Sweet T Picnics was born out of the idea to enjoy the simple things in life.  Life is too short to not be happy. Here, we want you to unplug from the world, leave the work behind you, relax & unwind with the ones you love. Our tea is sweet, but the memories you make are even sweeter.

Marcie T. is a true southerner through-and-through. Originally from Concord, North Carolina, her goal is to exemplify the warmth and wholesomeness of the southern hospitality spirit in each Sweet T Picnics encounter. 

As an alumna of Appalachian State University with a BS in Communication, she now utilizes her degree to share Sweet T Picnics with the world. Marcie is a newlywed to her pilot husband, and together they have a very spoiled German Shepherd named Dolly. 

Marcie's main goal is to ensure you're elated with your luxury picnic experience.  In true southern fashion, she wants to make sure your belly's are full, your smiles are endless, your laughs are contagious, and you leave happy but always wanting to come back.


Abi moved to Raleigh, NC, when she was 7-years-old from the United Kingdom, and ever since then has been a Sweet Tea loving girl. She is currently studying marketing and has plans to graduate from North Carolina State University this May!


If you book an early morning picnic, rest assured this girl is setting up with a coffee in hand, and wearing a hoodie (even if it's 80 degrees out). 

Abi is a go-getter, and shares her impressive marketing skills to show off Sweet T Picnics via all the social media platforms, but don't ask her to dance on TikTok. That's a hard pass.

Lydia Mitchell


Lydia, originally from Winston-Salem, NC, now resides in Raleigh, and recently earned her degree in Fashion Textile Management from North Carolina State University. 

She brings a lot of laughs to our Sweet T team, and is always down for a good prank... as long as it's not on her. When Lydia isn't planning the sweetest picnics, she's probably curled up at home binge-watching her new favorite show with her cat, Bella.

Lydia joined Sweet T Picnics to learn the inside scoop on how to run a small business. She now works closely with vendors, managing logistics, and conceptualizing theme ideas.
