If you are planning to have a company picnic in the summer then the summer splash theme is for you. With the summer splash theme, there are a few sub-different variations you can have like a Mediterranean Inspired Picnic, Survivor Beach Style, or an “under the sea” event. You can complete any summer theme with the use of picnic tables, bright colors, and beach umbrellas. If you are going to do something with water be sure to have good restrooms nearby for people to change. You can often rent portable restroom trailers that have a shower built into them.
Menu all depends on your final theme but when hosting a summer picnic we recommend you design a food menu that is light and refreshing. If you are looking for more ideas for food for your summer company picnic then check out this article from country living. Summer Picnic Food Ideas
