Creative Company Picnic Themes That’ll Trump all Your Past Picnics

Are your employees sick of the same boring company picnic year after year? It’s time to up the ante on your company picnic planning and execution.  Abandon your boring company picnic theme (those themes that have been giving you lackluster results), and choose from one of these unusual company picnic themes that’ll take your picnic from boring to memorable.

Hawaiian Luau

Make your guests feel transported to the islands with an all out beach front Hawaiian luau.  Combine traditional Hawaiian entrees, luau décor, and the right entertainers, and you’ve got a Hawaiian luau thousands of miles away from the islands—but convenient for your guests.

This is one company picnic theme that you can’t skimp on though; many a company picnic has been thrown cheaply.  Instead, choose to go all out with cuisine and entertainment that fits the theme (ask an entertainment agent to connect you with the right entertainers).

Baseball

Your guests should be singing “talk me out to the ball game…” if you give them a complete baseball fame experience.  Rent out a suite at a local ball game with atmospheric entertainers serving out their favorite treats or host a smaller affair at a local park.  To take your picnic to the next level, have their favorite baseball mascot make an appearance or bring back one of their favorite baseball greats from the past (celebrity impersonators!).

Make sure you don’t forget about your youngest guests; choose a venue that’s got space for the youngest baseball fans.  Provide entertainers that keep them occupied, so the event is enjoyable for the kids and their parents.

Country Fair

Face painters and magicians can entertain your youngest guests, while bands, mimes, and other entertainers can make your more experienced guests enjoy themselves.

Make sure you add all the country fair favorites to the menu to immerse your guests in the theme: corn on the cob, popcorn, cotton candy and all the rest.  Hold the event a fairground or park for the backdrop for your unforgettable vintage country fair.

Theatre Night

During winter, a theatre-themed company picnic includes dinner and a show; during summer, it’s time to take advantage of the weather and move your picnic outdoors.  Invite your guests to a night out at the outdoor theatres; you can rent out an outdoor movie theatre or rent a portable movie screen at the venue of your choice.

Add entertainers to complete the theme.  Ask your entertainment agent to connect you with main stage entertainment that can capture your guests’ attention until the sun goes down. Atmospheric entertainers can offer your guests glow-in-the-dark fun, caricature sketches, yard games, and all the refreshments that come with a night out.
