No matter what type of event you’re planning, choosing a theme will set the tone for the occasion. Do you want it to be laid-back and casual? Competitive and ready for action? Formal and ceremonious? Your theme is meant to drive decisions about venues, menu selections, music and entertainment, and more. Most of all, a theme will assist you in making your upcoming event more effective and of course, more fun! Here are six tried-and-true themes that we recommend adding to your next event with Picnic People St. Louis.
Your guests will be transported back to simpler times when you add a traditional Country Faire theme to your event. Hay bales, wagon wheels, and windsocks will set the scene, while flavorsome fair food and creative carnival games will add entertainment to the celebration. If you want to make the day extra interactive, bringing a corral of farm animals is an unforgettable way to do so.
Three cheers for a Red-White-and-Blue picnic! Pair our favored All-American Menu with patriotic décor and customary family relays and races and your guests will have a Great American time. The Great American theme is perfect for a Memorial Day picnic, tailgating before a Rams football game or to kick off a St. Louis Cardinals game!
There’s no worries, just happy guests at a Jamaican Me Crazy event! Guests will go wild over our Jamaican Jerk Chicken and Spicy Cajun Sausage from the Caribbean Cooler menu. Throw in our Fun Facilitator with Calypso music and add a hilarious Hula Hoop contest and an exhilarating game of Limbo. You’ll love when your guests say, “Stop Mon, Jamaican Me Crazy!”
Aloha! Bring Honolulu fun to your next St. Louis company picnic with a Paradise Island theme inspired by our delicious Kamaaina Luau menu. Our Pineapple Teriyaki Glazed Chicken complemented by colorful flower leis, seashells, and grass table skirts will make your picnic feel like a day of paradise. Step up the fun by starting a Hawaiian Shirt contest, where your guests can show off their most flamboyant island wear.
May the best team win with this lively theme perfect for a family or company with a competitive streak! Choose one of our healthy menus to fuel up, then participate in Sports of All Sorts, like tug-of-war, lawn games, or get your adrenaline pumping on an inflatable obstacle course. An annual softball or kickball tournament is an extraordinary way to unite groups of people while also increasing trust and friendship.
Yee-haw! Your guests will be doing the boot scootin’ boogie when you invite them to a Wild West Round-up! Our Smoked Brisket and Texas Style Grilled Chicken from the Longhorn BBQ menu will have you hollerin’ for more and bandana-style linens, hay bales, and cowboy hats will delight your guests. We’ll even have our staff dress up like cowpoke and outlaws to make you feel like the best in the West!
