It is definitely time to celebrate when an important anniversary for a company rolls around. But deciding what kind of party to throw can be difficult. The presence of more women and more diversity in the workplace means that the party needs to be suitable for everyone. Whatever setting, activities and theme you chose, make sure your company anniversary party is a thank-you to the people who keep the business going - the employees.

Celebrate the company's anniversary by hosting a picnic with a backyard barbecue feel for your employees. If there is a large lawn at your business, host the party there. If not, try hosting the party at a local park. Serve traditional picnic or backyard barbecue foods. Purchase an assortment of sub sandwiches and sides, such as coleslaw, potato salad and fruit salad, from a local restaurant. Alternatively, bring a few grills to the picnic location, and cook some hot dogs and hamburgers.
Maybe the business is quite old. If you are celebrating a 20th, 30th or even 50th company anniversary party, theme the party around the decade when the business was founded. For example, if the business was started in the 1960s, play music from the '60s, and decorate with a 1960s feel. Think dyed-fabric, lava lamps and posters of rock bands from the era. Employees and their families can dress up according to the theme. They could dress as famous people from the 1960s.
Rather than simply having a dinner or a party, take your employees on an activity that lets them get away from the workplace and have a little fun. Charter a boat, and take everyone for a cruise on a nearby river or the ocean. Alternatively, have the company party at a bowling alley or a local video game arcade, depending on the age and preferences of your employees. A hike along a local trail can be a perfect bonding experience for you and your employees. Consider giving your employees a few options and letting them vote on what kind of party they want.
