Family is very important to all of us here at Ginny’s and nothing is more fun than celebrating the little things with loved ones. It’s even fun to just celebrate the ability to get together! A family reunion is a wonderful time to catch up with those you don’t see often, chat about old memories and create new ones. We have some ideas to help plan this year’s family reunion and hopefully alleviate some of the hassle. That way, you have more time to make those memories!
Bring a Dish to Pass
Making food for an entire family can be a huge task. Ask each family to bring a dish to pass to help be sure there is enough food for everyone without spending the entire week before in the kitchen. Find great dish to pass recipes on our website.
Bring Your Own Table Service
For family reunion picnics, ask that each family provides their own table service; plates, forks, knives, spoons, bowls, cups. Cleanup is easy and everyone is responsible for their own items.
Have it the same time every year
These days, schedules fill up quickly – especially during the summer. Help everyone plan ahead for the Family Reunion by having it the same weekend every year. For example, schedule the reunion for the first Saturday in August every year.
Ask everyone to pitch in
If your family reunion is somewhere that requires a rental fee, ask for a donation or collection from each family for the next year’s fee.
Take Family Pictures
Capture the memories by asking someone to take pictures throughout the day. Each year, display the pictures from the previous years to see how things have changed. Also, you can take pictures of each individual family every year. It’s fun to see how every family grows.
We hope you have a great reunion this year and would love to hear your ideas and stories. Also, don’t forget to like us on Facebook or follow us on Pinterest! http://www.facebook.com/ginnysbrand
