It all started with 2 lawn tickets to a concert...
By Katie Schur, Founder and Picnic Stylist at PicnicPerfect.co
My passion for picnicking began when I went to my first summer concert at Tanglewood Music Center in Lenox, MA. At the time, my idea of a picnic was an array of sandwiches and salads on a gingham tablecloth. What I discovered reset my expectations: beautiful spreads of charcuterie and cheese, picnickers in portable hammocks sipping on sangrias, and a candelabra that glowed into the night. Breathtaking!
The creative wheels started turning and I started to dabble into the art of picnicking. When we became homeowners, I loved having a backyard and viewed the grass underneath our little apple tree as my patio for hosting friends and family. My husband Jake loves to fish and one summer my picnicking obsession got so severe that I think we had dinner out on the reservoir almost every night.
I believe that a picnic can be as luxurious as that first night in Tanglewood or as simple as toasting marshmallows over a bonfire with friends. The important thing is that we're getting out to explore the world around us and doing so with a fist full of food in our hand.
When I created Picnic Perfect, I wanted to share this passion with others, but also because I couldn't find what I envisioned as the perfect all-inclusive DIY picnic kit. I love locally-sourced supplies, high quality utensils and something that has some style! I thought others might feel the same way.
Don't get me wrong... I love me some gingham, but not every picnic has to have that retro vibe. Picnic Perfect is here to help you try something new and create memories with people you love. I hope along the way we can inspire you to create your own picnicking story.
Cheers and Happy picnicking!
