Taking Advantage of Family Reunion Planning Month

It's still November the remainder of the month. And that means it's still Annual Family Reunion Planning Month.  Take advantage of early reunion planning tips at its best.  Here are a few tips shared by experienced reunion planners to help you make your event planning experience a sure success. 

Take Advantage of Seasonal Travel Discounts

During the Months of November through January many family events are observed. Federal holidays and long holiday weekends make for the perfect season for family gatherings. Take advantage of readily available seasonal family travel discounts. Avoid Last-minute flight deals by booking early. Take advantage of off-season hotel deals across the US. Plan on dining out? During the fall and winter season there are fantastic deals on group dining, shows and clubs. Families with teenage children save big at theme, amusement and adventure park entertainment. 

Take Advantage of The Season for Support and Bonding

The Fall and Winter season focuses on visiting and supporting the elders of the family. During this time we tend to focus on how we can show our parents and grandparents we love and cherish them. We enjoy eating their comfort food, getting cozy,  and listening to their stories as they open up a colorful world of family history to us. Take advantage of this time to build closer bonds, document your family history and get the family involved in planning for the next big event - the family reunion. 

Take Advantage of Early Event Planning Money Savers

There are endless money saving advantages when starting your family reunion planning in November. Make plans to take advantage of Black Friday and other seasonal sales. Plan on doing a load of cooking? November is the ideal season to reserve your home appliance purchases including indoor and outdoor ovens, indoor gaming and outdoor game equipment as well as cookware and coolers. 

Having your reunion at the ol' homestead? Need to make some home improvements first? November is the ideal month to get started. Take advantage of seasonal discounts on electric and manual tools, ladders and toolboxes.  Now is the time to create a list of all items needed for your home and upcoming special events including your family reunion.
