Tips On How To Host an Extraordinary Family Reunion
1. Plan ahead
No matter the number of people you expect, planning ahead is extremely important. Make a list of family members, including spouses, partners and children. Get their contact information and send out the invitations. Your guests should receive the invitations 2 or more weeks before the reunion. A month’s notice is event better. This will give them time to schedule the event into their time frame and make the necessary travel arrangements.
Choose a date when most people can attend. Summer months are perfect since children are out of school.
Find a good location. Depending on the number of people, you can use your backyard or the park. Make sure the venue you choose can accommodate all your guests. Create the proper atmosphere for the reunion. A reunion should be fun and a great time to bond with loved ones. If you’re hosting the event at your home, look at your surroundings. Put the knickknacks and other unwanted objects away for a clean look. You can add some decorations to make the area more festive.
Provide adequate seating for your guests. Picnic tables and benches are good for events with lots of food. Portable bleachers can also be used, they are perfect for a large event and occupy less space. Make sure you rent a tent so that people can relax in the shade.
Plan your food list and shop a few days ahead of time. Some dishes can be prepared in advance and frozen to save time on the day of the reunion. At Big Bounce Fun House Rentals, we can also provide catering service.
Entertainment is a must for a successful family reunion. You can provide one or more things to entertain your guests depending on the budget. Games and inflatables are a great way to get both kids and adults participating. You can provide live entertainment like balloon artists, face painters, magicians and a DJ with a karaoke machine. Music is always great and adds a lot of energy to any event.
Party planning has become more sophisticated over the years. This is because there are many more unique items and supplies that can be incorporated into a reunion party. All these items will depend on your taste and budget. To make things easier, you can always rent equipment from Big Bounce Fun House Rentals. Renting some items together with working with our party planner will make the party planning stages and celebration hassle free. You and your guests will have more time to bond as you will not have worry about the setting up and taking down of the equipment. We will do all of that for you.
