including a variety of signs, cake stands, table numbers, post boxes and more along with Lawn Games Packages.
