Sharing ideas as we plan our company picnic is part of the fun.

Our annual company picnic this August is one of the highlights of the year. Part of the fun is collaborating on the planning. From the menu to the location to the family-style activities, we get really wonderful ideas.

One resource brought into the mix was this article from Tasty Catering listing many tips on themes and activities, as well as links for more resources picnic planners, like checklists and recipes for frozen drinks. Definitely check it out before your organization’s next outdoor gathering. Just look what our team thought about the suggestions:

“I love these ideas a lot! I’m all about team building and getting to work together with my co-workers on group tasks. So, the idea of a Survivor-themed picnic is right up my alley. I think the combination of fun and team strategy is perfect for a work picnic.”
