an outdoor soirée you’ll never forget

We are the picnic people.

What we do 


Welcome! Here at The Picnic Collective, we specialize in styled, customized picnics- a luxury outdoor social experience. We love to design and cater boutique picnics custom to you and your occasion. We believe the best parts of life happen when you gather around a picnic table with friends and family. We are lucky to have beautiful Orange County, CA as the backdrop to all of our picnics. We take care of the set-up and pack down, so all you have to do is arrive with your guests for a care-free, memorable experience. From beginning to end, our abundant picnic menus showcase only the finest local ingredients, put together with a personal touch to captivate. Each of our picnics tells a story. A story of people, places and exquisite food. The Picnic Collective rekindles the magical tradition of beautiful handmade picnics that turn any day into a special occasion. Authentic and personal, they help time disappear around you as you savor the ceremony of delicious food from a traditional wicker basket, shared in great company in California’s beautiful natural settings. From a romantic dinner for two and group gatherings to bespoke themes
or unusual locations, our fine picnic dining experiences use locally-sourced seasonal ingredients that reconnect you to the pure joy of food.

Welcome, picnickers!


We want this corner of the web to feel like your favorite stretch of sand on your favorite beach. Somewhere you can come hang out, gain some inspiration, and maybe even daydream a little bit!

That’s what we were doing when we dreamt up the concept behind The Picnic Collective. It was born out of our pure love for event styling, gourmet cuisine, the beautiful backdrop of the Pacific Ocean, and the feeling we get when all of our loved ones are gathered around the same picnic table.

I used The Picnic Collective to propose to my girlfriend. All of the details were set up for us on the beach. She thought I had planned an elaborate date night, but I ended up popping the question when the sun was setting. My fiancé loved the romantic picnic. I also did the photographer add on, so we have photos and amazing memories from that night. Thank you for making our engagement a day that we will never forget… everything was amazing.
