Boujee Picnic

Phone: 319-540-0696

Address: No store front


Industry: Other

Boujee Picnic was created through a love of creating experiences by our founder, Carissa Johnson. There is nothing like this in the Eastern Iowa area, so why not give our community this unique experience! These boho themed picnics are perfect for a romantic date night, an evening out with friends, or a night out with the kids! We encourage picnic-goers to bring their own food and beverage but leave all the other logistics and details up to us - the picnic professionals. Add-ons are available for an additional fee and upon request. Have an idea in mind, but don't see an option? We would LOVE to help you with your picnic planning, so email us at!
