I LOVE picnics. Dessert picnics, savory picnics, brunch picnics, it doesn’t matter—I love them all! I want to share my tips for bringing your picnic game to the next level.
To me, the most important part of a picnic is the location. I like to pick a flat, open area. Sunny, but not too sunny is ideal. Most days, your backyard or your local park will suffice, but driving to a scenic location, possibly by the water or to a botanical garden, will vastly improve the experience.
Next, you need adequate supplies; nothing fancy, but I like to go for cute and comfortable. Your picnic blanket can make or break a cute picnic photo, so opt for either a solid, pastel-colored blanket or a patchwork quilt. Investing in a picnic blanket that is water-resistant will make picnic time so much more comfortable on wet grass.
As for the food, I like to stick to a theme. Sometimes, I’ll stick to classic desserts, and other times I’ll go with savory: mini sandwiches, pasta salad, and your favorite chips always taste delicious. Or if you’re feeling super adventurous, try color coordinating your food or arranging a cute charcuterie board.
