Those gatherings may be very informal, but the occasions I always treat as precious. For that reason I don't want to be worried about whether there is a nearby wall or not, a harsh light window on a side, a too tall ceiling, and so on. They must "turn out nice" to deserve a place in two or three family albums. So I always shoot with at least one flash with Gary Fong Universal Lightsphere Diffuser for interiors. If I have the time I may go up to four speedlights, all with diffusers, all in CLS, iTTL.
Here is a sample of last May, Mothers Day, right after lunch with a single flash:
Nikon D700, 28-70mm f/2.8D ED IF AF-S @ 35mm, f/5.6, 1/60s, ISO 400
