Host a Company Picnic for Out of Office Fun

Personalized-Backyard-Picnic-Stand-InWith warmer weather here, your employees are going to want to be outside! Host a company picnic for fun as an office, out of the office. ShindigZ is having its own company barbeque this week and also has a fun selection of picnic party supplies to help you create a fantastic, memorable office picnic.

Use a banner for welcoming employees to the picnic or for announcing the event in advance. ShindigZ has a bunch of banners for various themes or parties. Add a Create-A-Banner which you have customized with your own design and wording. The possibilities are seemingly limitless! The banners are an awesome way to announce the picnic, welcome employees, or add a great company message year-round. Plus, if your picnic becomes an annual, monthly, or quarterly event, the banner can be used over and over again.

Let the great outdoors do most of the decorating for your picnic for you, but some additional decorations can go a long way toward adding some fun to your office picnic. Stand a Personalized Chef Standee Menu by your entrance or buffet line to announce what’s cooking! Our Luau Cabana Decorations add a fun, summery look. The Luau Cabana stands 11 feet tall by 8 feet wide by 6 feet deep and is made from corrugated cardboard and raffia. It adds a little shade and a perfect photo area to your event. The Luau Bar is 4 feet tall by 4 feet 2 inches wide and 14 inches deep and includes a raffia table skirt. It’s perfect for adding to your buffet table or drinks area.

Table decorations are the biggest component of picnic decorating. Cover your picnic tables with red and white gingham checked plastic tablecovers. You can even spread a few out on the ground for people who want a more traditional picnic setting. Add a centerpiece that’s festive and functional! Create a cluster of Real Coconut Cups in the center of your table and guests can take them to drink out of after they’ve seen how great the tables look. If guests take them home as favors, they even cut down on your clean-up time. Another great picnic centerpiece is our Americana Star Centerpiece. It’s especially great for this time of year, with all the patriotic holidays like Memorial Day and the 4th of July. For something simpler, try our Colorful 3D Star Cutout Centerpiece.

For tableware, use plastic tableware and cutlery in your company’s colors or festive red, white, and blue. The plastic tableware is sturdy and makes for simple, easy cleanup. Plus, it’s heavier than paper products, so it’s better for outdoor use. ShindigZ also has personalized stadium cups that coordinate with the plastic tableware and can be custom imprinted with your company logo and slogan! If you want a bolder look, check out our huge array of printed tableware patterns, such as patriotic tableware, luau tableware, or BBQ tableware. There’s tons of options for creating just the event you want.

We have all the serving ware, chafing dishes, pitchers, and trays you need for hosting a fantastic picnic. If you’ve never catered an event before, our items are simple and affordable, perfect for stocking up on to keep the company events running.

Our Etch-It Party Cups are a great way to keep down waste and add a personal touch to your party supplies. Guests can etch their names or other information and designs onto the cups and keep track of their drink during the whole company picnic.

Another way to serve drinks and boost spirits is with a customized water bottle. These make great promotional items as well as practical gifts for employees. Have the side of one of our 32 oz plastic sport bottles imprinted with your company logo and serve water or lemonade in them during the picnic. Employees and guests will love using them outside of work too!

Our inflatable coolers are a picnic party hit! We have beach ball inflatable coolers, inflatable palm tree coolers, and inflatable tiki drink coolers that keep drinks cold while also adding a fun decorative touch!

A picnic is also a great place for activities and team-building games. We have kits perfect for simple, fun picnic games. Add some Luau Party Music from our party CD to add the fun mood, while guests play the Can Toss Game, Egg Race Game, Duck Fishing Game, or Bean Bag Toss Game. Don’t forget cones to facilitate the races!

Guests will love taking their pictures as ketchup and mustard bottles in our Personalized Backyard Stand-In. You can add your own wording to the top, making for great commemorative photos.

Finish off the event with favors! Our Personalized Gingham Mint Tin is a perfect choice. Add your company or event details to the top and hand out the mint tins, filled with ½ oz of mints to each guest as they get their food or as they leave. The tins are simple, useful and great looking, while the mints make an awesome after-picnic treat.

  • While organizing an intimate picnic, plan for the right foods, the things to carry and many other things.

    Do not leave major issues to chance and all the ideas you have in mind are certainly major. Take time to really think about what people you love would think if you did not have a particular plan.
