Hi, I'm Alex Hofler

Hello! Welcome to Pepper Sprout Picnics and Events, I'm so glad you're here!

Our hope is to help you create memories and meaningful moments with those you love most. We promise to be here along every step of the way to help you bring your dreams to life and create your perfect date, engagement, girls day, small event or bachelorette! Inquire or book today to become apart of the Pepper Sprout family!

Psst- Wondering where the name Pepper Sprout came from? It was inspired by none other than legend Johnny Cash's song Jackson - "We got married in a fever, Hotter than a Pepper Sprout"

"We had such a nice time on our picnic. Not only was the place setting beautiful and the charcuterie delicious, the owner thought of all the little details to make it an enjoyable experience. I highly recommend a sunset timeframe! It was a unique and fun way to spend a summer evening with some special women in my life."
