Fun Corporate Picnic Themes To Try In 2023

Event Planners San Diego

Treat your employees to an exciting start to the new year with a corporate picnic. There are so many themes to choose from, you’ll want to plan a second, third, and many more picnics this year.

1. Around-the-world

Travel the world with foods that represent a variety of cultures. From German potato salad and Polish sausage, to authentic Italian pizza and Japanese Bento dishes, these foods can be paired with cultural decorations and even costumes.

2. Caribbean

Get away to paradise with Caribbean pig roast, jerk chicken, and diverse colors that will put employees in a festive mood.

3. Fiesta

Throw a Friday Fiesta with street tacos, corn on the cob, ranchero beans, and Mexican rice. Bring a piñata, Mexican party banners, and authentic centerpieces to create a truly authentic experience.

4. Sports

As the Super Bowl is in full swing, celebrate your favorite teams with a sports themed picnic. Encourage employees to wear their favorite team’s jerseys and dress in team colors.

5. Ballpark

Bring back the good ‘ole days with a ballpark-themed picnic. Hotdogs, cotton candy, popcorn, and chicken fingers are just a few foods your picnic shouldn’t go without.

6. Carnival

Host a carnival-themed picnic any time of year with funnel cake fries, kettle corn, caramel apples, lemonade, and fried ice cream. The food options are as limitless as your imagination.

7. Southern

Bring back momma’s best cooking with BBQ chicken, brisket, and ribs. Be sure to offer Southern-themed activities, as well, such as pony rides and corn hole.

8. Western

Similar to the Southern theme, a Western-style picnic also features mouthwatering barbecue and lemonade, but also comes with a cowboy or two.

9. Mardi Gras

If you’re throwing an adult-only picnic, decorate it with vivid yellow, green, and purple colors, as well as sparkles, sequins, and masks. Serve colorful and flavorful frozen drinks to keep guests entertained.

10. Casino

Use monopoly money to play Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, and Texas Hold ‘Em with employees. Prepare prizes and rewards to give out at the end of the picnic.

11. Block party

On the other hand, if employees will be bringing their families and little ones to the picnic, a block party picnic is a great way to entertain guests of all ages. Be sure to serve traditional burgers, hot dogs, watermelon, potato salad, and lemonade to celebrate.
