Are you looking for a pretty and original Christmas gift idea? I might have found a very pretty one!
Last summer, I invited some of my girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. However, I didn’t want the hassle of organising the whole party: food, drink, decor, etc. Plus, I wanted something pretty and unique. That’s when I found out about “Happy Picnic”.
What is “Happy Picnic”? The basic idea of the concept: bring stylish and elegant picnics to Switzerland. You know, like in the UK where white napkins and fancy glassware picnics are an institution.
Jessica and David, who created “Happy Picnic”, offer a turnkey concept. They create the entire decor according to your taste, buy and bring food and beverages and clean up after the party. You only have to pick the date and the location.
Plus, there is that little extra making the experience even more special: all the products and fresh flowers are provided by local producers and none of the tableware is made out of plastic!
What about the winter you might ask?! A couple of weeks ago, Jessica and David launched a winter version of Happy Picnic. I haven’t tested it but it sounds quite nice as well.
Instead of taking place in a park, it will take place at yours. But, they will also provide the entire decor, transforming your living room into a gold/white and blush winter wonderland!
MY PERSONAL OPINION
It was such a unique experience, like straight out of a fairy-tale. I loved the personalisation of the experience. In fact, prior to my big day, “Happy Picnic” checked my Instagram account to get a feel of what I like: colours, places, ambiances, etc. Therefore, when I arrived on location it felt so “me”. I loved it! Plus, we also had a couple of phone calls ahead of the event, enabling Jessica and David to also personalise food & beverages according to my tastes.
Re the winter version, what I like is the fact you can enjoy the experience throughout the entire night. All the decor, food and beverages are left on location until the next morning. The only flaw of this winter concept is the food. They’ll only serve sweet options, which, if you lean more towards salty food like me, might be restraining.
All in all, the only main downside of this experience is the price: it starts at 450 CHF for two persons, which not everyone can afford.

Hi Heidi, I absolutely loveee this picnic idea! I’m from Bermuda and we just have a small business that does something similar just open this year and it has been a hugely popular trend for small get togethers. Her company is named Eettafel. I just love the uniqueness and intimacy of these set ups, and they are always great instagrammable moments!
