What is a Bohemian "Boho" Picnic?
A Bohemian themed picnic is a relaxed style with an earthy look and feel. It's eclectic and pulls together the elegance of nature's patterns, colors, and accessories. In picnic form, Boho style tables are low lying close to the ground and surrounded by plush and cozy throw pillows, floor cushions, blankets and throws. Everything is at your reach so you don't have to get up much. You can just chill and soak up what the sun and surroundings have to offer. That being said, Keep in mind that your guests should be comfortable with sitting on a cushion placed on the ground.
How far in advance should I request to book my picnic?
We highly recommend you submit your booking request as soon as you as possible. This way you will have a better chance of locking in your desired date and time. We suggest booking at least 3-8 weeks in advance.
How do I book a picnic?
NOTE: The person booking the picnic must be 21+ as they must sign a Party Rental Agreement and Liability Waiver.
Once you have decided on a picnic, simply fill out our BOOKING REQ. form and we will let you know whether we have availability for the requested time. If we do, we will send you our invoice. Simply pay the 50% deposit and your event is secured. Bookings are not confirmed until date/time/location have been approved and 50% deposit has be paid. Remaining balance will be due 5 days before the picnic date.
What if weather is bad?
Unfortunately the weather is out of our control. We ask all our guests to please try to have a plan B in place (infdoor location) during the summer/spring rainy season. We are also very hesitate to set-up at beach locations or any utdoor location that is not covered if there is more than a 30% chance of rain.
For Florida locals:
We don't offer any refunds ,but we can reschedule your reservation date (subject to availability) without penalty up to 72 hours before your picnic event. Within 72 hours, there is a rescheduling fee of $20 per person.
Once the picnic is physically set up, we cannot reschedule.
Generally, Our preference is to move the event inside your home. Our styled picnics will still look beautiful indoors.
We will always try to accommodate last-minute location changes.
Out of State Visitors: We monitor the weather and offer indoor set-up when available. You are also able to reschedule (24-48 hours) prior to the picnic date. However, if you choose to wait it out and decide to cancel or postpone less than 48 hours before the Picnic Date, you are subject to pay the full price of the Food and Beverages. We are happy to deliver your Grazing Boxes/platters and beverages to you so you can at least enjoy part of the Luxe Picnic experience regardless of the weather outdoors.
How do the picnics work?
Our job is to make sure everything is set up and ready for your arrival at your chosen time and location. We'll be there waiting with your picnic until you arrive to make sure everything stays safe and pristine for your arrival. When you arrive, we leave and let you get your picnic on. We return once your picnic is over at the agreed upon time to clean and pack up for you! All you have to do is walk away – hopefully feeling relaxed and with a smile on your face - and enjoy the rest of your day. It’s that simple! Oh, and yes! You are welcome to add whatever food/*beverages you'd like to bring to your picnic.
*(alcoholic beverages are not permitted in State/Public Parks & beaches. Luxe Picnics by Les will not be held responsible if any laws are broken by the client).
Do you offer Picnic Packages for kids and teens?
We sure do! We do require that picnics be booked by an adult 21+ as they must sign a Rental Agreement and Liability Waiver.
Our debut in the event/party business began in 2005 and it was for children and teens. We can create and accommodate age appropriate Boho picnic themes and grazing boxes to make our younger picnic guests very happy. we have partnered up with some wonderful small business that offer Card Yard signs, personalized mementos, and amazing balloon designs that can add whimsy and fun to any child/teens picnic.
What if something breaks or there’s a spill?
We do require a $100 refundable damage fee and a signed Rental Agreement and Liability Waiver at the time you pay for your booking balance.
We kindly request that shoes be removed when on the blankets. It's not just to keep them free of stains, it's also because we want you to relax and lay on a nice clean blanket.
If there's a spill don’t fret. Simple liquid spills, like water or light colored lemonades, may not incur a fee. We do our best to remove stains in-house. However, you may be billed for dry cleaning costs if required. Please inform your host at the end of your picnic if there are any major spills or accidents so they can try to fix it and avoid the dry cleaners or, if needed, replacing the item! All breakages must be paid for at items retail cost.
Is smoking allowed near the picnic set-up?
In both our indoor and outdoor picnics, we kindly request that you do not smoke in/near/ or around the picnic setup.
In addition, in order to keep our picnic equipment/decor clean and safe, we will not set up in venues/homes where there is smoking.
If any of our picnic equipment/decor smells of smoke, your Damage Fee will NOT be refunded.
Is the picnic decor disinfected between gatherings?
Absolutely! In addition to ensuring you have a wonderful picnic, the safety and health of you and your guests is a priority. We make sure to properly wash and disinfect all pillow cases/ inserts, blankets and throws. We also wipe down all hard surfaces.
