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. 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.

2020 was an odd year to start a business and like many other businesses, Pretty as a picnic had to adapt during the global pandemic. We now offer picnic hampers delivered to your door in Saint Austell, Cornwall.

Coming out of lockdown, pop-up picnics have become the latest trend across Sydney and Pretty as a picnic are now also available to make your picnic dreams come true in Cornwall from 2021.
