3 Fall Themes For Your Next Corporate Picnic in San Diego

If you live in sunny San Diego, then you know that picnics are a year-round activity. Spring, summer, fall, and winter, Picnic People hosts picnics across San Diego for families, businesses, and groups of friends. If you’re looking for corporate picnic theme ideas, here are few that have been hit in the past.


San Diego is a sports town with multiple teams calling the city home. The Aztecs and Padres have the San Diego spirit that energizes employees during every tailgate-style picnic. For food options, be sure to serve beef burgers and hot dogs, paired with traditional potato salad and homestyle coleslaw for the perfect menu.

Fun activities you could offer at a tailgate picnic include a fast-pitch baseball game, bubble soccer, bag toss, obstacle course, or even rock climbing. To get everyone in the mood, decorate the tents and booths with team-style pennants and banners, as well as your company logo.


Halloween is just around the corner, and if you haven’t started planning your office celebration, consider a Halloween-themed picnic! Our South of the Border menu is a perfect way to celebrate the holiday, with grilled baja tacos, Mexican rice, traditional refried beans, and tortilla chips and salsa. Indulge your sweet tooth with fudge brownies and lemon bars.

To celebrate, hold a costume contest and set up a Halloween photo booth. You could even play Wrap The Mummy, Halloween Candies Guessing Game, Capture the Pumpkin, and Halloween Storytime.

Creative & Artsy

If you have artistic and creative employees, consider hosting a picnic that will let their talents shine. Fun activities you could offer include ceramic painting, spin art frisbee, and airbrush face painting. While you’re enjoying the creative challenges, satisfy the taste buds with Southwestern chicken breast sandwiches, grilled Hawaiian Mahi Mahi, basil penne pasta salad, and citrus vinaigrette iceberg salad.

For decor, set up colorful photo booths, one-of-a-kind centerpieces, and fun balloon sculptures! You could also call Picnic People and we’ll take care of the decor and the food — from start to finish!
