Whether you’re celebrating ten years or 30, class reunions can be thrilling events. But a lot more goes into planning these social events than you might think. And you have so many event venues and services to choose from in New York City. As you and your classmates discuss the details, keep these insights in mind, especially if you’re looking to curate a high-energy, wildly entertaining, and memorable evening.
Get Creative with an Event Theme
Start by deciding on an event theme. With a fun theme for your class reunion, you can get creative with all the other details, including decor, food, and entertainment. Put together a few ideas and present them to your classmates to take a vote. Here are some event theme ideas for inspiration:
- Hawaiian Luau
- Cirque du Soleil
- Night in Hollywood
- Day at the Beach
- Charming Boho
- Garden of Eden
- The Great Gatsby
- Magic & Wonder
- Moon & Stars
Don’t Cut Corners on Entertainment
You’re anticipating lively conversations with fellow classmates you haven’t seen in years. But don’t rely on conversations alone as your reunion’s entertainment. Make plans to incorporate music with a DJ or live band. And if you want the reunion to be one for the books, add more layers of activities and fun, including:
- Magicians & Mentalists
- Escape Room Activities
- AR & VR
- Espresso Bar Artists
- Historic Photo & Yearbook Presentations
Delectable Appetizers for the Win
You’ll likely be planning for a meal service at your class reunion. But don’t just book the buffet. Create stunning cocktail hours with delectable appetizers and hors d’oeuvres that elevate the experience. And consider introducing post-meal snacks, too, for guests who might get hungry later.
Hire an Event Planner
