Our picnic team got together to discuss some of their favorite parts of a picnic. Other than delicious, juicy, fresh food and unique menu items—such as street tacos and our Baja picnic menu—each one had a different thing to say about his or her favorite picnic things.
My favorite part about a picnic is the entertainment. DJs (love to dance), music and performances—live music really takes a party and picnic to the next level. When a picnic has a really talented emcee and lively crowd, there’s nothing better. After all, that’s what most of our picnics are for—bringing companies together for a little bonding and some fun!
I specialize in upscale celebrations—weddings and special events—and I really love bringing that upscale touch to outdoor events and picnics. Glamorous grilled menus, such as steak and salmon, and chic themed décor can really take a sunny picnic to a new level of sheer elegance. It’s perfect for picnic weddings, company milestones, outdoor galas and more.
Activities, to me, are the most special part of a picnic. The kids are effortlessly entertained with sports games, crafts, obstacle courses and inflatables, and the adults have just as much fun channeling their inner child with water balloon tosses, softball games and relay races. Picnic activities always make me laugh.
Themes! I love when a picnic has a theme that is carried throughout every aspect of the event—from the menu and décor to the entertainment and party favors. Guests can really get into the themes, and people just seem to have an overall better time. With Pinterest and all of those awesome picnic ideas out there, it makes me happy to be able to bring those into fruition.
