It’s the first day of fall, and in our opinion, this crisp weather we’ve been having is perfect for some picnicking. 🍂 Erin here, and I partook in my first ever picnic this past summer. It was the perfect way to spend time outside with friends and family — some of whom were still social distancing — and simply have a few hours to converse, play yard games, and nibble on yummy foods.
But it’s no small feat putting it all together — the food, the drinks, the setup… wouldn’t it be nice if someone could do it all for you, like in those period dramas? Which is why we were thrilled to find out there are now companies in Raleigh doing just that. Here’s a quick look:
Choose from the Classic or Party options, starting at $95 for two guests. Inclusions feature blankets, pillows, and a selection of food and drink + you can pick from add-ons, such as a balloon arch, polaroid camera with film, games, and a brunch bar.
Themes include the French Country Picnic, the Whimsical Garden Picnic, and the Enchanted Fall Picnic. The cost starts at $139 for two and setup lasts three hours. Add-ons include an acoustic guitar, croquet + a professional photoshoot.
The Picnic Basket Catering company is now offering contactless, themed baskets delivered to your home. Choose from movie night, game night, and date night options starting at $60 for four people + customize your meal with foods like lasagna and grilled chicken street tacos.
