Picnic By Design 2014

The House of Oasis is happy to announce that we will be designing a picnic vignette for Picnic By Design benefiting DIFFA. Design is an exciting summer event that highlights design, food and fun for a good cause. The event redefines the concept of a traditional picnic and aims to engage a new generation with DIFFA. Designers are provided with general basket requirements and their over-the-top designs are then sold online in advance. When guests arrive, they are escorted to their one-of-a-kind designer picnic set-up, which they take home with them after the festivities.
