A game to show some love

Because of all the positive feedback we got last week with our “Guest of Honor Trivia”, we wanted to share one more game with you.  On Saturday we played “Who Said What?” for our friend Lindsay. She turned 30 and we surprised her with a celebratory brunch and game.  Lindsay is pretty incredible, so we took this opportunity to let her know what we all thought of her.  She is extremely talented and also really good at games, so instead of making the group be the competitors, she was the one who had to get the answers right.  Among many incredible things…Lindsay has created a birthday video for my 30th, rewritten the words to “Don’t Stop Believin’” for our wedding rehearsal dinner, and oh-  she won Wheel of Fortune, so we really had to step it up.

 

 

 

 

 

Don't Stop Believin' - New Lyrics by Lindsay

For this game, we emailed some of her closest friends 15 fill in the blank questions. (see below).  We then compiled all the answers and printed out an answer key.  Next we enlarged the font, printed them on regular printer paper, and cut them out in the shape of a chat bubble.  Finally, we printed out photos of everyone’s faces on card stock. We used Photoshop to make the heads close to actual size, but you can also accomplish this simply by cropping the photo and making it bigger in a word document.

 

To play the game we taped all the heads to a board (or in our case the TV armoire we have). I read the statement and laid out the answers.  Lindsay then had to match the quote with the person who said it.  It was fun to see all the different reasons people loved Lindsay and to reminisce about some of our favorite times.

  

 

Lily appreciates getting a birthday card in the mail. Send one to your friend today!!
