Tips for Planning the Perfect Picnic

by - 3/19/2019 12:00:00 AM


I am a huge fan of picnics I think it’s such an affordable date night idea for any couple. It doesn’t require a lot of time and it also doesn’t require a lot of money. You can go from having a budget-friendly picnic to a luxury picnic it really is up to you. Last year one of my goals was to at least have one picnic with the Mr. in the Rosegarden at least once a month. It’s such a great way to just be in the moment and enjoy each other‘s company. For some people when I hear the word picnic they get super stressed out and they really don’t know where or how to start going about planning a picnic, honestly, it really doesn’t take much but your imagination. below I’m sharing some tips to create the perfect picnic whether you’re going somewhere with your spouse or your Bestie or deciding to have a picnic in your backyard.

Location
What I love about picnics is that you really could have them pretty much anywhere I have several places in my state that I love to visit however even having a picnic in your backyard really is fun as well. So as you’re looking for the perfect spot to have your picnic if you have a hard time finding a perfect location what about your backyard what about a local park what about a local flower a rose garden. Ask around, your friends and coworkers might have a place that they've enjoyed visiting.

Food
Food is one of the most important parts of any picnic however this doesn’t have to be a stressful situation. You can easily go to your Local grocery store and pick up the items that you need prior to going to your picnic destinations. There are times where everything is homemade and there are also times where the Mr. and I will pick up a bottle of wine and our favorite Chinese food and go to our favorite destination and enjoy a meal. Don’t feel like you have to create the perfect meal and spend hours in the kitchen, decide on what you would love to have to eat and then work around that.

Budget
What I love is that about our picnics is that we typically create a budget for them. This is something that you don’t necessarily have to do however we love finding creative ways to have budget-friendly date nights. It’s really amazing we surprise each other each time with how well we're able to stay under budget. Create a budget and a list of the items that you want and need in order to execute the perfect picnic for you and your and spouse or guest.

Essentials
Is also very important to have your essentials like your picnic basket blanket and of course items like hand sanitizer. Make sure that you have your essentials on hand and in a designated spot so if you do decide to go on a picnic on the whim, you know where everything is located at I typically will have a blanket in my trunk in the spring and summer months just in case we decide to go to a local park or beach and have a picnic.

Do you have any tips for planning the perfect picnic?
