Pass out votives to every other guest or every other two, depending on number of guests.

Tell guests that as you read the story, they are to pass the votive left when you say left, and pass it right when you say right. When the story ends, those with votives are the winners!


[Bride] left her house and was on her way to the church for her wedding. But about half way there, as she turned left, she remembered that she left her wedding dress at home right by the door! She knew right away that she had to turn around and go right back to get her dress. So she turned right, then left and left again, turning right into her driveway. Sure enough, there it was, right where she had left it, right next to the door.

Finally, she was on the right track. When she arrived at the church, she realized that she only had 1 hour left before the wedding and she still had her hair and make-up left to do. So she went right to work and finished with time left to spare.

Well the wedding was beautiful - the ceremony was just right and nothing was left out. At the reception, [Groom] surprised [Bride] with a beautiful gift from [company]. She was so happy that she teared right up!

Off on their honeymoon they left! Of course, it wouldn't be right to say where they went.

So now there's nothing left to say except enjoy the evening as I get right to my demonstration. Just for fun though, pass once more to the left. Now see, that was fun! Right?
