In the cooler winter and spring months, it doesn’t get much more romantic than an upscale picnic in the park. Cheese and charcuterie, a cozy blanket, and a beautiful setting make for a memorable date night. Which is why we’re totally in love with Our Dream Date, a new gourmet picnic company in Orlando offering multiple picnic packages specially designed for lovebirds.
Pick from dreamy locations throughout Central Florida and a variety of stylish setups. Embark on a private trail ride at Hidden Palms Ranch and return for a picnic on the grounds, or savor a classic picnic in the park at Mead Gardens.
A variety of picnic themes are offered including the outdoorsy Bohemian Rhapsody, the man-approved Swank and Swagger, and the casual Whiskey and Flannel.
All the logistics of picnic planning will be handled for you: the perfect location, a romantic setup, supplies, food and even entertainment. All you have to do is pick your theme and location and show up to enjoy your date. We’re thinking this is the perfect way to celebrate an anniversary, proposal, or treat your significant other to an over the top date.
All picnic setups include a charcuterie board and beverages, a picnic blanket, pillows, a few props, plates, napkins, utensils and your choice of a game to play together.
