Now that spring is finally here, it’s time to start thinking about your annual corporate picnic. If a picnic isn’t an annual event for your office, late spring and into early summer are the perfect times to organize such an event. Company-wide picnics help to boost morale and allow for a time for people to hang out with their work friends and families all at once. But no party is complete without an abundance of delicious food prepared by a local catering service. These quick and easy tips will help you plan for a successful and memorable corporate picnic that everyone will enjoy.
Create Your Budget
Your picnic budget is the first thing you need to take into consideration before planning your event. Since there are many things you need to research and book in advance, it’s important that you first figure out exactly how much you’re able to spend. Once you’ve come to a number, decide whether or not you can manage your employees to bring their friends and families to this event. This is the norm for most office picnics as it creates a family-friendly atmosphere and allows for your employees to get to know each other on a much more personal level.
Pick a Date and Book a Venue
Doing the proper research when choosing the correct kind of venue can seem endless, but it is one of the most important aspects of the entire event. There’s no picnic without a venue! If it’s warm enough, look into hosting the picnic at a local swim club. Your employees can dine and drink by the pool while their kids enjoy swimming in the pool. Another great place to host a large outdoor event is a public park. Contact local clubs and parks to see what their availability is. It’s always a good rule of thumb to secure a venue and date sooner than later, as you don’t want to be stuck with limited options.
Find a Great Catering Service
The most important part of any event is the food! When searching for a local catering company, make sure you choose one that has something for everyone. From gourmet salads to delicious wraps and sandwiches, you want everyone to enjoy a healthy spring meal while they are together for a work event.
