The Perfect Picnic.

November 30, 2020 by

Three SMU Juniors have sure added a bit of color to this semester with their perfectly perfect picnics!

Rosedale Picnic Company is made up of three SMU Juniors: Caroline Jones, Emma Eaker, and Mackenzie Wray. They first met as freshman friends and now have turned into the best of friends and business partners!

“We came up with the idea during the summer when we were all home (Dallas, Tx; Birmingham, AL; and Winston-Salem, NC) we had come across a picnic company in Santa Barbara on Tiktok (where all great ideas are born). We immediately decided that we wanted to put our own spin on these picnics and came up with a whimsical, light, floral look which became Rosedale Picnic Company.”

Each of the girls have their own specialties within in the company in order to keep it running effortlessly. Emma overseas the finances, Caroline does the PR, and Mackenzie does their marketing. All three girls however love decorating the tables capes and coming with ways to incorporate client request into each picnic.

“We also enjoy seeing how happy these picnics make others and that is another favorite and rewarding aspect of the job!”

“The setup process took a bit of time to perfect but we have it down to a science. Since we all live in apartments near campus, we had to get creative with storing all of our dishes, glasses, linens, silverware, pillows, blankets, and of course tables. We put all the items we need before each picnic and split the items between the three of us. We have a fun section on our Instagram highlights called “Tap to Build” where you can see our set up process as well.”

Rosedale Picnic Company have done 30 picnics so far this fall. Right now, they are most excited to see all the picnics this spring holds, once it warms a bit! They are also hoping to expand in order to accommodate larger group sizes.

“A few picnics that stick out to us would be any of our pink picnics (the pink is our signature color). We also love doing bridal shower picnics and also have a lovely all-white set for the bride-to-be. We did a Halloween picnic for an SMU alum and local Dallas influencer which turned out to be a fun tablescape. Lastly, nothing makes us happier than when we set up picnics for fellow SMU students and those are always memorable for us.”

The perfect picnic does exist and Rosedale Picnic Company knows how to do it!
