Celebrate Picnic Month

JULY IS here and it’s Picnic Month so there’s not better time to gather loved ones, pack some delicious food, and head outdoors for some fun in the sun! Check out our top tips to celebrate…

Pick the Perfect Spot
First things first find your ideal picnic spot. Whether it’s a local park, a beach, or even your garden, make sure it’s a place where you can relax and enjoy nature. Look for a spot with some shade and a nice view.

Pack a Tasty Spread
The food is the star of any picnic. Go for a mix of easy-to-eat finger foods and a few special treats. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Sandwiches: Simple and satisfying. Try different fillings like turkey & avocado or classic BLT.
  • Fresh Fruits: Grapes, strawberries, and apple slices are refreshing and easy to share.
  • Cheese and Crackers: A little bit fancy and a lot delicious.
  • Salads: Pasta salad, potato salad, or a fresh green salad are great sides.
  • Sweet Treats: Brownies, cookies, or even a fruit tart will end things on a sweet note.

Bring the Essentials
Make sure you have everything you need to stay comfy and have fun:

  • Blanket: A big, comfy blanket is a must.
  • Plates, Cups, and Utensils: Go for reusable options to keep things eco-friendly.
  • Napkins and Wet Wipes: Things can get messy!
  • Cooler or Insulated Bag: Keep your food and drinks cool and fresh.
  • Bin Bags: Leave no trace and keep your picnic spot clean.

Add Some Fun Activities
A picnic is not just about eating—add some activities to keep everyone entertained:

  • Games: Bring a frisbee, a soccer ball, or a deck of cards.
  • Music: A portable speaker can set the perfect mood.
  • Books or Magazines: For a more laid-back vibe, bring some reading material.

Capture the Moments
Don’t forget to take some photos! Capture the fun and the beautiful scenery. Whether you’re snapping shots of the food, the games, or just the smiles, you’ll want to remember these moments.
