Picnics, Pals and Proposals

First date? Marriage proposal? Galentine's brunch? Candace Perez can set the scene with her own mode of magic

How did you come up with the idea for Posh Picnic? 

Prior to Covid, I had an event planning business and coordinated social events all over Austin. The pandemic changed everything and events ceased to exist. I knew there had to be a way for people to celebrate their birthdays, anniversaries, and special moments in a safe, Covid-friendly, glamorous way and luxury picnics were the perfect solution! In May of 2020, The Posh Picnic was born, becoming Austin's first upscale picnic service!

What have you discovered about yourself as a female Latina entrepreneur?

Although race can be a factor in most things in this life, I believe it’s my drive, focus, passion to serve, and genuinely developed friendships that has landed me in the position I’m in. I love my culture and how it’s helped shape who I am as a woman, mother, and business owner. I am a confident, fearless, and powerful Latina!

Tell us about the sweetest situations you’ve witnessed. 

This is a tough one because there are so many to choose from! My absolute favorites were a marriage proposal atop Mount Bonnell and a surprise bachelorette brunch where the bride-to-be was so excited, she cried tears of joy. I live for these moments! 

Why is eating outside so magical? 

People have been picnicking since the beginning of time. Enjoying nature's beauty, feeling the warmth from the sun or cool breeze against your skin while dining with your favorite people is not only whimsical and rejuvenating, but also healing. 

How does time with friends boost your self-love? 

Gathering with loved ones around a beautifully styled picnic, sharing laughs and making memories, brings out your true self - a time where you don't have to worry about being a mom, provider, etc. 

What does self-love mean to you? 

Investing in my growth, being patient with myself while working on my weaknesses, standing tall, and carrying myself with confidence. My form of self-love is living my life with passion, purpose and surrounding myself with the people that bring me joy!
