Just for Fun
Share Memories Time
Allow your guests to share a favorite childhood memory or some special memory about a grandmother, mother, etc.
If you are going to be bringing up memories, make sure you have several boxes of tissue on hand and a couple ladies to be on "Tissue Patrol" to make sure the tissues are passed around when needed.
We ladies sometimes get a little sentimental.
You could also put a small individual size packet of Kleenex beside each place.
Food and Serving
Some of that good hearty stuff like your mom or grandmother used to make. Good foods that conjure up good memories.
