Some Ways For Hosting Family Get-Togethers
Pick a Theme
Pool fill up the kiddie pool and encourage water fights and Marco Polo. Enjoy beachy treats like fruit and fish and chocolate wil bring the comfortable for your family
Plan the Menu
If you really enjoy cooking or prefer not to do a potluck event, pick menu options that don’t require involved cooking. When you’re hosting a family get-together, the last thing you want to do is stow away in the kitchen the entire time! Depending on your menu, you can serve chips on the side, pasta salad, simple chopped up fruit, or veggies and dip. If you have a lot of kiddos coming to the party, it’s best to go for simple grab-and-go sides that don’t require a bunch of prep (or extra dishes). If you’re REALLY not looking forward to cleaning up after the party, check your local dollar store for paper plates, and plastic cups and serving ware.
Set Up Fun Activities
You may want to plan a few cool activities besides simply eating. Put on some great summer tunes country, pop, oldies try to pick a soundtrack that everyone can get behind. Music is free and it’ll really make your event feel like a party! Try a card game or a game that doesn’t require a ton of skill but gets everyone laughing and engaged. If your family is crafty, you could try letting everyone paint a watercolor or other little painting project they could take home with them afterwards. Decorating a picture frame from the dollar store or making a paper-craft that matches your party theme can also be fun.
Give Simple Party Favors
The biggest rule of party planning is to have fun and let yourself enjoy the party, too! People don’t expect red-carpet treatment when they come to a family get-together or party. They just want to enjoy the company, laugh, and make memories. A baked dessert is easy and cheap, and your guests can enjoy it on the way home. Your guests can also take home the item they crafted. If you have time, email your guests a simple thank you and include your favorite photos from the party.
Family get-togethers are about really appreciating each other and connecting as a family. So often, in our hustle-bustly lives we don’t have time to really enjoy relatives. They get older, kids grow up, and suddenly life has passed and we didn’t spend as much time as we wanted together.
