Giverny Luxury Gourmet Picnic

Embrace Giverny and the impressionists with a Picnic.

We simply love heading to Giverny from time to time. Giverny represented a haven for the Impressionist movement, particularly through Claude Monet’s iconic gardens. It served as a source of inspiration where artists could capture the interplay of light and color in nature, which was central to the Impressionist aesthetic. Visit Claude Monet’s foundation in the morning & enjoy a gourmet picnic on the seine with “Love Picnic Paris”. We will set up our deco picnic with vintages table cloths, designer cushions, retro style umbrellas, our French style wicker baskets & a picnic style lunch!

Traditions of a French picnic.

Picture this: a lazy afternoon in the French countryside during the impressionist period. The sun is dappling through the leaves, casting a soft, ethereal glow over the landscape. As the gentle breeze rustles the foliage, comes the time to gather for a leisurely picnic.

The spread is laid out on a checkered blanket, adorned with crusty baguettes, a selection of cheeses, and bottles of wine… Laughter and conversation will float through the air, mingling with the scent of freshly cut grass and wildflowers.

In the distance, the Seine river meanders lazily, its tranquil waters reflecting the pastel hues of the surrounding scenery.

This quintessential French tradition of picnicking embodies the spirit of the impressionist period – a celebration of nature, camaraderie, and the simple pleasures of life.

Romantic picnic

“Le déjeuner sur l’herbe” Edouard Manet.

Le déjeuner sur l’herbe is probably one of the most famous painting from Edouard Manet.

Manet completed the painting in 1863. It caused a huge scandal at the time because it shocked the establishment. It depicts a romantic picnic scene in the French countryside. Today, it is considered one of the masterpieces of modern art.

You will be able to enjoy Manet’s painting at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. Well worth a visit on your return from your countryside picnic in Giverny.
