Planning for a Family Reunion can be quite a pressuring task especially due to the fact that you are expected to set a mood that will be both fun and worth-remembering for your relatives. You are probably reading this because you come from an Italian family and have no idea what to do for the upcoming family reunion, or perhaps you just want to get that Italian-themed family reunion that you’ve always been dreaming of. Either way, here are six of those Italian party decorations that you can use to have a successful family reunion.

1. Put up heritage designs

Because it is a family reunion themed after Italy’s culture, the first thing to consider is putting up Italian decorations such as florals prints, displaying traditional Italian seasonings, or using materials with colors found in the flag of Italy. That alone can spice up the family reunion and make everyone feel like they are in Italy.

2. Family Banner

Creating a family banner and having everyone sign it is another way to make the event more worth-remembering. You may ask your relatives to put in their favorite Italian phrases or sayings along with their signatures or print out a large Italian saying that can best describe the whole family.

3. Balloons and Streamers

Balloons and Streamers are classic party decorations, but for that upcoming Italian family reunion, make things a little different by buying only green, white and red balloons. At the end of the strings of these balloons, you may also tape some old family photos for some fun reminiscing.
