Boujee Picnic Launches Indoor Picnics

Boujee Picnic is a luxury picnic business located in Cedar Rapids, elevating the traditional picnic experience with beautiful table décor, a low-standing table, pillows, dinnerware and a customized chalkboard sign. New in 2023, Boujee Picnic is offering indoor picnics in Marion at the West End Diner.

Owner and operator, Carissa Johnson, started the business in September of 2021 after seeing a need for unique experiences in Eastern Iowa. With over five years of event creation and management experience, Johnson knew her love of creating experiences and memories for others would pay off in this business venture.

Boujee Picnic was the first luxury picnic business in Eastern Iowa and is currently the only one in the Cedar Rapids Metro area. These boho-themed picnics are perfect for a romantic date night, an evening out with friends, adult birthday parties, and even bridal showers or bachelorette parties. Picnics can accommodate anywhere from two to 10 people and can be set up in any outdoor, public space. Picnic-goers are welcome to bring their own food and beverage, or guests can purchase select add-on options from various local businesses, which will be picked up and ready to go for your picnic.

New this year for a limited time, Boujee Picnic is now offering indoor picnics in Marion at the West End Diner. There are several small shops located right outside of West End, where small businesses have their storefronts. Boujee Picnic will be located in shop No. 3 for the months of January and February only. These indoor picnics will give the community another option for an activity in the winter. Inside the heated shop, there are twinkle lights covering the windows and hanging from the ceiling, room to hang your coats, as well as the typical picnic offerings – blankets, games, a speaker and water. The space is cozy and inviting and perfect for cold winter nights under the lights. Indoor picnics are $125 for an hour and a half and can be booked for up to four people.

Picnic set-up, tear down, games, Bluetooth speaker and water are all included in your picnic package. Clients work with the Boujee Picnic team to select the perfect outdoor location in the Cedar Rapids area, during the typical picnic season, May to October.
