Depending on your diet, we will supplement your board with extra items such as fruits, vegetables, crackers and cheeses. Gluten free crackers and vegan cheeses are also available. Just let us know when you book.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
In Pittsburgh we have to get creative when the weather gets finicky. We can change the location, put up a canopy tent, or if it's real stormy we can reschedule to a sunnier day.
HOW WILL I FIND YOU?
Once you book, you will receive contact information. A map of exactly where to meet for your picnic will be sent the day of. We will have a sign and a staff member waiting to greet you.
CAN I BOOK A LARGE PARTY?
Due to COVID-19, Blanket & Board is unable to set up picnics for large parties. If you would like to book a larger event in your own space, we recommend requesting a quote for our Special Occasion Picnic.

Picnics are a great social distancing activity! Guests are encouraged to have a mask on when not eating.

All items at your picnic including linens and dishes are washed and sanitized after each and every picnic.
