Planning a family reunion can be a difficult job – there is a lot to think about, and trying to tie up all the loose ends and ensure everyone can make it can feel like a lot of pressure. That’s why, when it comes to thinking up ideas that everyone will enjoy, and no one will forget, it’s best to pick things that are easy to plan and that will leave you free to enjoy the event as much as everyone else. Here are some amazing ideas that make your family reunion the best one ever.
Go On Holiday
Why make your family reunion event just a one-day affair when you can make it last for a week or even two? Booking a holiday that includes a private villa is ideal, as you will be able to enjoy complete privacy for all your guests, and you can come and go as you please, meaning that you can all enjoy your holiday as much as you want to. Plus, villas are truly relaxing, as you will feel as though it’s your own space, and you won’t have to share with anyone else.
If you’re wondering what destination to pick, Florida holidays are your answer. They appeal to everyone, young and old, and whether you want to visit Walt Disney World Resort, visit the Everglades and see the alligators, or lie on the beach, you can do whatever suits you the best.
Arrange A Picnic
Picnics are fantastic events to arrange for a family reunion because you don’t have to worry about finding a venue (which saves time, money, and stress) and because the catering is easy too. You can ask everyone to bring some food and drink to share, for example, so all you need to do is provide a table big enough to hold it all.
If you prefer to have the food arranged in advance, contact a private caterer who will be able to make plenty of picnic food and deliver it on the day.
Picnics are wonderful because they take place outdoors, so the children can run around and play (as can some of the adults), and people can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine as they reconnect. When it comes to making memories, the sunshine really does help.
Organise A Theatre Trip
A trip to the theatre is always exciting, and organising one for a family reunion might work out very well indeed. Sometimes reunions can be awkward, especially if people haven’t seen one another for a long time. That can mean that conversation is difficult to get started. If you go to the theatre, you are sure to have at least one thing to talk about afterwards. Get everyone together around a table for food and let the discussion begin; it is sure to lead to other conversation, and soon enough everyone will be laughing and smiling with one another.
Create A Slideshow
If you want to opt for a traditional party or get together with food, drink, and music, that can be just as much fun as some of the more unique ideas, especially if you add your own twist to proceedings by creating a film or slideshow from old photographs.
Those present will love to see themselves, the other people in the room, and departed family members up on a big screen. It will bring back plenty of memories and make everyone smile.
