Frequently Asked Questions
What is Picturesque Luxury Picnics and what other services do you offer?
Picturesque Luxury Picnics, LLC is the premier mobile luxury picnic and event styling experience serving the greater Poconos, Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas in Pennsylvania; creating a 360 degree experience while you're as hands-on or hands-off as you'd like! We curate an elevated indoor or outdoor picnic setting with low-rise tables, pillow arrangements, matching décor, full place settings, fun additions like a music speaker and table games, paired with strategic planning, incredible enhancement options and exclusive location partners. Our experience is perfect for all celebrations including bachelorette parties, birthdays of all ages, proposals, anniversaries, holidays, and everything in between. We are the unique and modern alternative to traditional event planning. In addition to picnics, we also do custom quotes for intimate event styling services! All you need to get started is to submit a booking request here!
Do you provide food & beverages?
We provide a water dispenser for hydration and convenience. For an additional charge, you can choose to add a charcuterie board to your event, which is one of our most popular enhancements and is the most recommended. Our charcuterie partners even offer vegetarian and vegan options!
Most of the time, you may bring your own food if you'd like! But for some locations, like select wineries, they do not allow outside food, in which food would need to be bought from the property. If this is the case, it will be discussed on your confirmation call after you submit your booking request.
All food/vendor/location coordination is handled by Picturesque! When you order food/charcuterie board, it will be set up for you at your event by the time you get there!
Do you provide alcohol?
In a nutshell, not exactly. We cannot provide alcohol with our events. BUT, if you choose to have your event at one of our winery partner locations, you can either 1. give us your wine order and we'll have it ready at your event [after ID verification] or 2. order your favorite wines during your event yourself. Outside of the wineries, you are more than welcome to BYOB - bring your own booze - as long as your location allows. It is the guest's responsibility to know the rules/regulations of alcohol use in their chosen location.
How far in advance should I book?
It is most ideal to book at least two weeks before your desired event date. This gives us enough time to process your booking request, personally consult with you, confirm enhancements, process payment and contract, etc. If you are interested in booking an event five (5) days or less away, it will be considered a short-notice booking and will incur an additional charge, if it can be accommodated. We will try our best! If able, please have an alternate date as a backup plan.
What is included?
You can see all of our packages and their inclusions HERE. We also provide enhancement options and special requests which can be added when you fill out your booking request form. Special requests are not guaranteed to be accommodated, but will be discussed on your confirmation call!
Har far do you travel?
We will travel a total of 100 miles round trip (from Stroudsburg, PA), servicing the Poconos, Lehigh Valley and beyond. This includes areas in Monroe, Pike, Carbon, Luzerne, Lackawanna, Wayne, Northampton and Lehigh counties (Pennsylvania) plus Warren and Sussex counties (New Jersey). 40 miles round trip are included in every single booking. If more than 40 miles round trip is required for your event, your invoice will reflect an additional travel fee (more details here) to cover the extra mileage and gas needed for execution. If you are outside of these boundaries and you're willing to provide additional compensation for travel, please feel free to submit your booking request anyway! We'd love to speak with you. This policy is subject to "case-by-case" approval based on the location/time of other bookings on the same day and is something that will be discussed on your confirmation call.
What is the booking process and how do I pay?
To book, please submit a booking request here. Once your booking request is submitted, you will receive an email with a link to schedule a confirmation call. This call is very important because we will review your booking details, go over any questions you have and then discuss payments and contract to get you booking secured. For payment options, you can pay via bank transfer, debit/credit card, Paypal, Venmo or Apple Pay. Although it is not required, the most recommended method of payment is by bank transfer.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes, every booking requires a $40 security deposit in order to secure your event. This deposit is refundable to your original payment method, as long as everything in the contract (terms & conditions) is followed! If there is a breach in contract (for example: damaged property, late cancelation, late start, smoking, use of glitter, etc.), the deposit will not be refunded and/or you may incur additional charges as agreed upon in the contract. You can view an example of what your contract will look like in our Terms & Conditions section here.
