We like to think of our bookings and reservations like a popular restaurant.  Weekends can be booked up months in advance and we offer a boutique service and there is limited spots available. 

We offer our services on a first come first serve basis and with our services being some of the most trendy events right now, they book up very fast. 

We recommend booking Friday and weekends events 4-6 weeks in advance.  For  weekdays we recommend 3-4 weeks in advance. 

Minimum 3 days notice for all event bookings if there is availability in order for us to properly prepare for your event.

 Unfortunately we cannot control the weather.  We recommend having a backup indoor spot in mind or we will work with you to change your event date to an available spot in our calendar.  Please note the decision to cancel the event due to possible rain is required to be made 48 hours in advance.  

The $150.00 deposit is non refundable as we secured your event spot and withheld that spot to other clients wishing to inquire.  We do not penalize for covid related cancellations. 
Full information will be provided to you in our contract when you receive our initial quotation/ estimate.

We generally service intimate event meaning on average 50 guests.  This changes and depends on your service type and totals are included in each package on our site.  If you have a larger group than indicated in our package.  Contact us as we may be able to accommodate your request.  

DIY Kits are only available November – April

We ask that you make us aware of any food allergies and intolerances you may have prior to booking.

You do not require a permit in public parks for guests totalling 15 and under.  If you wish to consume alcohol you technically do require a permit to do so in public parks.  For larger groups we recommend booking a spot to ensure you have space for your entire guest count.  We recommend doing this as soon as possible inorder to guarantee availability.

Drinking alcohol in city parks is prohibited without a permit.  We do not sell any alcohol.  If you wish to consume alcohol it is at your own risk. 

For larger groups we always recommend making a reservation for a park with a permit to avoid the early cancellation of your event by authorities.

This depends on the service style and package you request.  For the majority of our regular group picnics we do not remain on site.  It will be stated in your package if there are staff that remain on site for picnic events.

If you wish to leave earlier than your specified time we require a 45 minute in advance notice.  Our items are very costly and we would not want them to get stolen or damaged.  We ask that you wait for our stylist to return before leaving.

We service preferred parks in different areas of the GTA and have preferred locations within the parks.

We will always try to find a space with shade if available and away from rowdy guests in the park to give the best picnic experience.

Think of it like this…if they require a full seat we recommend adding them.  If you feel they will be running around or you don’t mind being a little squishy with them, then no worries. We recommend children 6 and above to have their own seat.

Yes we will set up there both indoors/ outdoors please ensure that it is ok for you to have guests over.  If for any reason your booking gets cancelled and we are unable to get our equipment you will require any and all cost for getting our items returned.

When booking we ask that you book with your minimum guest count estimate as after the contract that becomes your required guest count.  We cannot lower it after that as we reserve items for your event and did not rent them to other clients wishing to book.  You can add guests up to 1 week prior to your event. However we recommend to do so quickly to guarantee availability. If you wish to add guests after that we will try our best to accommodate your request.

We understand that things happen.  We allow a 10-minute grace period on both ends of your picnic for late arrivals and to give a no stress pack up period when you are preparing to leave. 

Please understand that if you arrive later than 25 minutes we will be required to pack up and leave the picnic and your total will not be refunded.  We service multiple picnics every day in different parts of the city and we cannot allow tardiness to affect our other events and we cannot leave our rental items unattended waiting for you to arrive. 

If we are able to stay and wait for you, your picnic will require to be completed at the original time.  If you wish to add a same day extension it will be an additional $60.00 per hour.
