Pack a Picnic


It’s International Picnic Day!! Before you run out the door and scope out a shady spot at your favorite park to post up and feast, let’s make sure you have everything you’ll need to have an enjoyable afternoon. See our checklist below for all your picnic essentials.

The Essentials

Having all your picnic essentials packed is extremely important because you can’t run back in your house to grab any forgotten items (unless you’re picnicking in your backyard, which is fun, too). A comfy picnic blanket is a must, along with a cooler bag to store chilled foods and beverages. A “picnic basket” backpack equipped with all the necessities like silverware, dishes, and extra storage is the most convenient option for your dining needs. A foldable serving table and mesh food covers will keep those pesky bugs away, and a battery-powered mosquito repellent is great if you’re having a sunset or star-gazing picnic. For an adult picnic, a nice bottle of wine and a meat and cheese basket really set the mood. After you’ve imbibed and indulged, don’t forget to clean up – a garbage bag dispenser will allow for easy disposal of your trash.
