My Story


Amelia Puhek (aka Mimi) is a Cal Poly Alumni living in San Luis Obispo, California. She studied Experience Industry Management with a concentration in Event Planning. She grew up in Arroyo Grande, California in an old schoolhouse that was eventually transformed into a small wedding venue and Air Bnb. Growing up on the Central Coast, she has helped her mom with hosting small weddings, worked in the hospitality industry for 6+ years and developed a love for everything SLO Cal has to offer. Her favorite moments are spending time with family and friends, reading, playing guitar, enjoying the little things in life and celebrating special milestones.


In the midst of this ongoing pandemic, there has been a shortage in events and people have been social distancing outdoors more than ever. This eventually sparked the idea of small pop-up picnics! With her love of events and passion for bringing friends and families together, the idea came to life and Mimi's Picnics was born!
