On Trend: Sweet T Picnics

Sweet T Picnics owner Marcie Trivette enjoys a country classic-themed picnic at Walnut Street Park in Cary. The luxury picnic business offers a variety of picnic packages for those who do not want the hassle.

Putting together a Pinterest-worthy picnic, complete with a woven basket, delicious food and beautifully themed decor, can be a hassle — unless you have someone to do it for you. Sweet T Picnics, a luxury picnic service, will set up a themed picnic for you anywhere in the Triangle — perfect for surprising your loved ones.

Owned by former Miss North Carolina Marcie Trivette, Sweet T Picnics partners exclusively with local artisans to provide a uniquely sweet, Southern experience.

“Preston Flowers & Gifts, in Cary, is just one of the many local partnerships we’ve created with Sweet T Picnics,” said Trivette. “They have been absolutely phenomenal at designing the most gorgeous arrangements for our luxury picnic settings. We ask, and they deliver every single time.”

Trivette shares sweet tea with friend Matt Walsh in the “Winter Igloo” tent, a cozy option for an outdoor picnic during the cold winter months. Each picnic package includes blankets, pillows, picnic baskets and all utensils. Menus provided by local artisans are also available.

After years of living out of state and working in property management, Trivette moved back to North Carolina, quit her job and started the business just last year. Trivette’s career change was inspired by her love of the outdoors, yummy food and (of course) sweet tea.

“I believe the year 2020 taught everyone a lot, myself included. Time is so precious, and you can’t get it back,” she said. “I wanted to create a space where sweet memories could be made with smiles, laughter and togetherness. It’s not just about having a picnic. It’s about having an incredible experience with those you cherish.”

If you’re ready for a little luxury, visit their website and pick your picnic. If you’re worried about the weather, don’t be — Sweet T Picnics offers clear igloo tents for heated picnics on the chilliest of days. All cleanup is included, so you can leave happy and worry free.
