To create a theme, use a genre of music or the decade in which the class graduated as a guide for decorations, colors and dress requirements. Another creative theme idea is to recreate senior prom, using the same venue and photos of the event to match the decor. Consider throwing the event on the same weekend as the school's homecoming to allow the alumni to participate in the festivities.
Decorate the event space using enlarged yearbook photos of the senior class or photos provided by attendees beforehand that depict friendships, special events or accomplishments. Display trophies, banners or other memorabilia in the lobby where the event is held. Ask attendees to provide current photos, and run a slide show of then-and-now photos.
For a weekend reunion, hold a formal dinner or dance in addition to meet-and-greets, games and retreat activities. Work with a local hotel to get special room rates, or call local hangouts to schedule meals or events such as golf tournaments or paintball games. Have a Sunday picnic at a local park to end the weekend.Learn more about Holidays & Celebrations
