A Picnic in Paris
Paris is a beautiful city that is rich in culture and food. One of the most iconic sights in Paris is the Eiffel tower, as you know. While in Paris, especially on a beautiful sunny day, there is nothing better than sitting on a blanket in the park, enjoying a glass of wine, and snacking on the wonderful array of food found from within the city. This is the experience you get through Paris Picnic.
The company contacted us by phone a few hours before we were scheduled for our picnic. They texted us directions on where to meet, across from the tower itself, and they were right on-time carrying a bag full of goodies. It had all the essentials needed to make our picnic in Paris perfect. They even suggested a place for us to set up, in front of the Eiffel tower, and offered to open our bottle of wine for us.
We immediately noticed a nice blanket was also in the bag, so we asked how we would get that back to them. We were informed that everything in the bag was ours to keep! It was extremely convenient to have every detail handled. Immediately, we set off to set up in front of the tower, and unpack all our goodies.
The bag contained a loaf of bread, multiple types of cheeses, foie gras, a bottle of wine, a fruit salad, a regular salad with dressing, dessert, utensils, plates, and cups, various types of meats such as chorizo and salami, fresh fruit, and basically everything needed for the perfect picnic in Paris. To be honest, the amount of food provided was more than I had expected, and we appreciated that every little detail was thought out.
Conclusion: When in Paris, this is a must do! It takes out all the stress of making sure you have everything needed to create that perfect day for you and your loved ones. This experience was definitely a highlight of our stay in Paris.
Paris Picnic started as an idea between friends who enjoy picnicking in the world’s most beautiful city. Whether picnicking along the Canal St-Martin or under the Eiffel Tower, up in hilly Buttes Chaumont or in one of the countless parks that span Paris from the Bois de Boulogne to the Bois de Vincennes, it’s easy to feel that Paris was made for le pique-nique.
By partnering with artisanal food and wine producers around France and offering free delivery to select locations across the city, they simplify the process of planning and arranging a picnic. Just select your picnic, delivery location, and allow Paris Picnic to provide you with a delicious, unique and convenient experience.
