Although many states are starting to open back up as a result of COVID-19 shutting them down, most people are still somewhat hesitant to venture out into public spaces.

In response to that hesitation, a new trend has emerged, and people across the country are falling in love. Luxury picnics seem to be the new wave in upscale, social distance events that allow friends to hang out together for a few hours.
