As the sun begins to set over Ghana’s sprawling capital of Accra, it’s impossible to miss the elaborate picnic set-ups that dot the city’s parks and beaches.

With an eye for detail, a focus on aesthetics, and expertise in hospitality, Picnics by Elles began creating luxurious and Instagram-worthy picnic experiences unlike anything that had been seen before in Ghana.

Her vision quickly became popular and people began knocking on her door for a taste of the experience. Today, picnics are a thriving business within the events and hospitality industry.
