Cancellation Policy​

For cancellations more than 48 hours in advance, you can use your deposit towards a rescheduled picnic (within 365 days). If the deposit is not used within this time frame, it will be forfeited. Any cancellations with less than 48 hours notice will result in full forfeiture of the deposit. 

 

Weather​

Unfortunately, the weather is out of our control. We do not offer refunds due to inclement weather, but are happy to reschedule your picnic to another date. We require at least 4 hours notice of this change. We encourage you to have a back-up plan in place as we are happy to set up the picnic indoors. High winds may impact our ability to offer certain decor (arch, glassware).

 *Please note that any food add-ons require 48 hour cancellation notice, regardless of weather. You will still be responsible for the cost of the food as we are not able to cancel pre-prepared perishables from our vendors with less than 48 hours notice.

Damage/Loss Policy

You are responsible for all picnic décor during your event. Damage/loss may result in additional charges. Please do not leave your picnic unattended.

How long can we enjoy our picnic for and what if we leave earlier?

Our all-inclusive picnics are a maximum of 3 hours. The basic picnics are 4.5 hours to allow extra time for you to set up and take down. If you would like extra time, you may do so for an additional $50/hour.

 

If you would like to leave earlier than expected, please contact us 30 minutes prior to your departure via text or phone call.

 

Until we arrive, you are responsible for all event décor.

 

When do we pay for the picnic?

A non-refundable deposit of 50% of your total invoice is required to secure your booking. Until a deposit is received, no booking will be confirmed or held.

 

The remainder of the balance is due 24 hours before your scheduled picnic. If it is not received, we will consider your picnic cancelled unless we are notified otherwise. All prices are subject to tax. 

 

Is food & beverage included and can we bring our own ?

Picnique does NOT offer food and beverage service as part of our packages. We do however work with local partners to provide charcuterie and chocolate covered strawberries for an additional cost as an optional add-on. You are welcome to bring your own food and beverage, but we will not be able to provide additional serving dishes for the food you bring. All garbage and food scraps are your responsibility to dispose of.

 

If you have a custom request in mind, let us know!

Is alcohol permitted?

Picnique does not provide any alcohol. Please note that alcohol is not permitted in public spaces. If you would like to enjoy alcohol during your picnic, we suggest you host your event in a private yard.
