With spring in full swing, it’s the perfect time to plan a picnic. Spring is such a fantastic season. Not only do the flowers bloom and the grass turns bright green, the weather is simply gorgeous, not too hot and never too cold. This is the perfect excuse to get the girls together on a sunny afternoon and have a picnic. It is the perfect past-time and an opportunity to indulge your whimsical girly side, with floral prints, pastel colors and tulle.
While you can have a picnic practically anywhere, your choice of setting will set the tone and determine what exactly you bring along. Nothing beats a great picnic in a park. Usually parks have a special shaded picnic area for the public. Try and find a park with a lot of grass area so once everyone is done eating you can play some fun outdoor activities.
For a picnic, foods that travel well are a must. Think perfect mini picnic sandwiches, pasta salad, or hearty greens like kale that don’t wilt in the heat. Fresh fruit is another good choice, along with a selection of cheese. And don’t forget a thermos full of floral infused lemonade or iced tea. Oh and the wine for the girl talk!!
While your picnic spot will determine exactly what you tote along, there are a few items I recommend having in your picnic arsenal.
There are a few extra things that can make your picnic an even bigger success. One is a portable speaker to blast your picnic playlist. You can also bring along a fun activity like supplies to make flower crowns or a your own jewelry.
