In the beginning of 2020, my friend’s wedding was postponed due to the pandemic, so my close friend Coco Chan and I thought it would be nice to throw her and her fiance a cute picnic to celebrate their original wedding date in early October 8.

We received a lot of positive feedback from our close friends, on social media, and even people walking by the picnic, so Coco and I were inspired to expand our idea into a business venture.
We are two Asian American women, born and raised in San Francisco. With Picnic ‘n Chill, our goal is to create a unique experience for people who’ve had to cancel their special day during the pandemic. All around the world, millions of date nights, anniversaries, proposals, baby showers, and birthday celebrations have been postponed. We wanted to create a way for these occasions to still be savored and celebrated safely, by turning a basic picnic into something over the top.
After restless nights building tables, all nighters creating mood boards, and countless shopping runs, Picnic ‘n Chill was born.
We had a grand opening promotion where anyone that booked with us in the month of October would receive a free arch of choice and Sip ‘n Paint, which is our painting activity. I remember with our first customer, we were both so nervous and went to the picnic spot two hours early, to make sure everything was perfect. When the customers arrived, he blindfolded his girlfriend to surprise her for their anniversary. I felt so happy and honored to be a part of their special moment.
After the first few weeks of launch day, we became booked every weekend from Friday through Sunday, hosting two to three picnics per day.

Besides Picnic ‘n Chill, I also have my day job at Captiv8 as a marketing associate and work on public relations as part of my family’s company, Happy Lemon, which is an international bubble tea franchise.
Starting my own business, working two other jobs, and balancing my 23-year-old life has definitely been a rollercoaster. It’s always a challenge, but this drives me to push and I would not have it any other way.
Here’s what a typical weekday in my life looks like.
