If you are an outdoor person that enjoy meals under a tree, lying on the grass and spending time with nature, then a picnic is the perfect fit. You may enjoy the great outdoors rather than organizing a dinner party at home. So, gather you entire family and close friends to spend some time outside, chatting, having delicious food, playing various games and just having fun. Here are a few steps to follow.
Choose a scenic spot
You don’t have to go too far to pick the perfect spot. A garden, park, beach, rooftop with a great view or a farmhouse; all are great picnic places. Make sure the location is safe; there shouldn’t be any venomous bugs or bees around. Check the weather of the area so that your beautiful day will not be ruined by rain. However, you need to be prepared for it too.
Ask your kids to design cute invitation cards for the guests. Include the date, time, location, anything they need to bring such as a swimsuit and extra playsuits Melbourne, in case there is a lake that you all could have a dip in. you can even enter any food requirements they have to bring. A picnic is always fun when everyone brings some sort of food. It increases variety. Distribute the invitations well in advance so that they can RSVP if they can’t make it. Once they have all confirmed, prepare the guest list and take a count to have a rough idea of how big the picnic would be. You can plan your foot, furniture and sheets to take.
Prepare the food
The best to go for are finger foods rather than heavy meals. They are easy to eat and are hassle free. People of all ages can enjoy some quality food items. The most common are sandwiches, chips and dip, salads, fruits, hot dogs, buns, lemonade etc. Be aware of all the people that will be present; some may be vegetarian while some elderly people may not be able to consume too much sugar. As mentioned before, ask all families to bring a few dishes so that you can all share and enjoy.
Dress for the occasion
You need to dress as comfortable as possible. A light strapless jumpsuit with some sandals would do. Also don’t forget to apply insect repellent and sunblock. Bring an extra set of clothes too, in case you spill something or decide to have a dip.
You don’t need to sit under a tree all day, chatting and eating. Plan activities for all. Bring a ball or other toys for the kids, cards, board games or twister for the adults.
