Team Building Events

Plan a Team Building Event at Historic Acres

Having a cohesive and unified team is crucial to accomplishing your business’ goals. Hosting a team building activity can help with silos between your departments or bring together members who will rely heavily on each other to get the job done. We have the flexibility to accommodate to a variety of team building requests from anything as simple as outdoor grilling to more complex events such as live performances and mock gameshows.

Having trouble deciding on an activity? Below are some simple ideas to start out with:

Please note that Historic Acres does not include the setup or application of these games in any packages. These are merely recommendations to get your team engaged.

1. Guess It

In this game, you will break into groups of 3 to 4. One person in each group is the ‘demonstrator’ while the rest are guessers. First, choose a single person to decide on an item. That person (typically the president or CEO) will whisper the item to all of the demonstrators, who will go back to their groups. The demonstrator will, without talking, try to demonstrate a use for that item. The first group to guess the item correctly will win the round.

2. Find The Lie

This game involves 5+ people, if you have more then break into groups.

Everyone should be in a circle facing one another. Each person will construct 3 facts about themselves as well as 1 lie, which should be as realistic as possible. One at a time, go around and have each person say all 4 things. All other members get 1 guess as to which one is the lie. After everyone has guessed, the person reveals the answer.

 

3. Positive Outlook

Split into groups of 2 people. The first person will explain something negative that happened in their life, then the other person will have to take that story and explain it back to them in the most positive way possible. This is a fun activity for getting employees to open up to each other and doesn’t take up much time.

Anniversary Party Ideas & Tips for You.

Date & Time to Determine the Location & Venue

In most cases, you’ll want to choose a date that is around the couple’s actual wedding anniversary date. We recommend trying to set down a date a few months in advance, for a few reasons. First, it allows those guests coming in from out of town to plan travel arrangements accordingly. Second, the sooner you begin to plan, the more likely a wedding anniversary party venue is available on or around your preferred date.

Consider an Anniversary Party Theme

While this step is not entirely necessary, it is fun to give something to help plan the rest of the party around. Whether you want to celebrate the decade the couple got married in, host a faux-black-tie event, or do something different like a luau, having an idea for your anniversary party theme will make planning the other steps easier.

Send Out Invitations

For a larger, more formal event, we’d recommend sending out paper invites to stress the importance and formality. If you’re having a smaller event, phone calls and digital invites will do the trick. Regardless of how you’re sending them, be sure your invites include date & times, dress code, location, and whether or not the couple has a gift registry (or even wants gifts at all).

Determine Catering Options After RSVPs

Once you have an idea of how many people will be attending, catering options for food and drink become easier to plan. Finding a caterer is much easier with our connections, and then you can begin to plan the menu. Also, remember to take people’s dietary restrictions into account.

Use Decoration Ideas from the Original Wedding or Time Era

Using the same color scheme as the couple’s wedding is a very nice touch. This can be used for the cake and decorations. Depending upon what anniversary it is, you can look into what the color, traditional gift, and flowers are. Other ideas for decorations include displaying the bride’s wedding dress and a slideshow of photos from the day. If you have chosen a theme, be sure to check out DIY options for decorations on sites like Pinterest.

Optional: Schedule Entertainment & Book A Photographer

Having a DJ or live band is completely optional but will keep people enjoying themselves for hours on end. A nice touch is to make sure the DJ or band knows some of the couple’s favorite songs and songs played on their wedding day.

While the photographer is also optional, having moments captured in time by a professional will always be a nice touch. This also allows everyone attending the party to be focused on celebrating instead of worrying about having to take photos or videos.
