Share your inspiration and passion with us? What’s your why?
Bourgeois Baskets were born out of divine necessity. After surviving COVID-19, I became extremely cautious of my surroundings for fear of contracting the virus once more. While trying to find safe social-distancing activities, I expressed my desire to attend a luxury picnic, where all we had to do was show up, enjoy ourselves, and leave. Thus our bespoke service was born to provide a completely enjoyable experience while staying safe.
I’ve always had a love of event coordination & design. My friends and family know me for my over-the-top “productions” and close attention to detail. For extra convenience, we also launched our Bourgeois Boards Delivery Service, providing our signature hand-crafted charcuterie, crudités, and dessert boards straight to your door for all occasions.
What are the starting price points for your services?
Our Petit Plat starts at $15 with a minimum purchase of 3
Describe with future clients the process for placing an order from start to end
Everything starts with our booking process via an order form or email. Picnics are officially booked after consultation and payment is processed. Our team will curate your entire experience, set up your picnic, and provide you with a brief tour upon arrival. We leave you for a minimum of 2 hours where you can enjoy games, music and fellowship. Our team returns for farewell and cleanup. To order a board, an order form or inquiry is filled out and our team responds with an attached invoice for payment upon receipt. Once confirmed, we takeover and craft the board of your choice delivered for the date and time of your choosing.
Name your best location yet for a picnic under the sun? Why?
It’s a toss-up between Prospect Park and Brooklyn Bridge Park. Brooklyn Bridge Park has amazing views and as beautiful as the sunsets. Prospect Park, however, has gorgeous rolling hills, more space, and large trees for shade.
What COVID-19 precautions do you have in place to ensure safety?
All staff get tested regularly to ensure we are healthy and safe during production & delivery. Materials and all additional supplies are cleaned and sanitized multiple times; picnic items are thoroughly cleaned after each picnic and again before use. Masks are worn at all times.
