We have a wonderful client that does an end of summer event for their employees and their families every year. This year we knew we had to be economical (the budget had been slashed by two thirds from last year – ouch!!) But we knew it had to be chic no matter what! So we decided to do a new take on the typical company picnic and create an “Old Time (Country Chic) Americana Picnic”
(thank you to Martha Stewart for showing evevryone that country can be chic!)
To set the tone… a perfect venue with outdoor and indoor space(with the weather we’ve had this year!…hello rain plan!)
Guests were greeted at the tent with small individual picnic baskets.
Each picnic basket filled with a checkered blanket and tons of fun toys for everyone
We decorated the interior of the tent to have a warm and fun old time Americana country fair feel.
Complete with a beautiful yummy pie station
An empty grass area was turned into comfy cool seating areas for guests to eat and chill out
Inexpensive Decor Details like wrapping silverware in bandannas – make a “standard company picnic” into a CHIC gathering of family and friends.
Even a standard BBQ menu can be chic and inviting!
And don’t forget how awesome it is to have PONY RIDES – everyone loves a pony!
Here’s to making your next picnic-bbq a chic and fun day for everyone!
