About Us

Making your event Pretty as a Picnic.

Founded in January 2020, Pretty as a picnic quickly became the most 'instagrammable' way to celebrate in Sydney and from December 2020 we started offering our services in Cornwall, UK!

Starting with picnic hampers delivered to your door and then our favourite pop-up picnic set ups, post lockdown.

In July 2022 we gained a new franchise in Scotland.

Our passion is to make your day truly special and hassle free. We offer the full package of beautiful picnic set ups with quality catering in gorgeous locations across Cornwall and South West Scotland.
