Event Spotlight: Company Family Picnic

1:46 PM


The classic company picnic has been going on for years. For many businesses both small and large, the summer party is a tradition, a staple and an integral part of their corporate culture. It's a day when employees and their families come together to celebrate success, accomplishments and being part of a team that wants to give back. At every one of our corporate picnic events we strive to bring a balance of fun and games for guests of all ages to enjoy. We do that with a mix of larger than life entertainment, classic carnival tents and nostalgic lawn games reimagined for a new and fresh take. 

carnival tent

 Our vibrant carnival tents are a perfect staple for any family picnic. For one, it is a beautiful piece of decor on an empty field. Secondly, it provides fun for a wide age range. For the little ones we provide step stools and many chances so they feel like a winner. For the more mature children, these games are a welcomed break from technology. 

water balloon toss

A great DJ and classic games are a great way to involve the adults and children. Plus, who doesn't love a water balloon toss on a hot summer day? Moreover, a DJ can entertainment a large amount of people with games like these.  

giant billiard game

Our giant billiards game is a great spin on a classic game. Played with your feet, this pool game is different and enjoyable.

spin art

Crafts are great interactive fun that allows kids to express their creativity. Spin art is a always popular as guests pour paint onto a spinning canvas. At this event frisbees were the canvas.

face painting

Face painting and temporary tattoos are always a hit! Ou professional artists use non toxic, professional paint. 

pop-a-shot, basketball

Our pop-a-shot basketball hoops are jut one more options for guests to be entertained and have fun! This add-on item is an easy form of entertainment for guests of all ages. 

promo items, swag, branded giveaways

With our division Promo Kings, we can provide any promotional item you may wish to offer your guests. This event had water squirters and umbrellas but beach towels and cooler bags are other great items to offer your guests at the summer outing.

Transformation Tuesday

3:22 PM

One of the best parts of our industry is having the opportunity to transform a space and create the event of someone's dreams! Whether it is making a traditional wedding venue into a rock arena, transporting an entire company into Alice's Wonderland or creating an out of this world celebration for 1,000 guests, each transformation leaves us excited and inspired.

wedding rock concert

Joanne and Scott were two special people who had a unique vision for their wedding. They were not too concerned about the dress, the tux, the flowers or anything else for that matter. What they most wanted was to make their wedding reception a rock concert! To achieve this we installed a full stage and upgraded lighting to get the full concert effect. To make the night complete, the groom designed tie dyed band t-shirts for favors!
Corporate Holiday Party
 Every year our clients challenge us to come up with new and exciting themes for their holiday party. For the Alice in Wonderland theme our goal was to bring in large scale decor that made an impact to the crowded room of 1,000 guests. To achieve that we installed a giant screen that projected the 2010 version of the movie. We also made a gaming area with artificial turf rug, oversized chess pieces and regal lounge furniture and staged three foot playing cards around the room. For added drama we lighted the room in red. Centerpieces were Mad Hatter hats and tea sets filled with flowers.
Corporate holiday party
For the "Sky's the Limit" theme at Capitale in NYC we knew that to fully transform such a unique space we needed to have high drama. Hence, our hanging aerialist from a 65 ft ceiling! Along with this amazing entertainment were custom designed metal spheres with floral accents.  To complete our transformation the venue was lit in blues, purples and reds.

When one of our favorite clients said they had a superhero themed sales conference we brainstormed to create a vintage comic book vision. For their welcome dinner at Gustavino's in NYC, we had custom made letters wrapped in vintage comic strip paper spell out their company name.

Versatility of the Photo Booth!

5:36 PM

Photo booths are nothing new. They have been at events for years. However, the look, feel and versatility of them has improved greatly. For one, those enclosed booths have led way to open kiosks that allow large groups to take pictures. Also, plain white backdrops are a thing of the past. Beautiful gold or silver sequins backdrops are perfect for weddings, Sweet 16's and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. But photo booths aren't limited to social parties! Our corporate clients love the addition to their events, especially when we can add custom logos and additional artwork to each print out. Guests get to take home fun memories and the client gets to market themselves and collect all the photos on a drive post event, which in many cases are the BEST photos of the night!

Go Big or Go Home!

6:23 PM

Eventccarnival stiltwalker

This year Event Kings decided to go big or go home! When the corporate picnic season came the trend was over-sized classics like billiards, darts, chess, traffic jam and Jenga. Even our entertainment was larger than life. For one of our corporate carnival events a 10' stilt-walker roamed the event both setting the tone and wowing the guests. Dressed as a ring leader, this interactive entertainment elevated the party. 
Event game giant billiards

 Our giant billiards proved to be a big hit at our company picnics for guests of all ages. All you need is space for this interactive game, we bring the rest. Players roll the balls into the pockets and have opportunities to hit others out of the way.

Inflatable darts, dart game, event inflatables

Our giant inflatable dart board makes a statement and provides endless fun. No sharp points here! Guests throw cones and try to hit the bulls-eye.
chess, giant chess, event chess

Our giant chess game is not only a fun twist on the classic game but it also beautiful decor for your event. Guests move the light weight pieces to their places and try to capture their opponents King!

Jenga is the ultimate party game and this giant version makes it even better! Reaching over five feet high at the end, this competitive game draws in spectators, making this game not only fun for the player but entertainment for all guests.

Our giant Traffic Jam game is perfect for teambuilding and fun events alike. Your goal is to escape the traffic jam and get your car through the exit.

Even our balloons were big this year! These three foot balloons were a simple but elegant way to fill a big tent. Adding color and height, these balloons provide a wow factor at a reasonable price.
