Nothing says summer like picnics but gone are the days of sandwiches and the wicker basket and blanket setups we grew up with. Modern picnics have certainly leveled up the game with charcuterie board spreads, table settings (yes, you read that correctly – tables) and pillows provided for optimal comfort. It may sound like a lot, but Uptown Picnic Co. is here to make sure it’s as simple as can be.


Originally founded in Dallas, luxury picnic and event design company, Uptown Picnic Co., was born in the summer of 2020, when best friends and founders, Christy Luspo and Leighann Westfall, combined their creativity, love for design and style and passion for planning to create the ultimate picnic experiences to help people enjoy quality time together in a safe, effortless way. Uptown Picnic Co. has since brought its chic picnic setups to the Baton Rouge area.


Uptown Picnic Co. offers four picnic packages, curated and customized for any occasion. From date night to the ultimate proposal, birthday parties, wedding and baby showers or just for fun, Uptown Picnic Co. is sure to elevate any picnic experience. Each package comes with the choice of six different themes – bohemian, modern, coastal, romantic, neutrals or summer citrus – making the picnic experience completely customizable for your personal taste and style. The best part is, Uptown Picnic Co. will provide all the luxe picnic essentials – you just provide your food and drinks!


"We want to make the process as turn-key as possible for our clients so they can just show up and enjoy the moments that matter the most," says Uptown Picnic Co. founder, Leighann. "For us, personalizing each event quote and picnic design based on our client’s unique vision truly sets us apart from others."
