While it might not seem like it right now, we all still have much to celebrate. Families are already making plans to come together at a future date to recognize birthdays, anniversaries, new babies, graduations, engagements, retirements, and other significant milestones. If you are thinking about planning a family reunion or another type of group celebration, start by choosing the best meeting and event space in Swansea, MA, at the world-famous Venus de Milo. We have everything you need to host a memorable event, including in-house catering, audiovisual equipment, tables and chairs, linens, and decorations, along with a highly trained and experienced staff who will spoil you and your guests with top-notch service.

How Much Planning is Needed?
Unlike a backyard BBQ or holiday dinner, planning a family reunion or other large gathering requires a bit of time to get it right. We recommend that you take at least three to six months to put this all together, which is probably enough time for everything to start going back to normal again. Contact our MA wedding and banquet facility to find out what we are doing about scheduling reservations and making plans for parties and celebrations. We can provide you with detailed information about the process to secure our party and conference center in Southeastern New England, along with support for event planning with one of our experienced personal coordinators.
Competing with wedding receptions, corporate conferences, and other large events can make it challenging to get a specific date, so it is recommended that you have a couple of dates in mind that will work when planning any type of party. That way, if the date you want most is not open, you will have other options. If you only need a small room and don’t require a larger ballroom for your gathering, we might be able to accommodate you even if other events are planned for later on the same day. Our team will work with you to help you get the dates and opportunities that you want whenever possible.
Create a Budget for the Party
Work with other members of your family to pool funds together to pay for the party. One way to do it is if you are having a combination celebration for multiple family members, ask the parents or individuals who are including a milestone event to contribute. A party that celebrates two high school graduations, three birthdays, two anniversaries, an engagement, a retirement, and the birth of a new baby should have plenty of people who want to help pay for the MA wedding and banquet facility, food service and drinks, decorations, and celebration cake or dessert.
Combination parties can be a lot of fun, but make sure that you provide special recognition to each individual being honored when planning a family reunion. There might be three birthdays, but you should have a small cake for each person and sing “Happy Birthday” individually to give them their moment in the spotlight. The same goes for graduates, invite them to wear their cap and gown, show off their diplomas, but have them march out separately and feature a photo or video montage that highlights their school achievements. There are some pretty creative ways to celebrate each person and have them feel special.
