WHAT IS INSIDE THE PICNIC BASKET?

With our fine & traditional wicker French picnic baskets, everything you need to make your picnic one to remember will be waiting inside your basket when delivered on location.  And when we say everything, we mean everything, as we not only provide you with a superb selection of Market-fresh foods, specialized artisan items and homemade dishes, but we’ve got all the easily-forgettable stuff covered too, including cutlery, plates, serviettes, glasses and of course a plush blanket to keep your outfits picture perfect!

PARIS WEATHER AND CHANGE OF PLANS?

While we do everything we can to make your Picnic as perfect as possible, the weather is regrettably something we cannot control.  If Paris choses the day of your Picnic to open up it’s heavens, we’ll be with you every step of the way to find a solution, whether that be a rescheduled date, a full refund, or-if you’re feeling brave and want to embrace Paris in the rain-a covered location.

ADAPTING TO ALLERGIES OR DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?

As all of our Picnics are made fresh to order, dietary restrictions and allergies aren’t a problem at all.  Just make sure to leave us a comment on the order page so we know before hand, and we’ll do our upmost to make sure you don’t miss out.  On the unlikely occasion that we can’t accommodate your request, we’ll get in touch in advance and offer a refund or propose a different, more suitable basket.
