What happens if it rains?

We understand that weather can be unpredictable-- especially in Minnesota. We allow complete refunds for picnics at any time, although photographer, charcuterie, and violinist add-on fees are not refundable in cases of cancellations since we use other vendors for these services.

What is included in my picnic?

We currently have two picnic options-- a deluxe package with a bunch of great add-ons, or an a-la-carte picnic that allows you to customize it exactly how you want it! 

 

Can I bring a photographer to my picnic, or do I need to use yours?

You can definitely bring your own photographer! We think that our picnics are the perfect setting for photos and we love to reshare them on our social media. Please tag us in photos that you share!

 

Can I bring my own food?

Absolutely! 

 

Are dogs allowed? 

Yes! We love bringing our pups to picnics. Please let us know and we will provide some treats at no additional cost. 

 

Can you do other locations?

Absolutely! Our "default" is Boom Island Park, because we think it has some of the prettiest views of the Mississippi River and the Minneapolis skyline. We can do other parks, backyards, indoor, etc. Please inquire with us as a small travel fee may apply!

 

 

Where do you get your cheese and charcuterie boards?

We partner with a few different caterers and local cheese aficionados in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. 

 

Do you offer tipis for rent?

We do not. As a non-Native American business owner, this doesn't feel quite right to me. We offer lots of other great add-ons though!
