About Us


Tierra Thorne

Blanket & Board is an event planning company co-owned by social workers, Tierra Thorne and Colleen Peddycord. We provide charcuterie boxes and pop up luxury picnics in the city of Pittsburgh. Our services include ready to eat charcuterie boxes, luxury picnic set ups, catering for private events, and shelf stable gift boxes. With the current COVID-19 crisis, Blanket & Board provides a space for people to come together safely to engage in socialization and self care. As both a female and minority owned business, we also want to create safe spaces where people of all backgrounds can feel seen and heard. 


Our mission is to uplift the at-risk populations in the community by highlighting local non-profits and donating a portion of our proceeds to programs that support equality and human rights.
