Paris gourmet Picnic FAQ
Welcome to our Paris gourmet Picnic FAQ page. You will find answers to some of the more frequent questions you may ask.
We created a winter style gourmet picnic this year. Our different picnics can be enjoyed at the Trocadero gardens, the champ de mars overlooking the Eiffel tower. We do propose picnics at the gardens of Versailles as well. Our winter picnic includes cashmere plaids and woolen blankets to keep you warm. Our deco picnic is set up with our traditional wicker picnic baskets, candles, lights, cushions, umbrellas, and large size heart balloons.
The picnic is served with tea or coffee. We will be on call during the picnic and present to clear your picnic set up once you are finished. You can simply carry on with a photo session with our photographer or your visit in Paris after your lunch. It is a chic and unusual way to enjoy a romantic moment with your partner in Paris. You will find a fun visual story with Shawn and Whitney’s january Paris gourmet picnic. Reach out to us directly via email for a quotation.
WHAT IS INSIDE THE PICNIC BASKET?
With our fine & traditional French style wicker 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!
For our Edit Piaf gourmet picnic, a decor set up is also included. With pillows, candles, a parasol to shield yourself from the glorious Parisian sunshine as well as a few little extras, it’s the perfect unique, romantic setting ideal for a proposal or an engagement in Paris. With all this taken care of, there’s just one thing you need to remember to bring-yourselves!

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 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 and a half 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.
Please note that we are quite flexible with time. Should you have any specific requirements, email us with your details, we will get back to you promptly. We would be glad to fine tune the time of the day or your picnic menu if needed.

HOW TO COMBINE A PICNIC & A LOVER’S PHOTO SESSION?
Why not add a photo shoot to your Picnic, so that you can take home the memories of your day and keep them forever? Add a half-hour shoot with Photographer Olivier from WeddingLight on to your Picnic for just €280, which not only includes a private, personalized shoot with Olivier himself, but also a selection of high resolution retouched photos to take away with you. Our Leon, Amélie Poulain, Edith Piaf or Jeanne Picnics can be coupled with a +1 hour photo shoot as well. This would usually happen after your picnic time. Options to extend the shoot are also available, with Olivier offering different couple & family photography packages from 1 to 3 hours.
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.
*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 and will propose to reschedule to a later date.
