Hi, I'm Amanda!

I am the creator behind Potomac Picnics, providing luxury picnic experiences in the Greater Washington, D.C. area. With a background in Hospitality and an extreme love for event planning and catering, starting this company has been a dream come true. I was very fortunate to be born and raised in Alexandria, VA. From the culture to the history to the beautiful landscapes, the D.C. area has always held a near and dear place in my heart. It has been a dream of mine to start my own business, but never knew where to start. The unpredictability and insanity of 2020 really gave me the motivation to do something that truly makes me happy and so Potomac Picnics was born! I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to share this journey with you, as we create lasting memories for your special occasions.

Testimonials

“We had a great time at our Picnic on the water in Old Town Alexandria! It was so nice showing up and having a great spot reserved and set up for us. The set up was absolutely beautiful and Potomac Picnic’s had thought of every little detail. We had games, music and even a Polaroid camera to commemorate the day! They provided plenty of food and we were even able to take our leftovers home. Amanda was very communicative and made the day seamless. We look forward to using Potomac Picnics again for hosting Birthday Parties and other special events!”

“Potomac Picnics was an experience my boyfriend and I will never forget. When we arrived our host Amanda had a romantic setup ready for us. It included music, a Polaroid camera, tasty charcuterie board, blankets, card games, champagne, candles, and over all just a memorable experience. Amanda made us feel special and not rushed. If you are looking to surprise that special someone in your life and give them an unforgettable experience call Potomac Picnics. I will definitely be a returning customer! 10/10.”
