Go on a Picnic!


Now that Spring has officially sprung, why not enjoy it? Pack a lunch, gather your friends and family, and head out on a lazy, sunny afternoon for a relaxed, rejuvenating picnic.

Picnics are great for groups of all sizes. They feel romantic and intimate with your beloved, and fun and exciting with children. Even the occasional solo picnic with a good book leaves one feeling relaxed and invigorated.


If you're lucky enough to live near a beautiful beach or park, take your picnic there. If not, set up a blanket and plates in your very own backyard! The beautiful thing about picnics is that they're casual with no needs for rules.

Read on for more picnic tips and tricks...

  • Plan a menu that's easy to pack. Think sandwiches, bags of cut up fruit and veggies, cheeses and charcuterie - simple no-muss, no-fuss foods that you enjoy.
  • Don't forget the libations! If the parks permit it, bring a good bottle of vino and some disposable cups. If you're going for a dry picnic, try sparkling water.
  • Remember to pack the heaviest items at the bottom of your picnic basket - no one wants to eat a smashed sandwich!
  • Keep one or two cold packs in your picnic basket to keep drinks and other chilled items cool.
  • Don't forget the non-food essentials such as a good, heavy blanket (those with a waterproof bottom work best), flatware, napkins, plates, cups, and corkscrews. Fun items such as books, frisbees, horseshoes, playing cards, etc. And don't forget the sunglasses and SPF!
  • Make sure to take trash bags - you don't want to leave a mess behind!
  • Have a fabulous time!
