4 Corporate Picnic Themes

Outdoor bull riding activity

Ready to plan your next corporate picnic? Or maybe your first? Here are a few theme ideas to get you and your team excited about your corporate picnic.

1. Western/Rodeo

Take a ride back in time with a Western themed picnic. Encourage attendees to dress up and offer activities like pony rides, meat carving stations, horseshoe tossing, and photo booths. Picnic People’s Classic Menu will help tie your event and theme together, with foods like cheeseburgers, hot dogs, Molasses Baked Beans, potato salad, Smoked BBQ Beef Sandwich, and Home-Style Coleslaw.

2. Hawaiian Luau

If you can’t fly to Hawaii for a picnic, the next best thing is to host a Hawaiian Luau-themed picnic, right here in San Diego. Transform any venue or outdoor location into Hawaiian paradise with themed decor, leis, tropical plants and flowers, dancers, and even fire breathers. Picnic People’s Kamaaina Luau Menu features Hawaiian favorites like Kalua Pork, Hawaiian Chicken, Coconut Rice, Luau Mac Salad, and Hawaiian Rolls with Butter.

3. Beach Party

Every day in San Diego is a great beach day, so why not also make it a picnic day? Fun activities to do at your beach picnic could include volleyball, sandcastle contests, flying a kite, hula hooping, and a limbo dance competition! A beach picnic calls for BBQ, so be sure to check out Picnic People’s Build Your Own BBQ Menu, featuring California Oak Smoked Chicken, Southern Style Pulled Pork, St. Louis Style Pork Ribs, Hickory Slow Smoked Brisket, Mixed Grilled Vegetables, Tomato Basil Penne Pasta Salad, Corn and Black Bean Salad, and tempting desserts like fudge brownies, lemon bars, and chocolate chip cookies.

4. International Culture

Take a trip abroad by hosting a culturally-themed picnic. Whichever country or culture you choose, research the activities and unique customs enjoyed by that group and get creative incorporating ideas into your corporate picnic. If you choose a Mexican, Latin American, or South American theme, browse Picnic People’s South of the Border Menu for mouth watering food. We’re happy to bring the flavor to your picnic with Street Tacos, Mexican Rice, Refried Beans, and Fresh Tortilla Chips & Salsa.
