What to Look For in Your Corporate Picnic Venue
When choosing the best possible place for your company picnic, there are a lot of questions to have answers to before hand. You might have already read about some of the benefits of having one, and maybe already have a number of invites in mind. But what are some questions you should ask about the venue itself, and what the day will look like? We’ve identified four questions to ask when choosing the best company picnic venue.
1) What’s on the Menu?
The menu that’s available at your picnic venue is the most important thing. You’ll need to think about what everyone in your company likes and doesn’t like. Your picnic venue should also work with you to create a menu for everyone to enjoy. Whether it’s adding on a specialty menu upgrade like a clambake, or planning ahead for any dietary restrictions, the event venue should work with you to ensure that everyone’s preferences or dietary needs are met.
Also, consider the area where your guests will eat. Is it covered so your picnic is rain or shine? Fortunately, Frogbridge has a covered pavilion where your guests will dine rain or shine.
2) What Facilities & Amenities Are Available?
You’ll want to assess what amenities and facilities are available to you when you book your picnic. If your picnic takes place in the summer, maybe your guests would enjoy some water activities in pools or lakes. Think about what your staff would enjoy and let your event planner know what types of activities you would like included. If it’s not included in your picnic package, let your event planner know you’d like to add it and we can work with you to maximize your budget.
3) If You’re Inviting Families, is There Family Friendly Entertainment Available?
If you’re planning on inviting your employees’ families to your picnic, you’ll want to ensure that your venue has plenty of family-friendly entertainment for all ages. Frogbridge allows you to add face painters, tattoo artists, balloon sculptors, fortune tellers, and more!
4) How Will I Let Everyone Know About The Picnic?
If you’ve tried to plan your own off-site event or picnic before, you know that this part can be tough. Frogbridge makes this easy by creating a customized landing page that you can send via email. Your guests will be able to add their event invite directly to outlook or another calendar app, and will receive information on how to RSVP, what their picnic package includes, the day’s menu, and directions to the event site.
We will also provide you with a one page branded flyer and a schedule of events for you to hang up in your office.
