Anyone planning a picnic may find that a theme can help add structure to the décor and activities as well as tie it all neatly together. They can be a great way for your attendees to get involved and it can be a fun participatory activity in itself, while creating plenty of photo opportunities.
Themes can also create a buzz prior to the event as guests discuss how they can interpret the theme, and what they may expect to see based on the theme. A perfect theme can transform your picnic, improve guest experience and only make the whole thing better.
Below are the top 10 picnic themes we have seen at events in no particular order:
Howdy Partner! Saddle up on a pony ride
experience a petting zoo,
or take the challenge on a mechanical bull
. Scarf down a mouth watering BBQ brisket sandwich and then lasso a cactus
or beat the rattle snake in our Radical Wrangler!
Decorate using hay stacks and barrels. Hand out cowboy hats and bandannas to make your event truly authentic.
Enjoy the sites and sounds of a classic american sports themed picnic! Chow down on Hot dogs
and cracker jacks, test your speed with an inflatable speed pitch
, set up a softball, football or volleyball game for you and your guests to enjoy! Have your guests come in their favorite sports jersey.
Ahoy Thar Matees! Grab an eye patch and pirate hat, then head over to the giant inflatable pirate ship! Test your aim with a bottle of rum ring toss
, or land a ring on captain hook’s hook
! You can even plan a scavenger treasure hunt, and play many pirate themed games.
Grab a sombrero, eat some Fajitas
and listen to the sounds of the mariachi band while you try your skills at the Pinata or bounce in the jungle moonwalk.
Hand out beads and masks for your guests to wear. Bust out Beignets with the donut station
as you watch street performers
amaze and amuse you. Decorate with green gold and purple decor.
