A corporate event is a fantastic opportunity for everyone in your company to get together and create special memories, and it no doubt encourages more loyalty and camaraderie.
But if you are planning one and find it challenging to come up with something special, perhaps you can create a theme for it. The theme of your event will set the entire tone, and you can base all your activities and entertainment around it – making it easier to plan your event as well. But whilst there may be a whole range of themes to choose from, some have more merits than most. Here, then, is your guide to some of the best and most popular themes for a corporate family event.
- A beach party
Everyone loves the beach – and spending an entire day under the warm sun is a definite crowd-pleaser. The summer season is, of course, ideal for a day at the beach, and it brings to mind everything from barbecues to swimming to cold beverages and lots of fun and laughter. But even if you are in the middle of winter, you can still set up an indoor beach party complete with beach balls, real sand, beach umbrellas, and so on. Make your event even more special with live entertainment or a DJ, and set up some game booths that everyone will love.
- A carnival or funfair
The carnival or funfair has been around for ages, and it still draws the crowd – it’s simply perfect for the young and not-so-young! You can have it as an outdoor affair or an indoor one, but be sure to include carnival or funfair favourites like tilt-a-whirls, dodgem cars, and game stalls. You can even set up a bouncy castle for the young ‘uns and a bungee trampoline or climbing wall. For food, go all out with special carnival food that brings nostalgia, such as popcorn, candy floss, hot dogs, candy, and other delectable sweets. A funfair hire specialist can make this theme possible, and you can add more to the mix with circus entertainers, magicians, and a mini petting zoo.
- A Winter Wonderland
Since Christmas is just around the corner, why not make it a Winter Wonderland event if you’re planning a Christmas affair? It’s the perfect way to celebrate the season, and you can bring the magic with snow angels, crystals, snow globes, and more. Make it even more special by inviting Santa Claus and his elves, and give everyone a jolly good time.
Whilst Christmas is almost upon us, Halloween is fast coming as well – and if you’re raring to give your employees and their kids a treat, a Halloween-themed family event is ideal. Have everyone dress up in their favourite costume and pack your venue to the brim with ghouls, monsters, angels, ghosts, vampires, and everything else. You can bring everyone together to enjoy Halloween-inspired snacks and drinks and create more buzz around your Halloween event with haunted train rides and a spooky haunted house tour.
- A garden party
If you want something more laid-back and casual, you can always opt for a garden party event, and it’s the perfect chance for everyone to relax. Garden parties aren’t just great for adults, as you can also keep the kids entertained with games, rides, and contests!
