Planning a Friends’ Reunion? Use These 5 Tips!


Friends reunions are a great way to celebrate the past and create new memories with old friends. It’s also a wonderful excuse to get together with your closest pals. However, planning one can be challenging if you don’t know how or where to start. Here’s a quick guide to help you plan the perfect friends’ reunion!

Let Your Friends Help You Plan This Reunion

You can’t do it alone, so you must delegate tasks to your friends. You should ask for help and be clear about what you want from your friends. For example, if you plan a future trip with them, ask them how many people they think would join them on the excursion. You may find that some people have suggestions on where to go or things to do. Remember to welcome all suggestions.

Pick an Appealing Theme

A lot of the planning process revolves around choosing the right theme. Your friends will be spending money and time on you, so it’s important to pick something that appeals to them. But don’t force your idea onto other people.

If your group is more into serene walks in nature than raging out at a club, don’t make them do what you want just because you can. If your group isn’t particularly creative or doesn’t have a lot of money, a very elaborate or unique theme may not work for everyone.

ConsiderEveryone’s Taste Buds & Dietary Restrictions

You don’t need a separate meal option for every person at the reunion. Instead, plan one or two main meals that everyone can enjoy. Keep some side dishes that satisfy those with dietary restrictions or picky palates.

For example, if you’re planning an Italian-themed meal and want to include vegetarian options, consider having a pasta dish without meat in it. If vegans or vegetarians are in attendance looking for some protein on their plate, keep some vegan cheese for them to sprinkle. 

If someone has allergies or dislikes certain foods (such as seafood), you can make chicken strips instead of shrimp scampi. There are other options available too. Just make sure to have a range of desserts like biscuits or butter rum cookies so that everyone can snack on something before dinner.

Prepare Fun Games Everyone Can Play

Games are a great way to get everyone talking and having fun. Choose a game that is competitive, easy to understand and appropriate for your age. You should also consider if someone is more competitive than others. In that case, you could choose a less competitive game. The best games bring out the competitiveness in all of us but are easy enough for anyone who’s never played before. Card games like poker or blackjack can be fun because there’s no strategy involved, all it takes is luck. Also, simple card games like Uno or Skip-Bo are great for groups. Don’t forget to throw in finger foods like French fries and butter rum cookies while the guests have fun.

Make Sure to Have an Emergency Plan

The most important part of any reunion is the safety of your friends. Make sure you have a first-aid kit and some basic supplies like water and snacks in case someone gets lost or hurt. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.


Whether you’re coming up with the perfect reunion theme or choosing the perfect location, these tips will help make this fun and memorable for everyone. The most important thing is to have a good time. Don’t stress about the, ensure everyone has enough food, drinks, and entertainment.

I usually use sites where you can find a printable calendar to plan the next meetings with friends and mark these days. I also often mark all important deliveries or services that need to be ordered the day before.

It’s always been easy for me to throw regular parties. But what to do when your best friend is gay and he plans to get married? I broke my head trying to enter a boring format. Have you had problems with gay parties?

You have touched on an interesting topic. Few ordinary people think that all wedding ceremonies are very much tailored to classic couples. I had to consult with the guys from the chat about how to properly organize the process, check it out. I spent a lot of time finding my boyfriend and didn’t want my holiday to be overshadowed.
