Picnic Perfect + A Giveaway!

Today, I’m introducing a picnic delivery service now up and running in the New Orleans area by sharing this super fun picnic day in City Park with Haute Off the Rack on my birthday weekend! The name of the company is Merienda, and it’s the very first on-demand picnic service offering curated picnic experiences in New Orleans’ local parks and green space. Before, we told you about it, of course, we had to try it out for ourselves! 

See our full day in the park as well as get information on how to win your own picnic from Merienda in today’s full post! OH and make sure to check out our picnic video too!

Merienda in Spanish means picnic, and for owner Andrea, sticking to her Honduras heritage was important in helping her brand stand out. In conjunction with Brady’s Wine Warehouse and St. James Cheese Company, Merienda is the first of its kind to offer New Orleanians the finest in picnic experiences. Prices range from $45 for the “Classic” picnic and up! Until now, Merienda has been growing only by word of mouth with no formal advertisement, but we felt like it was worth shouting from the rooftops! To order your very own picnic, you can use the mobile-friendly website: Thank you Merienda and Andrea for hosting our day in City Park!

Interested in winning a day in the shade with delicious picnic snacks? Well you can win your very own because Haute Off the Rack and I are hosting a giveaway now on Instagram. While we were picnicking, we decided that it was such a treat to sit down and enjoy the day that we should share it by getting to know you guys. We want to have lunch date with you super soon! We are so appreciative of every single one of you, so we are going to start hosting monthly lunches to get to hang out with you guys. 🙂 🙂

We are super excited! We want to take you out to our favorite spots around town and wine and dine you. Don’t worry because the locations will change, but this first one will require the winner (and a guest) to be available in or around the New Orleans area for the picnic. Where do you want us to go next? Let us know by emailing us if you have any ideas!

Check out our Instagram accounts (@apinchoflovely & @hauteofftherack) for full entry details!
