Picnic launches new Jardins des Boulingrins

The Société des Bains de Mer has welcomed 400 guests for a spectacular picnic to celebrate the opening of the Jardins des Boulingrins, which formed part of the recent makeover of Monte Carlo’s Casino Square. 

As part of the My Monte-Carlo Loyalty Programme, Jean-Luc Biamonti, President and CEO of the SBM Group, organised this once-in-a-lifetime picnic with the help of designer Charles Kaisin, to officially open the new gardens. It was held under the theme ‘La chance nous sourit’, loosely translated as ‘Luck smiles on us’.

 Ten top chefs and 52 servers dressed as playing cards were charged with ensuring the satisfaction of guests, who sat at elegantly set tables under red umbrellas.

The fairy-tale themed spectacle was rounded out by mountains of fresh flowers adorning the locale, magicians performing to the delight of attendees, and Niçoise artist Virginie Broquet offering guests illustrated memories from the day.   

The event was part and parcel of SBM’s policy of reinforcing its position within Monaco as the most exclusive destination in Europe for 2020.
