You probably have an image of crazy family members making the most of the family reunion you are planning to host. While this may be the case sometimes, mostly, it's just a simple, fun affair. Now, you've probably done everything while planning a family reunion, to ensure that everything is perfect, from the invitations, to the food, to the activities.
But what about the favors? You do want your family members to go back with wonderful memories of the grand reunion you have planned, don't you? What can you give out as favors for family reunions? Take a look at some of these ideas that will solve your dilemma.
Now, if some of you are overwhelmed by the idea of searching for and discovering the roots of your family, start a family tree from your or your previous generation. Though in definition a family tree is supposed to comprise 'all' members of a family, create a new trend by starting your family tree from 'scratch'.
Create a scrapbook, with pictures of your family members, and let them add their own inputs to it. Circulate it around at the family reunion, and allow it to grow. Send out copies to all the members after the reunion.
Wrap around the sapling a little ribbon, and if possible, have your family name engraved on the pot. While the tree will be planted, the pot can remain as a favor. Don't forget to include instructions on how to plant the trees when you give them as favors.
So after you've planned what your family would call the best family reunion ever, part with wonderful memories by handing out these great favors.
