      Together we can do more!

      At Straws ’n Berries we love to work together with other local startups or small companies. In this way we can also give you something extra for the perfect picnic for your birthday, bachelorette party or girls night. But who are the companies we work with? We would love to tell you more about them.


      Born Rosé

      Born Rosé is a company that makes delicious rosé. They think that the world of wine should be more laid-back and fun. That’s why they created a different and new brand in El Born, Barcelona. The brand Born Rosé is inspired by the international movement of the rosé of the French Provence, the West coast of the United States, Scandinavian countries and the United Kingdom. The rosé of Born Rosé is a reflection and inspiration of the Barcelona lifestyle. The city is light and has an open character. That’s why the rosé is fresh, light and easy to drink and perfect to add to your picnic in the sun!



      Casa de Pastel

      Casa de Pastel makes beautiful cakes and sweets in our studio in Poble Nou. The company was founded by a Dutchy, Lauren who learnt her skills at a pastry school in London and loves nothing more than creating extravagant and funky cakes.
      The cakes she makes are for all kinds of events such as birthdays, baby showers, kids’ parties and weddings. You can customize your cake via the cake shop, and she will create the cake that you wished for. In this way you can make your picnic party in Barcelona even more special. It’s also possible to follow one of her physical workshops or grow as a baker though the online pastry school.



      La femme floral

      How could you better celebrate spring than with flowers? At La femme floral you can find very pretty flower bouquets. They really give you that extra glam to your picnic.  La Femme floral makes all kinds of different flower bouquets. In this way there will always be something that you love!

      We LOVE love and were all here for romantic getaways. And you know what a great place is to spend a romantic holiday with your lover, you guessed it…. MARBELLA. Which is why we want to tell you all about the cutest and most romantic date ideas in Marbella, for you to surprise your lover and have the most romantic getaway ever. Of course, a romantic picnic in Marbella is already an amazing date idea, but we want to tell you some more romantic ideas. So, keep reading for all the date ideas to make your holiday to Marbella perfect.


      1. A romantic beach picnic

      Kind off speaks for itself, right? Have you not seen all of the romantic picnics on our Instagram? Imagine that on one of the gorgeous beaches of Marbella. PERFECT! So, a romantic picnic in Marbella should definitely be on your lists of activities.


      1. Beach walk during sunset

      Just imagine, you’ve just finished your romantic beach picnic on one of the beautiful beaches of Marbella, and now the sun starts setting, and you and your lover take a romantic stroll along the coast. Who does not want that, right?


      1. Getting lost in the small streets of Marbella Old Town

      Old Town Marbella sounds like everything an old town should be: narrow streets, windowsills bursting with blooms., just the feeling of the simple pleasures in life. Start in Plaza de los Naranjos and explore the rest from there. Strolling around this charming Old Town is definitely a very romantic thing to do. After exploring, sit and enjoy some Andalusian wine in the square and watch the day go by.


      1. Horse riding over the beach of Marbella

      O M G… Also speaks for itself, right? How romantic would it be for you and your lover to be horse riding during sunset, over the stunning beaches of Marbella. Sounds pretty romantic to us. The Stables Estepona offers everything you need!


      1. Sail away on a luxurious yacht

      There’s nothing as luxurious as hanging out on your own private yacht. We’ve always wanted to explore by boat, and Marbella seems like the perfect place to charter a vessel. There are options for sailing boats, power boats, and catamarans, and the various yacht charter companies such as Nautica Marbella, offer all kinds of luxury features and upgrades. We’re picturing watching the sunset over the water with a delicious cocktail in our hands. Sigh….


      1. Explore the exciting nightlife of Marbella

      A romantic holiday involves a lot of time spent just the two of you, but in the evenings, it’s time to get out and explore the thrills outside your hotel room! Marbella has a lot to offer in the way of nightlife. You can certainly go dancing at one of the many clubs, and Puerto Banus is a huge party spot, but be sure to make time to attend a traditional flamenco show as well!


      1. Explore Marbella in a different way from a helicopter tour

      One of the coolest things to do near Marbella is to take a helicopter tour. Not only is riding in a helicopter seriously fun, you’ll see the Costa del Sol from an entirely new angle. The spectacular water and beaches look amazing from above, plus, this is a unique and special experience…. Exactly what a romantic trip deserves.


      1. Get pampered in a spa or at an Arabic hammam

       Of course, when you’re on a romantic getaway with your lover there is no stress in sight ;). But you don’t need to be stressed to have an excuse to go to the spa! Enjoy a delicious and relaxing day with you hubby in one of the beautiful spas or Arabic baths Marbella has to offer.


      1. Wine tasting tour to Ronda

      A wine tasting tour on a vineyard in Ronda is a nice surprise. The trip also offers excellent mountain scenery and a strong contrast to the coast. Many tour operators offer wine tasting routes, including transport.


      We hoped to have given you an idea of what you and your lover can do in Marbella for your romantic getaway, and maybe now you have an excuse to finally go there. We hope to see you for a beautiful picnic in Marbella! <3

      How to celebrate your birthday in Barcelona

      How to celebrate your birthday in Barcelona


      Would you like to celebrate your birthday in beautiful Barcelona? And would you like to do this in a special way, with nice extras and fun activities? But yes, Barcelona has so much to offer that we can imagine that you don't really know what to do and especially where to do it. That's why we have listed a number of fun activities and services to give you a little more inspiration.


      Escape room

      An escape room is an activity you do in a team, where you’ll get a limited amount of time, to solve a mystery. The perfect activity of course for your birthday in Barcelona, or as a teambuilding activity at a bachelorette in Barcelona! You can solve this mystery using puzzles and riddles. The door of the area will be locked and then it's a race against time to escape from the area as quickly as possible. To escape from that area, you will be given various clues, which will help you step by step towards the final key or code. The time you’ll get for solving the mystery is usually an hour but can also be longer.

       Getting out of an escape room is a big challenge, because it requires you to think carefully and work in a team. How nice is it to do an escape room as a bachelor party in Barcelona and then combine it with a picnic at Straws'n Berries? Or if you celebrate your birthday in Barcelona?

      Here you’ll find the best rated escape rooms in the city, so success is guaranteed!


      Bar hopping

      Birthday picnic

      The best and maybe even the most original way to celebrate your birthday in Barcelona, is to do that with a picnic. You can book this picnic at Straws ‘n Berries. We listen to all your wishes! Whether you’re a vegetarian, eat gluten free, want your picnic in you fave colours or want to celebrate it on a special location, everything is possible! We make sure that everything is ready when you come to your birthday picnic and the only thing you have to do is to enjoy. Because of covid it’s, sadly, not allowed to meet up with more than 10 people. But, we can unsure you that we despite that make a party out of it!


      Luxury boat trip 

      Cruiser Co Barcelona is a new company in Barcelona. At Cruiser Co you can rent a luxury boat, with a skipper, that will show you the beautiful coast of Barcelona. The water of the Mediterranean Sea is super blue, so looks attractive to swim in, which is possible of course. How cool is it to see the sun go down and the horizon turn orange while sailing?! A super experience and a very good way to celebrate your birthday in Barcelona. Check out their Instagram for more information 


      High tea picnic at strawsnberries

      Do you want to enjoy a real English high tea with some of your best friends, in the form of a picnic? Then think about a high tea picnic party in Barcelona! We'll take care of the real English tea, scones with clotted cream, sandwiches, cakes and even cava if you like! And all this at one of the most beautiful locations in Barcelona. Think of the beach, or in a quieter place like the Turó park. But you could also book it if you want to surprise your best friend for her birthday, how fun is that?!



      Of course, your birthday isn't complete without a cake. Did you know that we work together with Casa de Pastel? She turns cakes into a real work of art, which makes it almost a shame to eat the cake. Not in the mood for a cake? The cakepops and brownies are not to be missed. Check out the Instagram of Casa de Pastel for the most beautiful cakes. (At your own risk, because you want everything) 











      Straws 'n Berries is coming to Marbella!

      Straws 'n Berries is coming to Marbella!

      After two succesfull years in Barcelona & Ibiza we decided (and had some extra time thanks to Covid) to expand. 
      For a little while we have been working behind the scenes on bringing Straws ‘n Berries to a new location in Spain. After receiving many requests for picnics in this location, we finaaaaaally listened to you. A lot of you speculated on our Instagram already, and a couple of you already guessed it……. Are you ready??? 


      Straws' n Berries is coming to MARBELLA!


      Before we tell you about what you can expect from us and where we will be providing picnics, we would like to introduce you to Daphne, our Straws 'n Berries host in Marbella. Daphne will ensure that every picnic you book in Marbella will be an unforgettable and unique experience!


      Our Marbella picnic host is Daphne, a Dutchie living in Spain for over 10 years. 


      'Throughout my life I have had the pleasure of traveling, learning and seeing the world thanks to my various jobs in hospitality.

      Dubai, Barcelona, Mallorca, Ibiza and Amsterdam have been my favourite places so far.

      I would like to introduce you to Marbella in the Costa del Sol part of Andalucía which is in the south of Spain. 

      I have to say there are few places like Andalusia that are filled with great people, a lot of sun, amazing beaches and delicious food! 

      My aim is to give you a feeling of the Andalusian roots through our sophisticated picnics. 

      For those who come to Marbella or surroundings I encourage you, to get know us.  We can prepare a picnic for you on the beach, in the mountains or in any corner of this beautiful land, feel and get to know the Andalusia through Straws 'n Berries'


      Where can you find us? A picnic can be booked anywhere between Marbella and Malaga, whether you want to surprise your loved one with a picnic in the city-park of Malaga, at the beach in Torremolinos or we come to set up at your terrace or garden.

      Why did we choose Marbella? The weather is very picnic friendly most of the time; Costa del Sol, which is the area around Marbella and Malaga, has a Mediterranean climate, which means that they have hot, dry summers and short and mild winters. January is the 'coldest' month, but even then, it's an average of 14 degrees. So, always warm enough to enjoy a picnic! In every town they also have a market every day, from local products to designers.

      Marbella is a city with a very high level of luxury and has been nicknamed 'Saint-Tropez of Spain'. Take a walk through the marina, you will be amazed with one yacht bigger than the other. Also, the luxury shops are not to be missed. You can do some serious (window) shopping. Marbella has more than twenty sandy beaches for you to relax and get your tan on. But of course, there are plenty of restaurants with delicious food! Marbella has a beautiful old centre, Casco Antiguo. Don't miss out on this, it’s beauuutiful!!

      Did you know that Picasso was born in Malaga? Malaga has more than 25 different museums, with the Picasso museum being one of them. When you visit the beach, you will find many restaurants selling grilled sardines, since they are very popular. It's very convenient that the beach is only a 10-minute walk from the city centre. Just like Marbella there are many shops you can visit in Malaga as the city has plenty of nice boutiques. The last thing you really shouldn't forget to visit is Alcazaba & Gibralfaro. The fort Alcazaba was built in the 11th century and Castillio de Gibralfaro in the 14th/15th century. These highlights are wonderful to visit, so be sure to visit them! All in all, a great place to go and also many lovely picnic spots!

      Originally Torremolinos was a fishing village, but now it is a very popular place to celebrate your holiday. Aside from the beaches we really love Battery Park. In this park you will find the Mirador Tower. This tower is about 15 meters high, so from above you have a beautiful view and it's also a lovely place for a picnic.

       Are you celebrating your birthday, or do you have a bachelorette party to organize? We are happy to help! Book a picnic with us and we will take care of the food, the picnic set up and the decoration, all to your taste. All you have to do is to bring your friends or family! 

       Orrrr are you finally ready to make the long-awaited proposal? There is no better way to do that than with a picnic. The complete set up, including a nice bottle of cava and the necessary flower petals, we take care of it! Success guaranteed ;)


      Soooo where are you waiting for???


      See you in Marbella or surroundings ;)))
