Q: How does this picnic thing work?

A: We set up your picnic of choice and have it ready upon arrival. We’ll be at the site to greet you and make sure no body else (or birds) decides to have your picnic! Once you arrive, we leave you to enjoy your experience for the reserved time. We return to pack and clean everything up for you, and you are free to leave and enjoy the rest of your day or evening.

Q: What is included in a pop-up picnic?

A: We currently offer packages suitable for 2-40 people.

  • Food: Optional grazing board (vegetarian, vegan, or charcuterie)
  • Beverages: Sparkling Mineral Water 
  • Styling: 
    • Each setup has a bohemian twist and designs vary on location and picnic size. Take a look through our gallery to get an idea of what our set ups look like. Let us know if you have a style preference and/or color scheme so we can tailor a picnic to fit your special occasion.
Q: Can you set up anywhere?

A: We are happy to set up just about anywhere you can lay a picnic rug. We require a location to be within 50 yds of vehicle access. There may be additional costs if there isn’t close vehicle access or if it’s out of Santa Barbara/Montecito/Goleta. Please see our favorite picnic locations here.

Q: What if it rains?

A: Luckily, we don’t have to worry about unfortunate weather too often in Santa Barbara. However, if it looks like the weather may affect your reservation, we will contact you in advance of your picnic to discuss your options. There will be no extra charges for rescheduling your picnic due to rain or unfavorable weather.

Q: How do I secure my booking?

A: A 50% retainer is required to secure your booking. This booking fee is non-refundable. The remaining balance is due 72 hours before your booking.

Q: Can we leave whenever we want?

A: If you would like to leave earlier than the arranged time, please provide us a 30 min notice via phone call or text. You are responsible for the picnic items until we are able to return and pack up.

Q: What’s your cancellation policy?

A: We don’t offer refunds but we can change your reservation time without penalty up to 72 hours before your picnic. 

From mountaintops to waterfronts, gardens to sandy beaches, let picnicking show you the beauty of Santa Barbara.
