Star Prize? Dinner for Two!

I often write a speech or a quiz for friends' birthday parties and am always on the lookout for new ideas...

A couple of weeks ago I made a little quiz for a friend's daughter's confirmation party.  A buzz went around the room when I handed out the quiz sheets and the pens and pencils.  Because at the top I had typed "Star Prize: Dinner for Two"!  (You can bet they were excited to see who was going to win that...)

The quiz went down well, everyone laughed in the right places and at the end I asked everyone to swap their quiz sheet with a neighbour (to avoid cheating, bien sûr) so we could tally up the scores.  I presented the winner - a 15 year old boy - with the "Star Prize" and he eagerly unwrapped it to find this...


...2 paper plates, 2 plastic forks, 2 serviettes,
an Ikea candle and candleholder
and a tin of 'Forloren Skilpadde'
(a very peculiar Danish 'stew' of veal, fish dumplings and sherry)
A rather wonderful "Dinner for Two", don't you think?!

Hope you have a terrific Tuesday! :)
