FAQ

Q: How does a picnic book work?
A: We set up your picnic of choice and have it ready upon arrival. We’ll be at the site to greet you and make sure nobody else decides to have your picnic! Once you arrive, we leave you to enjoy your experience for the reserved time. You are responsible for the items until we return to pack them up at the arranged time. If you would like to leave earlier than this time, please provide 30 mins notice by call or text. Once we return to pack up, you are free to leave and enjoy the rest of your day or evening.
