And so do family reunions!

No matter the size of your family, getting everyone together in one place and at one time is a huge undertaking. And making sure that everyone in attendance knows each other can be a daunting task.

Recently there was an online article about a family reunion with over 200 people in attendance. Crazy! So, what did they do to keep things as functional as possible? They gave everyone small strips of paper to write who their ancestors were. This helped to keep track of how everyone was related.

We’re taking this one step further! What about using badge ribbons?

Not only can these ribbons be used to label someone, but what about using blank ribbons to feature the names that associate you with those around you at the reunion?

In the article, the attendees were given blue papers for male names and pink ribbons for female names. If you don’t want to use this fun color idea, check out all the color options we have available!badge ribbons are great at a family reunion or party for identifying people

Badge ribbons are also an excellent way to identify people. Start with name badges so that everyone won’t be guessing people’s names all day. Then, attach badge ribbons to familiarize each other with how they are related. Create custom ribbons with words such as father, aunt, cousin, sister or just choose the last name to indicate from which family line they originate.

Also, don’t forget the name badges so people can remember what the attendee’s name is!

From family reunions to summer work parties, another great use for these blank badge ribbons is party games. Use the different colors for different games or organization during the festivities. Design your own game using badge ribbons and either focus on the colors or write on them with a permanent marker.

Whatever your need at your next family reunion or party, make sure to remember that people need to be recognized and identifiable!
