As the weather gets warmer, we all start migrating outdoors into family get-togethers, social gatherings, soirees, and trips to the lake. To bring attention to one of our already favorite Southern traditions, June 18 is International Picnic Day!
With July 4th coming up, what better time is there to break in your red-checkered blanket? Dust off your wicker basket, pack some potato salad, and round up some good conversation – you deserve a break.
Here are four simple ways to have a foolproof picnic.
- Make It A Potluck – Asking friends to bring sides will make your job easier – and you’re guaranteed to have something for everyone.
- Don’t Overcommit – There’s no need to complicate the menu for this casual affair! Quick recipes like Italian Skewers and Mini Bacon, Tomato, and Basil Sandwiches are both delicious and easy to transport.
- Take It Easy – Picnics don’t need to be stressful gatherings; they can be as simple as getting out of the kitchen, enjoying the fresh air, and soaking up the sunshine with a White Peach Sangria Pop in hand.
- Go On An Adventure – If you have a traveling spirit, try exploring a new spot. Many parks have beautifully landscaped areas specifically for your picnic enjoyment.
