Tips For Planning a Family Reunion Stress-Free

planning a family reunionMany families have their family reunion during the summer months. It’s always a time to look forward to – seeing relatives from near and far, making memories, and enjoying time with those you love most. But, let’s face it, family reunions can also be a lot of work! Coordinating that many people can be a chore.

Food is almost always a focal point at a family reunion. Everyone has their signature dish, and it’s a treat tasting all the familiar flavors. But potluck-style family reunions also require a tremendous amount of coordination and effort. For family members who are traveling from far away, it’s difficult to bring a home-made dish. For families who are local, more of the burden of hosting falls on their shoulders.

One way you can remove some of this strain is by planning a family reunion that is catered. Not only does letting the professionals handle it remove a lot of work from your to-do list, but it can actually save you money. And if Great Aunt Sue still wants to bring her pie for dessert – she can!

We enjoy catering family reunions. It’s always fun to select a menu that reflects the family’s personality and tastes. We are happy to work with you in planning a family reunion meal your relatives will rave about. And if food allergies are an issue, we are familiar handling them with sensitivity, knowing how important it is. Don’t think your reunion is too small to be catered, either – one of our specialties at Chef du Jour Catering is serving small gatherings.

No matter how you envision your family reunion, we can make your event a success. We are comfortable serving more formal, sit-down dinners or family-style buffets. Even creative ideas like having a classic “picnic in the park” feel aren’t off limits.

If you’re afraid of the price point, we strongly encourage you to give us a call. We are happy to work with you and find a catering solution that works for your family’s budget. Contact us today and we’d love to talk!
