Plan The Entertainment

We always recommend entertainment at a picnic, the style of which varies depending on the number and ages of your intended guests. Entertainment comes in such a wide variety of options for every event, and each venue will have its own challenges and opportunities. Do you have multiple ages in need of entertainment? Many picnics require entertainment for children, teens and adults to incorporate fun for everyone at your picnic

Taking Care Of The Details

We will sort out all of the details in this part of the planning, figuring out everything from your event setup to your final menu. Our partner, Nelva’s studio will be able to take care of other items needed for your event who can supply items you will need—and all at very fair and reasonable prices because of our longstanding relationships—which means you do not have to coordinate with anyone else.

It’s Time For Your Picnic

Once all has been planned and the day of your event is finally here. Specific information such as setup/meeting time for the event will be given to us in advance to ensure our team has everything in place. What About Bugs? Of course, any outdoor event is at-risk for bugs. Mosquitoes can be kept at bay with mosquito-repelling candles and torches. Other insects can be controlled with bug spray. We have found—through plenty of experience—that when you properly dispose of the trash, the bugs will not find you. What Happens To The Food Containers After The Event Is Over? No problem. Everything is disposable and can be thrown away, or can be taken and used for your purpose.
