WE ARE ROMANTICS AT HEART AND  BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP!

We have created the most unique picnics in East London. It’s not just a picnic, but an experience! If you want to propose, celebrate an anniversary, have a special birthday, staff lunch, team building, baby shower, bachelorette party, supper club or just want some time together with the one you love, friends or family, then this is for you! Take a moment to unplug, slow down and just breathe.

All you have to do is choose your picnic package, a theme – or let us create the magic for you, and we’ll take care of the rest. All our picnics are hosted at our very own picnic garden in the heart of Vincent, Urban Roots.

We have partnered with an independent caterer to bring you the most delicious food that is plated on crockery to compliment your theme, and is served picnic style. It is made with love and the freshest ingredients to ensure you walk away completely satisfied.

We have our very own picnic garden in the middle of Vincent, Urban Roots! It is clean, safe, central, private, tranquil and stunning! When you book a Designer Picnic, you get exclusive use of the garden. We have a large undercover area we use in the event of unfavourable weather conditions. It has an on-site guest toilet and wash hand basin. We have a Bluetooth speaker for your listening pleasure.

 

VENUE HIRE - R1000

We provide the venue, you provide everything else.

Urban Roots is a picnic garden, and is suitable for an intimate event, product launch, workshop, team building, yoga classes, meditation or holistic workshops, book signing, baby shower, bridal shower, etc.

It is not a loud party venue, but we do have a bluetooth speaker for background music, we do not have braai facilities,  and our garden is  unfortunately not suitable for children’s parties.

We have a strict 10pm curfew.

Use of venue with a picnic set up

We work from a blank slate for every picnic. Each setup is unique and created just for you. It includes the hiring of all our picnic equipment, set up & clean up service, table styling & design, tablecloth, overlays & runners, faux and/or fresh flowers and water & wine glasses.     

Our picnics are set up on a low table with scatter cushions or high tables and chairs.
