Jo Rapisardi started Pretty Picnics in 2012 as an event organising company where she’d set up a four-course picnic in the park for her customers, and later return to clean up afterwards. Based in Camden, Pretty Picnics now caters for private picnics for two all the way up to wedding picnics and pop-up events for clients like Moonlight Cinema. If you’re planning a surprise picnic for a special occasion Jo can organise the works. For something simpler, opt for the hamper for two (starting from $100) including a cheese plate, noodle box or salad bowl and a tortilla wrap or baguette with your choice of fillings. Pretty Picnics can be collection from their Camden HQ or delivered within the Macarthur Region and Greater Sydney. They also do breakfast hampers for morning people – flowers, latters and daily papers all included. Order 48 hours in advance.
What could be more romantic than a picnic packed for two and sweeping harbour views? Where else could you organise a long, lazy lunch for a big group of friends? Or, an impromptu dinner date alfresco? Cancel your restaurant booking and head to one of these top places to enjoy a picnic. We’ve called ahead to find out if there’s parking, toilets and barbecues too. You can thank us later.
