Summer is a great time to show appreciation for your employees by hosting a company picnic. It’s something people look forward to and it’s an easy way for the company to show they care. Here are 4 tips to planning a top-notch company picnic this summer.
Choose a Venue
Pick a venue that is going to be convenient for the staff. One factor to keep in mind is the size of the location. Are you going to keep the party to just staff? Or will you also be inviting families? If families are included, look for locations at a park or location with plenty of space to bring in other attractions. Also, make sure there is lots of parking. Or, communicate with people where to park off-site or to carpool. To learn more about renting space in a city park in Denver, check out this information from the city of Denver.

Rent Any Necessary Equipment
Parks usually have tables, benches, and covered seating. Depending on the location and size of your group you may need to rent tables, chairs, and a tent to make sure people are comfortable and safe from the sun or rain. No one wants to have the company picnic ruined by not having enough seating to eat. You also want to avoid having everyone get a sunburn because there was no space in the shade. Party Time Rental has everything you need to make your party a success.
Brand Your Party and Have a Theme
To make the company picnic an event to remember, brand your party. Make shirts for the staff, posters advertising the event, and invitations. People like to have something to take away from the event to remember it—whether it is a t-shirt, water bottle, pint glass, or fidget spinner. A certain sales milestone or a certain number of years in business can give you a guideline on picking a theme. Or you can just pick something summery and fun like “luau,” or “pool party.” To get more ideas on summer themes, check out this article from Good Housekeeping.
