A pop up picnic company is finally in St. Petersburg. This festive fun, and sometimes romantic idea was grown out of a love for hosting and throwing parties for friends. These chic, and stunning picnic arrangements come with treats shopped from Mazzaros and Brooklyn South Deli.

St Pete Picnic Co was founded in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic by Rachel Fry. The Founder saw the opportunity to offer Tampa Bay area residents a socially distanced alternative for get togethers, dates, and events.

This is the kind of ingenuity and creativity that makes the ‘Burg shine. If you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate a day with close friends or your family, this artfully arranged picnic is probably the way to go.

Picnics start at $165 and can be customized and built on from there.

“It’s the perfect social distancing activity. So over the last few months I’ve been collecting inventory- plush pillows, rugs, candles, tables built from pallets, etc. You can check out my website and see the form to create the style of picnic you want.”

Available themes include Romantic, Coastal, and Boho.

“It’s also the perfect social distancing activity,” said Fry in a message to I Love the ‘Burg. “So over the last few months I’ve been collecting inventory- plush pillows, rugs, candles, tables built from pallets, etc.”

This is a resplendent way to celebrate St. Petersburg, while also supporting burgeoning and creative small business.
