The perfect spring picnic can either be the ideal romantic evening or a great day with loved ones. While a variety of finger foods, including fresh fruit, cheese, nuts, etc. are critical, there are other essentials you need to know about. These six essentials are the perfect touches to make your spring picnic a masterpiece.
Any old blanket won’t do. The perfect picnic blanket is waterproof on one side and large enough to spread out and set up. Make sure your picnic blanket fills the bill.
No picnic is complete without a picnic basket. It has become the iconic symbol of picnics everywhere. The basket needs to be large enough to carry all the items you bring along and light enough to carry from your vehicle to the picnic location.
3. PLATES AND UTENSILS
Picnics are more civilized than eating a bag of take-out on a park bench. The perfect picnic acknowledges the little details that make this a special outing. One of those details is eating on a plate and using actual utensils to dish out and eat (if not sticking to finger foods) the food you bring along.
4. BOTTLE OF WINE AND WINE GLASSES
If wine isn’t your style, then bring along another drink and glasses from which to enjoy it. Additionally, if you bring wine, you need to include a wine opener in your basket. Otherwise, you might get a little thirsty while looking at your bottle of wine.
5. SMALL BAG FOR GARBAGE
No one wants to be a litter bug and you don’t want to mess up your beautiful basket by filling it with garbage from your spring picnic. Make sure to bring a spare bag for garbage and dispose it at your first opportunity once the picnic is over.
6. MOIST WIPES AND HAND SANITIZER
Depending on where you are taking your picnic, soap and water may be in short supply. Moist wipes are great for cleaning up and hand sanitizer ensures hands are clean enough for eating finger foods.
