Basics

How does a picnic work?

When you're ready to book, let us know the basics for your picnic:

  • Theme (Check availabile themes in the gallery)

  • Number of people that will attend

  • Date/time of the picnic (must be at least two weeks from the date the booking is made)

  • Location/Address

Once we have all of your details, we will send an invoice to complete the booking. The booking is not complete, and we will not start preparing for your picnic until the invoice is paid. When payment is recieved, we will begin the research, planning, and preparation for your event.

 

On the date of the event, we will arrive to setup ~60 minutes before the picnic starts and return when it ends for pickup.

Cancel/Reschedule

What if I need to cancel or reschedule?

If you choose to reschedule for any reason, you must notify us at least 7 days before your event. You can reschedule for any date (subject to availability) within 365 days. Within 7 days, a $100 rescheduling fee will apply.

If you choose to cancel for any reason, no refund will be issued.

Picnics ARE transferable, so if you are no longer able to have a picnic, you can give it to a friend.

Bad Weather

What if the weather does not cooperate?

In the event of rain or extreme weather, Miko Events will inform you that your picnic will need to either be moved inside, or rescheduled(no fee). If you prefer to cancel entirely, a 50% refund will be available.

If you will not be able to reschedule, we recommend having a backup location indoors.

If you have opted to include the decorative teepee tent with your picnic, but there is wind of 10mph or higher, the tent will be excluded and refunded.

DIY

We offer a Do It Yourself option to anyone who would like to book a sleepover on a date that already has a full schedule (or anyone who prefers it). We deliver everything you need for your sleepover, with instructions on how to set it up, and return the next day to collect it.

The $50 setup fee does not apply if you opt to DIY.

Once we have all of your details, we will send an invoice to complete the booking. The booking is not complete, and we will not start preparing for your sleepover until the invoice is paid.

 

On the date of the event, we will arrive to setup the custom sleepover experience between noon and 4pm and return the following day during the same timeframe for the pickup. 

If you use the DIY option, have everything packed and ready for pickup by noon.

Travel within the twin cities and surrounding suburbs is included in our standard travel fee ($50), which applies to all events. For events outside of the twin cities area, additional fees will be determined case by case.

What age is this targeted to?

Damage

What happens if something is damaged during my sleepover?

Accidents happen, but we like to avoid them as much as possible. Here are a few tips to avoid causing damage:

  • Keep pets away. Animal hair takes a lot of time for us to clean and is the quickest way to an excessive cleaning fee.

  • If you're going to have food, stick to dry foods like popcorn and avoid sauces - especial red sauces.

  • Set some common sense ground rules - No bouncing on the beds, standing on the tables, climbing on tents, or throwing things

In the event that an item is damaged or soiled, the following fees will apply:

  • Excessive Cleaning Fee - $10 per item. 

Damaged Items that need to be replaced:

  • A-Frame Tent-(wooden legs or dowels)-$25 each

  • Fabric Canopies- $50

  • LED Fairy Lighting- $5 per strip

  • Inflatable Mattresses- $20 

  • Fitted Sheets- $15 

  • Blankets- $15

  • Decorative/Throw Pillows- $15

  • Adjustable Bed Tray-$25

  • Lantern- $10

  • Air Pump $25
