Picnics are awesome, there’s no doubt about that. Ours are usually spontaneous and end only when we are too sweaty, too thirsty, or too itchy from the grass. Here are some ideas to help you plan a picnic that will only end with a plan for another.
1. Make it a party!
Bring your dinner party to the park. Even dare to send actual invitations with this free download from Eat, Drink, Chic. I’m also obsessed with the idea of a Picnic Club. Rotate the “planner” who is in charge of organizing the place, date, and menu assignments. And the best tip? Leave your cell and computer at home.
2. Perfect Picnic Bites
Take-out is just fine. Bread & Cheese. Sushi. Pizza Pies. Rose.
Or…you can always cook…
