A Picnic in the Park

The other weekend my girlfriends and I had the pleasure of enjoying a sunny Sunday afternoon in Charleston with a scenic picnic in the park. The best part of this picnic was the fact that we did not have to lift a finger! All we did was show up and enjoy the day. I recently connected with Jenna, the talented woman behind Picnics x Penrose and was thrilled to partner with her on planning a little Sunday brunch with friends.

On the day of our picnic, we arrived at a local park and were welcomed with a charming setup on the grassy lawn with amazing views of the Charleston Harbor. There is just something about al fresco dining and a beautiful tablescape that makes my heart happy.

From the fresh florals and table setting, to the refreshing individual desserts and comfy pillow seating, Jenna’s attention to detail created a perfectly polished set up. It was a warm and sunny afternoon in Charleston, and the bamboo raffia fans really came in handy. The girls and I sat down and enjoyed chilled rosé and nibbled on delightful charcuterie board, complete with homemade breadsticks made by Chef Lauri Erickson
The process of booking my picnic was so simple and I couldn't have been more pleased with the planning and setup. Jenna and I connected beforehand to chat about where I envisioned having my picnic and we also discussed several other details like color scheme, time of day, food, etc. Picnics x Penrose provides everything from the plates, cups, and silverware, to the pillows to sit on and bottled water. (Alcohol is BYOB). 
How gorgeous are these arrangements from Marigold Flowers? I’m also obsessed with this India Amory tablecloth and Amanda Lindroth glassware.

Picnics x Penrose also provides several other types of picnic themed services including setups for proposals, date night, bachelorette parties, birthdays or simply just to socialize like we did. This is a no brainer for husbands/boyfriends/fiancés out there looking for a way to surprise their significant other without the hassle of planning. I also think something like this would be so much fun to book for a bridal shower or even Mother's Day. Jenna's contact information for booking can be found here

There's nothing better than an outdoor, leisurely lunch with good friends, especially when there's no setup or cleanup involved. Here are some highlights from the day. I'm looking forward to finding an excuse to book another one soon!
