Summer is almost here, and if Pinterest is any indication, a lot of you are in the process of planning your class reunions!
Last year, I had the pleasure of serving with a great team to put together our 20-year class reunion. Our team had a vision of an elegant, casual get together for friends rather than the typical gym or hotel ballroom dance (we did enough of those in our school days!). We wanted an atmosphere that was casual but elegant, just structured enough, but not overplanned or kitschy. Our committee wanted the kind of party we would enjoy as a host or as a guest.
And of course, we needed to stay within a strict budget to keep ticket prices down. Our decoration budget was about $4 per ticket.
Impossible? No! Difficult, yes… But with some ingenuity, imagination, thrift shopping and lots of DIY power, yes, it can be done.
Here is the breakdown of what we needed:
Centerpieces for 12 round dining tables (combination indoor and outdoor)
“In memorium” kiosk
Budget total: $400, which equated to about $30 per table.
Stay tuned for a few more details on how we pulled it off!
