Hi and welcome!
I'm Les and I'm so happy you are interested in what we are all about.
To start, who are those three pictured above? Well, they are my life, my family, and the reason I thrive. We moved from Miami to Fernandina Beach, FL nearly 11 years ago and have really enjoyed settling down and raising our daughter in Northeast Florida. We feel blessed to be here and that we are truly surround by some amazing counties that have beautiful locations to visit and enjoy.
LUXE PICNICS by Les was created out of my love for event planning and entertaining. Before moving from South Florida to Northeast Florida, I owned and operated an upscale children's boutique, along with my mother, that hosted themed dress-up parties for boys and girls. Together my mother and I also operated a party warehouse where we held larger scale parties and events. We really enjoyed working together to plan each beautiful party we would design and host at both locations.
I’m a creative soul and, now more than ever, I felt the need to bring back my love for entertaining. This time I decided to go with something smaller and more intimate. That being said, I pulled my mom out of retirement and created Luxe Picnics by Les.
My mission is to create magical spaces were couples, close friends, and families can gather and re-connect. A relaxed cozy environment where one-on-one quality time could be shared catching up, laughing, and indulging on cheese, charcuterie, dips, spreads, fruits and more!
These days have been challenging and chaotic, to say the least, but we must remember to continue creating special moments and memories that will be cherished for a life time. In the end, They're the only moments that will matter.
Few moments are so special that they should be recognized by special expressions. - Amit Kalantri
