What does the day of my picnic look like?

You have already selected your date, time, and location so all you need to do is show up! I’ll be on site before your start time to set up everything you will need and will hand it off to you when you arrive. If you need to leave before your allotted time, you must contact me 30 minutes prior. You are responsible for all of the picnic items until I have arrived. If you leave early without communicating and something happens to the picnic set up, you will be charged in full for all items.

What if it rains on my scheduled picnic date?

We can move the picnic to an indoor location, such as a favorite room in your home or covered patio. There are no refunds on picnic experiences, however, I’m happy to reschedule your picnic for a later date, should you not want to move to an indoor location. There is also an enclosed bubble tent option you may purchase, as an add on that will protect you from light rain and cooler temperatures.
