Congratulations for surviving August in New York!

It was hot and sticky for sure, but also so much fun. August may be considered the last of the summer months (though we are big fans of September picnics) – while many of you ran to the beach every weekend, we were flooded by an enormous wave of picnicking tourists and visitors.  

First and foremost: we scored yet another “yes” in the picnic proposal department (congratulations to the happy couple!), and arranged for many a romantic picnic with cello performances on the side. So yes, August was definitely full of love!

We are so excited to share two new additions to our menu!! They are both healthy snacking and drinking options, and they are soooo good we just can’t get enough! We hope you’ll love them as much as we do.

Pipcorn: delicious mini popcorn made in NYC in a variety of flavors (and if you know what’s good for you, you’ll get a truckload of their truffle popcorns. Addition may ensue. You’ve been warned). A fun-sized, healthy twist on your favorite movie theatre-style popcorn! The newest guilty pleasure of the 21st century. PIP PIP HOORAY with us because these ingredients are all natural, gluten free, non-GMO, vegan, and whole grain.

Gingermint Mombucha: stay in your lane, kale smoothies, because THIS gingermint kombucha is the epitome of a trendy, healthy drink. 100% authentic raw Kombucha. This tart, refreshing beverage has amazingly strong flavor and includes purified water, organic sugar, whole ginger root, and fresh mint. This striking combo will make you think twice about checking out other drinks. This is your new go-to if you need to refresh your mind or improve your digestion!

Big thanks to Croissant’s Co-Founder Davel Idell for featuring us in their Croissant Insider blog! Check out this post for great tips by our very own Marta Antonelli on how to build your brand and content.

Also, big shout-out to the Yelp Elite Squad for an amazing event! We hosted about a hundred of fair ladies and gentlemen for a picnic experience around the Heckscher Playground area in Central Park, and it was amazing! We couldn’t have done it without the help of our delicious co-sponsors: All Beauty Water, Kanpekies and Spoonable Spirits – can’t send enough hugs and love your way! Not only we got to meet a lot of really cool people, but we also got to play croquet, cornhole, and QB football with them. So thank you, thank you, thank you!! You can check out their glowing reviews of the event here.

August was an amazing month, full of love and picnics… and oh-so-many company events!

Are we excited about September? Heck yeah! We are going to the coolest, most secretive, mass picnic of them all: Dîner en Blanc! That’s right, on September 15th we’ll be joining thousands of New Yorkers for an exclusive everything-white fest, very fancy stuff. Granted, you need to bring your own table and chairs, but you can also order your picnic fare & drinks from Upicnic, complete with white roses for the table.

September is shaping up to be an unbelievable month, full of warm, breezy weekends perfect for lazy picnics, and even more perfect for playing games in the park. If you have children, you are probably very happy that august is over and the little monsters are back in school, so you can resume regularly scheduled life.

Enjoy the best month of the summer, bask in the glory of perfect picnic weather, resist the urge for those pumpkin spice lattes, and as always, go picnic!
