Picnic in Style with The Little Gatherings
If you’re going to have a picnic, you’d better do it right! The Little Gatherings is a boutique picnic and small events styling company owned by sisters Lauren and Ashley, who both clearly have a knack for design and detail. These girls can create a unique and memorable experience in any location, whether it be on the beach, in a park, or in your own background. Their boho-chic style pop-picnics are perfect for any occasion, especially during a time when socializing and spending more time outdoors has definitely become the preferred norm.
Regardless of what you’re celebrating, The Little Gatherings can provide everything you need. I hosted a fun Galentine’s celebration with three of my besties on the beach in Downtown Delray, and we all agreed that this was one of the most fun and out-of-the-box things we’ve done in quite a while. Lauren set everything up to perfection, making sure to include Valentine’s Day themed decor wherever she could.
What’s Included in Your Picnic?
- Set-up (event rental, creative services, styling and decor) and break down
- Decor such as low-style tables, rugs/tapestries, cushion/pillow style seating, live greenery, table lighting, bistro lighting for nighttime events, candles, and dried florals
- Bluetooth speaker
- Instax camera and film
- Individual onetime use plates, cups, napkins and flatware
- Ice bucket with one bag of ice
- Choice of sparkling or flat water, tea or lemonade.
The Little Gatherings partners with other local vendors and companies to provide an array of add-on options, such as charcuterie boards, desserts, wine, photography, additional floral or balloon arrangements, and more. Of course, you can also bring along whatever you want! We noshed on fish dip and guacamole from my favorite waterfront restaurant in Delray, Deck 84 courtesy of Amber, Destiny‘s homemade Brussels sprouts salad, and Jill‘s homemade vegan spinach and artichoke dip and peanut butter hummus. We also enjoyed this gorgeous spread created by local woman-owned company, The Grazing Girls, that included an assortment of (Shaina-friendly) goat’s and sheep’s milk cheeses, charcuterie, fresh and dried fruit, jams, spiced nuts, and crackers.
The Grazing Girls creates custom grazing boxes, boards and complete table spreads for any occasion. The Grazing Girls is offering all Take A Bite Out of Boca followers $10 off Basic Box orders now through February 28, 2021. Use the code biteoutofboca when ordering! The Basic Box includes 2 gourmet cheeses and meats, fig jam, honey, assorted dried and fresh fruits, crackers, nuts and olives, and a sweet bite.
Of course, no cheese and charcuterie spread is complete without wine, am I right?! I brought my absolutely favorite low-sugar, low-sulfite, vegan, all natural Prosecco to kick off the night: SYLTBAR! And of course, as usual, I have a discount code, Shaina15, that will save you 15% on your first order from SYLTBAR!
We also sipped on my favorite rosé wine, Bodvar, and ended the night on a sweet note with a special dessert from Two Fat Cookies. Owner Zooey made the most adorable cookie pies for my girls, and for me, her addictingly delicious, gluten- and dairy-free walnut chewy cookies that have the most perfect fudgy, brownie-like texture.
As if the night wasn’t perfect enough, we even had our own paparazzi to capture photos! Special thanks to my good friend Emiliano Brooks, owner of local photography, print, and design compay, Studio B2.
It was truly a night to remember, and I was so happy to share it with three of my absolute best girlfriends.
