WHERE / WHAT TIME DO WE DELIVER?

We’re open 7 days a week and offer both Lunch and Dinner delivery times for our surprise set up.  All of our picnics now include our surprise set up with balloons. The delivery service & surprise set up is included in the price of the Picnic and gives you around an hour to enjoy your picnic. We will dismantle the picnic ourselves so that you do not have to worry about a thing and can carry on with your daily visits. We usually set up our picnics at the Trocadero area with the view of the eiffel tower. We could also set up one of our picnic at the Luxembourg gardens as well as the Louvre gardens. 

Here one example of a secret proposal / engagement photo session at the Trocadero gardens, overlooking the Eiffel tower. We would tend to recommend the Louvre gardens for a secret proposal in Paris. The area is somehow more private and makes it quite ideal for such a special moment.

REFUND, 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.  It the weather chooses to open its heaven, we’ll be with you every step of the way to find a solution. We would be communicating with you via phone & decide in the morning of the picnic where to do the set up if the weather is not cooperating. 

*In case of light rain, we may decide to set up the picnic on the Champ de Mars, a few steps away from the Eiffel tower. There is a lovely and utterly romantic shelter area with a couple of benches, steps away from the tower.  We may decide to set up your picnic there if we feel it might rain when we do arrive on site. It is important that we have the possibility to reach out via text message or whatsApp in the morning.

*You would get a full refund up to 30 days prior to your picnic date if you decide to cancel your order. If the weather is not cooperating on the day; heavy rain or heavy wind and it makes it unpleasant to have a picnic outside, we would refund 50 % off the total amount.

*We only cater for one picnic at a time. Once you have booked your date, we do not take any other bookings. We do not refund a picnic past 30 days, unless the weather is just not cooperating as mentioned above. 

For larger groups, we would refund 50% of the total amount in case of poor weather.

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.
