I’m hosting a Sheva brachos for my brother in law. It’s out of town and low key. It’s going to be a smallish group (around 20 ppl). Mainly family that we don’t see much. Not a super tight knit group.

I’m planning on buffet, laid back… as per the request of the couple.

However, I do want it to be beautiful. And memorable.

What “shtick” can I add to the decor that will bring it to the next level. My teen suggested little cards next to all the food with the name of the food on it. Good idea?

What else?

I plan on going to a table cloth rental for a beautiful tablecloth. What else do I need?

What about entertainment? I can have 2 men speak. What else to make it memorable? Don’t think they’d appreciate a game.

I want them to leave the night feeling that it was special. They deserve it and I want to make it happen for them.

I was recently at a sheva brachos where someone had taken multiple different pictures of the chosson and kallah at the wedding and they had an 8x10 frame on each table with a different picture. It was a really nice touch.

Get household/ random items with index cards for each person and everyone has to write a Bracha or advice that connects to that item.

Since you say it's mainly family, could you create a book with pictures of all the family members who will be present? Where possible, a photo of them with the chatan (since he seems to be the family member). Add in a few photos of the couple - from their engagement is fine, they do t have to be wedding photos Leave it out for everyone to sign on 'their' page with a message or bracha for the couple.

That leaves the event low key, and doesn't put anyone on the spot to be creative or do things in public. It dies give everyone a chance to say what they want, and gives the couple a nice memento to take away.

I don’t understand This trend. It is a sheva brachos not a chanuka party or ladies night out.
You can write brachos without the items.
Elfrida’s suggestion is a good one.
