Personalize Your Family Reunion
Who says that family get-togethers can only occur during the winter holidays? The spring and summer can also be great times to gather everyone since the weather is nice and schedules tend to be a bit more flexible. Whether you plan a day at the beach, a family cookout, or a weekend up at the lake, the combination of warm weather, great food, and your loved ones will make for a terrific family reunion.
Planning a family reunion for your family? Here are a few suggestions for how to make the event personal and memorable for all!
Use a family photo on your invitation. Choose a digital invitation design from Punchbowl that fits your reunion activity (bowling, beach, cookout, etc.) and customize it with a picture of the whole family from the last time you were together. It will definitely get everyone excited for the event and add a personal touch!
Ask relatives to bring their famous dishes. Make the event a potluck and have relatives sign up to bring certain items. Everyone in the family is famous for something, whether it’s Aunt Theresa’s apple pie or Cousin Jimmy’s chicken wings.
Plan a family slide show. Collect family photos—old and new—from everyone and put together a slide show. You can set it to songs like “We are Family,” “Homeward Bound,” “Forever Young,” and “These Are the Times to Remember.”
- Take photos and send highlights after the reunion. Capture memories from the reunion on your digital camera. After everyone has returned home, send a free eCard to everyone who attended that includes a photo you took at the event that captures a particularly funny/touching moment. You can also share these through the After Party feature of your event invitation, which includes thank you notes and a spot for videos as well.
Your relatives will have such a wonderful time at this reunion, they’ll want to make it an annual tradition! With these suggestions, the event is sure to be a success. Create your event on Punchbowl to get started!
