Picnics are fun for families and perfect dates for the summertime. It’s a great way to get outside and spend the day. Here are a few things to keep in mind and find on Artfire for your special outing.
What to play:
It’s always fun to have a couple of things to do besides eat on a picnic:) Here are a few games I found on Pinterest that look fun. Do you have any fun games/activities?
-Water games are always fun and it can be as simple as getting some balloons and having the kids fill them up with water and throw at each other.
-Two fun games to prepare with the family before the picnic outing. Crazy can game and bean bags.
-A classic game you can make at home as well, ring toss. This is really cute!
What to eat:
Great ideas on Pinterest for fun picnic themes. Here are some that stood out:
-The classics: Potato Salad, Fried Chicken (surprisingly good cold:), Watermelon, and Deviled Eggs. What are some of your favorites?
-A fun twist on the sandwich. Make it a pinwheel sandwich. Here are the directions from TLC.
-I always think it’s romantic and very Parisian to just have a baguette, fancy cheese, some unique meats (not ham and turkey) and wine for a date.
What to set up with:
What’s a picnic without the picnic basket? I think this is what makes it so exciting. Putting all of the yummy food into this wonderful case! It’s so much fun bringing out all of the goodies. Of course, I love the vintage version. $29
LOVING the idea of dressing up your sandwiches in these Chevron Party Bags. $7
What’s a picnic without the quilt to sit on or put on the picnic table? This is a fun denim version! What a great way to recycle old jeans!? $120
