Some themes for family reunions include outdoor sports, food and culture, family history, holidays and seasons, milestones, and music. These themes can be customized to fit a family's specific interests, ethnicity, and memories.
Some ideas for outdoor sports themes for family reunions include Olympic Reunion, Bash It Like Babe, Football Fever or Bend It Like Beckham. The Olympic Reunion can coincide with the summer Olympics that are held every four years. Family members can choose a country to represent and compete in Olympic games against one another. Bash it Like Babe is a baseball-themed reunion that allows relatives to don jerseys worn by their favorite baseball teams. Football Fever is a theme that uses a stadium-inspired menu and awards an MVP at the end of the day for being the most valuable attendee.
Food and culture themes celebrate the authentic traditions and cuisine that are unique to the family's heritage. A Mexican fiesta, Hawaiian luau, Arabian night, British invasion and an Italian pasta party are great examples. Costumes, cuisine, and activities can be tailored to each theme. Themes that commemorate important familial milestones are also popular. Anniversaries, birthdays, key decades and vow renewals are just a few examples. Typically, trivia games and performances are included among the activities.
