Remember when the world seemed a crazy place and we had to stay home. We had the best summer of sunshine I can ever remember and the Stay Home Picnic was born.

I haven’t blogged in a while, I have a few scurried away mostly about this crazy period in the world of small business, that I will get uploaded over the next few weeks. But this one I just had to get out first, and its all about a brand new service, perfect for this mad time!

I don’t know about you but I am tired of these 4 walls, week days, weekends all become the same. Last weekend we fancied a change, we fancied a little escapism but within our home bubble. With a Glam Garage full of an unused hire collection hubby and I had an idea. We created our own low level chill out, we bought yummy picnic food and I styled it all together for our own boho picnic area. And do you know what it was amazing! We laughed, we relaxed, we pretended we were anywhere apart from our own garden. I shared a little snippet on Insta and the amount of love was overwhelming. So I wanted to make this little bit of escapism available to others.

I am no good with food, the thought of having to go through hygiene tests and all the council paper work is a little beyond me, so time to call in the professionals. I was recommended The Bountiful Table by a friend and I instantly fell in love with their style. Their food is right up my street, it looks yum, is beautifully presented and is the perfect grazing opportunity. Boxes include 3 cheese varieties, 1 pot of humorous, a selection of crackers, olives and stuffed peppers, vegetables and fresh fruit & nuts! Dietary requirements can be met so get in touch for more info.

Nikkita of Nikkita Palmer Designs and I have previously created the perfect boho chill out area, so we have slimmed it down and created a smaller version. Perfect for back gardens and living rooms the package contains a Persian Rug, Low Level Table, Macrame Runner, a food serving board and a selection of scatter cushions, a couple of vessels for flowers and some freshly picked blooms. Need a little help for how to put it all together we will provide a helpful guide.

Everything will be delivered to your door on a Saturday morning and collected on a late Sunday afternoon. All contact less and fuss free. Over the hire period it is yours to use inside or outside, all we ask is you keep it dry and abide by the Government Social Distancing Rules.

Now it is hard to put a price on creating memories, on escapism and on breaking up the monotony of lockdown but this is business so we have to, so all of the above can be hired and eaten for £100, based on 2-4 people. £190 for 6-8 people. Plus for a limited time we will be offering free delivery. bookings need to be made by Thursday morning, dietary requirements can be catered for and if you want to over size your boho styling then we can add in lanterns, extra rugs, small furniture and extra flowers.
