While many of us are fired up for fall corn mazes and Pumpkin Spice lattes, most of us still wish we didn’t have to put summer away. Luckily, Hey Sweet Cincy, a luxury picnic and event-planning business, is keeping both seasons alive by bringing the outdoors, indoors ... this fall (and beyond!).
Owner Julie Dye has partnered with the Marmalade Lily to host an array of unforgettable moments on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings at the flower farm—even during the colder fall and winter months—utilizing their indoor space.
But that’s just the start. Hey Sweet Cincy stands out from typical picnic-planners by offering several additional creative options.
“What sets us apart from other companies is that we are truly a one-stop-shop,” Julie says. “Most other companies contract out for food, photography and extras like bouquets or proposal planning—I plan everything from the food to the photos. Plus, we are cost-friendly in comparison to most companies in the area. As a full-time high school teacher, this is truly just a fun and creative outlet for me.”
Take one look at Hey Sweet Cincy’s Instagram and Facebook pages, and you’ll see for yourself—the settings and arrangements are truly to die for.
“I also do stylized photography sessions for couples, families, friends and more,” Julie explains. “In addition, I provide gourmet dessert boards, chocolate breakable hearts, treat boxes, cupcakes and floral bouquets. We’re kind of all-in-one!”
