Company picnics are a wonderful way to get your co-workers and their families together for a great day of food and entertainment. Hosting a successful picnic and setting everything in place can be quite stressful, but by keeping in mind just a few planning tips, you’ll be sure to have an exciting and memorable picnic that everyone will enjoy!
Provide entertainment! If there are kids attending you will want to make sure there is something for them to do. The same goes for adults! Incorporate carnival games like horseshoes or duck pond. Inflatable attractions are also a great way to keep kids entertained. You can even create raffles to give your guests a chance to win prizes!
If your event is outside, make sure you have adequate cover. We all hope to have a bright sunny company picnic outside, but even the sunniest of days can quickly turn to a rainy day without notice. Outside events should have some cover, like tents or canopies to protect guests from the rain and the sun.
Find a spacious location. Ensure that there is enough parking to accommodate every guest. Check your potential location to see if there are restrooms or any other specific amenities that you might need to provide guests.
Don’t forget the food. It get get pretty stressful trying to get everything together, but food is probably the most important thing on your guests’ minds when going to a company picnic. If you’re grilling, make sure the food is being kept warm, and that cold foods are kept cold! No one want a cold cheeseburger or warm drinks!
