Family Reunions are great ways to get the family together. If yuo plan on hosting it yourself, here is a step-by-step on, organization and entertainment!
Things You Will Need
Step 1First you need to contact as many relatives as you can. If you don't have everyone's contact information, ask your immediate family for help!! Then, include on the invitations, that all family members are welcome!
Step 2After the address list is set, create simply invitations detailing the time, location, date, and short itinerary list. You can create nice professional invites, or print them off of your home inkjet printer!
Step 3Now, plan the actual reunion itinerary. Organize the location space, whether inside or out, but be prepared for the weather. And get seating and tables together. Its okay if you have too many seats, but not enough seats will cause some problems!
Step 4You also need to consider entertainment. Maybe have one of the younger adults of the family play the DJ for the night! You could also have parlor games, or a Pinata! Our family hosts an auction every year to finance next year's reunion!! Everyone brings something in, and it gets auctioned off!
Lastly, at your reunion, while everyone is together, plan next year's date in advance so that everyone has a year to plan for it!
