Lisa and Bill's '80s-themed wedding had a big neon cake, records everywhere, and mix tape favors. But one of my favorite parts was their coloring book-style placemat for the kids in attendance. If you're handy with a pencil (or even Photoshop filters!), this project would give any would-be illustrator a great challenge. Plus, anything that keeps the kids busy means more fun for everyone else, too.

Want to see more inspiration? Take a peek at this DIY activity book and games placemat. Also check out the rest of Lisa and Bill's crazy colorful '80s wedding. It's totally worth it.

  1. For the kids…..right………..

    ( I would probably have someone really good at coloring fill one out and frame it)

  2. My fiance and I are doing this at our wedding too! I started tracing photos in photoshop as a way to teach myself to use my new graphics tablet and turned into full scale wedding favor-a-palooza as well as xmas gifts for the kids in the family. So much fun!
