The Islet Picnic Singapore Concept
Directing The Islet is Casimir Chia, who is no stranger to the event management scene. The 33-year old shared that the inspiration for The Islet came from his co-founder, Denise Lim, who noticed that party-goers today tend to prioritise on capturing that picture perfect moment when attending outdoor events and festivals. Also, with increasing popularity of picnics in Singapore, the two of them identified and carved out a niche event which they’re confident of attracting attendees beyond their target market.
Drawing inspiration from renowned events such as Coachella and Revolve Festival, The Islet started out with a simple vision, to create a picturesque picnic setting that everyone can be part of. To highlight the nautical theme, you are invited to come in blue and white, in order to transform the lawn into a sea of blue and white hues. Everyone will also be provided with specially-designed Islet picnic blankets to lie on, or to double up as props for that perfect flatlay.
Completing The Islet Picnic Singapore Experience
And of course, what’s a picnic event without food? Although you may bring in your own food, we highly suggest taking the lazier but more convenient option. The Islet’s picnic basket add-on ($68), as well as freshly-prepared food options by Creative Eateries, means that anyone who chooses to come down empty-handed can still leave with a full stomach.
The Straits Wine Company has partnered with The Islet to offer a range to specially- curated wines and champagnes for the event. Also, a bottle of Romeo & Juliet Prosecco will be included in every Picnic Pack ticket purchase. Packed with the flavours of pear, clementine, and white apple, the Italian Prosecco evokes memories of Juliet’s Wall in Verona, Italy.
The Islet has partnered with renowned local blogshop Lara’J for The Islet exclusive collection to help step up your picnic game. With a wide selection of blue and white apparel, ranging from denim bottoms to maxi dresses, you can be sure of getting the perfect outfit for The Islet.
The Islet Picnic Singapore DJs
Setting the tone and leading the beats for the night are DJ Moxide and DJ Shenny. Don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes (or sandals) as these homegrown DJs usher in the sunset with your favourite dance tunes.
