Why Luxury Picnics are Worth the Hype

October 8, 2021

Guys, today I want to talk about luxury picnics. Heard of them?

Seen one while you were out and about in Portland this summer? If not, it’s time to talk about them.

Whether you’re looking for something to do with your girls, or you want to do something special for the one you love, a luxury picnic can fit the bill. Keep reading to learn all about them and which one in Maine I love and got to try for myself!

What on EARTH is a luxury picnic?

If you’re not familiar with luxury picnics, they are exactly what they sound like. Imagine a picnic, but instead of having your standard picnic basket and a blanket, it’s at the next level.

You’ve got a table, maybe a charcuterie spread, a beautiful backdrop like the Eastern Promenade, blankets, and a theme of some sort. If you’re looking for Instagrammable, look no further.

Towards the end of the summer, I had the privilege to collaborate with a luxury picnic company here in Maine called Pyrus Picnics. First of all, the owner of Pyrus Picnics, Victoria, is the nicest and she created a truly beautiful picnic for us.

Second of all, our picnic also included a stunning charcuterie board courtesy of the amazing Charcutemarie. The combination of both of these while having our luxury picnic on the Eastern Prom, complete with waterfront views all around, was downright magical. Because you simply can’t have a picnic worth talking about without a charcuterie board of some kind, and we were not disappointed in the slightest.

Sometimes, the only reason to have a luxury picnic is to get together with friends

Don’t get me wrong, you could certainly choose a luxury picnic with Pyrus Picnics if you needed to go that extra mile for something like a proposal, a baby shower, or your anniversary. But you can also book one simply for fun!

Sometimes, there’s nothing better than getting together with your friends for some bubbly, good company, and cheese! Considering the last year and a half has been a nonstop pandemic, can you really say no to an occasion to enjoy good friends’ company?

I certainly can’t. You’d be hard-pressed to even mention a charcuterie board to me that I don’t want to eat. I’d also immediately be on board for it.

What’s not to love about spending time with great friends, enjoying delicious cheeses, meats, and other delectable goodies while you’re sitting on the Eastern Prom? Trust me when I say that this crisp fall weather that we’re currently enjoying is beyond perfect for a luxury picnic with Pyrus Picnics!

And with the new collaboration that features Charcutemarie, you really can’t go wrong. Special thanks have to go out to my friends that agreed to be my models for this post and to Frannie of Frannie Eats Maine for joining (she’ll have a post out about this as well soon!)

Luxury picnics with Pyrus Picnics are worth it

In my opinion, if you’re going to showcase luxury picnics and delicious food, you need to show people enjoying them! I’m lucky to have such gorgeous friends that were willing to savor and appreciate the stunning charcuterie board that we devoured.

Not only was it pretty, but it was also incredibly tasty!

If you’ve been thinking about booking a luxury picnic, I’m here to tell you it’s worth it. You’ll have an incredible experience with Pyrus Picnics. Be sure to let me know in the comments or on social media if you’ve had the opportunity to try a luxury picnic and what your thoughts were! If you need me, I’m probably eating brie somewhere.
